Kicking off “Multimedia Thursday” with an image that just makes me giggle every time I see it.
For those of you who don’t know what’s going on here, this is a number of the alien races (primarily villains, though in several cases, the ally/enemy line is blurred) from Doctor Who drawn as the characters from A Charlie Brown Christmas. (If you don’t know what one or both of those are, then I envy you a little since you still have the childlike wonder upon discovery of these two masterpieces ahead of you.)
I don’t know why the artist chose A Charlie Brown Christmas to put them into — none of those pictured have been featured in any DW Christmas episode. I also don’t know if the artist had any reasons for the specific replacements made, if there were any metaphorical comparisons meant to be drawn between the Dalek and Schroeder, for instance. I don’t even know who the artist is — I found the image randomly one day while puttering about the Internet.
But it makes me smile, so whoever you are, mysterious artist, I thank you.
