A popular belief states that the human mind is incapable of creating completely new human faces, but rather mix up the details of images you've already seen before. So how do cartoonists get their inspiration for their animated characters? It turns out that cartoon characters are often derived from real human beings - check out this list of famous cartoon character look-alikes and wonder no more!

As you can see, these real-life doppelgangers are so similar to their cartoon counterparts that it's hard to believe that the latter wasn't modeled on the former. Or maybe the human versions were somehow modeled on the cartoons? Come to think of it, maybe WE'RE the real-life cartoon characters, and we only THINK we're real! It's a terrifying prospect, but before you go freaking out, take a look at this funny list compiled by Bored Panda, and don't forget to send us your pics if you or somebody you know looks suspiciously like your favorite cartoon character in real life.

Wow! There is an amazing resemblance. Even the eyebrow is matching :-) And also Khal Drogo has the scar on the same eye. Khal-Drogo.jpg Khal-Drogo.jpg

I had a colleague, who looked much more like Ned. Unfortunately I never managed to get a good picture of him

You can't just keep putting your dog and say it looks like any animal with a snout
