Mashups are a way of life today. Hell, I’ve probably got ten t-shirts with some sort of weird mixing of characters or movies. Having now babbled for a few second, I will get to the point. Going by the moniker El Cid, Rodrigo Huerta gives us one of the funniest mashups ever: SpongeMen SquareWatch. Transforming the characters of SpongeBob SquarePants into the heroes and villains of the Watchmen, Huerta creates comic gold on YouTube. Amazingly enough, he’s made several of these and this is the first I’ve heard of him.
Check out the video here below and make sure you aren’t drinking anything you don’t want to spit up while laughing!
The short features Patrick as The Comedian, SpongeBob as Rorschach, and my namesake, Gary, as Dr. Manhattan. Several others appear in the cartoon, but it’s my opinion that Patrick takes the top spot. The deadpan delivery as The Comedian is hilarious and I would love to see this as a full-length remake. But no matter what you do, watch the whole thing. There is a bit at the end that made me laugh in spite of the content. It’s all about the person being parodied.
Huerta is a former DreamWorks Animator and an Animation Director for FOX. His YouTube Channel is loaded with his animated shorts that will have you laughing in no time. You should check out his website, as well. It’s called StingingFoam and shows off the plethora of skills he has at his disposal. You can also find him on Twitter and Facebook.
