Ed Harrington is an illustrator and cartoon artist who has been creating a series of images that have the potential to ruin some of your best childhood memories.

This artist takes our favorite pop culture characters and portrays what they do when they're not working, revealing their "secret lives." Have you ever seen Ariel who is about to eat Nemo? He-Man straightening his hair? Or Chewbacca shavings his legs? Well, you're about to.
