Are you ready to have your childhood ruined? A famous horror artist challenged himself with an experiment: How terrifying and gruesome could he make Disney characters featured in a Disney 100 coloring book?

The result is bone-chilling. It’s also terrible but terribly good.

The video posted on Youtube shows the artist, Jordan Persegati, go through a “paint with water coloring book,” page by page. Although the images below are stills from the video – some may be too frightening to sensitive readers. So beware. Beware. Be a very wary bear.

Scary Simba

He begins by turning Simba from The Lion King (1994) into a mutant monster.

Macabre Mickey Mouse

Next comes Mickey Mouse. The artist begins by sketching in the classic colors of Mickey’s red shorts and yellow shoes. Then he quickly transforms Walt’s iconic character into a toothy-grinning creature with a creepy and clown-like smile reminiscent of the Joker from Batman.

Possessed Pocahontas

The artist then moved on to Pocahontas, turning the Native American Disney character into a creature with spiky arms and bloody colors.

Poison Princess

As the video progresses, we come across Jasmine from Aladdin (1992). Again, he begins by giving the character her classic colors, focusing on her dress and jewelry. But a few seconds later, the artist turns her into a reptilian princess with razor-sharp teeth and a snake-like tongue.

Stitched Up Stitch

Next comes Stitch. How do you make the adorable alien scary? Turn them into a cute-creepy voodoo doll. The simple version of this creation actually looks like a character you may see in Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Monster Madness

Monsters, Inc. (2001) is the next page in the coloring book to be corrupted. This one features an image of Mike and Sulley with Boo standing innocently in front of them. He transforms the scene into Mike and Sulley as horrific zombies and Boo smiling creepily.

Alice’s Mad Mind

The next page takes us to Alice from Alice in Wonderland (1951). He draws and paints a spiraling illusion into her head. It is not as gruesome or gory as the other images, but it still manages a nice blend of Disney and horror.

Finding Fear

The Finding Nemo (2003) page sees Dory and Marlin transformed into flesh-hungry piranhas, with Marlin having clown-like makeup around his eyes. This image captures the artist’s work before he turns the scene chilling.Scary Dory and Marlin

Morbid Miguel

Next, we see Miguel from Coco (2017), who is painted as a violent rock musician.

Winnie the Terror

On the following page, he works on Winnie the Pooh – turning him into a creature made of hollowed-out honeycombs.

Monster Minnie

Then there comes…Minnie Mouse. What the artist does is true blasphemy. He turns her into a bug-eyed mouse with an oversized jaw and rotting teeth.

Evil Olaf

Finally, we come to Olaf. The grinning snowman is traced and illustrated into…another grinning snowman. But something about him isn’t quite right…

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
