Top 5 Best Cartoon Characters of All Time

1. Homer J. Simpson (The Simpsons)
Created: 1987
Creator: Matt Groening
Voice: Dan Castellaneta
The first two seasons of The Simpsons were focused on Bart, but as it became Homer centric, the show became something truly special. He’s the everyman at our laziest, hungriest, dumbest and drunkest. Yet thanks to good heart buried under all those doughnuts, he’s also the hero that repeatedly saves the day or at least restores everything to a status quo which has endured for two decades and more than 450 episodes.
2. Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes)
Created: 1938
Creator: Tex Avery
Voice: Mel Blanc

The coolest cat in cartoon history is a rabbit or a hare. That slight taxonomic difference was never addressed during his many antics, but he held an enviable insouciance through them all, whether being hunted with Elmer Fudd’s shotgun, Yosemite Sam’s pistols or Marvin Martian’s ACME Disintegration Pistol. His only flaw: a poor sense of direction (especially when tunneling through New Mexico).

3. Tom and Jerry
Created: 1940

Creators: William Hanna and Joseph Barbera
Silent film mostly went away with the advent of the talkies, but Hanna and Barbera’s Tom and Jerry didn’t need dialogue to enrapture generations of children. The 114 shorts were created between 1940 and 1958, but they feel like they belonged to my childhood in the late ‘70s, just like they’ll feel like a part of my kids’ childhood when they grow up.

4. Mickey Mouse
Created: 1928

Creator: Walt Disney

Voice: Walt Disney

It’s easy to lose sight of the cartoon character Mickey in the shadow of the mascot for the Disney Empire. There might not be a Disney empire but for the charms of an enthusiastic adventurous mouse.
5. Wile E. Coyote (Looney Tunes)
Created: 1948

Creator: Chuck Jones

Voice: Mel Blanc

Charlie Brown will never kick his football, and Wile E. will never catch the Roadrunner. These are among the first truths learned by any kid in America, even as they’re exposed the beauties of the Western desert. His clever plans and box of oft-malfunctioning ACME tricks resulted in our favorite coyote falling off cliffs, getting crushed by stones, and at the center of crater-inducing explosions; no cartoon character suffered more for our entertainment.
