    Difficult to do this one in Poll form without excluding someone's choices, but having watched an episode of Wacky Races on Saturday evening it brought back how funny and well-written some cartoon characters can be.

    So I was wondering who everyone's preferred animated protagonists are. Post a pic and who the character is, so we can all google for those we don't know.

    As hinted at above, I'm voting for these two

    The first TV show to blow my mind.

    EDIT: Just so people know, it's Uncle Scrooge from Ducktales.

    The first cartoon in which I remember characters actually dying.

    Oh, so is this open now to cartoon, comic book, and newspaper comic characters? Much more difficult, as it now opens the door for some of my other favorites:

    - Calvin and Hobbes (of course)
    - Green Lantern

    I love Calvin and Hobbes (see profile picture). Though I'm going to go classic with my choice for my animated cartoon.

    I will vote again for Uncle Scrooge! I wasn't that big into Duck Tales when I was little, though I did read all the comics religiously. And still do!

    I'll also add this as a close second:

    In the spirit of the original post, I'll stick with animated cartoon characters.

    First of all, in this category it's Bugs Bunny, and then everyone else. :D

    Some of my favorite runners-up, though, are these guys:

    I don't know if you would consider them protagonists.
