We've never seen animated characters quite like this! Recently, beloved cartoon faces, from Snoopy to the cast of Rio 2, shaved their locks to show their support for kids battling cancer. Bald Cartoons [1], a campaign from Brazilian hospital and cancer charity GRAACC, gave the characters a makeover in hopes of comforting kids with cancer and sending a message that "a child with cancer deserves to be seen just like any other child." The campaign, which featured a few characters in its November launch, recently expanded to 40 in honor of Cancer Awareness Week. Watch the above video to see how the hospital's youngest patients reacted to the characters' new 'dos.
