Our Favorite Animated Characters
Here it is: the definitive list of our favorite animated characters from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s.
Tom and Jerry: Jerry Mouse—that was the cutest little zoot suit ever.
Scooby Doo: Norville “Shaggy” Rogers, everyone’s favorite hungry buddy.
Pink Panther Show: The Inspector, because Pink himself was a bit irritating, and anything based on Peter Sellers wins in the 1970s.
Challenge of the Super Friends: Lex Luthor, because we love the Legion of Doom.
Laff-A-Lympics: Mumbly, the team captain of the Really Rottens, who really just snickers.
Transformers: Starscream the Decepticon; yeah, he was a little whiny, but he had an awesome sword and he was a scientist too.
Thundercats: Cheetara, the only female for many episodes, also fast and the voice of reason.
GI Joe: Snake-Eyes, because he doesn’t tell stupid jokes and he’s a freaking ninja.
Danger Mouse: Penfold, the goofy, clumsy second banana to the hero. He is hilarous.
He-Man: Man-At-Arms, as one of only three who aren’t fooled by Prince Adam’s “secret,” he is our vote based on competence.
Ren and Stimpy: Powdered Toast Man. No reason needed.
Batman: The Animated Series: The Joker, because crazy is always better in a super villain.
X Men: Wolverine, because he’s in all of the best episodes including the first animated incarnation of the “Days of Future Past” storyline.
Animaniacs: The Brain, because we loved to hate him.
Beavis and Butthead: David Van Driessen, the “m’kay” hippie teacher.
Teen Titans: Raven. Don’t lie—if you were a girl she was your alter-ego.
Clone Wars: Tie between Asajj Ventress and Kit Fisto.
The Boondocks: Huey Freeman, the awesome narrator and deep thinker.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Frylock, because he takes care of business and he’s made of delicious french fries.
The Simpsons: Homer, because he’s added more words to our vocabulary than school has.
