Favorite Cartoon Characters?

I stopped by Shakespeare's Sister last night and, among other interesting things, I found this little gem. It was so much fun, I decided to do it here.

Who/what was your favorite cartoon characters when you were growing up?

Here are the ones I cited at Shakes':

Foghorn Leghorn

Ever the Southern gentleman, swooned over by all the hens in the henhouse, he's got his sights set on the widow, Miss Prissy. I especially loved his interactions with Miss Prissy's son, Egghead, Jr.

Mighty Mouse

Toon land's answer to Superman. This mouse could do anything and was always available to "save the day!" What a mouse!

And, last but not least...

Underdog!

What can I say. I had an alcoholic father so the bumbling, well-meaning "super-hero" was right up my alley. Besides, Polly was cute.

I also admit to being a closet Scooby-Doo fan. I liked Velma. I wonder why?...

I totally identify with Wile E. Coyote having suffered my own genius and determination. The look on his face when he's suspended in mid-air after the edge of the cliff breaks away... yeah. Pepe LePew has a special place in my heart, though.

Underdog. And I can still sing the theme song to the Banana Splits.

Foghorn Leghorn is a favorite of mine, too. Velma did nothing for me. What's that say about me?

Hiya, Cher! I miss you. Are you under a rock? Gonna come out and play soon?

Oh, Bimbo! I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to bring such painful memories to mind! I has a soft spot for Pepe, as well. What a charmer. Then again, I had thing for Pepe's role model, Maurice Chevalier!

BG! Another Underdog fan! He just rocked, with his unassuming lil' ol' ways!

Can't say as I recall much about the Banana Splits. I think that was after the start of my "druggie phase." I don't remember too much about the 70's / early 80's as a result.

{{{{Mocha, my love!}}}} How lovely you are, my Bootylicious friend!

What Velma says about you is that you're straight as that proverbial fucking arrow, damn it!

Great to see you, Mocha! I'm taking the first, cautious steps out into the light. ::dons shades:: "Nope, still too bright!" ::links back under rock::

I always had a thing for the martian on Bugs Bunny.

HPS: That's rather kinky on a number of levels, don't you think?

Good to see you!

Aw, I've gone through my whole life feeling a little bit like a space alien . . ;-)
