if you are a cartoon character, who are you and why?
I guess the correct answer would be Tweety?
I do like Mr.Horse a lot though.
I remember taking a quiz and getting Velma ... Jinkies!
Bluto. The resemblance is uncanny.
Some animated Muppet no doubt.
This sounds like one of those silly Facebook exercises, which I avoid at all costs- "If you were in Star Wars, who would you be?"
Honestly I don't know, a cross between Godzilla and Scrat?
I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the cholesterol that clogs your arteries! I am Darkwing Duck!
Popeye The Sailor.. Why?, because I love spinach. (creamed)
I always had a soft spot for Garfield, an urbane, sardonic observer of the sheer absurdity of life, with a healthy appetite for some of life's pleasures thrown in
I am not a cartoon character.
I am a human being.
And too literal and boring for my own good.
In a face to face conversation with this as the topic under discussion, - even if well lubricated by alcohol - that would probably have been my reply, too. But here, under the safe cloak of anonymity afforded by the internet, along with the added refuge bestowed by a nom-de-plume, one can risk offering an opinion
That's just what you want us to believe.
There are more toons in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of on the internet.
Is the cartoon character supposed to describe us as we are, or what we aspire to be, or one that possesses a quality which we desire for ourselves?
What if I haven't watched cartoons for 40 years? How many great characters are out there, that I am totally unaware of, that could describe me perfectly, while I'm stuck choosing between Deputy Dawg and George of the Jungle?
Being Apple fanboy and being a bit moody, maybe this guy?
Strangely enough, I think it may be a mixture of all of those things. At any rate, the OP did not specify, so it could be as we are, or as we aspire to be, or a character that possesses a quality that we admire for ourselves or recognise within ourselves.
Actually, it - identifying with a cartoon character - is something I had never given a minute's thought to until I read the thread title - like you, I don't think I have watched many cartoons for the best part of forty years, either.
However, I have mulled over characters in fiction; I suspect that we all may have our favourites.
Doraemon, cute and smart
Or his alter-ego, Brutus.
Yep, I'd be Garfield. Next to a tray of lasagna.
Ahh yes, Garfield. Probably my very favorite comic character of all time. I used to get the comic books from the mobile book store that came to the school every year. I would read them over and over until I wore them out.
Wile E. Coyote. Always planning, but not always clearly thinking out what the end result will bring.
He's mine too. Love that guy.
