As if getting older didn't ruin your childhood enough, artist Miguel Vasquez is ready to shatter the last of your precious memories with his terrifying real-life 3D renderings of classic animated characters.

Most of us who grew up during the 90s will probably remember Nickelodeon's animated series Hey Arnold!, but after this you are going to wish you didn't.

Since 2015 artist Miguel Vasquez has been ruining childhood memories and traumatizing his Instagram followers with his creepy, real-life 3D renderings of animated characters.

Recently Vasquez took on the spiky hair and football-shaped visage of Arnold Shortman from Hey Arnold!.

And in just one image the once lovable, misshapen character was turned into a deformed abomination of grotesque proportions.

What is seen cannot be unseen.

Not satisfied with forever cursing the image of Arnold, Vasquez also included Arnold's best friend Gerald in his demonic campaign to ruin your childhood.

It's hard to look away from Vasquez's disturbingly hypnotic work, but you may require trauma counseling afterwards.

As incredible as the renderings are though it seems anyone with good sense just wants them to go back into the box.

But the nightmare doesn't stop there. Spongebob, Patrick, and Homer Simpson are just a few of the other characters in Vasquez's army of the damned.

More than anyone Vasquez knows just how unsettling his work is. But for him, that's part of the fun.

"I figured that Arnold's football shaped head would transition well from 2D to 3D," Miguel said in an interview with Buzzfeed about his recent work. "And provide a great laugh or shriek to those who loved the show back in the day!"

For more of Miguel's terrifying art you can follow him on Instagram or Twitter.

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.

Dad jokes can feel like the unloved step-sibling of the comical world. "Why would we laugh at something so obvious and stupid?"

Becuase it's hilarious, that's why. Just check out the following entries below and see for yourself.

Reddit user, u/GrotiusandPufendorf, wanted to know what the funniest jokes on the planet are when they asked:

What is your favorite dad joke?

A Murder Of Cows?


Dad: Look at that flock of cows over there.

Kids: A HERD of cows.

Dad: Of course I heard of cows, there is a flock of them right over there.

Note: pulled that joke successfully a few times, and my kids even did it to their summer camp instructor.


We Should Probably Leaf

At the park with my girls: "Dad, can we go play?"

Me: "sure, just stay away from those trees over there"

Girls: " umm...ok, why?"

Me: " I don't know...they look a little shady to me."

Good for producing eye rolls


What Better Way To Carry It Home


"Would you like the milk in the bag?"

Dad: "No thanks, you can keep it in the carton."


Scrambled Or Over-Easy?

Dad at breakfast: I'll have bacon and eggs, please

Waiter: How do you like your eggs?

Dad: I don't know, I haven't gotten them yet!


Feeling The Humor

Dad: "Nice shirt, is that felt?"

Not Dad: "No."

Dad: Reaches over and touches sleeve "It is now!"


That Joke Killed!


Why do graveyards have gates?

Because people are dying to get in.

My Dad always told it passing a graveyard.


Lean Back. Lean Back.

"I love my furniture. My recliner and I go way back."


Stating The Obvious, But Still Hilarious

I had a terrible day yesterday. As I was walking home, a man in a wheelchair stole my camouflage jacket!

As he was wheeling away, I shouted after him, "you can hide but you can't run!"


Give It A Second...


A magician was walking down the street.

Then, he turned into a grocery store.


Car Humor. That's All.

Dad putting car in reverse

Dad: Ahh, this takes me back


That's Always The Point

Not a joke in the traditional sense but, when I'm at a restaurant and the waitress says "Do you wanna box for that?" I always reply with "No, but I'll wrestle you for it."

No one ever gets it but it makes me laugh. And that's the point, right?


And the King of Them All...?


I tell dad jokes.

Sometimes he laughs.

But that doesn't mean her generosity is history.
