Gorgeous Artwork Imagines 'Indiana Jones' as an Animated Series
Clerks, Back to the Future, Bill and Ted, Ghostbusters, and Men in Black are just a few live-action films that have been turned into animated series after the movies left theaters. Some of these were more successful than others, but here's a series that almost certainly would have been a big hit if it actually existed. Artist Patrick Schoenmaker (via GeekTyrant) created an awesome series of drawings for a show that never was, called Indiana Jones: The Animated Adventures. Because this artwork is so terrific, it only takes a little bit of imagination to picture Dr. Jones, Short Round, Marcus Brody, and Indy flying into action. Look!

This would have easily been one of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons growing up if it were real. Schoenmaker has a great style, and this looks totally believable, as if it were abandoned concept art for a real series. Some say that "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" is a better version of the saga than the live-action prequels, so perhaps he should talk to Paramount Pictures and George Lucas about turning this into a reality so fans can wash the bad taste out of their mouths left by Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Good stuff?
