He's also a con artist of sorts and is occasionally underhanded at times. Wimpy loves eating hamburgers and is mostly seen with one in his hand but is a miser to pay for them, which is why he gets others to pay for them, a recurring joke that’s seen often, in the series.

He is considered the second antagonist on the show, after the three cockroaches. Bob is huge, extremely strong, and fierce.
Even though he tries to live his life peacefully, the next-door racket makes it difficult for him to do so, especially because the racket often leads to severe damage to his property to which he responds by pummeling Oggy or Bob (his other neighbor and friend of Oggy’s who helps him in his cockroach catching endeavors).
In the initial episodes, Bob was seen to have a bendy tail which eventually turns into a stub. Bob often teams up with the three cockroaches against Oggy, although there have been instances where he's turned enemy to both.

When he was a baby, Obelix had fallen into a cauldron of Gauls’ magic potion which caused him to become the only Gaul in Asterix’s village existing in a permanent state of superhuman powers.

27. Mrs. Poppy Puff (Spongebob Squarepants)

However, she does show him her soft side as well, often getting worried for him (albeit it's mostly out of fear or worries about him causing some form of trouble later).
She's the primary reason why Spongebob doesn't have a driver's license in the first place. Having said that, she does have a pre-existing criminal record against her, much before she met Spongebob, which is why it is safe to say she's a part-time antagonist as well!

His difficulty with socializing often tends to get clumsy, such as when it comes to personal space, making odd decisions, and getting angry over things that seem quite harmless.
Teddy loves talking about carpentry and can go on and on about it, to the extent of boring the person in front of him.

22. Chief Wiggum (The Simpsons)

He’s part Irish, and father to Ralph Wiggum. He’s often seen taking bribes and being corrupt, although that hasn’t led him to lose his job, in all probability because of a friendship he shares with Mayor Quimby.

Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, better known as The Penguin was an antagonist, and mafia boss is known for his bad habits and love for fine arts in the television series, Batman the Animated Series.
He is short, wobbly with a bird-like nose, and a monocle, and uses an umbrella as his weapon, most of the time.
It was his odd appearance that had led him to be an outcast from his rich family, a rejection he took to heart and turned into a violent criminal thereafter.
He employs two street ruffians; Jay and Raven to help him with his dealings. He’s extremely well-educated and clever and wishes to be sophisticated enough to be respected and treated as an equal among the elites of Gotham City.
He was one of Batman's greatest foes during his prime and unlike most of the other antagonists and enemies of Batman, he was sane.
This is also why he'd be sent to Stonegate Penitentiary when found guilty of a crime instead of Arkham Asylum where all the other 'fellow rogues' were sent for treatment.
20. Oggy (Oggy and the Cockroaches)
Oggy from Oggy and the Cockroaches is one of the protagonists of the series. He is a consistent victim at the hands of the cockroaches; Joey, Marky, and Dee Dee.

Other than that, he’s always trying to chase the cockroaches all around the house because they keep getting on his nerves.
However, despite being so lazy, he is also quite diplomatic and easy-natured, often showing his kind side towards other animals.
Even though he’s been shown to have quite a few phobias in several episodes throughout the series, they don’t remain consistent.
While he enjoys being calm and relaxed in his world, it is only with the cockroaches and Bob (the dog cop in the series and a part of our list) that he has a hard time staying himself.
19. Uncle Fester (Addams Family)
Uncle Fester is one of the protagonists from the much-loved fictional family, Addams Family, in the show of the same name by Hanna-Barbera.

He's often seen suffering from severe bouts of headache which can only be relieved by putting his into a screw press and tightening it to levels that normal people simply wouldn't be able to withstand.
Also, weirdly, he enjoys self-inflicted injury quite a bit (as is evident from the screw press scenario given above!).
18. Pumbaa (Timon and Pumbaa)
Pumbaa is one of the main characters in the animated television series made by the Walt Disney Company, Timon and Pumbaa.
He is a huge gluttonous warthog whose best friend is Timon, a wisecracking meerkat. The series is about the constant adventures that the two friends keep embarking on.

In the initial episodes (before meeting Timon), Pumbaa claims that he is a loner. Flashback scenes show that as a young warthog, he had problems with gas, due to which all other animals would avoid him.
This was also one of the causes for which Pumbaa was embarrassed about socializing.
