List Rules Vote up the cartoons that primarily feature birds, from ducks to penguins.

From Mickey Mouse to The Pink Panther, there's no shortage of colorful and unique animals that have been providing us with entertainment for decades. And no animated animals seem to take our imaginations take flight quite as much as cartoon birds - emphasis on the cartoon ducks and animated penguins. Whether they're funny or sarcastic, smart or prone to getting in trouble the animated birds of our favorite childhood and adulthood TV shows will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The series on this list, all of which feature birds, ducks, penguins, or other feathery winged creatures as the star, were with us during our Saturday mornings in front of the TV and our after-school homework procrastination sessions. So let's rank the top bird cartoons that kept us all company from best to worst.
