The Greatest Mural Ever

I found this earlier today and just had to share it with the rest of Internetland. The good folks over at Cartoon Brew recently posted this mural:

A high-res version can be found here.
that was painted on the wall of animator Makinita (aka Andres Silva)'s studio. This...is simply incredible. If you're like me, the thought of searching and recognizing each and every cartoon character on there could only be described as orgasmic. Sure, from this size, you easily see Frankenberry, Uncle Fester, Astro, Mighty Mouse, Sgt. Hatred, Mr. Stay-Puft, Kang & Kodos, and the giant from "The Brave Little Tailor."

But for every chracter you recognize, there's at least 10 that you don't. And this awesome, awesome man went obscure. Like...I thought I was the only person who remembered The Brothers Grunt!

Want to see the rest of them? The man himself has provided the following video which focuses on EACH AND EVERY CHARACTER in detail.

It runs about 15 1/2 minutes, but trust me, if you're an animation buff like I am, this is probably the best 15 minutes you'll spend in quite some time.

BTW, try to find the following characters:

-Rat Fink
-Doug Funnie
-Fritz The Cat
-Eek The Cat & Sharky
-The Groovy Ghoulies
-The Bigheads AND the Fatheads from "Rocko's Modern Life"
-Elmo Aardvark (from The Aardvarks)
-Bobbie Generic
-Earthworm Jim
-Cornfed Pig
-Lupin III
-Pee-Wee Herman
-The Galaxy Goof-ups
-Bob Oblong

Have fun!
