Cartoon characters are part of everyone’s childhood. They made us laugh, they enlarged our knowledge of the world and they allowed us to escape reality for some magical hours. Even now, when we became responsible adults, with numerous worries and chores, we stop for a while and join our children in the colourful world of animation. If you miss all those great cartoons that you used to love as a child, here is a chance to remember them. Today, we list some of the cool cartoon characters of all time:

1.  Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse was created in 1928 by the Walt Disney Company. Voiced by Walt Disney himself, he quickly became Disney’s symbol and one of the most beloved cartoon characters in the world. He is also the only cartoon character  in the world to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mickey did not become boring or old-fashioned even though he is almost 100 years old. Being extraordinary popular among children, he was often refreshed or reinvented and today, Mickey Mouse is as popular as he was 50 years ago. The main character of Disney Channel’s Disney Junior Series ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’, he is  loved by countless small children, who learn to say ‘Mickey’ as soon as they can walk properly.

2.  Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson was created in 1987 by Matt Groening. The first seasons of the Simpsons (a TV series that run for 20 seasons, the longest running cartoon series of all time), were centred on Bart, but as it started to focus on the patriarch of the family, this show became even more popular than before. The type of father that tries to be a fountain of wisdom for his family, he has many famous quotes, such as: ‘Marge, it takes two to lie. One to lie and one to listen’, ‘Kids, you tried your best, and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try’, or ‘To alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.’

3.  Fred Flintstone

Fred Flintstone is the husband of Wilma and the father of cute little Pebbles. Created by Hanna and Barbera, this character is a parody of the typical husband. Fred Flintstone and his best friend, the equally funny Barney Rubble, represent one of the greatest cartoon pairs of all times. We all grew up with them, laughing at their silly adventures that did not go beyond the usual escapades of a married man. However, the Flintstone Family was and still is, a cartoon of great success both among children and among their parents.

4. Inspector Gadget

This funny guy is a cyborg policeman who seems to be equipped with an endless amount of gadgets that should help him fight crime. Despite so many clever devices, he is clumsy and incompetent, in the manner of the famous inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther. Joining the team of crime fighters are his genius niece and his brainy dog. In 1999, the animation was transposed into a Disney film starring Matthew Broderick. The movie did not have the same success as the animation. In 2011, a comic book based on the original 1983 series is to be released in the U.S.

5. Eric Cartman

Intended for adult audiences, South Park became a great hit in a very short period of time and has been running for over a decade. One of the main characters of this animated series, Cartman is usually portrayed in opposition to his friends. He can be attributed many characteristics, none of which may be considered positive. Thus, he is immature, spoiled, lazy, as well as racist, sexist, sociopathic and narcissist, so as to name but a few of his ‘qualities’.

6. Bugs Bunny

Bugs Bunny is 71 years old. This classical Looney Tunes character is one of the most famous in the world. He is full of personality and likes to play tricks to his equally renowned opponents. Funny to watch and entertaining, Bugs Bunny will probably be around another 70 year from now and the next generations will  enjoy watching him as we did and still do. His favourite expression, ‘what’s up doc’ is as timeless as he is.
