Child of TV Alphabets

I've been trying to move away from alphabets for a while now but I just keep coming up with more ideas. I knew that if I was going to step away, I needed to go out with a bang.

With that in mind, I'd like to present the "Child of TV" series, an alphabetic tribute to your favorite animated/puppet TV characters from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.

Since focus here was on television, I tried to stick to characters who originated in a TV series or shorts. This meant limiting characters who originated in a movie (so no Penguins of Madagascar or Yoda). Particularly for the most recent decades, I also limited characters aimed specifically at preschoolers (sorry Barney and Dora) or adults (so no Adult Swim, Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill or Simpsons).

Also, some criteria: I limited each show to one character. I considered a character to be part of a specific decade if (a) the show I'm representing debuted within one year prior to the start of the decade and (b) if the majority of the series ran in that decade. So there may be a character who debuted in 1999, for example, but since his show was most popular in the 2000s, this is where he falls.

Have fun guessing who is who. Posters, shirts, phone cases, pillows, leggings, tote bags and more available at Society6 and Redbubble.

Evil-phabet

After having so much fun with my Horror Icon Alphabet, I wanted to offer another typographic tribute to the villains and bad guys we all love to hate. Presenting the Evil-phabet:


Have fun figuring out who is who. They are all based on animated villains and I restricted myself to one image per film.

That's Alphabet Folks

What's Up, Doc?

I spent so much time with this group when I was younger that this was surprisingly easy to populate. Most difficult choice was who to use for T (sorry Taz).


Have fun figuring out who is who. I'll give you one: X is Ex (who debuted with 1935's I Haven't Got a Hat).

Princess Alphabet - Updated

Frozen hadn't overtaken the princess landscape when I prepared my first Princess Alphabet, but I felt that this warranted a rare update to one of my original designs:


Good luck guessing who is who. You'll need to consider movies, TV, comic books and video games. I'll give you one: Q is Qing Dynasty Princess.

The Number Who

I've actually been finished this one for a while, but I was waiting to see what the 12th Doctor's sonic screwdriver would look like. Based on on-site photos, looks like it will be the same as the 11th Doctor's. I'm hoping this changes, at which point I will revisit this:

ABC3PO

I've long wanted to create a Star Wars-inspired alphabet. With all the hoopla over the new movies, I didn't want to hold off any longer. To give myself an extra challenge, I focused only on characters from the films (no expanded universe). It actually wasn't too much of a challenge. :)

And now, straight from a galaxy far, far away:
