Anyway, thanks for asking...

I'm not sure I can limit it to just 3, but

Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)
Coach McGuirk (Home Movies)
Benjamin Katz (Dr. Katz)

Honorable mention: Bobby Hill (King of the Hill)


I'm also a big fan of a lot of the secondary and tertiary characters on The Simpsons: Milhouse, Lenny, Superintendent Chalmers, Moe, Lou the Cop...

By "cartoon" characters, do you mean animated cartoons, or comic strip cartoons?

Animated:
Wile E Coyote (Chuck Jones' version of Melville's Ahab)
Rocky & Bullwinkle
SpongeBob Squarepants (The anti-Wile E Coyote. SpongeBob is a Zen master.)

Comic strip:
Calvin and Hobbes
Dogbert
Rat (Pearls before Swine)

In no particular order

Post by Hexdump » Sat Mar 20, 2010 12:28 pm

1) Bugs Bunny
2) Yosemite Sam
3) PopEye

I was thinking of the road runner, but he(she?) had no depth to his character.
He was mostly, MEEP MEEP , then zoom.

Not to offend a prior poster, but I hate the smurfs !!!

I suppose it changes over time.

As a kid
- All of them! Though I took snowjob as my screen name from GiJoe

As a teen / immature adult
- been through the South Park / Family guy phase. If you like this type of humor, check out the show Archer on FX.

So right now, its Archer. :twisted:

"Gary the Rat," if anybody remembers him. The show was a flash in the pan, for just one season. Circa 2003. Character voiced by Kelsey Grammer. I had to go to Wikipedia to refresh my memory on some of the details. Also Spider-Man. In the late Sixties, on Saturday morning TV cartoons, I recall there was a Spider-Man.

Animation movies are getting better -- I really liked Ice Age and Madagascar. Looking forward to Ice Age 2.

SpongeBob is probably the cleverest cartoon series ever made. It is one of those that kids love, but which probably only adults truly understand. The characters are hilarious. The writers are geniuses.

Batman. (various)

2nd.

Space Battleship Yamato was fun stuff. I cant narrow down a character.

Oh Rocky and Bullwinkle have a special place in my heart :)

Oh and Bugsbunny...After all that ...number one just behind Yosemite Sam. ;)

Funny at my age. I catch myself watching the new Justice League cartoons. Incredible Hulk stuff and various other cartoons. Really interesting how they carry it on. I love the Planet Hulk stuff.

Awesome thread!
