When you think about your fondest childhood memories, some of them probably include the famous characters from cartoons that popped up on your TV screen every morning. You probably won't feel the same way about these popular characters after seeing this post.

Australian digital artist Wil Hughes, who studies animation at Griffith University in Brisbane, has a unique talent. He turns beloved, usually family-friendly pop culture icons into real nightmare fuel that looks like they clawed their way straight out of Hell. If you've never thought of Homer Simpson, Where's Waldo, or Spongebob as horror characters before, you will be now. Let's be honest, though, and we were all a little creeped out by Ronald McDonald, to begin with. Through his masterful use of shading, he creates realistic textures that give his 3D drawings a horrifying look.

Though Hughes' 3D art is definitely unsettling and he's developed quite a fan base that argues that it's quirky and original. Check the 3D paintings out (at your own risk) below, and get ready never to sleep again.

Mikey tried so hard to look scary... if only he had realized he just had to die, decompose a little bit, come back to life, and apply fake blood to terrify the hell out of people... it couldn't possibly be that hard 👹

He's obviously disgusted but oddly jealous at the fact that he can't sparkle.

There's a Netflix troll? Is he the one that keeps asking me if "I'm still watching..."?
