Most Ridiculous Examples of Cartoon Logic

The Top Ten
1 Minnie Mouse gets scared of a mouse Minnie Mouse gets scared of a mouse

Well she basically just looked back before her kind evolved. And maybe she saw that those mice were better, getting planets built for them and such

That's not just any rat on the floor, that's 6ix9ine.

2 Donald Duck never wears pants but is suddenly naked when shirtless Donald Duck never wears pants but is suddenly naked when shirtless

He doesn't like people seeing duck nipples.

He is a duck.
Real ducks do not wear clothes.

Ducks don't wear clothes.

3 SpongeBob takes a bath underwater SpongeBob takes a bath underwater

Nearly everything in Spongebob Squarepants regrets nothing when it comes to cartoon logic. From this, to Sandy whistling or playing a saxaphone with a glass dome on her head, to listening to music with eyes, to washing sponge as a sponge, just everything. Don't get me started on Mr. Krabs and Pearl being father and daughter.

4 The Three Little Pigs have their father hanging on the wall The Three Little Pigs have their father hanging on the wall

You'd think that he'd go bad soon. They should either freeze him or eat him already

They pulled a Euronymous and took a pic of his corpse. Now that's what I call dark.

It looks tasty but I can't eat pork oof.

He looks tasty.

5 SpongeBob washes the dishes when he's a sponge SpongeBob washes the dishes when he's a sponge

Not to mention that sponges found in the ocean are not the same thing as sponges found in a kitchen sink.

Well, would you want to douse yourself in soap and rub dishes all over yourself?
I didn't think so.

6 Mr. Krabs listens to music with his eyes Mr. Krabs listens to music with his eyes
7 Gravity doesn't work until you look down Gravity doesn't work until you look down

In that case I'll just run around randomly and never look down.

To this day the "Uh-oh..." moment still makes me laugh.

My theory: That's how gravity worked back then but it changed but due to it being used already, they used it but a lot less

I wish this was true but sadly it ain't!

8 Dora can speak Spanish and English at age 4, but can't locate things right next to her. Dora can speak Spanish and English at age 4, but can't locate things right next to her.

And she calls herself an explorer despite her choice to selectively travel through mapped territories.

Dora can speak Spanish better than I can but at least I know where to find things. Meanwhile, DOra be like "wHere da cLub" and I'm just sayin "In front of you, moite"

Does she have a Down syndrome or what?

Dora must be nearly blind because she needs the map to go around her room but she's not fully blind

9 Launchpad McQuack flies a plane when he's a bird Launchpad McQuack flies a plane when he's a bird

Flying is just too difficult. Like walking. Why walk if you can drive or use those electric scooter things?

Isn't he a duck too? Why don't any of the ducks like Donald fly?

Ask Tails, he'll tell you.

10 Arthur wears headphones but they’re not on his ears Arthur wears headphones but they’re not on his ears

Actually aardvarks have enhanced hearing so...

Maybe he has another invisible pair of ears.

Well that's how I use them. The rest of you are just doing it wrong

The Contenders
11 Mr. Krabs's daughter is a whale despite him being a crab Mr. Krabs's daughter is a whale despite him being a crab

My theory: He could've married a whale that died shortly after pearl was born.

She's probably adopted.

She must be adopted.

Maybe she's adopted.

12 Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey eat a chicken Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey eat a chicken

This isn't technically cannabalism since they're ducks, not chickens.

Does that mean that they are cannibals?

Damn, cannibalism in kid's cartoons.

Look at their smiles.

13 How do Arthur Read's glasses stay on without nose or ear support? How do Arthur Read's glasses stay on without nose or ear support?

Plot twist: Arthur's glasses are secretly goggles and they're tied up at the back of his head.

14 The Flintstones celebrate Christmas before Christ was born The Flintstones celebrate Christmas before Christ was born

The Flintstones takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, so this isn't bad logic.

15 Why does Spongebob live in a pineapple?
16 Everything in SpongeBob's house is frozen except for the water Everything in SpongeBob's house is frozen except for the water
17 Jimmy Neutron goes to space without any helmet Jimmy Neutron goes to space without any helmet

That goes for a lot of cartoons where characters are in space and wear no helmet.

He made a robot dog, and a space rocket, so why is that weird?

18 Goofy is a dog who can walk and talk, but Pluto acts like a regular dog Goofy is a dog who can walk and talk, but Pluto acts like a regular dog

In the world of Mickey Mouse dogs come with retardation, Goofy is a retard who can not remember anything and Pluto is a retarded that does not speak

I never understood this

Yeah, this made no sense to me.

19 What are SpongeBob's sleeves attached to? What are SpongeBob's sleeves attached to?

They were sewn to his tiny sponge arms shortly after he came into existence.

20 Spongebob and Patrick have pants but squidward doesn't Spongebob and Patrick have pants but squidward doesn't
21 Ladybug's and Chat Noir's superhero disguises are bad, but no one, not even each other (except for a select few), knows their true identities Ladybug's and Chat Noir's superhero disguises are bad, but no one, not even each other (except for a select few), knows their true identities

I've been waiting to talk of this. I haven't seen a single image on this, so I'm glad to write a large comment. Sure, I haven't watched this show a lot, but I know a lot of it (I'll admit, I've read several wikia articles). The primary difference between both protagonists as superheroes and ordinary people is their personalities, but other than Chat Noir's night vision eyes, that's pretty much it. No one knows who they are, even if many characters get a close up look and picture of them. Not even the superheroes themselves know who they are, and they interact with each other every day! At least Tikki and Plagg know, and Plagg states, "People are blind." Everyone watching the show probably wanted to shout out to the characters on this in frustration, but at least we finally get to hear someone point something out. Even Hawk Moth (spoilers), who doesn't look at them up close as much, suspects that Chat Noir is Adrien, and he's right. Honestly, even if we don't see the protagonists ...more

22 Brian Griffin has met Jesus Christ several times and is still an atheist Brian Griffin has met Jesus Christ several times and is still an atheist
23 Characters are able to set fires underwater in Spongebob Squarepants Characters are able to set fires underwater in Spongebob Squarepants

I think this is an inside joke.

24 Is Mr. Boss holding his cigar with his nose? Is Mr. Boss holding his cigar with his nose?

He probably stuck the cigar up his nose.

25 Cartoon characters survive major injuries that would cause death in real life

You can get your head blown off, your whole body can explode and you can fall 420 meters from the ground and not die.
