Classic Cartoon Characters

Here’s our list of classic cartoon characters who are the most recognized throughout the world. These are the characters we grew up watching on TV. They are also from cartoons that make us laugh, giving them classic personalities, and ones we will always remember.

1. Bugs Bunny tops our list. “What’s up, doc?” Looney Tunes were first created as lead-ins to feature films. It was only later they became a Saturday morning staple. This bunny is still one of the best classic cartoon characters ever created.

2. Homer Simpson may not be the perfect father, but he had made us laugh for more than 20 seasons on Fox. This patriarch is not the father who knows best, but he certainly tries, and that’s what makes him unique. He’s a brilliant character.

3. Mickey Mouse is the oldest of them all. He represents Disney in all its forms and started life in the black and white Steamboat Willie. Mickey Mouse isn’t just a children’s character; he’s an icon.

4. Bart Simpson - Like father, like son. Sometimes he can be a mean character on The Simpsons, but he does have a heart. In fact, most of us knew a kid like Bart in school or in our neighborhood starting trouble or just to be funny.

5. Charlie Brown - He was introduced on TV in “It’s Christmas, Charlie Brown.” The comic strip stable became a holiday tradition for many kids around the world. The kid who never kicks the football, whose dog is more popular than he is, and who has a crush on the red-headed girl, steals our hearts every year with his character and charm.
