Welcome to the porg resistance

Star Wars fan and artist Mike Denison portrays the cuddly penguin-like creatures called porgs from "The Last Jedi" in other pop culture films and TV shows like "Adventure Time," "The Shining," "Alien," "Deadpool," "It," and more, and then posts his portraits on his Twitter account with the #PorgADay hashtag.

Snarky Marvel super-antihero Deadpool looks a lot less dangerous when in porg form. "Their cuteness makes for an interesting contrast when they're mashed up with other genres and put in different situations," Denison told CNET.

Even the friendly public-broadcasting painting teacher Bob Ross gets his own porg tribute with this adorable portrait. And yes, he's painting his buddy Chewbacca.

In director Alfred Hitchcock's fowl-themed 1963 horror film "The Birds," our feathered friends decide to team up and attack humans at every turn. In this portrait we see Chewbacca in Tippi Hedren's role running from angry porgs in flight.

This porg depicts Jack Torrance (as played by Jack Nicholson) in the horror classic "The Shining." We've already seen a porg scream his little head off in the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" trailer, so this portrait is perfect.

Remember that blink-and-you-might-miss-it moment from "The Shining" when two costumed partygoers are having a rather intimate moment in one of the haunted hotel rooms of the Overlook Hotel? Here it is re-enacted with Chewbacca and a porg.

When Danny comes across the creepy Grady twins in the hallways of the Overlook Hotel in "The Shining," they initially look harmless. But their bloody demise makes them very bad candidates for forever playmates. Here they are in porg form wearing their identical blue dresses.

"Stranger Things" is even more eerie when the demogorgon monster is replaced with a screaming porg.

In author and illustrator Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book (and also a 2009 film) "Where the Wild Things Are," a young boy called Max makes friends with the giant beasts that lurk in his imagination. Chewbacca and a crowned porg seem right at home in this literary classic.

In the 1979 film "Alien," Ripley must battle a new kind of alien that uses human victims as hosts. Somehow a porg version of an alien xenomorph doesn't seem quite as scary.

Author Stephen King made us even more afraid of clowns in his hit horror novel (and 2017 film) "It." This porg version of the clown Pennywise makes us want to hug it instead of run away.

In the 2014 Australian horror film "The Babadook," a young boy and his mom are tormented by an evil entity wearing all black and a top hat. This porg makes the Babadook's fashion sense look even more dapper than usual.

When you're an inquisitive monkey like "Curious George" it's easy to get into all kinds of trouble. This porg tries on the headwear owned by George's guardian, The Man with The Yellow Hat.

Vampires might sparkle now thanks to "Twilight," but classic horror fans remember actor Bela Lugosi as the quintessential vampire, Count Dracula. Here a porg tries his best to become the Prince of Darkness.

"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream" is a novel by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson who combines adventure with a lot of psychedelic drugs. But the book's unique illustrations from artist Ralph Steadman made it even more of a counterculture classic. Here Chewbacca and a porg look like they're trapped in the 1960s having a weird trip of their own.

Poppin' Fresh, best known as the Pillsbury Doughboy, is the poke-able advertising mascot of Pillsbury Company. Here a porg tries to step into Poppin' Fresh's doughy shoes.

Pop star legend Prince left this world in 2016, but we think he'd dig this "Purple Rain" porg tribute.

American rock band Guns N' Roses was famous not only for their controversial music but for their unusual album art. Here's a porg with "Last Jedi" character Rose Tico paying tribute to the record art from the band's 1987 debut album, "Appetite for Destruction."

See porgs in all their glory in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in theaters worldwide on Dec. 15.
