- 1Pepe Le Pew is basically that guy who has high self esteem BEFORE he starts drinking and then gets really handsy when he's drunk. I mean, c'mon, look at this.
Chuck Jones, creator of Pepe Le Pew, modeled the character after his friend Tedd Pierce who considered himself a ladies man and, for some reason, always assumed that his sexual exploits were requited.
The premise of each and every one of Pepe Le Pew's cartoons (although hilarious) is that the poor guy has perpetual emotional blue balls throughout his entire Skunk life. There are no other skunks around (which brings me to the conclusion that he's probably just not going to the right places), so whenever he sees someone that he thinks is a skunk (most often a black cat who accidentally gets white paint on them via walking under a fence or car that has just been painted white), he just up and goes for it.
Now, not being a "person", Pepe Le Pew gets the leeway of "alright, he's an animal and a male animal that sees a female animal assumes that they want to procreate". But as one of the most popular members of the Looney Tunes crew, he teaches children that no doesn't mean no, but that no means "you should just try harder."
Check out this clip (embedded) that shows Mr. Le Pew forcing himself on a poor, unsuspecting cat. Imagine if you were him, and instead of a weird, painted cat that can't talk (but for some reason you can), it was a girl at a bar.
If you started kissing someone's arm, holding them against their will while they try and get away and professed your delusional, undying love for them, you would most likely get arrested.
This is the point I'm trying to make. These women (cats) don't want to procreate, they just want to walk around and say "Le" all the time.
What's the worst part? The fact THIS IS HIS M.O. He will never change. This is what he's KNOWN for: taking unwilling women and harassing them to the point of either violence, moving away or misery and then happily, passively moving onto the next when the current one is "used up".
A full-length Pepe Le Pew cartoon where he makes unwated sexual advances towards an accidentally-painted cat... again.
- 2Herbert from Family Guy is a pedophile. A homosexual one. One that takes advantage of young boys, likes to smell their underwear, write songs about young boys and basically lives for the next sexual thrill. Every single scene he's ever been in on Family Guy has a common punchline theme: Herbert wants to bang little boys.
And this is absolutely hilarious in that it makes light of one of the most reprehensible things that people (Christian Priests) do on a regular basis, as well as lampoons some of the most uncomfortable moments that a person can have, as well as some of the worst thoughts that the worst people on Earth can think.
Herbert is a staple of cartoon comedy and one of the greatest characters cartoons have ever invented... but the implication that he, at SOME point, has gotten away with what he does (why else would he so persistently keep trying), is absolutely disgusting and puts him in at #2 in the most sexually aggressive (and not to mention reprehensible) cartoon characters of all time.
Enjoy this hilarious compilation of his funniest, most uncomfortable and "that's funny cause it's wrong" moments.
Every Betty Boop Villain EverBetty Boop, a character who most people can find at products at stores like Claire's and Hot Topic, yet most people have never seen an episode of her show, was the first animated sex symbol of all time. Needless to say (as this should probably be, unfortunately, implied), almost every single episode of her show involved some powerful man trapping her, tying her up, then trying to bang her.
Random dudes from whatever institution the episode was about (in this case, The Circus!) would come and save her in the end, otherwise she'd be an emotional wreck and the cartoon would've taken a crazier, MUCH darker path.
Here's a synopsis of the infamous episode where someone tries to take away her virginity called "Boop-Boop-A-Doop", which kind of sums up why every one of her villains was basically a potential rapist. That's right. The "R" word again:
"In Boop-Oop-A-Doop , Betty is a highwire performer in a circus. The villainous Ringmaster lusts for Betty as he watches her from below, singing "Do Something," a song previously performed by Helen Kane. As Betty returns to her tent, the Ringmaster follows her inside and sensually massages her legs, surrounds her and threatens her job if she doesn't submit.
This is perhaps one of the earliest portrayals of sexual harassment on the screen, and was very daring at a time when such subject matter was considered taboo.
Betty begs the Ringmaster to cease his advances, as she sings "Don't Take My Boop-Oop-A-Doop Away." Koko the Clown is outside of the tent, practicing his juggling and hears the struggle from inside the tent. He leaps in to save Betty's virtue, struggling with the Ringmaster who loads him into a cannon, firing it, thinking that he has sent the hero away, laughing with self-satisfaction. But Koko is hiding inside the cannon, and strikes the Ringmaster out cold with a mallet, returning with "the last laugh." When Koko expresses concern about Betty's welfare, she answers in song, "No, he couldn't take my boop-oop-a-doop away!"
- 4The Big Bad Wolf from these cartoons where he's whistling at an over-sexed "Take THIS, I did it first, Jessica Rabbit" Red Hot Riding Hood cartoon in shorts that Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies used to do, is probably one of the most over sexually aggressive cartoons on the planet.
He basically represents a visceral part of every man (or hey, even woman) that acts purely on sexual impulse. He does the Le Pew-esque corn-on-the-cob kiss on the arm, and when she dances he does something that has even coined an entire term in American society... The Wolf Whistle.
Applied to many-a-woman passing a construction site, walking down the street while you're in a car during traffic or at any local strip joint (check your local Yelp listings), The Wolf Whistle is basically an eyes-bulging, loud and insanely inappropriate (unless you're in a strip club, check your local CitySearch listings) display of your sexual desire for a woman via yells that would be loud enough to wake an entire city block, or that sound much like... a wolf.
Check out the video for the first and most glaring example of this character being one of the most sexually aggressive (in that all he wants to do is bang some girl whose grandma he ate) cartoon characters of all time.
- 5Zapp Brannigan is a quintessential douchebag. He's the type of guy that plays the "numbers" game, gets women left and right, has about 12 different STDs (that in cartoon-land cancel each other out, Mr. Burns style), and never stops trying for that one girl that said no that becomes his "true love" (who he'll forget about the moment she says yes... easily.)
Throughout the entire series of F*turama (to this day, even), Zapp Brannigan makes sexual advances towards the gorgeous, yet tough and opinionated Leela (who happens to have one eye and is also voiced by Peggy of Married with Children fame's Katy Seagal). He never stops and he always assumes that the love is requited because he's just that delusional of a douchebag.
He makes so many sexual advances that ALMOST work (and one or two that do) that he's really one of the greatest sexual predators in mainstream cartoon history. Not only does he do what he does, but he makes it work in the process... this is kind of a terrible thing ideologically, but as far as the progression of the character goes, he needs it to love.
Here's an example (embedded) of Zapp Brannigan coming onto Leela using "facts".
