Top Ten Best Cartoon CharactersHere is a list of the top 10 greatest cartoon characters from animated TV shows.
The Top Ten
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!
**rushes to cat store, buys a cat, gets home and attaches cat to dog collar. Takes outside, and drags back inside**
Homer: well well well, look what the cat dragged in!
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!
Old Spongebob's laugh was fun but new spongebob's laugh just isn't the same. I agree - Lunala
Almost voted eric cartman, but spongebob is a legend
I like spongebob because my classmate love all this and I have collection spongebob''
Old spongebob was funny, smart, and loveable. Now he's a dirty snitch396 Comments
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!
The Intelligent Mastermind.
Looney toones has preserved because of bugs bunny. - nik
Bugs bunny is probably the funniest character in the world. His catchy punch line "What's Up Doc? " Gets stuck in my head for days on end. He can beat anyone at their own game! I love his character! Who wouldn't love him? I mean sure, everyone who he beats is a potential idiot, but that just makes it all the more funny! Please vote for bugs bunny. Don't and you'll pay the price! The price of 1 dollar.193 Comments
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
Cartman chopped up his own father, ground him up into chilly, and then fed him to his half brother. Need I say more.
Honestly I don't know where to start lol. Eric Is a funny child who doesn't care who's in his way he gets mistaken sometimes and it's VERY funny. Although he is kinda a brat he is still my favorite character.
Why spongebob? I mean he annoying and disgusting.136 Comments
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
The one and only worlds most popular character that you see his face every where and made by the best Walt Disney
Should be number 1!
Mickey mouse is the best American classic he should be. #194 Comments
hahaha patrick is so funny, I love him hahaha, like the episodes survival of the idiots and chocolate with nuts
For all of you that think that Bugs Bunny is better than Patrick Star, F YOU. Just because he says, what's up doc, doesn't mean anything. Patrick is the funniest cartoon character in cartoon history. He is a very likable character and can get a laugh out of almost anyone. He is an amazing character, and way better than any of these other cartoon characters.
Is this the krusty crab?
He's fat and awesome!102 Comments
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 is one of the OP cartoons, it's his 50th anniversary! He is funny, can be smart when needs to be and overall, a classic.
He is the best! - Bizcut4life94 Comments
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
Only character that is still good
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
Best old baby deud ever123 Comments
Contrary to the episode, Bender should be allowed on T.V. More often. The Homer Simpson of the robot universe.
John DiMaggio totally nails voicing Bender
Has the same voice as Rath from Ben 10 (my favorite alien) plus cool and hilarious character with his iconic "bite my shiny metal ass". LOL
Best robot - ElSherlock53 Comments
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
It's funny how so many SpongeBob characters are here, yet Squidward ranks below the admittedly charming but annoying SpongeBob and the mind-blowingly dumb and irritable Patrick. If this was a Best Civilians list, he wouldn't make it, partially cause of his endless sarcasm and mean spirit, but this spirit came when SpongeBob showed up, and he has all the right to hate him because of the annoyance the yellow boy portrays and the torture he and Patrick have dealt to Squidward. His sarcastic quotes and relatable attitude (I REALLY WISH I WEREN'T HERE RIGHT NOW button) make him endlessly funny.
Squidward is awesome - ElSherlock
Everyone's a critic for not putting me up in the top ten. I mean really Patrick and SpongeBob are deemed better than me.57 Comments
A hilarious antagonist, but although he's greedy and unscrupulous, loves his son Cedric, and starts becoming a little bit more decent to everyone else as the series goes on, even helping to save Bert's life at one point. - SourNote2014
Rich, but honest and good. - SourNote2014
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
The one who chase always gets hurt.. Like me,Jokee106 Comments
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.
Hoo-Hoo! Hoo-Hoo! Hoo-Hoo!
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!39 Comments
Ay Curumba! GO BART!
STEWIE-CRANKS ME UP
KINGBOWSER-GRRRRRRRRR! HAHA! - Thomas245
Should be 1
Cow - ElSherlock
Ay caramba! Eat my shorts! Don’t have a cow man!
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.
Eh eh eh hey Lois
Homer is better - ElSherlock
stewie is just world domination freak but peter is actually got real comedy - decorulez9739 Comments
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
Amazing character - ElSherlock
Finally someone puts Mordecai in the top classic cartoon characters list.47 Comments
Who doesn't love him?
He's the coolest out of all cartoon characters.
And also the best personality of them.
Mickey's too nice. Donald's the one who always gets me laughing with his speech impediment and quick temper. He's definitely one of the best cartoon characters of all time.
Yes - ElSherlock
I've grown up reading Donald stories, he truly is one of a kind.
For me he'll always be that character that I've always wished was real... - Condotierre
"HI COW" Had me dying
Gir is the awesomest dumb robot in a dog suit ever - voterguyperson
"I love this show. " And I'd love this list if Gir was higher! - Aceacles
aw come on gir is hilarious!
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!29 Comments
People need the right mindset to watch this show. (That isn't an insult it's based on taste.) After watching the series, I had a good taste in my mouth. - DLG
Who could not love him? He is just as good as any Goku and he is way better than some Homer Simpson or Peter Griffin. Plus the ratings show that he had one of the best cartoons ever.
He is a fun loving 12 year old who is the Avatar, a bender that can bend all four elements. If you haven't seen this show I highly suggest it. It is bettet than Dragonball Z or Naruto. The other Characters also clash together with Aang perfectly
AVATAR IS THE BEST SHOW EVER
Honestly, Aang is one of the most realistic kids ever, which is ironic since being the Avatar is because being the Jesus of the Avatar World.
He’s powerful like Naruto and Goku and can be childish and fun-loving like them, but Aang in my opinion is written better because he is childish and naive and kind but not stupid. Naruto forgives too easy and buds up the enemies with the Talk No Jutsu moves but Aang, while not going as far as to kill his enemies, doesn’t befriend them but instead defeats them to a point where they can’t hurt others. He also completely alienated from other customs like Goku and etc. Aang rocks. - Nymphette
He's sooo cute and awesome.
Best South Park Character - ElSherlock
Wow... I don't see why Kenny's not in at least the top fifty. He's a great character, much more built up than Cartman. Everyone recognizes the ever so familiar orange parka. He's so much more than just a pervert; he's an iconic character in many different ways, I just can't even explain. In short, Kenny's an awesome character and deserves better than 105th. Okay, rant over.
KENNY IS THE SECOND COOLEST IT WOULD BE ERIC CARTMAN KENNY STAN THEN KYLE18 Comments
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 is not as innocent as you think - IceBearRules
I love you jerry37 Comments
The only anime character to appear on the list, Pikachu's appeal comes entirely from his adorability. The little guy can only say his name, and he has red dots for cheeks. Come on, now. While the video games and trading card game helped, Pikachu's appearance as a cartoon character is what has made him a worldwide icon for the Pokemon franchise and japanese animation in general. - montreal45
Worst Pokemon ever! - Smash64
Pikachu is loyal to his friends, is friendly and fun to be around, and wont cause trouble. He is very formidable in a battle. Not only that but He's cute. The only problem I have with him is that I think, buried deep within the inner sanctum of his mind, lies a psychopathic personality that might manifest itself one day and doom humanity to vertigo.
Gotta Catch Them 'll72 Comments
This is crazy. The last poll I saw ranked Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, and Snoopy as the three most recognizable cartoon characters worldwide. I am a fanatic of the comic strip Peanuts. How did these three not get in the top ten of this list?!
He had fantasies of being a world war one pilot. This propensity by Shultz to glorify war through the fantasies of a hawkish beagle with bloodlust is disturbing, albeit eerily fascinating. I am torn between admiration and condemnation when I contemplate my feelings towards this perverse abomination of the cartooning medium.
He should be above Jerry. This dog is a legend! - Spongehouse
When people hear Peanuts, who's the first character they think of? Snoopy! That's who! Heck, you could say Charlie Brown and people will STILL remember Snoopy, his flying ace routine, his friend Woodstock, and that wild imagination that has kept his name remembered to this day! Did I mention he's been in the Thanksgiving parade longer than any other character? Well, he has!30 Comments
I think his name is Fred or something. Anyway, he's hilarious
My Leg! - TheAwesomeBowser
The my leg guy is only funny in the first 5 or so seasons. Now he just straight up screams!
Ow my leg! - ElSherlock10 Comments
He is really hilarious! In video game wizard he was really emotional!
Rigby has a big & entertaining presence about his character & its little surprise that he is on this list, at times he can be a real nasty jerk and at other times a loyal & understanding friend, in later series he started to outshine his counterpart Mordecai, who seem to go backwards, whilst rigby went from strength to strength.
This guy should be in the top ten! He is hilarious! But 205! Is that all! Something is wrong with you kids!
I love regular show so much
Rigby is my favourite charc
And strong guy
He is so smart, brave and kind! He is amazing!
I'm a girl and I relate to dipper more than Mabel!
He's so relatable and one of my top 3 characters in Gravity Falls( the other being Mabel and Bill Cipher, of course )
Adorable and very smart, and will almost sacrifice anything, for the people who he loves.
Reminds me of me. I love it.22 Comments
Best fish in the real land
Best character ever! Woo!
Darwin is one of my favorite characters on this list he shouldn't be down here
Darwin should be #1! - Cartoonnetworkfan199019 Comments
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-137 Comments
He's the voice of reason
I personally wish Kyle was my best friend, or even brother! Also, the smart characters on SP deserve more glory than they already get!

Ralph is hilarious and everybody should like him!
Me fail English. That's Unpossible.
Nelson: Bart said I am pee. He's made of pee.
Ralph: I made Bart in my pants.
Class in what year was 1 plus 1. The answer is Amazing Ralph
he is just the best. the things he says make me wet myself - munkee_linc97
the things he says are hilarious he is just so random9 Comments
I hate how she always gets away with anything she does! I don't hate her, just how everyone puts her on a pedestal! - RoseWeasley
I like blossom then bubbles then buttercup. She loves wee kittys like me
She's so cute
Bubbles is so cute, she should get a higher place on the list. She's actually quite relatable and she's such a sweet little girl and light blue is also my favourite colour. - DragonPrincess113 Comments
Gumball has to be the best character, he deserves a spot in the top 10. honestly he is super funny, super cute and WHO DOESN'T WATCH GUMBALL! If you have you have got to love the characters. and his sister is super intelligent for a four year old and so cute. whoever didn't watch gumball, it would be understandable if they don't love gumball. though if you haven't I'd say give it a shot and you wont regret it. - Katana-Sai
Gumball is the most amazing dude don't have time to say all the good things about this amazing dude!
This guy deserves a medal because he has such a crazy attitude and not afraid to express that to everyone :3.
Gumball is my favorite cartoon character and I've been noticing he is autistic like me and he reminds of myself and he loves candy video games and his mom his favorite superhero is captain punch his favorite video game is the tale of zelmore and his favorite movies are captain punch winter fist and galactic wars and he's like a little brother to me and is better than lame cartoon characters and he knows what's best for him33 Comments
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!
He is awesome! That's all I can say!
vegeta really is the strongest because vegeta never gives up in train more than goku150 Comments
She is really cool now in b&w rival destinies!
In the Movie 18 of pokemon the gene sect ash defeated new two
It is my best cartoon actor
Pokemon, gotta catch em all - Goatworlds5 Comments
Best female character ever! No other characters is like her, how is it possible that more people like that jerk, rainbow dash, rather than this cute, strong, little girl? Buttercup shows her tough side and sensitive side which makes me like her and she is cool and funny. She never bores me and she looks so unique I love her hair style and she is so pretty, I can't stop looking at her. She can beat up most of the characters on this list and fight. No matter what, she is the best female character ever.
Favorite cartoon character from favorite cartoon series
She Reminds of Unikitty From The Lego Movie Cause they're both always Happy and angry sometimes
Best tomboy - ElSherlock31 Comments
Winnie The Pooh wanders about the hundred acre wood acting childlike and cute, but believe me when I say this, he is evil. Not evil in a generic down to earth way, but evil in a dark, sinister way. Winnie is Satan infiltrating the fragile minds of youth.
Winnie the Pooh is a very sweet and kind cartoon character for both children and adults. He tries to help out his friends and teaches all of us what kindness really is.
I grew up with him. Literally. I was watching Winnie since I was 3 and I had all those dolls and books that came in about Winnie. He is awesome. My first role model ever!
When I saw his name on the list I literally went, "Aaww! " Pooh bear is so adorable, kind, sweet, and innocent - an icon from people's childhood. He's so simple and wonderful. And sometimes, we need to step back and just appreciate the simple and innocent things in life.13 Comments
In y opinion shes the best
Her songs are so good - Lunala
Higher ranking please!
If I was an adventure time character I'd marry her in an instant like I did on a site called myfconline (marry your favourite character online). She's too important to me.1 Comment
How could you go wrong with a character like this? He proves to be rather a great character in moments like: Befriending Elmer in "A Wish too Far", freeing Chompy from his pen on "Dream Goat", giving Tootie his Crimson Chin toy in "Boy Toy"... I could go on and on with how spectacularly cool Timmy Turner is. Sure, he has flaws in character, but who doesn't? I believe all the positives of Timmy overthrow any negatives he may have. And he's funnier than most people give him credit for too. - Z-Rocker
Hilarious. Just straight up hilarious. You know you are going to laugh when Turner is on the screen. His personality is so emotionally moving, too. He might be a little selfish, but proves to be a good person overall.
In, like, many years from now... I bet Timmy Turner will have the status of Bugs Bunny or something. Okay, maybe that might be unlikely. But Bugs Bunny has buck teeth like Timmy and they're both equally looney.
Timmy Turner should be, like, in the top 3. You can't go wrong with a character who's compassionate enough to befriend Elmer in "A Wish to Far", give Tootie his Crimson Chin toy in "Boy Toy", or even freeing a goat from a miserable pen in "Dream Goat". He also has humorious traits to him, too. Overall I think he is underrated.13 Comments
Though she is a lot of a comic relief character,She is protective and brave. Don't believe me? She protected Steven from Ginger by fighting. - DemonSpiritGhostKitten
Should be way higher up on the list, she is possibly the best character in SU and in my opinion one of the best developed comedic characters of all time. Most shows tend to make their comedic relief simply dumb and have no character, not with Amethyst. She secretly feels like an outsider and she'll nevet be as strong as the other Crystal Gems, and so she will sometimes lash out at them. She also is generally carefree and someone you wish you had in real life as a friend. Overall I think Rebecca Sugar gets too little credit for making Amethyst.
I should've voted for Amy, she's such a deep character, amd definitely my favourite out of the theee main Crystal Gems. I love her - fandom__universe
Charlie Brown has always been my childhood and no other cartoon character could ever replace him as my favorite cartoon character. - BurnAux
Charlie Brown is one of the most famous cartoon characters in the entire world!
I love Charlie Brown he is such a great cartoon character, though I often feel bad for him - Spongehouse
One of the most lovable goofballs there are next to Patrick - Wudzer3 Comments
She is one of the smartest characters, loves science, very emphatic, always against discrimination.
I love the way she is smarter than everyone I wonder if Maggie will be the same
There are episodes where she does her best - ElSherlock
She's so me though! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior10 Comments
He's more badass than Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee combined! I mean he defeated the rest of the Justice League on his own for cryin' out loud!
DC's best superhero. - girlcool
He is funny in the world of imagination
I like batman2 Comments
Illuminati Confirmed. - TheAwesomeBowser
AWESOME and I love his sense of humor - sure I'm insane!
Epic boi at
Bill Cipher is easily the best creation of all time. He has a bit of dark humor and sarcasm. I love dark humor!
Which probably isn't a good thing, but I can't resist! He has the best quotes. But now, sadly, he's just a statue... Unless... I'LL FREE YOU FROM YOUR STONE STATUE! PICK ME PICK ME!
"Everyone knows that it's Butters! "
"That's Me! "
Butters is cool but I feel bad that he gets bullied he's also silly his grandma hates him his parents always ground him he's dumb his best friends don't like him he has the good is he has some EPs for him self he doesn't die like Kenny he's always obeying rules no matter the danger on a couple of EPs he killed lots of people by accident he's my favorite south park characther he never cares what any one thinks about him and he's a a good kid he once became a vampire also got lost in some scary forest that was dark butters is awesome - speed
He should of been called tomatoes

Joker is the best villain in the history of fiction and deserves to be #1! The only one of Batman's enemies that is simply Batman's complete opposite makes him so interesting! Not to mention he's the only villain that can make you laugh and intimidate you at the same time! Please help me get th clown prince of crime to number one, or at least in the top 10!
He's like the Joker but showed on screen, and I adore the character of the Joker. - iliekpiez
Especially in "Journey To The Central Nervous System Of Muriel" - xandermartin98
Very funny and nothing
Should be up higher than muriel cause courage you know I can't hear without my glasses
He's my favorite all time cartoon dog, disagree if you want to
A cute dog who will go out of his ways to save muriel
One of the most different and interesting shows I ever seen
If you don't like it keep it to yourself, after all haters gonna hate

Mabel Pines is one of my least favorite characters in fiction. She is obnoxious, annoying and entitled to the EXTREME. She behaves as if she expects everyone and everything to go her way, and she takes it VERY personally whenever anyone even tells her "No."
Guys, seriously. That annoying sister archetype isn't cute or funny. It's cancer. Let it die.
Mabel Pines is so awesome! Gravity Falls just had it's one year anniversary, and Mabel has showed us a bossy side, a silly side, a boy-crazy side, and a side that shows you the reason why Smile Dip was banned. Vote for Mabel!
Wow I can't believe Mabel Pines is at the bottom of the list! I'm probably the girl most crazy over Dipper Pines, but Mabel rocks! Seriously people?
I was out when I saw that characters from Total Trauma were on her and not our favorite adorably goofy twelve year old in sweaters with a pet pig.15 Comments
He became flanderized - ElSherlock
He's got class, character, brains, and an ambition to sooth over his troubles with a martini.
By far the most interesting character of Family Guy... Quality!
