Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? If you have, the comparisons can either be flattery at its finest or blanket the room in awkward silence, leaving you to study your selfies alongside the paparazzi pics of your so-called lookalike. But what about being compared to a cartoon character? We’ve put together a list of real-life cartoon doppelgangers that will leave you scratching your head at how such similarities could even be possible. They certainly threw us for a loop.

1. Linda Hunt and Edna Mode from 'The Incredibles'

Linda Hunt is an American stage, film, and TV character actress best known for her resonant voice, small stature and magnetic performances in a wide variety of roles. If we’re ever getting a live-action remake of The Incredibles, we’re definitely expecting Hunt to play the oh-so-fashionable Edna Mode.

2. Carl Fredricksen from 'Up'

3. Neil Patrick Harris and Riddler from 'Batman Comics'
