Top 56 Greatest Cartoon Characters (2017)

This is the list of greatest cartoon characters ever and we have not included any anime in it. We know that a list of best cartoon characters is incomplete without the anime characters. But we decided to not pick up Japanese anime.

90s was the best decade to grow up. There are many reasons to support this fact. First of all there is no denying in the fact that cartoons have huge impact of kids. Ever since animation entered in to the pop culture (in 1930s) it struck chords with kids globally irrespective of age, race, religion or region. You can say that the cute and funny cartoons introduced in later decades made a better child hood of millions of children around the world. So, when we talk about the best decades of cartoons then you have to agree that it was either 60s or 90s. 90s has an advantage over the 60s because by 1990s Television had become a common household accessory around the world, so cartoons were more accessible than ever. Secondly 90s kept a perfect balance of new age cartoons along with the classic cartoons. Thirdly it was the last decade before the social media and mobile tech took down the world. So you have to agree that 90s was the best decade for cartoon lovers.

Now coming back to the cartoon characters list, the characters listed here belong to animation work of all decades from 1930s to present. Here we have selected 56 most influential and most popular cartoon characters of all time:
