How to Draw 80s Cartoons


One of the best shows on American television is The Simpsons.

Even though it might be a little adult-oriented because of all the political innuendoes and undeniable sarcasm...

A lot of kids appreciate the show.

Adults love it because it is a very witty parody of the lives that people live. They can relate to the satirical take on current issues that are being faced by the country and at the same time, people are able to relate to the situations in family life that are being shown and the characters as well.

Adults feel as if the show is a reflection of their family.

Kids, on the other hand, love the show because the characters are simply adorable.

Never mind if the characters have odd voices or wild hairdos. They are still overwhelmingly hilarious and unbelievably easy to draw!

Almost all of them have very large googly eyes and sharp noses.

However, each character has a unique set of physical characteristics that you can focus on, like their hair.

80s Cartoons

For example, Marge has fabulous blue hair shaped like a very tall rectangle that is outlined by curly lines.

Lisa, Maggie, and Bart all have hair made up of triangles.

The only difference is that the girls’ triangle hairs are arranged in a semi-circle, while Bart’s triangle hairs seem to be resting upon a flat surface.

Homer is not that very challenging to draw, considering that he only has a few pieces of stringy hair that are neatly combed onto his pill-shaped head.

Coloring them is not a difficult feat too! You would not need to have more than the basics. After all, they seem to be made up of just a little bit more than the primary colors.

You can take your pick: Do you want to draw Homer, Marge, Lisa, Maggie, or Bart?
