Most Ridiculous Examples of Cartoon Logic

The Top Ten

1 Minnie Mouse gets scared of a mouse Minnie Mouse gets scared of a mouse

She must think pretty lowly of her kind - PackFan2005

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

2 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. - listotaku17

3 Gravity doesn't work until you look down Gravity doesn't work until you look down

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

7 The Flintstones celebrate Christmas before Christ was born 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

8 Everything in SpongeBob's house is frozen except for the water Everything in SpongeBob's house is frozen except for the water
9 Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey eat a chicken Donald, Huey, Louie, and Dewey eat a chicken

10 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

19 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 - listotaku17
