  2. B: Bugs Bunny
    93cb255e ee44 4902 9fc4 01e61ea84d39
    Don’t we all wish we were Bugs Bunny? Hilarious, almost never rattled, and getting the best of everyone he encounters: Warner Bros.’ signature cartoon character is one for the ages.
  3. C: Chip
    A86f136f ba37 4c2a bd2c 5f7153911ca3
    While Dale is the dimwitted, bucktoothed one, Chip is the ’munk with the brain, a quick thinker who can be a little bossy.
  4. D: Droopy
    152338c3 1ac6 4a0c 9014 e0e63252c3cf
    Surrounded by some of the wildest action MGM ever put on screen, Droopy is the calm in the eye of the storm, the counterpoint to frenetic cross-country dashes, gravity-defying reactions, and other outrageous sight gags.
  5. E: Eeyore, Winnie The Pooh
    C6a6b028 d4fd 4162 a6f8 a48357a46389
    Life isn’t always sunshine and honey pots, and everybody either knows an Eeyore, or is one themselves.
  6. F: Foghorn Leghorn
    C896c2fa b4fb 4e0d 80d5 f50f6e0be728
    A lazy, know-it-all chatterbox with a knack for talking his way out of trouble, Foghorn Leghorn built on the rudiments of his inspiration, Kenny Delmar’s blustery Dixie politician Senator Claghorn.
  7. G: Garfield
    799abb8b 1798 4c50 aa41 5d5b4262125b
    Naysayers like to shit on Garfield for his banal obsessions with lasagna and Mondays, but for kids reading the funny pages in the ’80s and ’90s, the fat orange tabby’s more basic qualities just made him easier to understand.
  8. Hobbes, Calvin And Hobbes
    973df2cc 6628 4482 97ce 63bc90878b73
    Whether Hobbes is a stuffed tiger or a real, man-eating beast, well, that’s for the reader to decide.
  9. Itchy, The Simpsons
    D5f97fc3 239e 406d 85c0 4e837fa5021d
    Itchy and Scratchy were conceived as an ultra-violent send-up of Tom and Jerry (among other cat-and-mouse duos), and they remain ultra-violent send-ups of Tom and Jerry, demonstrating that the one trait of their inspiration that they mimicked the best is their longevity.
  10. J: Julien, Madagascar
    2ec9d5e4 0b9b 4f65 b5e6 245ca3e7db4c
    From the moment that the Madagascar animals first encounter King Julien leading his many followers in the annoyingly catchy “I Like To Move It,” that royal lemur pretty much walked away with the entire movie series.
  11. K: Krazy Kat
    3d74f05f 9ca8 4efd b6d4 b04e59ae5458
    That a simpleminded cat and his unrequited love for an exasperated mouse can still resonate so strongly, more than a hundred years since its creation, is testament to the power of Herriman’s work.
  12. L: Lowly Worm, The Busy World Of Richard Scarry
    095478e4 dc69 40e4 bfd1 724833f3a8c2
    Lowly’s a great character, all nattily attired and up for anything. Scarry’s widow even said that Lowly was her late husband’s favorite creation.
  13. M: Mickey Mouse
    6a930950 5d04 4f92 a675 e669a3384b29
    Mickey Mouse is simply the Funny Animal that started it all.
  14. N: Norbert Foster Beaver, The Angry Beavers
    Df02b6d4 6f0f 4387 90f9 6b16d1c1958a
    Norbert’s humor is arguably second to his handsomeness—he’s the all-American blond with a great head of hair from Nickelodeon’s The Angry Beavers—but subtle suits him, allowing him to absorb some of his brother Daggett’s off-the-wall comedy.
  15. O: Opus The Penguin, Bloom County
    6eb19011 3c99 4898 ad26 fe5e1024717c
    Berkeley Breathed learned the lesson that so many other newspaper cartoonists haves grasped before him, that it’s easier to sell satire to the American people if it comes with a healthy side of cute.
  16. P: Plankton, SpongeBob SquarePants
    Ec59cff2 507b 4119 ac76 7ec7afe17083
    Given bellowing life by SpongeBob writer-actor Doug “Mr. Lawrence” Lawrence, Plankton is the show’s perennial comic MVP, an aquatic Napoleon who’s married to a computer and singularly obsessed with a rival restaurateurs’ secret recipe.
  17. Q: Quick Draw McGraw
    4e6147f4 cf5e 49cc b09e d32736610718
    He was a horse with a big heart and a small brain—as lovable as he was preposterous.
  18. R: Rocket J. Squirrel, The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show
    25781aa9 1477 4e47 b3f1 7e96b4c6547f
    A naive Boy Scout type in an aviator helmet, Rocky The Flying Squirrel represents all-American optimism in that most Cold War of cartoon series, The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.
  19. S: Snoopy, Peanuts
    A4ba37a3 7fca 4602 badb 9f6de1045f1a
    For the most part, Peanuts was narrowly focused on handful of moody kids in a small exurban neighborhood, but Snoopy’s adventures ranged from Petaluma to France—even if he never actually left the top of his doghouse.
  20. T: Tigger, Winnie The Pooh
    5ee7ffaa c865 46a8 b3d4 83c08c3f8273
    Winnie The Pooh’s boisterous friend, taken straight from A.A. Milne’s books, adds a jarring dose of energy to the Hundred Acre Wood.
  21. U: Underdog
    77a527c8 8cce 41db 8f1f c6389283ac63
    With his droopy uniform and oversized cape, Underdog is more comedic than imposing, especially considering how much collateral damage he generally incurs while attempting to save the day.
  22. V: Vlad Vladikoff, Horton Hears A Who!
    5919d7de 1353 4d37 a74c 7cef0b3ed5af
    n unnamed eagle in Dr. Seuss’ book, Vlad really comes into his own in the movie, offering Horton’s most exciting adventure sequences as the benevolent elephant (voiced by Jim Carrey) tries to save the Whoville speck from Vlad’s menace.
  23. W: Wile E. Coyote
    100cb1f8 fc2a 4622 a531 dfe4fd3327e5
    Among animals that make us laugh, Wile E. Coyote is a rare breed, indeed. His seemingly inexhaustible inventiveness (not to mention bottomless bank account) has been directed toward one end: chasing the Roadrunner.
  24. X: X-Bugs, Peter Porker
    00e30269 845a 43c5 ab3f 6b5a20426cce
    As with most of the Peter Porker characters, the X-Bugs weren’t much more than a simple joke, but they were an adorable one—especially for anyone who’s ever wanted to see Cyclops, Storm, and Nightcrawler with tiny antennae.
  25. Y: Yogi Bear
    55a3db42 41cb 46de 877f 9423e3dc4ae4
    He’s the kind of charming, good-natured character you’ d be happy to throw back some beers with, that is, if alcohol were permitted in Jellystone Park.
  26. Z: Zazu, The Lion King
    831f6f15 e14b 48f2 ba55 ce50cbde5331
    Timon and Pumbaa get the lion’s share of the attention, but Zazu is the wittiest among The Lion King’s cadre of comic relief.
