Purple. Humans don’t change colors. Watch more cartoons.

It’s not funny.

Purple would require the addition of red…...unlikely, if they’re suffocating, no?

My guess is yellow.
Think about it: if you’re bruised, it first turns all dark blue/purple, but as it fades it becomes an icky yellow colour….

darker blue?

About the same color I turned when I read the way you misspelled lacking and oxygen. I blanched.

They stay blue. They are a cartoon. Their artist painted them a color which they will stay. They don’t need oxygen!

@Lovelocke. Humans most certainly do turn colors. [Warning: Look at these images at your own discretion]. For example, lack of oxygen will turn your extremities blue, gangrene will turn things black, jaundice turns the skin yellow, Addison’s disease turns the skin brown, and so on.

@Shilolo: Show me someone who turns this color, then we’ll talk. http://ist-socrates.berkeley.edu/~schovill/pictures/smurf_eyeshut.jpg

That is, BLUE not ever-cream-ish-pale-moonlight-phantom-blue.

I’ve seen it with my own eyes (many times, in fact). People who stop breathing and become severely hypoxic turn a dark blue. I don’t have a picture of it, but it is true. And brilliant yellow with jaundice, and bright red with sunburn, and orange/brown from Addison’s disease.

there was a guy on the news a while back who had blue skin, I don’t remember what caused it, but he was very much alive…

@Cheeb. I believe this is the link you were looking for.

Silver nitrate. It decomposes in sunlight, if you get it on your skin it turns black, and the guy you’re refrencing would drink it.

And sometimes when people overdo the carrot juice, can’t their skin turn orange?
