There’s no “character” limit on the newest batch of jigsaw puzzles introduced by The Op over the last few weeks! These instantly recognizable visuals from classic movies and nostalgic cartoons packs this month’s Fixated series with franchises that span various decades, literally putting together a collection of puzzles for everyone in the family. Which wide-eyed characters would you assemble among these illustrated favorites?
The mere sight of The Wax Phantom, Charlie the Funland Robot and The Mummy of Ankha are enough to inspire flashbacks to one of the most memorable cartoon intros of our youth, and they “would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!” Daphne, Fred, Velma, Shaggy, and the goodest boy of all gumshoes Scooby-Doo are on the case in this 1,000 piece puzzle—and you can thank their being all up in the bad guys’ business for its title—the exclamatory catchphrase used after every captured villain’s reveal. For ages 9 and up.
While the two girls adorning blue ruffles and bows from 1980 horror classic The Shining are as presentable as a twin-pack of nightmare fuel, this 1,000-piece puzzle of the Grady sisters invites you to see red with its duo-chromatic contrast and spatter-patterned glory. “Come Play with Us, Danny” cites both the daughters’ haunting call from the film and the finished 19×27” piece, which fans might choose to place strategically at the end of a hallway. For ages 17 and up.
No socks needed to free this house elf from your game shelf. Keep the little protector with a big heart by your side after putting together “Dobby”, and you’ll find the former servant in his humblest pose in front of hyper-realistic house-colored lighting… perfect for paying homage to the pointy-eared servant and Hogwarts friend to the end. For ages 9 and up.
If putting together this Naruto Shippuden puzzle doesn’t work up an appetite, start from the center! “Ramen Time” features the popular anime ninja enjoying his favorite dish from Ichiraku Ramen, the spot he visits to refuel in-between missions with Miso Chashu Pork—a very real-life dish made by an actual restaurant in Fukuoka, Japan. It’s no coincidence we mentioned “wide-eyed” at the top of this blog—when Naruto was told that Ichiraku stopped serving his soup, the shocked hero’s normally blue eyes turned into The Simpsons-like white circles. For ages 9 and up.
America’s favorite cartoon family are joined by Mayor Quimby, Sideshow Bob, Principal Skinner, and countless other Springfield residents in “Cast of Thousands”, the ultimate puzzle to challenge The Simpsons fans in your life to identity obvious, obscure, and even duplicate sightings among 1,000 (mostly yellow) pieces! Kodos, Dr. Nick, Screamapillar, Disco Stu, and even a bear Homer once befriended also comprise the otherworldly beings, mascots, and animals hidden in this 19×27” collage for long-running show’s loyalists. For ages 9 and up.
A softer side of Rick Sanchez can be found by puzzle solvers needing an “irregular” point of view in this 1,000-piece image from Season 4 of Rick and Morty, where the irreverent half of the hilarious Cartoon Network duo realizes that getting business done isn’t always a cinch. A swirly portal provides the frame for a look from behind contemplative Rick, with his personal roll and calming galactic view… timely necessities for an environment in which relief and paper products are sparse. For ages 17 and up.
