Top 50 Most Popular Yellow Cartoon Characters

Top 50 Most Yellow Cartoon Characters


One of the first shows in the world to introduce an entirely yellow cast was The Simpsons, and their color was chosen to ensure that the characters looked different from the normal-colored cartoon characters that populated our television screens at the time.


Therefore, when one used to switch channels, it was easy to guess that The Simpsons is on, all thanks to the shade. Needless to mention, the use of yellow for cartoon characters went on to become extremely popular over time.


However, it is imperative to mention that yellow is important in color theory. In animation, the shade commonly expresses energy, activity, and joy, and, of course, produces a warming effect.


Some believe that it arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity, and generates muscle energy as well. So, today, we are going to discuss some of the most popular yellow cartoon characters of all time.


Whether it is their clothes, their hair, or their skin tone, the impact of yellow can certainly be noticed in them.




1. Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)


Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)


Homer Simpson might be chubby, lethargic, and often unaware of what is transpiring in the world, but his character sketch is one of the finest to have ever hit the world of animation.


Just like people in the real world, he also comes with his set of shortcomings. However, that does not negate the fact that he is extremely loving and caring toward the people he adores.


Not only has Homer’s catchphrase, ‘D’oh’, become a part of the American television culture but a lot many of the issues that he withstands throughout the series also go on to shed light on the socio-economic scenario of the United States of America; especially at the time of the show’s popularity.


The writers of ‘The Simpsons’ ensured that through his character sketch, a lot was elucidated about the traditional family norms, parenting in the 90s, and the idea of machismo. So, even if this beloved family patriarch is not the perfect husband or father, he is still pretty much a reflection of society at large.




2. SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants)


SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants)


Since the creator of the ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ series, Mr. Stephen Hillenberg, was a marine biologist himself, it isn’t surprising that his creation is a sea sponge; one that lives in a pineapple.


Both the series and the character connected with the younger generation of the ’90s in a big way and, therefore, turned into a massive success on television. Kiddish, playful, and extremely likable, SpongeBob is a one-of-a-kind character who loves to be in the company of his best pal Patrick.


One of his biggest dreams is to get himself a boating license. But, as luck would have it, SpongeBob is a careless driver who gets the jitters every single time he takes charge of a boatmobile.


That said, this popular yellow character can not only be sneaky and over-smart when he wants to be but he also has a great singing voice and is a good climber.


Oh, and how can we forget to mention that the gap between his teeth allows him to whistle flawlessly!




3. Pooh (The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh)


pooh (the new adventures of winnie the pooh)


Winnie-the-Pooh, who is also referred to as Pooh and Edward Bear, is a good-natured, yellow-furred, honey-loving bear, who first appeared in Disney’s 1966 short, Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree.


While a ton of animated shorts and films are known to have featured this beloved character, his popularity skyrocketed during the late 1980s when he headlined the much-liked television series, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.


The kind and friendly bear often comes across as both naive and absent-minded and has a demeanor that is childlike and innocent. Considered to be the true leader of his group, Pooh would never hurt anyone intentionally.


While it is true that he isn’t the smartest character to make it to our story today, it is also equally true that he has a lot of common sense and is someone who usually gives good advice to his friends.


He puts his large and kind heart to use when he wants to help his loved ones.




4. Pikachu (Pokémon)


pikachu (pokémon)


Pikachu is a small and cute mouse-like Pokémon and a fictional species in the Pokémon media franchise. It is almost entirely covered by yellow fur. Easily one of the most popular yellow cartoon characters of all time, it is widely considered to be the most popular and well-known Pokémon species, all thanks to its adorable yet heroic appearance in the Pokémon anime television series.


The companion of protagonist Ash Ketchum, Pikachu is a character that has been well-received by both critics and fans the world over. In fact, it is regarded as an icon of Japanese pop culture.


Pikachu is best known for being able to generate small surges of electrical energy in anger or to defend itself. That said, not many fans of the show and character are aware of the fact that it was designed around the concept of electricity.


Even their black-tipped, pointed ears and red circular pouches can be sparked with electricity. Also, it is imperative to mention that it is as loyal to Ash as one’s companion can be.



5. Bart Simpson (The Simpsons)


Bart Simpson (The Simpsons)


If his father, Homer Simpson, can come across as lazy to many, Bart, on the other hand, is the hyperactive rebel of the highest order. Not only is this Simpson kid mischievous but he is also proud of his wayward ways.


However, what makes Bart Simpson special is the fact that he believes in the power of unity, and ensures that those who wrong him are, sooner than later, wronged in return.


He is Homer’s only male child, but he alone is competent enough to set both his house and school on fire. What gives him a definitive edge over the others on this list is that he can provide his viewers with a good laugh even if they have had the toughest day possible.


Bart’s intelligence fluctuates throughout the series, but he is always seen ready to play pranks at Springfield Elementary, no matter what the day.



6. Charlie Brown (Peanuts)


charlie brown (peanuts)


Good ol’ Charlie Brown is loyal, determined, and someone who is often seen wearing a deep yellow shirt in animated TV specials. Not only is he a true friend and a dedicated baseball manager but he is also very responsible when it comes to taking care of his loving dog, Snoopy.


What makes Charlie come across as ideal and optimistic in this impassive world is the fact that he never gives up, even when he probably should. Needless to say, the kind young lad is patient by nature and wears his heart on his sleeve.


Often hailed as one of the finest cartoon characters to have ever been sketched, Brown is as smart as they come. However, like most of us in the real world, he also tends to overthink things from time to time.


Over time, this “lovable loser” has gone on to establish himself as one of the great American archetypes. Since he has had his own share of problems, he has turned out to be a bit anxious and underconfident.


While he may also have to deal with paralyzing fits of over-analysis, it is tough to deny that it only makes him more human and, therefore, popular.



7. Tweety (Looney Tunes)


Tweety (Looney Tunes)


Tweety, also known as Tweety Pie or Tweety Bird, is a yellow canary with a large head in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series. Contrary to popular belief, he has always been male.


Famous for his catchphrases, “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!” and “I did! I did taw/tee a puddy tat!”, he was initially depicted to be short-tempered. However, as his character progressed, he became very calmer.


Tweety might appear to be an innocent little bird, but he always gets the better of his rivals such as Hector the Bulldog and Sylvester the Tuxedo cat. Not only can he be seen hiding behind Granny to avoid the cat, but in the end, he always manages to humiliate him, unless he ends up humiliating himself trying to catch Tweety.


Granny is always overprotective of Tweety and, therefore, keeps him in a birdcage in her house so that Sylvester cannot reach him easily.



8. The Minions (The Despicable Me Franchise)


the minions (the despicable me franchise)


The adorable-looking minions are small, yellow, capsule-shaped creatures that have one or two eyes. They are the signature characters of the very successful Despicable Me series of animated motion pictures.


While they were initially used to inject a ton of comedy and energy into the movies, they ended up turning out to be quite the scene-stealers; so much so that they started serving as the official mascots for Illumination.


Described by The New York Times as “corporate icons”, they can be seen speaking in an incomprehensible language, Minions, in the films that feature them. Childish as they might be, they can also turn out to be quite smart when they have to be.


That being said, their absent-mindedness is what characterises them. But, it is not their only definitive character trait. We say so because these impulsive creatures with little self-control happen to be blessed with exceptional engineering skills.


Over time, we see them doing their best to design spaceships and playthings for Gru and his daughters.



9. Arnold (Hey Arnold!)


Arnold (Hey Arnold!)


‘Hey Arnold!’ is an animated comedy television series that traces the adventures and misadventures of a fourth-grader who lives with his grandparents. Arnold, who has yellow hair with a tiny blue hat in the middle, is blessed with a football-shaped head which somehow makes him come across as adorable.


However, what’s sad about him is that his parents seem to have gone missing for reasons unknown to the audience. That said, Arnold is someone who always tries to be there for his friends and helps them in dealing with their respective life issues; something that is both essential and educative for kids to see.


When the show premiered, the young adults managed to relate to the character. One reason for it was that living with one’s grandparents has turned out to be a trend of sorts in the contemporary world since most parents seem to be working in the 21st century.



10. Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


Lisa Simpson (The Simpsons)


The fact that Lisa Simpson is the third character from ‘The Simpsons’ to make it to our story is a testament to the show’s unquestionable greatness and creativity. The smartest of all characters on the show, Lisa is an intellectual of sorts.


Even though she comes across as reserved and a tad unapproachable, she has a warm heart that often allows her to be vulnerable. She almost always gets good grades and has a passion for things that require creativity and productivity.


In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that a lot many smart kids in the real world had a great time both watching and relating to her thoughtful character sketch.


Needless to say, Lisa Simpson is as gentle and original as they come. But, if someone ever tries to mess with her, she will have no issues putting them in their place.


So, do not be flabbergasted when you find her to be condescending once she loses her cool.



11. Johnny Bravo (Johnny Bravo)


Johnny Bravo (Johnny Bravo)


The next character on our list is someone who will make you want to comb and take good care of your hair. The overconfident and handsome Johnny Bravo, who is always seen with gelled-up blonde hair, is convinced that every woman in the world craves his attention.


Often seen sporting sunglasses, a black shirt, and blue jeans, he is blessed with a great body and barely lets go of an opportunity to flaunt it. Bravo might be superficial and brash, but he can make any woman believe that he is a sensible guy with no potential flaws whatsoever.


For that alone, he deserves to be a part of this story. Let’s just say that no matter how tough the circumstances are, if Johnny likes a girl, he can go to extreme lengths to ensure that she likes him back.


That being said, there is no denying that he wouldn’t be too proud of his intelligence or level of maturity.



12. Wolverine (X-Men: The Animated Series)


Wolverine (X-Men: The Animated Series)


One of the most cherished and famous characters to make it to our list, Wolverine is a mutant and a member of the X-Men, who is primarily known for sporting yellow spandex in the comics and animated television series.


While many would consider him to be traditionally good-looking, his appearance is elevated once he lets his claws do the talking. That said, what makes him far more different than any mortal could ever be is that his injuries heal faster than one could imagine.


A perfectly balanced combination of a mortal human and a superhuman, Wolverine is blessed to have intensified senses and an unmatched ability to heal his injured organs. Even though he is miraculously strong and has animal-like senses, he is not really a superhero in the conventional sense of the term.



13. Bubbles (The Powerpuff Girls)


Bubbles (The Powerpuff Girls)


Bubbles is one of the three main characters in the hit animated television series, ‘The Powerpuff Girls’. This bubbly, cute, and reserved girl has short, yellow hair that has two pigtails in a neat, curved fashion.


Best remembered for making most people around her happy, she can also come across as difficult when she wants to be. Not only can she converse in Japanese and Spanish but she can also be seen having a one-on-one conversation with animals.


However, one can never afford to take her for granted. We say so because she can very easily put her guard up and defend herself aggressively when she feels threatened.


Needless to say, Bubbles is a very relatable character without whose presence the show might have never been the same.



14. Pluto (The Chain Gang)


Pluto (The Chain Gang)


One of the biggest stars to have been created by The Walt Disney Company during its early days, Pluto is a yellow-orange color, medium-sized, short-haired dog with black ears. Popular for being Mickey Mouse’s pet, the mixed-breed dog made his screen debut as a bloodhound in the Mickey Mouse cartoon, The Chain Gang.


Together with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Goofy, Pluto is one of the “Sensational Six” in the Disney Universe. Even though he is shown to lack speech and the ability to walk upright, his popularity soared after he made an appearance as Mickey’s dog in 1931’s The Moose Hunt.



15. Marge Simpson (The Simpsons)


Marge Simpson (The Simpsons)


The homemaker and matriarch of the Simpson family, Marge is one of the five main characters in The Simpsons TV series. In fact, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that she is one of the most amazing female cartoon characters of all time.


She is the moralistic force in her family and often the only one in the house who makes sense. While the other members of the family, except Lisa, are mostly seen turning both the house and town upside down with their antics, it is Marge who tries to maintain order in the household.


Aside from her duties at home, Marge has also been seen flirting briefly with several men throughout the series. However, her love for Homer and her children knows no bounds.



16. Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)


Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)


Naruto Uzumaki, who is characterized by his stark yellow hair, is a shinobi of Konohagakure’s Uzumaki clan. While he became the jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails on the day of his birth itself, his fate caused him to be shunned by most of Konoha throughout his childhood.


The young ninja wants nothing more than to be recognized by his peers. Also, he dreams of becoming the Hokage, the leader of his village. Even though he is a tad unorthodox and boisterous, he can also tend to come across as naïve while finding it tough to understand situations.


That said, Naruto is shown to be working hard after having joined Team Kakashi to gain the village’s acknowledgment while chasing his dream of becoming Hokage.



17. Barney Rubble (The Flintstones)


Barney Rubble (The Flintstones)


Aside from being Fred Flintstone’s best mate, this yellow-haired caveman is also the husband of Betty Rubble and the adoptive father of Bamm-Bamm Rubble. While Barney’s corny humor managed to make him one of the most favorite characters of the show, his loyalty towards his friend truly made him stand apart from the rest.


The good-natured man may always come across as energetic and confident, but he usually ends up getting himself dragged into most of Fred’s lopsided schemes. Even though he tries to support Fred both willfully and out of compulsion, he doesn’t let go of an opportunity to give him a taste of his own medicine every now and then; especially when Fred is shown to have screwed up real bad.


In addition, Barney Rubble is also often seen laughing at his own jokes which makes him come across as endearing and goofy in equal measure.



18. Bumblebee (The Transformers)


Bumblebee (The Transformers)


Bumblebee is a fictional robot character appearing in the many continuities in the incredibly popular Transformers franchise. He may be one of the smallest and physically weakest Autobots, but his stature allows him to get his job done rather well.


While he is shown to be conscious of his size, it does not prevent him from befriending humans. And, even though he looks up to the other Autobots, especially Optimus Prime, what he doesn’t quite realize is that they look up to him.


He loves to watch earth cartoons on Saturdays, but, at the same time, is also someone who clings to his painful past, when Megatron ripped his voice box during his time in Cybertron.


Be that as it may, the ordeal only makes Bumblebee want to prove his worth to his team members.



19. Angelica Pickles (Rugrats)


Angelica Pickles (Rugrats)


One of the most significant characters on the popular animated show ‘Rugrats’, Angelica Pickles is known for her blonde hair, which is put into a pair of pigtails. Bossy as she might be, this little tyrant finds it tough to get herself dressed.


But, she never fails to get her way around things. Since her parents are barely ever around, she is mostly found in the proximity of her uncle and aunt. However, the absence of her folks does give her the license to bully kids and be as irritating as she can.


Like most people in the real world, Angelica seems to be searching for pure love; perhaps because she does not get enough of it from her parents. It is not surprising then she already has a few preschool crushes.


That said, she is also someone who likes to be the center of attention, and, unlike most of us, knows where she is headed in the world.



20. Beavis (Beavis and Butt-Head)


Beavis (Beavis and Butt-Head)


Beavis, aside from being one of the main protagonists of Beavis and Butt-Head, is also Butt-Head’s closest friend and confidant. Best recognized by his blonde hair which he wears in an oversized pompadour style, he is often seen playing second fiddle to his mate.


However, as the show progresses, Beavis turns out to be a dynamite of sorts and holds his own in the face of Butt-Head’s dominant persona. Also popular for his battleship bow chin, he can be seen having a fixated gaze on his face.


Timid as Beavis may be, he has his limits, and his dissatisfaction with Butt-Head does come to the fore when he is poked unnecessarily by him. In addition, he is often the one who comes across as both humorous and encouraging in the series.



21. Bob (Bob the Builder)


Bob (Bob the Builder)


Who can ever forget the beloved Bob in his traditional yellow hard hat? Arguably the most prominent protagonist on the well-known animated television series, ‘Bob the Builder’, he is as sane and sensible as they come.


Bob is a determined and magnanimous individual who is always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. He is assisted by his very capable and endearing team of talking work vehicles.


Since he is always committed to his work, he has no love lost for people who come up with silly excuses to not labor. Needless to mention, he does his best in ensuring that he finishes the work he and his team are assigned on time.


Therefore, not only does Bob give an important lesson in teamwork but his outstanding character sketch also strives to convey that nothing is impossible if one works hard to achieve their respective goals in life.



22. Pac-Man (Pac-Man)


Pac-Man (Pac-Man)


Formerly known as Puck Man in Japan, Pac-Man is the main protagonist of the Pac-Man series. This yellow character is the husband of Ms. Pac-Man and the father of Baby Pac-Man and Jr. Pac-Man, respectively.


Since his first appearance in 1980, Pac-Man has gone on to become an iconic video game character and is one of the most recognizable fictional characters in the world.


The show, which may not be as popular as the game today, chronicles the adventures of the character and his family. The series is set in Pac-Land, where everything appears to be spherical or round to match the character concept of Pac-Man.


Whenever the titular character comes face to face with an evil entity, he goes on to swallow the ‘power pellets’ which allow him to eat the ghost monsters that turn purple.



23. Dennis Mitchell (Dennis the Menace)


Dennis Mitchell (Dennis the Menace)


Yet another popular cartoon character who is recognized for his stark yellow hair is the main protagonist of the animated series, Dennis the Menace, which premiered in the second half of the 1980s.


Dennis Mitchell, who is also characterized by his freckles, is a precocious but lovable six-and-a-half-year-old boy who has a penchant for mischief. His parents are often left with no other option than to explain his antics to others.


Be that as it may, the young and enthusiastic Dennis is a highly inquisitive lad who has his heart in the right place; something that becomes apparent when he is seen taking kittens and puppies home to feed them.


Even though he loves to pick fights with boys his age, one can’t negate the fact that he’s often more than willing to help people around him.



24. Big Bird (Sesame Street)


Big Bird (Sesame Street)


The second popular yellow character from Sesame Street to make it to our story is the bright Big Bird. The 8’2″ bird has entertained millions of preschool children and their parents with his wide-eyed wondering at the world ever since he was first seen on Sesame Street; a show that premiered in 1969.


The world-famous bird, who has been a central character in the program, is unlike any other bird you may have read about or chanced upon. Big Bird is pretty talented as he can roller skate, ice skate, dance, sing, write poetry, draw, and even ride a unicycle.



25. CatDog (CatDog)


CatDog (CatDog)


Cat and Dog, better known by their collective nickname CatDog, are the titular main protagonists of Nickelodeon’s animated series of the same name. They are a conjoined cat and dog sibling with no tail or legs.

26. Jake the Dog (Adventure Time)


Jake the Dog (Adventure Time)

He is a dog/shape-shifter hybrid, referred to by others as a “magical dog.” Finn’s constant companion, best friend, and adoptive brother, he is blessed with a unique set of abilities called Stretchy Powers; something that allows him to manipulate the shape and size of his body.


Needless to mention, he can be seen using his ability to his advantage on innumerable occasions throughout his and Finn’s adventures. It is inferred that Jake was granted his powers while he was a puppy courtesy of his biological relationship with a shape-shifting creature.



27. Flounder (The Little Mermaid)


Flounder (The Little Mermaid)


One of the central characters in Disney’s acclaimed 1989 animated feature film, The Little Mermaid, Flounder is a tropical yellow fish with teal stripes. He is Ariel’s best friend, who happens to come from a large family, with numerous siblings.


While his exact age is not known, it is assumed that he must be younger than his mate. Even though his name implies otherwise, Flounder is not always seen floundering.


Also, he is incredibly loyal to Ariel and is blessed with an inherent protective nature. It is imperative to mention that he can even be seen getting back at those who chastise Ariel for her adventurous spirit.



28. Bert (Sesame Street)


Bert (Sesame Street)


Those who have seen Sesame Street would be more than familiar with Ernie and his best pal and roommate, Bert. The pair shares a basement apartment at 123 Sesame Street.


While Ernie is shown to be extroverted, Bert comes across as a serious and studious individual who is often seen trying to make sense of his friend’s actions. Bert enjoys reading, collecting paper clips and bottle caps, eating oatmeal, and studying pigeons.


Also known for moving his unibrow up and down, Bert is funny and nice and, yet, as grumpy as one can be.



29. Lumiere (Beauty and the Beast)


Lumiere (Beauty and the Beast)


One of the significant supporting characters in Disney’s 1991 animated feature film Beauty and the Beast, Lumiere is one of the servants in a French castle ruled by a formerly spoiled, selfish, and unkind prince.


He may be charismatic and rebellious, but he was turned into a candelabra by the Enchantress’ curse. Also, he is one of the few inhabitants of the castle who can actually speak with an exaggerated French accent.


A showman of sorts, Lumiere is admired by his peers and is, therefore, a prominent member of the prince’s unofficial council of confidants. Even though he can be seen disobeying the firm rules of his antisocial master, he is incredibly hospitable and likable.



30. Joy (Inside Out)


Joy (Inside Out)


One of the main protagonists of the animated feature film Inside Out, Joy is one of the five emotions inside the mind of Riley Andersen. As her name suggests, she always strives to remain joyful, no matter what the circumstances.


Thankfully for Riley, Joy happens to be the leader of her emotions. The very essence of perkiness, she values nothing more than Riley’s happiness. In fact, she can be seen trying her best to not let her other emotions get the better of her.


Through Riley, Joy teaches us to look at the brighter side of things, which perhaps explains why she is the oldest and most controlling of all emotions.



31. Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon)


Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon)


Usagi Tsukino, the Sailor Guardian of love and justice, is the reincarnation of Princess Serenity, and the titular character of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon manga.

She has porcelain skin and a slim figure and can usually be seen wearing a blue middle-school sailor uniform. Usagi was depicted as a cheerful but immature girl at the beginning of the program.


In fact, she was even seen crying a bit too often when overtaken with emotion. Since she possesses a pure heart, she tries to find the good in her enemies even when others are not able to see it.



32. John Smith (Pocahontas)


John Smith (Pocahontas)


John Smith is the deuteragonist of Disney’s animated feature film, Pocahontas. Even though his skin color and costume aren’t yellow, we are adding him to our list courtesy of his wavy blonde hair.

33. Mandy (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)


Mandy (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)


Mandy is one of the three main protagonists of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy series, who can also be seen acting as an antagonist in several episodes. She is not really a girl you’d like to hang out with.


We say so because she is shown to be a vile individual who barely ever smiles. Not only that but she also treats everyone around her with contempt. Disliked as she may be, Mandy, who has been voiced by Grey DeLisle, is also very intelligent.


However, she views herself as superior to all other characters in the show, and, believe it or not, that includes her parents as well.



34. Arthur Timothy Read (Arthur)


Arthur Timothy Read (Arthur)


Arthur Timothy Read is the eponymous protagonist of the series, who is best recognized by his yellow shirt. He is the oldest child and only son of David and Jane Read, and the brother of D. W. and Kate.

35. Wubbzy (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!)


Wubbzy (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!)


Let’s now welcome the titular yellow character of the show ‘Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!’, who wants nothing more than to play all the time.

However, whenever he comes face to face with trouble, he makes sure to rely on help and advice from his friends. Wubbzy, whose favorite phrase is “Wow!”, lives in the town of Wuzzleburg.


One can catch him having all the fun in the world with his best friends, Widget, Walden, and Daizy.

That being said, T. C. does go on to prove his loyalty to the gang members by coming to their aid when they need him.



37. Fluttershy (My Little Pony Friendship is Magic)


Fluttershy (My Little Pony Friendship is Magic)


Make way for Fluttershy – a female Pegasus pony and one of the main characters of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She lives in a small cottage near the Everfree Forest and is best known for taking good care of animals.

One of the most prominent characters in the animated sitcom American Dad!, Francine is the wife of Stan Smith and the mother of Hayley Smith and Steve Smith. Not much is known about her life apart from the fact that her parents gave her up to be in first class on a plane.


Needless to mention, she was brought up in an orphanage. Francine, who has a dark side to her personality, is a stereotypical housewife who seems to be quite comfortable with her position in life.


However, she can also turn out to be obsessive from time to time; something that even goes on to threaten her loved ones.



40. Mighty Mouse (Mighty Mouse Playhouse)


Mighty Mouse (Mighty Mouse Playhouse)


This animated superhero mouse character was created by the Terrytoons studio for 20th Century Fox. Originally named Super Mouse, he was conceptualized as a parody of Superman and made his debut screen appearance in 1942 in a theatrical animated short, titled The Mouse of Tomorrow.

Sally Brown (Peanuts)


A major female character in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz, Sally is the younger sister of Charlie Brown and was introduced to the strip in 1959. Since it is Charlie who is seen headlining the programs, we get to see Sally through his eyes initially.


We discover that his beloved little sister may be undependable and rambunctious, but she is a kid who needs protection and guidance at all times. As she grows into her own, Sally becomes a kind girl who is both creative and sappy in equal measure.


That said, the often cheerful girl does share her brother’s tendencies to procrastinate.



42. Leopold “Butters” Stotch (South Park)


Leopold "Butters" Stotch (South Park)


Loosely based on Eric Stough, an animation director/producer that works on the show, Butters Stotch is a major character in the incredibly popular and acclaimed adult animated sitcom, South Park.


He is a fourth-grader in South Park Elementary, whose role began to increase after he replaced Kenny during his temporary removal in Season Six. This not only allowed Butters to gain more screen time but also compelled the makers to develop his character further.


Stotch is not only the most “innocent child” in the group but he is also Cartman’s most exploited and possibly best companion.



43. Caillou (Caillou)


Caillou (Caillou)


Caillou is a 4-year-old boy who serves as the main protagonist of the TV series and books of the same title. He has been presented as an inquisitive young lad who enjoys exploring the world around him.

However, his tantrums have been a source of criticism.
