This is a scene from the beginning of Shakespeare's Hamlet.
It reminded me of the sarcastic banter between Scar and Simba in the Lion King, so I made this piece.
For anyone who might not get the humor, Hamlet's (Simba) father just died, and Claudius (Scar) just married his mother. When Claudius tells him to get over his father's death, Hamlet retorts with a pun. It could mean that he is already over it, or it could mean that he is too much his father's SON (with an "o") to stop mourning so soon. Stranger still, it could mean that he is disgusted with the fact that he is now the father of both the old dead King Hamlet AND his own uncle, thus being too much a SON.

(ps it's sort of a dumb piece of trivia by now, but the Lion King is loosely based off of Hamlet, so I may be making more pieces like this soon)

AnimalWhispererSuch a hilarious coincidence that Shakespeare's Hamlet and the Lion King are so similar... Fantastic job on the sketch, and I think that those lines fit the idea nicely. ;)

I learned that Lion King was based off of Hamlet and I cracked up. It's a good movie, I bet you guessed ion King 2 was based off of Romio and Juliete

Cool Pic!

andycb2000and with less death
and craziness
and it has a happy ending
but they are (despite their many many many huge differences) surprisingly similar
