Every TV show has a main protagonist or two, and on this list, we'll be counting down the best main protagonists from animated TV shows. Do not add supporting characters like Patrick Star, Grunkle Stan, Zuko, etc. because they are not the main protagonists, they are supporting protagonists. Oh, and also if a show has a villain protagonist, they're aloud on this list too because they're still the main character, example: Zim (Invader Zim). So basically any main character from an animated TV show is aloud on this list. SPOILERS AHEAD.

So basically, you all probably know by now that Avatar: The Last Airbender is my favorite cartoon. Twinkle Toes is my second favorite character from the show. He is brave, heroic, and optimistic. He defeated the fire lord at age 12 (technically age 112 but you get the idea). Oh, and he's sort of inspiring. - PeeledBanana
