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



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!

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). :)

are you the original author of this picture? I saw it everywhere, including facebook and motivational posters! I congratulate you, the picture is just perfect, man.
in fact, so you give me permission, I want to have it on a shirt.
Wickfield Featured By Owner May 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
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:

Pretty good except penny doesn't have her distinctive look
Wickfield Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well...she's wearing what Penny has on on the cover. Not sure how to make Dee Dee look anymore like Penny...

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?
Wickfield Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
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
