I’m sure like most discerning individuals you’re anxiously awaiting the season three premiere of HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones. That’s why this animated parody of the TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire books will tide you over until this Sunday, March 31 when it returns to HBO. The video, from cartoonist Chris Allison of the webcomic Toonhole, is unique among Internet cartoons since it’s 100 percent hand-drawn in a cartoony retro style. Although stylistic comparisons to Ren & Stimpy are inevitable, I think it’s more in line with the classic cartoonists that influenced that 90s animated series, such as Looney Tunes’ Bob Clampett and Tex Avery and Mad Magazine’s Sergio Aragones and Don Martin. Check it out!
