Top 10 Most Iconic Cartoon Characters of All Time

The Top Ten

Mickey Mouse Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928.

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!

Definitely the face of all cartoons. After all, Mickey is the longest-running cartoon character and the reason why the cartoon industry grew in popularity. Without Mickey, there wouldn't be cartoons period. Also, it's a real statement when people can recognize a character from just three circles.

Mickey Mouse is by far the most iconic cartoon character and the mostg recognizable fictional character everyone around the world when shown a picture will recognize Mickey Mouse.

Without a doubt, Mickey Mouse is the most Famous and Iconic cartoon character of the 20th and 21st century. If you haven’t heard who Mickey Mouse is, you clearly can’t call yourself a fan of cartoons. Mickey is, was, and will always be the most Iconic cartoon character of all.

Bugs Bunny Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, created by the staff of Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros.) He is one of the most famous cartoon characters, and he is in the show Looney Tunes. His famous quote is "What's up doc?". He is a gray colored bunny with big teeth and big feet. His ...read more.

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.

Whoever hates him does not have humanity.-Everyone who watched this show

Homer Simpson Homer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

Homer Simpson is very funny character and he is in one of the longest running shows he has been loved by many people and deserves to be at number 1

SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

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.

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.

I'll take it. But sadly I checked nicks roster and nicktoons for 2019/20, and sadly spongebob isn't on there

Fun fact: 80% of people on the planet know who lives in a pineapple under the sea.

Scooby-Doo

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.

He is tied with Spongebob and Bugs Bunny

Why is everyone on here retarded?

Jerry Mouse Jerry Mouse is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films. He is a mouse that gets chased by Tom, but tries to trick him so he won't catch him .

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)

So funny this cartoon will never get old. LOL (why is this not number 1 no offense)

I grew up watching this cartoon, so entertaining .

Tom and jerry is ultimate classic show.

Fred Flintstone Frederick "Fred" Flintstone, is the main character of the animated sitcom The Flintstones, which aired during prime-time on ABC during the original series' run from 1960 to 1966. Fred is the husband of Wilma Flintstone and father of Pebbles Flintstone.

Fred flint stone is my favorite character. I don't know

Charlie Brown

Should be top 5. Peanuts is underrated

Good ol' Charlie Brown. Who doesn't love him? -Heather Wold(AKA little red-haired girl)

Should be number 7

Donald Duck Donald Duck is a cartoon character created in 1934 at Walt Disney Productions. Donald is an anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. He typically wears a sailor shirt and cap with a bow tie.

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!

Goes great with chip n dale.

Bart Simpson Bartholomew JoJo "Bart" Simpson is the oldest child, and the only son, in the 1987 show The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Groening. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson.

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

The Contenders

Kyle Broflovski Kyle Broflovski is a main character in the animated television series South Park. He is voiced by and loosely based on co-creator Matt Stone.

Adorable little guys.

Daffy Duck Daffy Duck is an animated cartoon character produced by Warner Bros. Styled as an anthropomorphic black duck, the character has appeared in cartoon series such as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, where he usually has been depicted as the best friend and occasional arch-rival of Bugs Bunny.

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*

Betty Boop Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick.

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? ".

Iconic

Barney Gumble Barnard "Barney" Gumble is a fictional character on the American animated sitcom The Simpsons. The character is voiced by Dan Castellaneta and first appeared in the series premiere episode "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire".
Tom (Tom and Jerry) Thomas "Tom" Cat is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films.

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.

It is my favorite cartoon character of all time...

Grew up with these guys! Loved their cartoon.

I love very must this cary

Optimus Prime Optimus Prime is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. Optimus Prime is consistently depicted as having strong moral character, excellent leadership, and sound decision-making skills, and possesses brilliant military tactics, powerful martial arts, and advanced alien weaponry.

My favorite character ever. 'squeeaal! ' Optimus Prime is the coolest being ever created. Why can't he be real ( 'sniff sniff'

Should Number 8.

Awesome

He's the best!

WHY WHY WHY IS GARFIELD ONLY NUMBER 13! THIS SUPERSTAR SHOULD BE WAY UP THERE. GARFIELD IS THE GREATEST COMIC/CARTOON/MOVIE CHARACTER IN THE WHOLE WORLD, HANDS DOWN, NO COMPETETION!

Popeye Popeye the Sailor is a fictional American cartoon character created by Elzie Crisler Segar. The character first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip Thimble Theatre on January 17, 1929, and Popeye became the strip's title in later years.

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

Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

He's from an anime, not cartoon.

Pikachu is cutest Pokemon

Video game character

Eric Cartman Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

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.

Cartman is a big basterd

Goofy Goofy is a funny-animal cartoon character created in 1932 at Walt Disney Productions. Goofy is a tall, anthropomorphic black dog with a Southern drawl, and typically wears a turtle neck and vest, with pants, shoes, white gloves, and a tall hat originally designed as a rumpled fedora . Goofy is a close ...read more.

He's great, and light hearted.
