Does drawing R-rated movie scenes in friendly cartoons make them okay for kids? Probably not, but Pixar storyboard artist Josh Cooley is rolling with the combination anyway. He’s taken memorable moments from films like the horse head in the bed in The Godfather and the shower stabbing scene from Psycho and illustrated them with drawings you’d see in a children’s book. The captions match the model and very calmly explain what’s happening in the scene.
It’s a fun combination and a clever idea for a children’s book parody. That’s good because it’s coming to a bookstore near you! Movies R Fun will be out on March 1st.
More of the amusing series and the book trailer after the break.
