Top 10 Most Iconic Cartoon Characters of All Time
Some of my friends, family members, & myself think that you would never want to miss around with Bugs Bunny; he is too smart & could be a very dangerous cartoon character to be around!
Bugs is so smart and talented plus a huge entertainment to watch.. I remember the days when I used to watch the bugs bunny show all day
Bugs Bunny, while no longer relevant as a cartoon today, is still recognizable even to modern kids.
Bugs is more iconic, talented, smart, cunning than Di$ney's pet, but Warner Bros. marketing on him fails in comparison to Mickey
What nonsense is this? Mickey as 2!? Dude, he paid the way for almost everyones franchise. Even Bugs Bunny himself. Bugs may be more enjoyable, but Mickey is more recognizable, iconic, and popular. You would already know who he is by looking at his silhouette.
You cannot call yourself a fan of anything cartoon related if you don't know who Mickey Mouse is. Mickey is the one who basically IGNITED the movement for cartoon characters all over the world. Not to mention he appeared in the world's first animated feature with sound and music. If it weren't for Steamboat Willie we wouldn't have 99% of the movies with sound and music we have today.
Mickey Mouse is & will always be one of my life time favorites (along with Minnie Mouse and their friends); I have been able to +7 years & can still speak in the voice of Mickey Mouse. I am 31 & am always thinking about him, still watch shows that have him like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, have a laugh, Mickey Mouse (show), Mickey and the Roadster Racers, Mickey's mixed-up adventures, and more!
Bugs Bunny wouldn't even exist without Mickey Mouse and his silhouette is already more iconic than Bugs. Literally the whole world stopped to celebrate Mickey's 50th Birthday. Bugs? Nope.
SpongeBob is the most well-received modern cartoon icon to date. He had an early slump in quality due to his creator's departure, then a brief jump in quality due to his creator's return, and now back to a probable slump due to his creator's death(less gloss over the musical as that's not animation). But SpongeBob's influence and greatness are forever remembered by his fans. Some may say SpongeBob is annoying, but I think that's a bunch of hoopla...work with me here.
He's my favorite cartoon character. He's not only had a huge impact on my childhood and even teenhood, but he's also given me a better outlook on life.
Out of all the characters here, nothing can beat spongebob even if I like looney tunes, the simpsons, etc spongebob has been in my childhood always and it will always be in part of my heart.
Should be Number 9.This bucked-tooth yellow sponge who works
at a burger point known as the Krusty Krab and have a
annoyingly high-pitched laugh has been entertaining kids
Scooobyyy doobie dooo.. Haha. a dog detective who loved Scooby snacks. The way he ate them made me want to eat too. Haha.. Plus I learnt a lot from this cartoon! Can't forget it. Will never forget it
Nothing can beat this classic Great Dane! One of my favorite childhood shows.
This crazy scooby the G.O.A.T # 1 or 2 out of him and Mickey bugs should be 3...
Scooby is the best.
My favv, the tom and jerry show.. It never gets old.. Started watching it when I was 5 and now I m 15 and it's still the same.. As funny as before. No cartoon can ever come nearby these two... They should have been in top 5 at least (no offense)
Jerry is the most iconic cartoon character and he is my favourite cartoon character and he was also my favourite in my childhood his tricks entertains everyone and he is also funny he also possesses a lot of skills he is way cooler, better and best character than that rude tom.
I grew up watching this cartoon, so entertaining .
Tom and jerry is ultimate classic show.
Donald and his Duck brethren rose in popularity enough to influence the designs of the Warners from Animaniacs. Also, if Disney had to give Mickey a non-bad guy comedic partner, it'll likely be the duck that gets all the bad luck.
I grow up watching Donald Duck even before I heard of mickey mouse.He is one of my favourite characters of all time.
I always wanted to be him and not have to wear pants!
Daffy is known to be Bugs Bunny's comedy partner. However, Daffy proved he was able to make it without Bugs in solo cartoons like Duck Amuck, a cartoon classic. Of course, when people think of a Looney Tunes short, you can't say rabbit season without saying duck season. *gunshot*
Should be top 5. Peanuts is underrated
Should be number 7
It was hard deciding between Bart and Homer to represent The Simpsons, one of the longest-running cartoon series. However, Bart is a notorious cartoon icon as many adults during early Simpson years didn't appreciate kids coming to school with shirts with this rascal on them. In a way, that only made Bart even more of an icon.
Kids all over my school have Bart Simpson stickers all over there laptops
This should be Number 10,she may be sexy...but may have funny hair,and have the
entertaining "Betty boop boop boop! "and made several cultural appearences like
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit? ".
I love snoopy so much
Just plain cute.
No one for Tom? Only me? Wow, Don't you believe it! I thought he was the best and funniest one in the cartoons! He may not be the best, but I really felt sorry for my number 2 favorite cat (Sylvester being number 1) so I voted for one of the best Hanna Barbera characters.
Tom is anyway iconic cartoon character as he is very funny and has useful skills which indicates him to be a very great iconic cartoon character.
It is my favorite cartoon character of all time...
Grew up with these guys! Loved their cartoon.
He's great, and light hearted.
Kyle is the greatest south park character.. he's honest, self respected and authentic, helpful..
He's just like Arnold shortman in hey Arnold really, a good kid..
Kyle has a nice personality I like that he's genuine
Voice of South Park?! That would be cartman
My favorite character ever. 'squeeaal! ' Optimus Prime is the coolest being ever created. Why can't he be real ( 'sniff sniff'
Adorable little guys.
Really, I only chose Minnie because of Mickey. She really doesn't hold as a character but is more ingrained in animation than the other characters on this list. Remember, we're grading how much these characters are iconic, not how much you liked their cartoons. Also, who is Horrid Henry, Carl Carlson, and BoBoiBoy?!
The greatest .
Garfield is a housecat, owned by the silly cartoonist Jon Arbuckle. Garfield is no ordinary housepet. He's lazy, egocentric and have an enormous appetite. And he does not want to chase or eat mice. He loves to pull pranks as well -and he absolutely loves to kick Jon's other pet Odie off the table. ...read more.
Garfield is amazing he does everything I want to do every day eat, sleep, eat some more, watch TV, sleep some more and kick odie of the table what's not to love
Garfield is lazy, sarcastic, loves lasagna, literally nothing to hate about him
Personally, South Park set a standard for adult animation. If any character would be considered the face of this crude and borderline offensive yet topical and occasionally plot-rich series, it would be this sociopath of a kid, Eric Cartman. I would've voted for Kenny but he hardly talks intelligibly and was probably already killed.
Comes up with the best schemes.
While I wouldn't put him in the top 10 due to his dwindling fame(no thanks to his reboot movie being canceled), Popeye is still somewhat fresh in the minds of cartoon fans. Maybe it's his catchy jingle, his lessons to children to eat their vegetables(even spinach), or how he represented the US army around WWII where American pride was dangerously high(emphasis on dangerous). All we know is that despite all these years, people still remember this one of a kind sailor man.
Promoting health and wellness to young folks, can you beat that? And also, those macho forearms would give Popeye the ultimate advantage in any arm wrestling match with any other cartoon character in the history of cartoons.
Popeye the sailor man.. Pee po! I love him :) I miss him and I still wait for him. now they don't show it but every cartoon lover will wait for you to come again popeye.. you were our hero at tomes
