animation cartoons characters

In animation, there’s always those irresistibly cute and adorable characters you can’t help but love, that don’t cross the line from adorable to sickeningly cutesy. In anime terms, they are often known as moe, or kawaii. Even some the manliest of men can’t help but have a soft spot for them deep down. Give it up, for the most overpoweringly cute/adorable characters in animation that just make you wanna- HNNNNG!!!!

1. Wall-E, “Wall-E”

Those eyes. That voice. When we were putting together this list, there was only one clear choice for the top spot, and it was the insanely adorable robot who saves the human race. Will Baymax challenge him for this slot as time goes by? We’ll have to wait and see.

2. Jerry Mouse

Jerry Mouse is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films .

3. Boo

Child characters in movies are often hit-or-miss. Pixar knocked it out of the park with Boo. In a universe where monsters are afraid of children as much as kids are frightened of them, and scaring little kids is nothing more than a day job, we’re introduced to the sweetest little girl in animation. Taken to the world of Monstropolis, the young and innocent Boo eventually forms a bond with the big blue Sulley. She soon makes him see that perhaps children aren’t to be feared at all. Why can’t all kids be like her?!

4. Pearl, “Finding Nemo”

Nemo is no slouch himself, but we can’t resist his adorable octopus friend. Pearl is so squishy and pink, it makes us want to ink ourselves.

5. Snoopy

Snoopy is a character in comic strip Peanuts. He first appears in the strip from October 4 1950. He often sleeps on the top of his dog house. He belongs to Charlie Brown. He was created by Charles M. Schulz. He also appears in all the specials and the 2015 Peanuts Movie.

6. Pikachu

Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

7. Bubbles

Bubbles is the deuteragonist in the animated television series The Powerpuff Girls, along with her sisters Blossom and Buttercup .

 8. Stitch

Created by a self-proclaimed evil genius, Experiment 626 was soon sentenced to spend his life trapped on an asteroid for his destructive nature. But he manages to flee and ends up in Hawaii, where he styles himself as a dog and is befriended by a young girl named Lilo. How did a vicious alien earn a spot on our list? By learning the meaning of ‘ohana’ and forming an unbreakable bond with Lilo. He’s by far the cutest extraterrestrial of them all.

9. The Minions

They’re short, yellow and you can’t understand a word they’re saying. This seemingly endless horde of workers serves the self-styled greatest criminal mastermind, Gru, and assists him in all of his wacky ideas. What makes these guys so lovable are their high-pitched voices, wild expressions, and mini-adventures that bring in the laughs. Admit it, you want one (or a couple) of your own too.

10. Thumper

Thumper, named after his habit of thumping his rear foot, is one of the closest friends of Bambi, a white-tailed deer who lives in the Forest. Along with being cheerful and oh-so-furry, this pink-nosed rabbit helps Bambi get through growing up and provides moral lessons whenever possible. Turns out he’s also easily smitten; well, you know what they say about rabbits. Awwwww!
