Top Ten Best Cartoon Characters

Here is a list of the most famous cartoon characters ever.

The Top TenXW

1Homer Simpson

If there were ever a character who could do so much wrong and yet so much right at the same time, Homer is it. While he may in fact be the worst father/husband ever drawn (although Peter Griffin would like to argue), he still is a father/husband because deep down he loves his children and his wife, and we adore him for. And what more can be said about that catch-phrase? Were I feeling funny during a moment of pain, all that would be uttered would be "D'oh!" - montreal45

Homer quote : I like my beer cold my television loud and my homosexuals flaming! - fortnight

Homer Chokes Bart and it is funny! and homer is like Patrick the star no Brain!

Erase him now!

2Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob has been with me forever, as I've gotten older, spongebob hasn't, I never miss an episode of this sweet little sea creature's story, his love of everyone and his laugh will always make him the best and most memorable cartoon character ever!

SpongeBob has hurt animals and tortured Squidward and said that crying solves problems, when it doesn't. - nelsonerica

Almost voted eric cartman, but spongebob is a legend

I like spongebob because my classmate love all this and I have collection spongebob''

1 of the beat cartoon

3Bugs Bunny

Bugs should be number 1 for that "what's up, doc? " only
Why did he have to be 5th.
Doesn't make any sense!

The original drag queen -- animated or otherwise!

Mr. Witty.
The Intelligent Mastermind.
Mr. Perfectionist.
Looney toones has preserved because of bugs bunny. - nik

He is a good bunny

4Eric Cartman

While his relentless anti-semitism/immigration politics and superiority complex have been the subject of much controversey, they have also made Eric Cartman one of the most memorable cartoon characters ever, and certainly the most unforgettable one constructed entirely out of cardboard. - montreal45

Kitty, these are MY spicy hot Louisiana chicken tenders. KITTY! - InsertNameHere

Cartman chopped up his own father, ground him up into chilly, and then fed him to his half brother. Need I say more.

Awesome character of all time best

5Scooby Doo

Love Scooby Doo. He is my favourite and the best cartoon character in the entire world. He is the only cartoon character that can make me laugh and go aah. He is so cute. I especially love the old classics such as Scooby Doo where are you, the New Scooby Doo movies, the Scooby Doo Show, Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo and A Pup named Scooby Doo. Scooby Doo is my number 1 for ever. He is classic and rocks!

Scooby is the best cartoon character ever! He Rocks! - thedude

Scooby Doo has got to be one of the best cartoon characters EVER! The Great Dane makes all the other cartoon characters say, "Ruh-Row! " when compared! With classic cuteness, a funny attitude, adorable catchphrase and a scaredy-cat sidekick, the show will make you howl with delight! Now the only left is to give me a Scooby Snack, and then I'll be ready to ask, "Scooby Doo, where are you? " On my T.V. screen, that's where!

Honestly I find him a sort of bland cartoon character who only solves mysteries and eats stuff - yuma9009

6Mickey Mouse

While he may not be the edgiest character ever, Mickey Mouse is undoubtedly the best. Unlike any other character on this list, Mickey's warm personality and famous face, complete with over-sized ears, gives off the impression of not just a character, but also an old friend who was with me throughout my childhood and will be remain my friend forever. - montreal45

They don't have cartman land, they don't have Tom and Jerry land, etc... Disneyland is one of the most recognized, if not the most recognized resort in the world! And Mickey Mouse is the one that everyone comes to see. His shadow is more recognizable than any other cartoon character in the world. I love Disney and have ever since I was a youngster.

Dude I'm really sad because Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse as a Logo. But now there's shows like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Walt had a good idea but now people have joined Disney company and have made Mickey Mouse into some little kids crap

Mickey has seniority over all listed above. He also appeals to all ages unlike Eric Cartman.

7Tom (Tom and Jerry)

Jerry's enemy, Tom made us laugh and it still can because these cartoon's are timeless - MatrixGuy

This isn't even in the top tens? This cartoon show is the most brilliant thing that's ever happened to me - that's why I live - Cowy_Gorilla

His name is Thomas The Cat lol rofl - IceCream

He's way better than Jerry

8Patrick Star

hahaha patrick is so funny, I love him hahaha, like the episodes survival of the idiots and chocolate with nuts

Patrick is the most funniest cartoon character I know that doesn't curse Shanghaied is the funniest episode ever

Twinkle Twinkle Patrick Star oh my I love Patrick Star he's awesome I hope nick never cancels and/or sells SpongeBob SquarePants. I mean, just imagine "Disney's SpongeBob SquarePants:the show" and Disney's SpongeBob SquarePants:the movie" They would ruin it. But my point is, Nobody has that funny quality like Patrick Star.

How about Warner Bros. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Show? That sounds better! I think SpongeBob is more Warner Bros. than Disney. - TopTenJackson

Patrick is 8th he can be I don't think so

9Stewie Griffin

baby stewie is the most complex character of the show and at the same time the funniest, that shows that his character really has a great evil/cute charm

While every member of the Griffin family has their humorous quirks, infant Stewie and his insufferable desire for word domination and the cold death of his own mother by his hands make him the best of the show. Yet perhaps his most essential feature is his inexplicably British accent, which helps change him from angry baby to miniature James Bond movie villain, and for that, he earns a spot on this list. - montreal45

Stewie is the best of all cartoons I ever seen, he is classical character in all animation history. He can make you cry in 2 minutes and that's is very good :)

His funnier than Peter

10Daffy Duck

the best comedian the world has ever seen

"I agree with the other posters about this character. Everything about this character is funny, and everything he does is funny. I don't know anyone who doesn't like Daffy Duck.

You're right. He is one of a kind, and a original cartoon character. Everything he does is funny. And his speech is also funny!

He is awesome

The Newcomers

?Chef Pisghetti (Curious George)
?Berry Punch

The Contenders

11Goku

he is great, very positive and able for any fight thats all!

Goku is brilliant but Dragonball z wouldn't be the same without Vegeta he makes the show so brilliant he should be number 1!

vegeta really is the strongest because vegeta never gives up in train more than goku

Surely one of the best characters ever invented. Without a doubt my personal favourite character of all time!

V127 Comments
12Bender

Contrary to the episode, Bender should be allowed on T.V. More often. The Homer Simpson of the robot universe.

Bender is great, he should really be way up on this list. "I need mouth to ass resuscitation". Fry is the story behind Futurama, but I think Bender should have been.

Bender Bending Rodriguez is one of the funniest animated characters period! Goku can bite Bender's shiny metal, red hot glowing, glorious glowing ass! - Chris0

Bite my shiny metal, glorious golden, splintery wooden, frozen metal, colossal metal, red hot glowing ass. - Dale

13Peter Griffin

I hate Peter griffin with a burning passion. He is fat, lazy, stupid, and a drunk. Used to be funny in the early 2000s but in 2007 he started to be a ripoff of Homer Simpson. This son stewie also sucks because he likes to kill people. Peter griffin should go straight to hell.

stewie is just world domination freak but peter is actually got real comedy - decorulez97

Stewie isn't even that funny should replace him with peter - matt52597

Peter is awesome!

14Bart Simpson

Ay Curumba! GO BART!

HOMER-FUNNY
CARTMAN-ALRIGHT
STEWIE-CRANKS ME UP
SPONGEBOB-GREAT
BUGS BUNNY-ALRIGHT
NARUTO-STUPID
SUPERMARIO-ALRIGHT
SCOOBYDOO-ALRIGHT
MICKEYMOUSE-ALRIGHT
KINGBOWSER-GRRRRRRRRR! HAHA! - Thomas245

Bart Simpson appeared in so many Butterfinger commercials throughout North America. - playstationfan66

Awesome, cool, and better than all the stupid family guy characters. He made me laugh the most when he skateboarded to Krusty Burger naked and the Flanders said wonderful penis.

Eat my shorts

15Mordecai (Regular Show)

Yeah-yeah Come on this guy NEEDS to be in top 20 he is the best Cartoon Network character EVER!

I love mordecai but what happened to rigby

Finally someone puts Mordecai in the top classic cartoon characters list.

He is good at singing

16Jerry (Tom and Jerry)

Jerry kills... Tom and Jerry is the best old cartoon I've ever seen in my entire life! WHY IS JERRY DOWN HERE AND TOM IS WAY UP THERE! ^

Yeah! Why jerry did not join tom there? Trying to be independent? Oh my! I like them when they're together.. I like their company.. Wohoo

Jerry should be on first because EAST OR WEST JERRY IS THE BEST

Tom sucks! But Jerry rocks! Jerry needs to be at the top!

17Invader Zim

Invader Zim IS and always will be the best show of all time (in my opinion anyway). It only got cancelled of some bad views... But I know that its been 11 years since the shows cancellation, but I still and always will love this show.

Why is Zim so low? Invader Zim was a great show with great characters, Zim was my favorite! He was always shouting with his cute voice and he should be in the top ten at least. I was very sad when I found out the show got cancelled and I still am. ZIM FOR EVER SHALL RULE! Oh and why is a sponge number 1?

This character should be in the top ten. I know this show got canceled but gas a huge fanbase. This is the best show ever! Everyone will obey the zim hands of ZIM!

He should be number one

18Ed

Sad this show is only number 11. It was by far the best cartoon I ever saw as a kid. I'll take any episode of this show over what Cartoon Network has on now. Not to mention how bad shows on Disney and Nickelodeon are too. It's a mystery as to why SpongeBob is #3 since it's no exception.

That is right, son. The mind is a terrible organ to shuffle. LOL! - vmacmil-1

Ed is the funniest cartoon character ever! - nallimcamybloc

He is addicted to jawbreakers and stinky stuff. His voice is weird but is hilarious. I thought is was funny when he was mad because he had a pebble in his shoe and told eddy to shut up. Ed Edd and Eddy is way better than today's cartoons.

19Super Mario

I hope my kids know who Mario is. I want them to be able to pick him out of a lineup. If he keeps making games like "Super Mario Galaxy" than they definitely will be able to. - Snuckles

Okay, I will list my opinion on this. Mario is a GREAT video game character, but not a GREAT cartoon character. Mario shouldn't be on this list, he should be on top 10 best VIDEO Game characters. This isn't really a 'Cartoon'. But Mario is awesome. Sorry to correct you buddy but in the Super Mario Bros Super show, that is peach, not daisy. Daisy never appeared in a cartoon.

I like that Mario show and I feel sorry for anyone who loves it... JUST KIDDING! I love Mario and he rocks so damn good. For anyone who watches Mario's show they'll think that the princess is peach but she's not. It is Daisy, and for a fact Birdo is also in it too.

Princess Peach deserves to be top 1 on the Top Ten Worst Cartoon Characters list.

Mario will go on forever.

20Squidward Tentacles

He is probably one of the funniest cartoon characters ever. His design is original and very expressive, his voice actor, Rodger Bumpass, is a comedy marvel with the dialog.
It's his body language, his facial expressions, his rounded and very human personality which contributed to him getting a LOT of sympathy from fans in later seasons... he's like a very deadpan, very sarcastic Daffy Duck. The guy who can never win so chooses to be snide and sarcastic about everything.
And we feel for this guy because most of the time the world is just out to get him. Whatever he tries, he can't win. He can't escape it. Wherever he goes, trouble finds him.

I know that quite a bit of the time, he IS the trouble. He's the one causing problems for his neighbors either because he thinks it's funny or because he thinks he's better than them. What an ego that guy has! He's only a half-decent clarinet player!

And boy is he hilarious. In the earlier seasons, his reactions to everything ...more

Everyone's a critic for not putting me up in the top ten. I mean really Patrick and SpongeBob are deemed better than me.

Hey, he and Spongebob are same, he should be at least number 10 - ShamsulBahriel

Very good in the earlier seasons. Absolutely love him in Band Geeks, since he finally got the chance to be on stage, with hundreds of people in the stadium. It was probably the best SpongeBob moment ever. It ended with Squidward happily jumping in the air, and if it were in a newer season, it would probably end with Squidward's dreams getting crushed or something.
