Hilarious Disney Mash-Ups Feature the Popular Grumpy Cat

These Grumpy Cat/Disney Mashups don’t exactly follow the original animated scripts! In each illustration, artist Eric Proctor–aka TsaoShin–replaces classic princess figures with internet celebrity Grumpy Cat. The results are hilarious scenes in which the cranky feline doesn’t quite seem to belong. So far, the ongoing collection of illustrations feature Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Tangled.

TsaoShin’s incredible style is a blend of traditional painting with various digital platforms. He says, “I prefer working on fantasy stuff, creature creating, nerd culture, and fan art.” In the vividly detailed series, he demonstrates his impressive Photoshop skills and changes the meaning of each story. Rather than gazing adoringly into each other’s eyes, Jasmine and Aladdin stare off into the distance in awkward silence while mermaid Ariel isn’t bright eyed for a new future but, rather, simply unhappy about the water splashing up around her. The unexpected moments are an entertaining interpretation of the classic stories and we can’t wait to see what TsaoShin comes up with next!

It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
