These edgy versions of 00s characters are the best memes you’ll see today

Shrek as a lit boy is a big mood


What did you think when you woke up this morning? If the answer is “I really fancied seeing Peppa Pig character transformation meme showing her as someone who you might see bumping ket at a Bristol uni house party” then you my good friend are in for a treat.

Just wow

We’re still not quite over the unparalleled genius of the Mr Sandman Cat, but Tik Tok hasn’t stopped to let the trend fester, and has moved on to something so outright bizarre you really couldn’t make it up.

This week, the hive mind of wildly creative adolescents are using Microsoft paint to recreate iconic 00s animated characters as edgier versions of themselves. We’re talking North Face, bum bags, and Fila Disruptors. No one is safe from the alteration and Twitter is just starting to get in on the joke. These are the best ones:

Patrick Star is infinitely cooler than you

This version of Barry like techno, not jazz

I mean Tracy Beaker is still pretty hardcore imo

Mr Krabs is actually thicc af

They should have left the dungarees on Bob the Builder

Ket is love, ket is life

That’s not the only Shrek transformation

They did not have to do that to my boy Fireman Sam

The entire Pig family lives in Fallowfield

Big up the PNG background

Okay this isn’t as edgy but still slaps

Can you imagine them commissioning Shrek 20 off the back of this?

They should have made him do a shakka pose

Pickle Rick, for the weed fans

And Peter, for the meninists

Cinderella is a biiiig vibe now

I don’t know who this is but wow

The audio is this is brilliant

Idk who this is either

The entire Scooby gang – bonus points

Hello Kitty… more like hello LITTY amirite

Is this Phineas or Ferb?

How does this work so well???
