Mad Men Kidz, Illustrations Reimagining Show’s Characters as Kids

Lil Don

Mad Men Kidz, a series of illustrations by Boston-based artist Jon Defreest for Vulture, reimagines characters from the hit AMC television show Mad Men as children. You can view all 7 illustrations online via Jon’s Tumblr.

Remember the days when popular prime-time TV shows would get Saturday-morning cartoon spinoffs, like The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang and Partridge Family 2200 A.D.? Those were truly the cultural salad days. So why not bring back that trend? There seems only one logical show to start with: Mad Men. Sure, the Sterling Draper Cooper Pryce employees and their significant others may be downers as adults, but give ’em the Muppet Babies treatment and they’re adorable!
