. This little guy reaches my list of cartoon characters because of his adorable little chipmunk attitude that never stinks.He is the lead singer of the the group, Alvin and the Chipmunks. He is joined by two other chipmunks in this group.
. You always need a villain in the story, and Angelica doesnt mind fulfilling this role.She is one of the characters in RugRats, and later created cartoon called All Grown Up. She will always be the big sister and with this comes some responsibilities she might just not always want to accept and some other times she will abuse them.
. Arthur is one of those aardvark kids who can teach you quite a bit, since he has his own children books series. Ive added him to this list of cartoon characters since he is the only aardvark I know of that has some IQ to talk about.
. Atom Ant was added to the list of cartoon characters because of his special reputation as a superhero-ant.He operated out of an anthill in the countryside, where he had interesting things like a mainframe computer and exerciseequipment. He has the powers of flying, super-speed, incredible strength, and invulnerability.He has this adorable catch phrase Up and at em, Atom Ant!He was often contacted by the police, who sent him out on assignments.Thi
. This ancient guy is the bestest-best friend of Fred Flintstone.Barney and his wife, Betty, with their little boy, Bam-Bam has a lot of fun with the Flintstone family in the cartoon called The Flintstones.
. Another character which cant be left out of this list of cartoon characters. Yep, this naughty one that gets away with a lot of wrong-doings also made the list. He is part of The Simpsons cast.Bart has been described as a 10 year old, who does and says what he wants. He unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) gets into trouble with everything he does. Can you blame him? With a father like his, where Bart is majorly smarter that dad. He usually wears
. A handsome man with the man-made powers and the costume of a bat.A list of cartoon characters just wont be complete without Batman.
Beavis and Butt Head
. This wacky duo gets you laughing in your seat with no sweat at all. They are just silly.These two are socially useless, rock-loving teenage boys. They live in the town of Highland, Texas. They attend high school where their teachers are often at a loss as to how to deal with them although in many episodes the two skip school. They occasionally work part-time at Burger World and sometimes other side-jobs when people mistake their odd behavior as o
. This sexy girl will have you drooling at a distance.Betty Boop was a star in the 1930s, when films with sound overtook the silent films. Even though she were in black and white, she still had sex appeal, a cutesy voice and ditzy charm that made her a hit.Today, her image is iconic, and it appears on all kinds of merchandise which people buy without ever really seeing even one of her cartoons. She still makes a few debuts in some of todays cartoon
. Part of the Powerpuff Girls trio, Blossom is always the one that pulls her weight as the leader of the pack.She has the voice of reason and usually makes sure that everything on a mission goes right.This list of cartoon characters has to include her, but not only her, the complete trio is here.
. Theres a lot more to this little bear than meets the eye. He is most of the time more aware of the situation than Yogi.As part of the Yogi Bear Show, Boo-Boo keeps Yogi, or at least tries to, out of trouble.
. This mean, baddy is always on Popeyes case. He always wants the girl, but never gets her.Brutus has always been part of the Popeye shows to keep the tension going.
. Whats up doc? That everlasting phrase, you just wont forget. This is the unmistakable catch phrase of this crazy, yet very famous, Bugs Bunny.He is, perhaps, the most recognizable and famous cartoon character. Looney Tunes were first created as lead-ins to feature films. It was only later that the cartoons became a standard TV cartoon. Generations later, Bugs Bunny is still at the top of any A-list.
. The fighter of the team. She doesnt really have patients for anything at all, but her sisters sure do adore her.Her morals are sometimes a bit more in question than the other two. She has the weirdest ideas sometimes. For example, she realized that she can get money for her teeth, so she went and hit out all the teeth of the bad guys just to get whole bag of money under her pillow.Unfortunately, The Professor found out, so did the baddies, and sh
. Eric Theodore Cartman is a character on the American animated television series South Park. One of the four main characters along with Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, and Kenny McCormickVoiced by Trey Parker, Cartman is an overweight, spoiled, foul-mouthed, mean-spirited, selfish, and ill-tempered fourth-grader living with his mother in South Park, Colorado, where he commonly has extraordinary experiences not typical of conventional small-town life.
. She was brought back to life by Sacred Cats, now she is CatWoman. She has to be included in this list of cartoon characters as one woman with some gggrrreat cat skills.As any other superhero, she does her duty and saves her part of humans.
. This little man is simply the most passive one I know, but still he makes the list of cartoon characters.The kid who never kicks the football, whose dog is more popular than he is and who has a crush on the red-headed girl, still stays popular with everyone. Its Christmas, Charlie Brown is based on the famous comic strip Peanuts created by Charles M. Schulz.Sadsack and unlucky Charlie Brown leads the group, that includes his dog Snoopy, his siste
. Simply dis-spicable. He certainly is a bit daffy when it comes to what he usually says. Regardless his tantrums and schemes, he still makes for one of the greatest cartoon characters. This duck might be envious or jealous of Bugs Bunny, but he is still needed to make the Bugs Bunny cartoons work. Even though his actions are despicable!
. An angry little duck, with the temper of a time bomb. An when he gets angry... well, luckily no one knows what he is saying.As Mickey Mouses cynical sidekick - Donald Duck still stays a favorite cartoon character. He has the temper of a lion with a thorn stuck in his foot, he speaks an almost unrecognizable language of his own, but his eye-rolling attitude and exasperation with most of the world is what makes him Donald.
. This is no ordinary donkey. He has a tail that you can play pin-the-tail with. But, he doesnt mind - actually - he doesnt mind anything.
. This middle child of the Wild Thornberry parents, has been given a gift by a Shaman. This gift wasnt an ordinary gift, but the gift to talk to animals. She seems to be doing an excellent job with this gift of hers, where she saves the lives of countless animals. Theres only one catch to her gift - she cant tell anybody about it, otherwise she would lose this unique gift. In the movie The Wild Thornberrys, she is forced to tell her secret, whereup
. The poor, senseless, unknowing hunter of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. He just happens to be there! His role is probably necessary for the third party of satire.But he is still loved by millions today as one of the not-so-intelligent cartoon characters.
. Fat Albert primarily spoke to African-American youth in low-income families, a segment of the population previously ignored by Saturday morning programming.However, the show had an impact on children across the United States, regardless of race.The show always had an educational lesson emphasized by Cosbys live-action cameos, and the gang always gathered in their North Philadelphia junkyard to play a rock song on their cobbled-together instrument
Felix the Cat
. Not just another cat, but a black cat with attitude.Felix, a black and white cat, was created during the silent film era of the early 20th Century. His simple form and face made him easily recognizable. He was also the first cartoon character that gained so much popularity that he was awarded a feature film. Surely a cartoon for this list of cartoon characters.
George of the Jungle
. He makes the list of cartoon characters, although he came originally from a movie for kids. Okay, hes definitely not Tarzan, but he still does some good in the jungle.
Gerald McBoing Boing
. This little guy is a bit older than the rest, but he still makes the list of cartoon characters.Gerald McBoing-Boing is the story of a little boy who speaks through sound effects instead of spoken words. The story is about Gerald McCloy, who at the age of 2 years begins talking in the form of sound effects. His first word being the titular boing boing. His panicked father calls the doctor, who informs him that theres nothing he can do about it.As
. Jip, his name says it all. This chap is always very jolly and he can (and usually does) goof up anything and everything.He is also one of Mickey Mouses sidekicks. As a Walt Disney cartoon character, he sure helps for more silly laughter in his cartoons.
Heckle and Jeckle
. These characters are a pair of identical magpies who calmly outwitted their foes in the manner of Bugs Bunny, while maintaining a mischievous streak reminiscent of Woody Woodpecker.They might be a of the bit-older cartoons, but they arent forgotten in this list of cartoon characters. However, in a number of their cartoons, well maybe most of them, their foes win in the end. Their names were inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson who is the famous wri
. Right, he drinks too much and gives stupid a bad name. What else do you want to know? Oh yeah, hes part of The Simpsons cast.
Tom and Jerry
. Tom and Jerry, on the other hand, chase each other, torment each other and generally try to defeat the other, with the most horrible things, and then they dont even have a scratch on them after a bomb explosion! Though Tom has the upper hand more than, say, Sylvester, he still has yet to make a meal of Jerry.This is not a cartoon that I would let my small children watch. It gives the idea that one can hurt each other and nothing comes of it. So,
. This little lady is the leader of the musical band called Josie and the Pussycats.In between gigs they also solve a little mystery here and there.She is the leader of the Josie and the Pussycats band, but since she is the most famous of them all, I added just her to the list of cartoon characters, for now.
. Musical, intelligent, not-so-pretty, but still the sensible one of the Simpson bunch.The whole Simpsons family is in this list of cartoon characters, so you will find Homer, Marge, Bart and Maggie as well.
. She is ever so in love with Charlie Brown, but, alas, he has no meaning of falling into her trap.Lucy is part of the Peanuts cartoon series. She also started with Charlie Brown and Snoopy in the first series.
. The baby of The Simpsons family. All she can do is suck her dummy and crawl around, but dont be fooled, she is up to more than you can think of.Yep, from baby to bad-guy, this list of cartoon characters has (almost) them all.
Marjorie Marge Simpson
. The famous Simpsons mother of a whole disturbing family.She is a well-meaning and extremely patient mother to all three of her children.She still makes sure they seem normal, although, nothing in Springfield is normal.
. The beloved mouse with a character to cuddle to bits. He will always be someone in our minds.
. Brave, strong, super... what? Hes a mouse? Jip, some super mighty mouse that saves the day.
. Mickeys girlfriend and companion in most of his cartoon shows. Sweet, gentle and most cuddlesome.
. She sometimes wavers to choose Popeye when Brutus enters the scene, but every time (after a bit of spinach) Popeye prevails as the winner, and obviously Olive falls into his hands.All of them makes the list of cartoon characters, even Olive does.
. Fred and Wilma Flintstones only daughter, their pride and joy.Her best friend is Bam-Bam who is the son of Barney Rubble. Barney is, of course, the best friend of Fred Flintstone.Pebbles and Bam-Bam has come a long way together, I even saw them together as more-than-friends in a later Flintstones series.However, she still has been added to the list of cartoon characters.
. Piglet is one of my favorite cartoon characters. With his little stuttering and fear of, well, everything he deserves a little spot in everyones heart. He is one of Winnie the Poohs best friends.
. This yellow little friend also deserves a spot on the list of cartoon characters.Pikachu has gotten his spotlight from the Anim? cartoon, Pok?mon.
. Pink Panther is a character who inspires a tune in your head as soon as you see him. The Pink Panther is a series of animated shorts, designed to appear at the opening and closing credits of live-action films starring Inspector Clouseau. He was so popular that he became his own show.With a nose for clues, an eye for intrigue and a mind like a steel trap thats jammed shut, The Inspector sets out to solve Paris most puzzling crime mysteries.The Pin
. You will never understand what he says, but as Mickey Mouses dog he is still a catch.He has been in many Walt Disney cartoons as well as in Mickey Mouse Club House, and House of Mouse.It seems that this dog cant be left out of anything, not even the list of cartoon characters.
. Im Popeye the sailor man... toot-toot... This is a good example of the effects of spinach on a person. If only our kids would believe in this spinach myth. But this would be better than the pipe in his mouth, which makes me think why so many children smoke today.But, nonetheless, Popeye still makes an entrance into a childs heart. With his bulging forearms, squinty eyes and staccato chuckle he is still recognized by many generations.This sure is
. meep-meep. Jip, he doesnt talk much (actually never), which makes me wonder where his intelligence comes from to dodge the Coyote all the time.He doesnt even have anything up his sleeve to out-dodge Wile E. Coyote, but still he outwits him and his traps.
. He is the sidekick of Batman, but dont tell him that, he just might get cocky about it.He has learned from the great master (that is Batman) on how to be a hero of the town. Still, he seems to be a sidekick of Batman, and never goes out on his own.Actually, thats what Batman was hoping for, but Robin takes chance on his own whenever he sees an opportunity.Its his sure independency that gave him a spot in the list of cartoon characters.
. Wow, Ive never seen a more intelligent dog than Scooby-Doo, and he even talks too.Scooby-Doo, where are you?, then you know exactly what were talking about. Their humor can be seen on two levels. The first, as seen through the eyes of a child, theyre just silly cowards who somehow always save the day and remain best friends.But watch Scooby-Doo as an adult, and youll wonder if the van driving, spacey talk and continual snacking are lifestyle symp
. This is Scoobys best friend, they do everything together, even get scared together and then run away together. Mmmm... makes you wonder.Shaggy is part of the Scooby-Doo gang who solves some interesting mysteries, something scary which turns out to be a guy in a suit.He is added to the list of cartoon characters because he might just as well be as famous as Scooby-Doo.
. This is another brother from Alvin and the Chipmunks, but Simon is the intelligent one.He understands greater things than the other two.Together with Alvin and Theo they create the greatest music ever heard. Those voices are the thing that gave them the name. If you ever hear someone say You sound just like a chipmunk and you havent got a clue what they are talking about, well, they mean you sound like these guys. And no, I dont think they do it
. Now this is a dog close to my heart. Hes been around for ages. Got to love him and never leave him out of a list of cartoon characters.Snoopy is Charlie Browns faithful dog, but he always has a story of his own. One might think that he always lives on top of his doghouse. Its Christmas, Charlie Brown has been enjoyed for generations, and will be for years to come.
. A legend of his own, Spiderman is man with spider abilities. Intriguing every time, he has many foes to overcome with every episode.Spiderman falls into the class of Batman and Superman, they all made the list of cartoon characters.
. A squared-shaped sponge who lives under the sea. I had to include him in the list of cartoon characters with no fear. This cartoon premiered in 1999. Since then, the SpongeBob SquarePants characters has become an American icon. He is absorbent, yellow and porous, as the theme song indicates. This little guy is naive and excited all the time. He lives in a pineapple next to Squidward and Patrick.SpongeBob works as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab. He
. This guy needs no introduction. Neither could I ever dream of not including him in the list of cartoon characters. Hes been around before everyones time and probably will be after everyone has gone. I think he will always remain a superhero in my heart.
. Sounds like a funny one but he sure is a madman of kind. Just another one of Batmans nemeses. Ooh, creepie. I guess the purple outfit should say something about his mood.
Theodore Theo Chipmunk
. Bestest friend of Alvin and together they make the most beautiful music as the group called Alvin and the Chipmunks.Theo is the fat one so I assume his the one whos been eating all the cookies. Yet, as plump as he is, he still stays cute.
. Hes not really the brightest bulb in the string, but he sure can glow when he wants to. This tiger jumps on his tail like a spring and keeps the funnies going around.He is one of Winnie the Poohs best friends, and together they sure have fun.
. As part of the RugRats troop, Tommy are always the innocent one learning a lot of things with his buddies.He doesnt stand a chance against Angelica, but he always seems to come out on top after a grave incident involving her.He had to be added to the list of cartoon characters.
. The leader of a gang of alley cats, he, known as TC. Hell never admit that they live on the street, but still he gives Office Dibble the long story.Top Cat is cool, but his morals are a tad looser than his gangs, leading to occasional mutiny. Nevertheless, T.C. always remains the leader of the gang.Top Cat was released in 1960 by Hanna-Barbera animation studios.
Tweety and Sylvester
. Sylvester is always on the prowl to get Tweety, where this little bird simply replies I taught I thaw a putty-tatAnother duo of cartoon characters created by Chuck Jones, that Ive included in the list of cartoon characters.Tweety Bird and Sylvester keeps each other on their toes, with Sylvester losing out on a yummy bird meal every time. It seems he just cant get that yellow, juicy, little bird for lunch. Both their characters keeps the audience
Wile E Coyote
. He has set all the traps you can think of and even cant think of for the Road Runner, but alas, he has failed again.Wile E. Coyote is included in the list of cartoon characters, not because he has any special main character status (and I say that in the nicest way possible, because Roadrunner usually takes the shine), but because without him the Roadrunner would have any fun.
. She is the wife of Fred Flintstone, and most of the time she can talk some sense into him.She is part of the cast of The Flintstones and with her best friend and neighbor, Betty Rubble, they also have a lot of fun, just like the boys.I just had to include her into the list of cartoon characters.
Winnie the Pooh
. A cuddly bear thats included in the list of cartoon characters, has also been around since the dawn of the dinosaurs.Winnie-the-Pooh, originally a childrens book, was published in 1926 with the character of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, and Eeyore. The second collection of Winnie-the-Pooh stories, The House at Pooh Corner, was published two years later and introduced the character Tigger. Since then, the books have been published in over twenty langua
. One cartoon character that makes the list of cartoon characters is one thats got this very contagious laugh, thats why I dont even dare to write it down.Woody Woodpecker, unlike most of the cartoon characters, lives to cause trouble. He has the ability to irritate any and everyone in his cartoon series. But he has, as his famous trademark, his cackling, stuttering laugh, which makes him OK for millions to watch and enjoy.
. This bear is a resident of the Yellowstone National Park. But, he thinks he owns the place, stealing lunches and so on.He sure is included in the list of cartoon characters because of his status as a famous cartoon.Another Hanna-Barbera cartoon series creation was the team of Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Like other classic Hanna-Barbera characters, Yogi continually found himself in trouble with the game ranger and Boo Boo usually figured a way out. The
. What a man! Strong, clever, fast and tough such a beast, with the heart of a lion.He has made his debut since ever! Tarzan is based on a book series written by Edgar Rice Burrows.
. Aah yes, the samurai that doesnt die. He simply stands back for no-one. Past, present or future. He lives by the sword - his only true companion. I look forward to the day that he finally gets Aku.
. He didnt had a good beginning, but as he evolved as Iron Man, he learned a lot about people and helping them became his mission.His suit might be made out of iron, but his heart sure aint.
. Strong leader of the Autobots.His ethic level is very high, something to live by - and a good example for our children.
. Hes dumb, worships only himself, and no girl likes him. What a good example of how not to be.At least the girls teaches him a lesson or two.
. Cute, adorable and always the peacemaker between her two sisters. Strong enough to fight monsters, yet small enough to still go to pre-school.
. Our furry little alien, who has a heart of gold.He looks after Lilo like shes a sister to him. Out of all the experiments, he still is the favorite.
. My most favorite fat cat, lazy and full of mischief. This ginger cat has been around for a long time, and will be for another long time.Garfield is one of those characters that started out as a newspaper cartoon, and still stood the test of time.
. She is everyones best friend and has always, no matter what the case, have something nice to say to everyone. She is delightful, and smells of strawberry. What a great friend to have by your side.
Pepe Le Pew
. Who would have imagined that a randy skunk would be such a hit back in 1945? Mssr. Le Pews aggressive advances on poor Penelope Pussycat sprung from a place of confused confidence, but his lover-boy antics were always a treat to behold.
Sylvester J Pussycat and Tweety
. Mel Blanc kept the different speech impediments straight while voicing both cat and bird for Looney Tunes.
. Made in Mexico, Bender is a sociopath of steel (er, well, iron, titanium, lead, zinc, dolomite and nickel), who has kidnapped Jay Lenos head and sent his own son to robot hell. But he really just wants to be a folk-singer.
. Gawrsh Disneys good-natured, bumpkin widower doesnt have a lot going on upstairs, but a sunny disposition always sees him through.
. The writers on The Simpsons have always been equal-opportunity offenders, but theyve also done so with great charity. Flanders, the Dudley-Do-Right evangelical neighbor, became the shows fundamentalist with a heart of gold, and religion was treated with a depth and understanding lacking from most public discourse.
. Edlunds send-up of the superhero genre had a short run, but it was a good one.
Phil Ken Sebben
. So many great Hannah Barbera cartoon characters made cameos in Harvey Birdman, but its the new guy that stole the show. Stephen Colbert was Phil before he was skewering presidents and getting species and sports teams named after him.
. The young, would-be auteur Brendon was never a huge ratings success, but for those who saw him on Adult Swim, hes hard to forget. Created with plenty of improv, its a little bit Woody Allen and little bit mumblecore. Plus Paula Poundstone plays his mom.
Larry the Cucumber
. After all the cultural good that Christianity gave us over the last two Millennia, the second half of the 20th century wasnt exactly a high-water mark. But in the 1990s, Veggie Tales became the exceptional piece of genius pop culture in the typical Christian bookstore. And Larry the Cucumber was the biggest reason why. Dont believe me? Watch the video below.
. I didnt realize until finding the video below that Marvins first collection from Earth was the Abominable Snowman, who likes to hug and squeeze and call you George. But Marvins superiority complex always provided Bugs with the perfect foil.
Ace and Gary
. In 1954, Fredric Wertham published Seduction of the Innocent, a crusade against the evils of comic books. One of his claims was of a special relationship between Batman and Robin (though Batman wouldnt be the last cartoon character whose sexuality was questioned?see SpongeBob, above). Forty-two years later, a pair of superheroes would finally come out of the closet?sort of. Brilliantly voiced by Colbert and Carell, Ace and Gary save the day, leav
Krusty the Clown
. The pointy-haired, chain-smoking kids entertainer is The Simpson writers door into the world of show business, where they routinely and hilariously skewer self-aggrandizing celebrity excess.
Hong Kong Phooey and Spot
. The 1 super guy was a janitor dog named Penrod Pooch. He always saves the day with the help of his Hong Kong book of Kung Fu and his underappreciated cat, Spot.
. Sometimes the sidekick is more interesting than the hero, and thats the case with the slacker teenager on Scooby-Doo. For a guy with absolutely no courage, he sticks with mystery solving gang through the spookiest of places.
. Daria Morgendorffer weathered suburbia under an armor of sublime snark. The show was affecting and entertaining with absurd sidestories and clever social commentary made Daria so fun to watch. Julia Askense
. Other evil geniuses arent hampered by their youth, but one-year-old baby Stewie doesnt let that stop him.
Ren and Stimpy
. Ren Hoek and Stimpson J Stimpy Cat pushed the boundaries of ridiculous cartoon violence in ways that two decades later seem quaint.
. Hey Ferb, I know what were going to do today, Phineas says each show before launching into his latest ambitious plan to pass the summer days, whether its building a giant tree house that transforms into a giant robot or filming a movie or creating a time machine. And even though the stepbrothers grand plans escape the attention of their parents and drive Candace nuts, Phineas remains completely guileless. Hard to believe this is on the Disney Cha
. Hank might think his boy aint right, but hes just fine by us. We like his self-confidence that doesnt depend on innate talent or beauty. Hes comfortable in his own skin, and that often makes his daddy uncomfortable.
Pinky and The Brain
. Plenty of cartoon characters have had ambitions for world domination, but no one else just wanted to be a benevolent dictator like The Brain.
. Dr Doofenshmirtz may be one of the newest entries on this list, but the evil scientist from Phinneas and Ferb has quickly made a big impression with his attempts to wreak havoc upon the tri-state area. We love his back-story monologues about his childhood in Gimelschtump, Druselstien. We love his ridiculously named devices (the the Ugly-Inator, the Age-Acclerator-Inator) and that his nemesis is a platypus. The subtleties of the relationship are p
. Who else but Eric Cartman could inspire 10 parallels with Ambrose Bierces The Devils Dictionary This selfish, foul-mouthed, hippie-hating, cartoon brat is the antithesis of political correctness; an Archie Bunker for a new generation. Over the last decade, hes been the perfect vehicle for broaching taboos Americans are too terrified to engage in polite conversation.
Homer J Simpson
. The first two seasons of The Simpsons were focused on Bart, but as it became Homer-centric, the show became something truly special. Hes the everyman at our laziest, hungriest, dumbest and drunkest. Yet thanks to good heart buried under all those doughnuts, hes also the hero that repeatedly saves the day or at least restores everything to a status quo which has endured for two decades and more than 450 episodes.
. Doraemon is a cat-like robot from the 22nd century of the future. His favorite food is dorayaki, a sweet bean paste filled bun, and his birthday is 3-9-2112, he is also known by the name Ding-dang. He weighs 129.3 kg, is 129.3 cm tall, can leap 129.3 cm in the air and can run 129.3 km per hour. He is afraid of mice and hates rats; his ears were eaten off by rats. He has a fourth-dimensional pocket on his abdomen from which he can take out many am
. I admit I never heard of him until I did my research. Created by Hiayo Myazaki, he was a national craze in Japan and is one of the most popular anime characters ever. My Neighbor Totoro helped cement Myazakis legacy as the first animation director to consistently top Disney at the Japanese box office. Im not an anime fan but Ill give it its props.
