R-Rated Movies Reimagined as Goofy Children's Cartoons

If anyone ever decides to make a Saturday morning cartoon of Night of the Living Dead or Alien, Justin White will be there. His new illustration series, Rated G is a cheeky look at movies and TV shows that are child-inappropriate, but that he reinterprets in a children's animation style.

The Rated G gallery show opened yesterday at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, where you can also purchase the individual fake animation cels. But even if you can't get to LA, you can still see all 30 pieces from the show at /Film—from Fight Club to Fargo—and dream of a Steamboat Willie-infused remake of Psycho.

Don't forget the Operation: ALIENS cartoon that was almost produced by Fox Kids in the early '90s. It was abandoned when the network understandably got cold feet over making a Saturday morning cartoon about hideous phallic nightmare monsters that gestate inside their living prey. It's not entirely clear if the pilot episode was ever produced beyond these concept illustrations, but there was a really weird line of whacked-out Kenner toys based on the concept, apparently based on a six-year-old boy's impression of his older brother's description of the movie overheard during breakfast (the Bishop figure, IIRC, had a giant mecha-arm).
