Most Ridiculous Examples of Cartoon Logic

The Top Ten

1 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 - SirSheep

She must think pretty lowly of her kind - PackFan2005

She’s afraid of what mouse society has become - AliciaMae

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

Look at their smiles. - Cyri

Does that mean that they are cannibals? - Votebotingsucks

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

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

Logical - SirSheep

4 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 - SirSheep

He looks tasty. - Cyri

Maybe he was abusive to them - TwilightKitsune

5 Gravity doesn't work until you look down

What happens when you look up? - SirSheep

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

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

In that case I’ll just run around randomly and never look down. - AlphaQ

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

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

Actually aardvarks have enhanced hearing so...

7 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. - listotaku17

8 Mr. Krabs listens to music with his eyes

This seems rather painful - SirSheep

9 Jimmy Neutron goes to space without any helmet

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

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

10 How did Phineas Flynn put his triangle shaped head through a shirt with a tiny opening?

The Contenders

11 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? - SirSheep

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

12 The Flintstones celebrate Christmas before Christ was born

They were Germanic pagans? Who'd've thunk it? - PositronWildhawk

The Flintstones takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, so this isn't bad logic. - 445956

13 Everything in SpongeBob's house is frozen except for the water
14 Characters are able to set fires underwater in Spongebob Squarepants

I think this is an inside joke.

15 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. - PositronWildhawk

16 What are SpongeBob's sleeves attached to?

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

17 Spongebob and Patrick have pants but squidward doesn't

Also Squidward has a shirt and Spongebob and Patrick don’t - Randomator

Is this NSFW? - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

18 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 - MickeyMouse

I never understood this

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

Does she have a Down syndrome or what? - Votebotingsucks

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

This made my day.

20 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

Gee, I wonder who they really are?
(sarcasm) - Synchronocity

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 - listotaku17

21 Brian Griffin has met Jesus Christ several times and is still an atheist
22 Mr. Krabs's daughter is a whale despite him being a crab

She must be adopted. - egnomac

23 Paper works underwater
24 How do Arthur Read's glasses stay on without nose or ear support?
25 Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life never wears pants but is suddenly naked when shirtless
26 Is Mr. Boss holding his cigar with his nose?
27 Flintstones visit Vegas before the strip even existed
28 Midas takes Hermes’ sandals away, and he can’t fly, even though he still has his hat on

From the Disney’s Hercules episode “Golden Touch”

29 God's laugh when Phantasos mentions nudity in dreams, yet men are usually naked in Ancient Greece

From the Disney’s Hercules episode “Long Nightmare”

30 When characters break their teeth, they always grow back
31 Dogs are ridden like horses

In a lot of cartoons, the characters ride dogs like horses (eg. Hercules rides Cerberus in the Disney movie, Arthur rides Rex in the "Arthur's Perfect Christmas" special, Tommy and Chuckie rides Spike, Krypto the Superdog, Clifford the Big Red Dog, etc...)

32 In Courage The Cowardly Dog, Eustace is able to chew his food without having any teeth
33 In Courage the Cowardly Dog, Eustace is able to come back from the dead an infinite number of times
34 Cartoon characters survive major injuries that would cause death in real life
35 Dora is asking obvious questions but people on the internet don't seem to understand that.
36 Chuckie Finster in Rugrats is 2 years old so why don't the grown ups notice him walking and talking?
37 Why does Spongebob live in a pineapple?
38 Spongebob Squarepants' brain looks wildly different in each appearance that it makes throughout the series
