What are the most famous cartoon character names you can remember?

Curtis Cartoon CharacterCartoons are a huge part of my life and have been since I was a little buck-a-roo watching my favorite Saturday morning cartoons. So much so that I even turned myself into a super hero character to help market my cartooning business.

Through the years I’ve read hundreds of comic books, comic strips and seen dozens of cartoon movies and TV shows. On top of all that I’ve been exposed to countless cartoon characters used to sell me something like a bowl of cereal.


My personal favorite characters and comics have been Superman, Charlie Brown, Scooby Doo, Herman, Sad Sack and those funny Don Martin characters in MAD Magazine. Every now and then I like to remember some of those funny characters and have trouble thinking of a name or two. The list below are the names of characters I remember or have run across over the years.

I’ve seen many lists online that are either incomplete and don’t even list the most popular names to lists that name every character ever mentioned on earth whether anyone has heard of them or not. This character name list tries to balance both aspects. I wanted to compile the most popular names that most people have heard of and not worry about names that only appear in one scene of one movie.

These names come from comics, TV shows, movies, books and commercials. I’ve tried to add of few from every media. This is by no means a list of every cartoon character known to man or a list of the best characters. It is just a quick list of names to help jog your memory or bring back a forgotten favorite. This is also a great list of cartoon names in case you are in need of one for your baby.

Enjoy the list and please share it with anyone else that might be looking for fun characters names.

I remember a few as I was growing up. Like Clutch Cargo with his pals Scooter and paddlefoot. Also there was Scott McCloud of the show Space Angel. This is 2 that I watched years ago.

When you listed “Lulu” it should have been listed as “Little Lulu”
