  1. Aye, what a great collection! Did ye not git permission to portray The Brothers Rice (as they are officially called) or was it simply a fact of not finding them because their name is spelled with a “K” instead of a “C”: Rice Krispies, of course! Now, why didn’t Alfred E Neuman make the cut? He doesn’t do any *less* than Hello Kitty or a number of others who did make the grade! Also, any list of cartoon characters is remiss without Marvin the Martian. And what about the Keep On Truckin’ guys? They don’t have names, but everybody’s seen them, to be sure! From the same artist we have Mr Natural and Fkakey Foont, Fritz the Cat, and Devil Girl. (You’ll have to read the story about the creation of the latter yourselves,. as I don’t know y’all and it is racy.)

  2. Oh btw, it is scooby tht is the worlds most famous great dane and not shaggy ! and you forgot snoopy ! and the woodpecker!

  4. i love cartoon characters, specially Dora, Mickeymouse and Babyjackoqua

  5. Your Comments
    I agree w/ those of you who say Woody Woodpecker should be there. He’s one of my favorite cartoon characters, though I don’t care much for the original Woody. That Woody’s pretty annoying! By the way why isn’t Woody Woodpecker as popular as Bugs Bunny! I understand people like Bugs so much because he’s so smart & Woody’s very smart too!

  6. Hey evryone!!!
    Very nice n fascinating collection…….
    I guess…chota bheem (the indian cartoon character can be a part of this too)..

  7. With Snoopy and Stewie (Family Guy) in the list…..it would have been perfect. Still….awesome collection! Brought back memories 🙂

  10. Your Comments It’s weird but this morning I found on google a list of smartest cartoon characters & Woody Woodpecker wasn’t on it! Why would that be? He’s definitely one of the smartest! Wile Coyote on the other hand was on the list & shouldn’t have been. He’s not very smart at all!

  11. i love those cartoon character who inspired people especially children to do the write things that’s why some of the cartoon character are still existing in man’s heart and mind as well. its really overwhelming to see those cartoon character again. how i wish i can reminisced all my childhood memories. thanks to the world of animation.

  12. i love tom and jerry i am proud to be famous with that cartoon other than
    spiderman n superman my brother say no monkey can touch
    TOM N JERRY

  13. I’m glad Snoopy’s not on the list, He wasn’t that great and funny I don’t think otherwise I found him annoying first and then I could not even stand him at all at last.

  14. Kids are really missing out all kids care about now are video games, T.V. shows with explosions and lasers, and electronics. Mine won’t even go outside and we have a huge tree for climbing a basketball hoop and a swimming pool what more could you need!

  15. ok so im drawing many different cartoon characters on a canvas and you know i had to throw micky mouse on it. im actually doing it for this girl who goes to my school . i wish i could show all you guys how its coming out. but i guess i just hope she likes it. so far i got micky, domo, kenny, pikachu,hello kitty, and gir. Next will be like tweety, yoshi, one of those characters from dispicable me, snoopy, oh and jack and sally (: <3

  17. How could you not include SpongeBob?!
    Other than that major omission, the list was great 🙂 Especially love Calvin and Hobbes and the pic you have is adorable 😀

  18. You forgot Stewie, SpongeBob, Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, Peter, Patrick, Phineas, Ferb, Perry, and thats all you forgot.

  19. I am only 14 and I recognized all but one of those characters. I am amazed at how many cartoon characters I knew, it all comes down to having a grandpa and a dad who were (and still are) addicted to cartoons. And my dad being an artist, has a book of cartoon characters that you can be thought how to draw. I love cartoons and will continue loving them.
