The world of cartoon is a world of fantasy in itself. Be it those which have shot to fame in the recent times or those which are being aired since times immemorial, they truly have clinched the hearts of kids and old alike.
These animated characters have never failed to entertain and delight us with their chuckle, wit, humour and scintillating expressions.
Hence we bring to you a list of 10 most popular cartoon characters that have been etched in our hearts since a long time now. We hope the article take you back the memory lane.
Here we go!
10. Bugs Bunny
Created in 1938 by Tex Avery, this rabbit has been the coolest cartoon character.
That minor taxonomic dissimilarity was for no reason addressed during his many antics, but he held an enviable impudence through them all, whether being hunted with Elmer Fudd’s shotgun, Yosemite Sam’s pistols or Marvin Martian’s ACME Disintegration Pistol.
His only drawback related to a poor sense of direction.
9. Tom & Jerry
William Hanna and Joseph Barbera’s Tom & Jerry proved once again that silent movies had the capacity to make an impact. It reiterated the belief that dialogues were not needed to enrapture the generations gone by and those to come.
8. The Simpsons
He’s the everyman at our laziest, hungriest, dumbest and drunkest. Yet credit to good heart hidden under all those doughnuts, he’s also the conqueror that repeatedly saves the day—or at least restores the lot to a status quo which has endured for two decades and more than 450 episodes.
Cartman from South Park was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. This self-centred, foul-mouthed, hippie-hating, cartoon brat is the direct opposite of biased correctness; an Archie Bunker for a new age band. Over the last decade, he’s been the perfect medium for broaching taboos that Americans are too terrified to join a polite conversation.
Snoopy is the invention of the show Peanuts and dates back to 1950. Created by Charles M. Schulz and voice over done by Bill Meléndez, it was one of those characters which were carried from the print media to the television screens. His picture perfect enthusiasm was an attribute to look out for.
5. Mickey Mouse
This character represents Disney from all corners. Mickey Mouse was first voiced by Walt Disney, himself, then later by Jim MacDonald and Wayne Allwine. Mickey Mouse isn’t just a cartoon character; he’s an idol.
4. Charlie Brown
Coming from A Charlie Brown Christmas of 1965, this comic strip was one of the biggest show stealers. The kid who by no means kicks the football, whose dog is more admired than he is and who has a crush on the red-headed young woman steals our hearts every year with a range of cartoon specials.
Before entering the TV arena, this comic character was earlier published as comic strips. Popeye the Sailor was the show which then went out to catch the attention of millions of kids. His catchphrases include, “Well, blow me down!” and “I eats my spinach!”
2. Wile E. Coyote
Director Chuck Jones created the stubborn coyote along with Michael Maltese. The Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote were introduced in 1948’s Fast and Furry-Ous.
1. Fred Flintstone
The Flintstones premiered in 1960. Fred was the first well-built lively husband who had a beautiful wife, not enough brains for his schemes and an awful temper. Yet, he loved his family unit.
