The weeks after Halloween are not kind to jack-o'-lanterns. They rot and decay alarmingly quickly, and you're left with moldy pumpkin yuck on your front porch if you don't dispose of them promptly.
This year, my friend Landen had perhaps the most impressive pumpkin decay I've ever seen. He immortalized Carl from Up in a fine jack-o'-lantern. Here's Carl before Halloween:
The "after" photo, however, is horrifying:
OH MY GOD, CARL FROM UP IS A ZOMBIE! EVERYONE RUN! RUN! WE MUST SAVE THE CHILDREN! NO ONE WILL BE SPARED!
This actually made me wonder what other beloved animated characters would like like all zombified. And because the Internet is a vast and terrifying place, I found an answer to my question in this proposed Threadless t-shirt. And in this collection of Disney characters.

And this sad destruction of my childhood love of Bert and Ernie.

Thanks to Landen for allowing me to share his pumpkin art/pumpkin monster!
