Bedtime Paradox is an exploitable cartoon series based on a webcomic by K.C. Green in which a child tucked in bed asks his father to help him fall asleep by telling a "bedtime paradox," rather than a bedtime story. Since its original release as an issue of Green's Gunshow series in 2011, the webcomic has inspired many parodies and derivatives featuring alternative statements.


The original comic (below, left) was published by K.C. Green on his _ Gunshow[1] website on June 15th, 2011. More than two years later, on September 10th, 2013, Tumblr user claxdio-fx[4] posted the earliest known edit of "Bedtime Paradox" featuring another well-known paradox involving Pinocchio ("what would happen if Pinocchio said 'my nose will grow'") in substitute of the original conversation. Within two years, the post garnered over 1,000 notes.

On May 12th, 2014, FunnyJunk[5] user fridayiminlove posted a compilation of five derivatives, drawing over 25,000 views and 533 points in about two years, as well as two blank templates[6] for easier captioning. On August 18th, Imgur[7] user Loppervintsy re-uploaded the FunnyJunk compilation to the image-sharing community, where it received more than 11,000 points and 600,000 views over the next two years.
