10 Real Houses Inspired by Cartoons


When you were little, you likely had quite the imagination. After all, think back to all the times you ran around outside pretending to be someone – or something – you weren’t. This creativity was fuelled by a number of sources, from books to school to your friends. Then, of course, there was television. As a window into infinite fictional worlds, television often captivated us when we were kids and certain programs likely took up most of our after-school hours. Transformers, ThunderCats, Duck Tales, Rugrats– these are just a few of the many cartoons that we followed religiously. In fact, we bet you can still remember the opening theme song to a bunch of cartoons you watched all those years ago.

Fast forward to today and you’re all grown up and maybe even married with a kid or two. Yikes! – how did this all happen? Well, don’t get too down on yourself. Simply because you’re older doesn’t mean those great childhood memories are a distant thing. You see, it turns out that there are quite a few real-life homes with strong ties to our cartoon memories. In a case of life imitating art, we’ve found these following houses that have leapt off the TV screen into our very real and very three-dimensional world. Ahead you’ll see movie, TV and fairy tale inspired homes that will bring out the kid in all of us. Some were made available through contests, while others have been sold for millions. Regardless of cost, we think you’ll agree these 10 homes are pretty awesome. Now, you just have to work on convincing your significant other how cool it would be to live in one of these.
