List Rules Vote up the all-time best animated characters ever on TV shows.

Throughout the annals of TV history, cartoon stars have shone brightly, bringing joy to children and adults alike. With so many classics out there, from Looney Tunes to Hanna-Barbera to the likes of The Simpsons, South Park, Spongebob, and even He-Man, it seems impossible to create a definitive list of the greatest cartoon characters on TV. Yet it must be done. We owe it to these animated characters to compile them, vote, rerank, debate, and scream at our screens in agony at the tyranny of democracy. Have your say and support your favorite cartoon TV character by voting them up. And remember, just because a character is on a great show doesn't mean that character, alone, is one of the greatest of all time.
