Cartoons have been a part of human culture for more than a century and have evolved. Cartoons have gone from being one-off funny pictures to full-length animated features. This means that cartoon characters have gotten more detailed and uglier (sometimes).
Some cartoon characters are so ugly and gross that you’d be surprised anyone thought it was okay to animate them! We’re going to look at those 15 ugly cartoon characters and wonder what the animators thought when they drew them.
- Daffy Duck
- Larry the Cable Guy
- Billy West
- Hank Azaria
- Rajesh Koothrappali
- Stewie Griffin
- The Grinch
- Donald Duck
- Patty Mayonnaise
- Mickey Mouse
- Stu Pickles
- Yogi Bear
- Eric Cartman
- Peter Griffin
Daffy Duck, who first appeared in 1937, is an anthropomorphic black duck with a yellow bill, legs, and feet. He has been called “the animated equivalent of Mickey Mouse.” Daffy’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was dedicated on August 30th 1988, by his nephew Bob Dobbs. In 1989, Daffy was number 14 on TV Guide’s list of top 50 best cartoon characters; in 2001, he was 23rd on Empire Magazine’s 50 greatest animated characters list.
Larry the Cable Guy
Larry, the Cable Guy, is an American stand-up comedian and actor known for his Southern Blue Collar Comedy Tour, including Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall.
Larry, the Cable Guy, has also succeeded as a voice actor in animated films such as Cars, Barnyard and Toy Story 2. He also voices Junior Asparagus on VeggieTales, Sissy in The Simpsons Movie, Taurus Bulba in Universal Studios Singapore’s The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn ride and Sheriff Buford Pusser from “The Joe Bob Briggs Film Festival”.
Billy West is an American actor, voice actor, comedian and singer. He is best known for his work on the animated television series Futurama, where he provides the voices of Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr Zoidberg and Zapp Brannigan, among others.
West was born in Lexington, Massachusetts, to parents William and Jean West (née Richmond). He later moved to Stoughton, where he attended high school with comedian Steven Wright at Montclair High School in New Jersey, before moving back to Massachusetts, where he graduated from Stoughton High School as class valedictorian in 1965.
Cat is a character from the show “The Cat in the Hat” and its movie adaptation. In the show, Cat is known for her distinctive look: she has green hair, yellow eyes with black pupils, a large purple bow on her head, and red-and-white striped legs.
In addition, she wears a pink dress with three white polka dots on it, white gloves that go past her elbows, and magenta shoes similar to those worn by Mary Poppins (Meryl Streep).
The Cat was voiced by actress Sally Field in both versions of The Cat in the Hat; however, she did not wear any make-up during production, so it would be easier for viewers to see how she looked underneath all that cat fur!
Hank Azaria has been in the acting industry for 30 years. He is best known for his voice roles as Apu Nahasapeemapetilon in The Simpsons, Moe Szyslak in The Simpsons and Chief Wiggum in The Simpsons.
Hank was born on April 25th 1964, in Queens, New York City. His family moved to America when he was only eight years old, but he still keeps his British citizenship and his American one (which is weird).
Rajesh Koothrappali is a fictional character from the American sitcom The Big Bang Theory. He was created by Chuck Lorre & Bill Prady and portrayed by Kunal Nayyar. Koothrappali is a theoretical physicist and one of Leonard Hofstadter’s closest friends, who lives with him in Apartment 4A at 4 West apartment building on Waverly Place in New York City.
If you’re a cartoon character, you can be pretty ugly. But even if you have a face that looks like the Joker’s—even if your nose is so big it takes up half your face, and you have no hair, and all of your friends are dead—it’s still important to keep yourself groomed. You don’t want to be mistaken for some monster (although they can be fun). Stewie Griffin knows this, so he always styles his greasy locks into a messy man bun.
If only we could say the same about his personality!
The Grinch is an ugly cartoon character with a green body and a large nose. He looks like a dog, but he’s human. He has a heart of gold and is always kind to others, even if he doesn’t want to be. The Grinch hates Christmas, especially all the decorations people put up everywhere and all the singing that goes on around it.
Donald Duck is a classic Disney character who has been around since the early 1930s. He’s made several appearances in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, including his show where he and Daisy help Mickey locate his missing car keys.
Donald is a duck, so he wears a sailor suit and gets into mischief with his friends Huey, Louie, and Dewey. He can be cheerful but aggressive when provoked (and sometimes even when not). Donald also has an annoying habit of being cowardly—he’s afraid of everything!
Patty Mayonnaise is a fictional character in the animated television series King of the Hill, voiced by Brittany Murphy. She is the daughter of Hank Hill and his wife Peggy and the younger sister of Bobby Hill. In addition to being overweight, she is obsessed with food and has a large appetite with voracious appetite for food.
She also loves to eat candy and foods that are unhealthy for her weight, such as junk food and ice cream. In addition, her obesity causes her to wear extra-large clothing, which makes her resemble an overgrown toddler or small child rather than an adult woman.
Mickey Mouse is a cartoon character. He is a mouse. He has an enormous head and tiny feet, which makes him appear to be standing on tiptoe at all times. His hair sticks straight up from his head like wire bristles on a brush, and he has no visible ears or nose—just two black dots for eyes and a small mouth in the centre of his face. His mouth is always open in an expression that looks vaguely like surprise or fear, but it’s unclear whether this comes from some emotional state or is just the result of being so gosh darn cute!
Stu Pickles is a fictional character in the animated television series Rugrats. He is the husband of Didi Pickles and the father of Tommy and Dil. He also has a stepson, Angelica (through marriage), and a biological daughter, Susie Carmichael (in addition to his stepdaughter Angelica).
Stu works in an office where he has to wear a tie at all times; however, he’s not happy with his job. His hobbies include building model aeroplanes and collecting rare baseball cards of Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron, among others.
Yogi Bear is a fictional character created in 1958 by Hanna-Barbera and voiced by Daws Butler. He is a talking bear who wears a yellow shirt, blue hat and red scarf, accompanied by his friend Boo-Boo. Yogi frequently antagonizes Ranger Smith and other inhabitants of Jellystone Park for fun but has a strong moral compass when the situation calls for it.
Eric Cartman: If you’ve ever seen South Park, then you know Eric Cartman. He’s the character who has a “poorly conceived plan” that always backfires in some way.
Babs Bunny: It’s hard to believe that Bugs Bunny could be considered ugly, but if you compare him to his wife (Lola), it’s easy to see where he gets his looks!
Peter Griffin is a fictional character who appears in the animated television series Family Guy. He is voiced by Seth MacFarlane and first appeared on television, along with the rest of the show’s cast, in 1999.
MacFarlane initially intended for Brian to be the main character; however, he changed his mind after creating Peter. Family Guy has been nominated for 12 Primetime Emmy Awards and 11 Annie Awards and has won three of each. In 2009 it was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, making it one of only three animated series to be nominated in this category since The Flintstones in 1961.
Cartoon characters are not all beautiful.
It’s important to note that while many cartoon characters are beautiful, not all of them are. Some of the most iconic cartoon characters ever created aren’t even human! For example:
- Snoopy from Peanuts
- Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes
- Mickey Mouse
These five characters represent a wide range of styles and approaches to drawing, but they all have one thing in common: They’re drawn as animals. This is probably one of the most common ways for artists to portray themselves on paper or TV screens—by taking inspiration from their species (and sometimes others).
These characters are some of the most iconic in history and have also inspired many artists worldwide. Even if they’re not your style, you have to admit that some of these characters are pretty interesting!
