Decent Cartoons

Talking about classic cartoons is always a delightful trip down memory lane. Remember those days after school and on weekends watching Woody Woodpecker, Bugs Bunny, The Jetsons or The Flintstones?

About.com recently put together a list of the Top 50 Cartoon Characters. It’s a good read with pictures and short explanations of the ranking. The top 10 are Bugs Bunny, Homer Simpson, Mickey Mouse, Bart Simpson, Charlie Brown, Fred Flintstone, The Grinch, Popeye, Wile E. Coyote, and Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Pretty decent list, but here are some that in my opinion are a little out-of-place.

Most Overrated

No 7. The Grinch: Iconic, yes, but to make the top 10, you should have more than just one seasonal special.

No. 16 Mr. Magoo: Classic, yes, but not mainstream enough to be ahead of Woody Woodpecker (No. 38), Tweety Bird and Sylvester (No. 24), etc.

No. 22 Gumby: Not a cartoon. Enough said.

Most Underrated

No. 15 Scooby-Doo and Shagy: These guys have to be in the top 10. Period.

No. 34 Yogi Bear: So being smarter than the average bear only gets you to No. 34. The 10-15 range sounds more suiting.

No. 39 Tom and Jerry: When a cartoon has been around in one format or the other since the 1940s, the top 10 should be automatic.
