View Full Version : The most hilarious cartoon character ever!!

Who would this be? My candidate is "Droopy" from the MGM cartoons; Donald Duck would be a close second. :)

Tie between Homer Simpson and The Brain.
According to Pliny

The frog in Chuck Jone's "One Froggy Evening" before WB made him their corporate whore.
Also, there were some cartoons with some mice named Hubie and Bertie. They were always F-ing up the mind of a cat named Claude. The best one was where they convinced him he was dead and were trying to help him get to cat-heaven.

Who was "The Brain"? I don't see many cartoons these days; the only character I remember with that name was from a comic book in the late 50s, drawn by the same artists who did the Archie comics then.
I saw the cartoon "One Froggy Evening" when it played in the 50s, in the theaters. I never did get the point about a frog that would sing and dance only when the ex-construction worker was present--especially when telling the truth got the man thrown into a mental institution. I guess you have to be sadistic to enjoy that cartoon. :(

Either that or have an appreciation for the human condition.

I don't have a clue about this. Please elaborate.

Tie: Homer Simpson, and Stewie from "Family Guy".
Those Hubie and Bertie cartoons Papabear mentions were absolute classics. My favorite was when they were trying to drive the cat insane, they nailed the furniture on the ceiling, did shit to it while it was asleep (too complex to describe), stuff like that.
dougie_monty: I'm pretty sure what Gilligan meant was The Brain from "Pinky & The Brain."
I love that show. :)

Evildoers, you face ... The Tick!
08-21-1999, 07:01 PM
Ya know, I really miss Earthworm Jim and Freakazoid. Why did the Kids' WB do away with those guys?
08-21-1999, 07:26 PM
Classic toons : Goofy ... no contest.
Modern toons : Johnny Bravo.

I had forgotten the TICK "M u s t defy the laws of phy sics."
heckle and jeckle. hubie and bertie are funny, indutiably. brain is funny but as a character pinky is funnier.
Boomhauer is in second place but for sheer hilarity it's gotta be daffy duck (Bugs was good before he saned up and daffy took his place) Woo woo! Woo woo woo! woo woo!

I'm a Daffy (Duck) Man!
I like Homer, I like Duckman, I like Lupo the Butcher. But the all-time most hilarious character is that Oscar-winning rabbit, Bugs Bunny.
No contest: Zippy The Pinhead.
I know, he is a comic strip character; technically not a cartoon character. But he is the funniest drawn personality, moving or nonmoving.
08-21-1999, 11:56 PM
For cartoons, I dig Homer Simpson and Stewie too. For comics, I love Milkman Dan, although I doubt many other people know who he is.
I was going to vote Freakazoid, until I read the posts voting for the Tick (I also had forgotten about him), so I have a tie between those two.

Daffy Duck, Homer Simpson, The Tick ("You can't fight evil with a macaroni duck" "We'll just see about that!"), Rocko had his moments.
08-22-1999, 11:33 AM
"Killer" (or as his mom would say "Kee-lah"), the vulture in the Bugs Bunny cartoons aways made me piss my pants.
"I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee.
Won't my momma be so pround of me..."
Now that's funny.
08-22-1999, 01:09 PM
I just love the Devil from Cow & Chicken. He's also on I Am Weasel. His big red ass and pointy little tail crack me up.
08-22-1999, 01:39 PM
It's BULLWINKLE! While not all of the political satire survives, the basic jokes are timeless and brilliant. One classic bit:
ROCKY: But they're girls! What kind of game can you play with girls!?!
BULLWINKLE: I guess this is a kid's show after all!

Homer J. Simpson and The Tick are in a class by themselves. Special note should be given to The Evil Midnight Bomber.
I'd say Daffy Duck. That little chickenhawk is pretty hilarious too, IMO. I'm awful fond of Marc Anthony, the bull dog too, but I'd have to say he's not "Hilarious". Neither is Bugs, Wiley or Foghorn.

I forgot about Marc Antony. The faces he makes while the kitten is trying to get comfortable on his back are hilarious.
08-23-1999, 03:12 AM
What bombs at midnight? Yeah, baby!
Personally, I like the Sidekicks' lounge.
08-23-1999, 03:19 PM
The Pink Panther, including two of his subsidiary characters, the Ant and the Aardvark.
08-23-1999, 04:23 PM
papabear,I agree! That is my favorite one,with the cat who wants to go to catheaven,but doesn't know where it is."Ya gotta help me!"
08-23-1999, 04:25 PM
Animaniacs, then Freakazoid.
08-23-1999, 05:00 PM
Along with the other WB characters I have to cast a vote for Foghorn Leghorn. That boy could talk! And I haven't seen Yosemite Sam on the list -- he's certainly a contender.

Point of inquiry: Are "Freakazoid" and/or "Earthworm Jim" shown anymore? If so, I may just have to start watching Kid's WB again! :)
Goofy. I can remember sitting with my family watching Goofy cartoons on Wonderful World of Disney with tears running down our faces because we were laughing so hard.
For a one-shot: Max in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". The first time I saw the sleigh segment I seriously wondered if I was going to be able to catch my breath or if I was just going to keep laughing until I passed out.
08-23-1999, 05:16 PM
Ok funniest characters.
Bullwinkle J. Moose
Homer J. Simpsons
Rocket J. Squirrel
That Futurama robot.
Well, I don't know any of their names, but lots of the guys from Dr. Katz are funny.
Same sentiment for that show Science Court, that used to be on ABC saturday mornings, god I loved that show.

Not sure if they're on the WB, but I've seen Freakazoid on Cartoon Network...

The Angry Beavers
Norbert & Dagget
They're a team. You can't break them up. Like Laurle & Hardy.
Like May West & W.C. Fields
Like Tom Sewyr & Huckleberry Finn
Like, like I'm like out of here. Thhatts all folks.

Brak from "Cartoon Planet" on the Cartoon Network. You just have to watch it to appreciate him, there's not a chance I could explain him.

For those of you not familiar, see http://multihome.www.desert.net/redmeat/ . Check out the Meat Locker for past strips. This guy is seriously warped. My favorite one is http://multihome.www.desert.net/redmeat/comics/rm_336.htmlx
As for cartoons, all of the Jay Ward cartoons have the same warped sence of humar. I was always partial to Super Chicken, but Bulwinkle is the one everyone remembers. By the way, my russian blue cat is named Natassia, and my dalmation is named Boris.

To Papa Bear, in re "One Froggy Evening":
I don't follow you. What I wanted to know is, In what way was it funny that the frog would sing and dance ONLY when just the construction worker was present? Especially when the angry cop--who, like the others, couldn't be convinced the frog was doing it. I sure don't think the hapless man was convulsed with laughter when he was thrown into the bughouse. 'Better you than me,' eh?

There is no more futile or thankless a task than to try and explain a joke.
Perhaps you have never encountered something (cars come to mind) that just would not work although you had logically ruled out every possible reason for malfunction. Then you try to demonstrate the problem to someone and it's working perfectly all of a sudden. As soon as they go away the problem is back. This sort of frustrating experience (one of Murphy's Laws, I think) can only be responded to in one of two ways: 1)Losing one's mind 2)Laughing your ass off.
I know my example above doesn't really explain why I think "One Froggy Evening" is hilarious. I don't know why slipping on a banana peel is funny either.
I'll finish by stating that I'm not the only fan of this classic cartoon. "One Froggy Evening" has been on every list of best cartoons of all time I have ever seen compiled.

Gotta go with Big Iron, Mr John, Kat, Trumpy and Adam Yak. The Tick rules. Many of the associate super heroes on this show are pretty funny too.
