Post-Christmas blues got you down? Here's just the thing to cheer you up: hilarious depictions of some of Disney's leading men -- without their beards.

These amazing drawings -- featuring characters as varied as King Triton from "The Little Mermaid" to Zeus from "Hercules" -- come courtesy of Kentucky-based comic book artist and illustrator Annie Erskine. Her hilarious re-imaginings went viral over the holidays and call to mind the lovably ludicrous drawings of Disney princesses with beards.
