Isaiah K. Stephens, 90's Cartoons

This is really the only "Where Are They Now?" situation we care about. Remember growing up with the Rugrats, the kids that ruled Recess and the students traveling on The Magical School Bus? Well, artist Isiah Stephens has taken those characters and reimagined them as adults, so it's like catching up with your childhood friends! And since Nickelodeon is possibly, hopefully, maybe launching a channel dedicated solely to '90s cartoons called The Splat, we thought you guys might want to see what these kids would look like in 2015.

And it turns out—and this may seem weird—that puberty has done some of these folks some real favors.

Just check out the cast of The Magic School Bus above! Lookin' good, Tim! You really filled out. See how this is getting weird? Whatever, these drawings are amazing:
