These classic, lovable characters from TV, movies, and our childhoods are all known for one thing: their unwanted sexual advances. These are the most sexual cartoon characters ever. And although you love them and there's nothing actually wrong with their existence, here's a list of the most lascivious cartoon characters of all time and why, in the real world, all of them would be in jail.
Who are the dirtiest, sensual cartoon characters ever? Everyone on this list from Pepe Le Pew, to Herbert from Family Guy to Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, doesn't really get the meaning of "no means no" and assumes that they're a sexy cartoon when, no matter what, consent must be given and received. Some of the dirtiest Pepé le Pew cartoon episodes feature him getting positively assaultive with the poor cats that cross his path, and he's not necessarily even the most deviant cartoon character of the bunch.
From oddly sexy cartoon animals to seductive animated "humans," these overly sexual cartoon characters can't help but make you cringe with their refusal to ask for consent.
Pepé Le Pew is basically that guy who has high self esteem BEFORE he starts drinking and then gets really handsy when he's drunk.
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 unrequited love 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.
Although he's not a "person," Pepe Le Pew is still one of the most popular members of the Looney Tunes crew, and 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 someone 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 make that person very uncomfortable.
What's the worst part? The fact this is his MO. 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."see more on Pepé Le Pew
Herbert from Family Guy is a predator. 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 sleep with little boys.
And this is absolutely hilarious in that it makes light of one of the most reprehensible things that people 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, 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 No. 2 in the most sexually aggressive (and not to mention reprehensible) cartoon characters of all time.

Betty 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 pleasure 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 sleep with 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 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.
"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!"
Cheryl Tunt is perhaps the only character on Archer more sexually aggressive than Archer himself. She enjoys several different kinds of kinky play and can get randomly turned on by just about everything.
Cheryl has even been known to tackle an FBI agent so that he will taze her, from which she gets much pleasure. She also thoroughly enjoys being choked. Throughout the series, one of her catchphrases is "Do me, do me, do me." If she doesn't get her way, she often forces herself on others until they relent.see more on Cheryl Tunt
