The Simpsons is an established pop culture brand. Easily identifiable thanks to its particular yellow hue, and much-loved by its legions of fans, it's a highly respected bit of history these days.

The Hunger Games has not been around for so long, but judging from the very positive reviews it's been getting, the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel is set to hit pretty high heights too.

Fans of both The Simpsons and The Hunger Games, film site NextMovie.com have combined two of their favourite things to create these loving mash-ups of the two.

First up is the lead in The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen, played by Winter's Bone star Jennifer Lwarence in the film version.

Then there's the affected and somewhat clown-like Effie Trinket, brought to the screen by Elizabeth Banks.

And finally we've got Haymitch Abernathy, who you may or may not recognise as Woody Harrelson in a wig.
