The Big Bang Experiment (original) by Wickfield The Big Bang Experiment (original) by Wickfield
EDIT: So I'm seeing this circulating around Tumblr w/o my watermark. Guys the watermark is there for a reason so I'm glad you like it but don't remove it or I'll have to start putting the big DA ones up.

AND NO IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE INCEST. I just put Dexter as Leonard because he's the main character (and shortest), and Dee Dee is Penny because she's the sole blond girl. It's not supposed to be an exact copy, but everyone on Tumblr is freaking out.



Dexter: "Dee Dee, this is not the Big Bang theory I thought you were talking about!"
Dee Dee: "Oh well - a little dress-up's always fun!"
Mandark: "Yeah right, especially when your own brother gets to date you before I do...."
Dexter: 0_0


----

BAZINGA!

Gosh, this thing took me forever (ZOMG I thought pentool sped things up :P), but it was worth it. Seriously, the perfect crossover, right? I think TBB is what Dexter's Lab could have grown up to be. :P Characters left to right are Douglas E. Mordecai III as Howard (because we all know Doug is a covert pervert :P), that one dark-skinned friend Dexter had in two episodes as Raj, Mandark as Sheldon, Dexter as Leonard (he's the shortest, of course), and Dee Dee as Penny.


I based it off this picture [link]) (with a few changes to better represent the characters - but of course I had to keep the CN checkerboard pattern for Doug's shoes!

wow, hadn't seen this before even tho it's awhile ago now -- This shoulda been in the recent art gallery exhibition - The Physics of Friendship: Tribute to the Big Bang Theory (www.gallerynucleus.com/gallery…
You'd probably like some of the stuff there too!

 Wow, this picture is awesome. I think you captured just the right characters for the right roles. Great work, I wish maybe you could make another one with the more recent female cast (Amy and Bernadette) but if not, this will still be one of my favorite.

Wickfield Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I thought about doing that, actually!  The only thing is I'd have to find some really random/obscure characters from DL to be Bernadette and Amy.  I thought about Soyen Chen for Amy though... :D

Lisa is unfortunately too tall!  XD  I thought about this girl from the omelette du fromage ep who loved Dexter though, lol: 9.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ku1n…
There aren't too many blondes other than Dee Dee surprisingly.

nad2005 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013
 Yeah, it could work, and you are right, except for just two or so, the female cast of Dexter's Laboratory is very small. I guess that could work, I can't wait.

 There is one other person that had more screen time than her: Becky, the blonde girl that bullies Dexter.

 I was thinking of a recast could work, just by switching Lisa with Dee Dee as Penny, and Dee Dee as Bernadette could work since Penny is the tallest of the three, but then it wouldn't really feel like Dee Dee. 

 Good luck, I can't wait to see how this turns out!

I'm really happy that I tracked this down so I can compliment the artist personally. I hate it when sites don't give credit to the owner. Anyway, though my husband and I just started watching BBT a few weeks ago, I do remember seeing this fanart since I was a Dexter fan when I was younger. After watching the "The Panty Piņata Polarization" episode when Leonard warns Penny, "Sheldon is one lab accident away from being a super villain", I had to find the original.

Your comparison between the two shows is refreshing. Though I don't remember Douglas or the dark-skinned friend, they way you portrayed them as Howard and Rajesh is funny. Mandark is the perfect Sheldon, especially now that I understand that Leonard is the main character even though I originally thought Jim Parsons played the lead. And it's fitting that Dexter and Leonard are short! Dee Dee is the perfect Penny. I don't see it any other way.

I thank this site for leading me here: [link]

Aw, thanks for the comment! I know it's not a *perfect* comparison but it amused me when I was making the original image. And geez, recently they were even playing D&D with the girls and it reminded me of that episode where Dee Dee hijacked one of Dexter and his friends' games and became dungeonmaster (that's actually the episode the dark-skinned kid came from). :)

Yep, I'm the original artist - it's one of my post popular pics even though it was only maybe the second Dexter pic I ever drew! I've seen it all over the place too - it even has turned up on my sister's Facebook friends' pages and they have no idea lil ol' me drew it. :)

I guess you can put it on a shirt for yourself if you want, just don't, like, start selling them or anything. :XD:

I can't believe no ones pointed out that Dexter is wearing a "Major Glory" T-shirt! Very nice touch of detail.

Actually, "The Justice Friends" was a pretty good sitcom too.

Now I want someone to do a video-dub of Sheldon laughing like Mandark.

Of course now you'll have to figure out how to include Bernadette and Amy. But Dee-Dee's two Friends are Asian and black. How would you work that out?

Haha, thanks for noticing. I had actually wondered who to use if I drew Bernadette and Amy...probably a few more background characters like I did with Howard and Raj. For Amy I thought I could use Soyen Chen from one episode, who was this brunette (probably Asian though you couldn't really tell it) scientist girl who was smarter than Dexter and Mandark. For Bernadette maybe I could use the Omelette du Fromage girl? XD IDK

It's mine - you can tell it is the original because it is dated before anyone else's. And even if it was someone else's it still isn't yours and you need to take it down.

If Sheldon and Penny end up together at the end of the series, I'm just going to chuckle to myself 'Ha, I knew Mandark would win her over eventually!'

Friend: Mandark?
Me: Um, I mean Sheldon. Sheldon.
