We all know about Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny, but what about the other, often neglected cartoon characters? This list is for those who want to learn more about some lesser-known (but equally entertaining) animated beings out there. These ten ugly cartoon characters are sure to make you laugh, from a conehead with anger issues to a singing fish with an attitude. So take a look and see which one of them strikes your fancy.
1. Mr. Burns from “The Simpsons
Mr. Burns is the epitome of an ugly cartoon character. He’s got a big, bulbous nose, beady eyes, and a bald head. He’s also got a bit of a mean streak, which makes him all the more entertaining to watch. Other than this, Mr. Burns is also known for being incredibly rich, which makes him even more disliked by the other characters on the show. So, if you’re looking for an ugly cartoon character that’s both funny and dislikable, Mr. Burns is a perfect choice.
2. Gargamel from “The Smurfs”:
Gargamel is another excellent example of an ugly cartoon character. He’s got a long, pointy nose, beady eyes, and a bald head. He’s also always shown wearing a dirty, raggedy robe. In addition to being ugly, Gargamel is also evil. He’s always trying to capture the Smurfs to use them for evil purposes. Besides this, Gargamel is known for his short temper and love of money. All in all, Gargamel is an excellent example of an ugly cartoon character that you should know about.
3. Wile E. Coyote from “Looney Tunes”:
This poor coyote always tries to catch the Road Runner but never succeeds. He’s been hit by trucks, run over by trains, and blown up countless times, yet he never gives up. He’s a determined little guy, and you can’t help but root for him, even though he’s always the butt of the joke. Besides, he’s also known for his notorious “Acme” products, which never seem to work out for him.
4. The Grinch from “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas”:
The Grinch is a bitter, green-colored creature who resides in a dark cave on Mount Crumpit, just outside of the Whoville town. He hates Christmas and tries to stop it from happening every year. Despite his grumpy exterior, the Grinch is a kind-hearted creature who needs a little love and attention. Besides this, he’s also got some pretty impressive musical skills (as seen in the 2000 live-action film adaptation of the story).
5. Pig from “Angry Birds”:
If there’s one animal that’s universally recognized as being ugly, it’s the pig. And yet, the Pig from “Angry Birds” is still somehow adorable. Perhaps it’s his big, bulbous nose or his small, beady eyes. Or maybe it’s because he’s always getting himself into trouble. Whatever the reason, the Pig is a lovable character you cannot help but root for. Besides, he’s also one of the most popular characters in the “Angry Birds” franchise and has even starred in his own spin-off game.
Skeletor is the resident bad guy in the “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” franchise. He’s a skeletal being with blue skin and constantly trying to defeat He-Man and take over Castle Grayskull. He’s known for his evil cackle and is one of the most iconic villains in all cartoons. However, he’s also been known to be quite bumbling and incompetent, which is part of what makes him so funny.
7. Hagar the Horrible from “The Comics”:
This large and in charge Viking is never afraid to speak his mind, no matter how blunt or controversial it may be. He’s also got a volatile temper, which often gets him into hot water with his long-suffering wife, Helga. But despite all of his flaws, Hagar is a lovable character who always means well. Besides this, he is also quite the lady’s man and has been known to woo many a fair maiden. So, if you’re looking for a cartoon character that’s both ugly and lovable, then Hagar the Horrible is the one for you.
8. Snagglepuss from “The Hanna-Barbera Super TV Stars”:
Snagglepuss was one of the stars of “The Hanna-Barbera Super TV Stars”, a Saturday morning cartoon anthology series that featured various Hanna-Barbera characters. Snagglepuss was an orange, anthropomorphic cat who spoke with a Southern drawl and was always getting into mischief. He was also known for his catchphrase, “Exit, stage left!” However, despite his ugly exterior, Snagglepuss was a kind-hearted soul who always tried to do the right thing.
9. Charlie Brown from “Peanuts”:
Though he’s been around for decades, Charlie Brown is still one of the most popular cartoon characters. He’s also been called “one of the ugliest cartoon characters” by some people. But we think there’s a charm to his lopsided head and melancholy expression. Charlie Brown is best known for his catchphrase “Good grief!” and his loveable (if not consistently successful) efforts to win over the affections of the Little Red-Haired Girl.
10. Boris the Wolf from “An American Tail: Fievel Goes West”:
Boris the Wolf is one of the main antagonists in the “An American Tail” series. He is a large, ugly orange wolf with a Russian accent. He is also one of the few cartoon characters on this list who is scary. Besides this, he is also rather dim-witted and often makes mistakes. Overall, Boris is a fun character to watch, and he adds some excitement to the series.
So there you have ten ugly cartoon characters you need to know. These characters may not be the most attractive, but they are entertaining. So if you’re ever in the mood for a good laugh, be sure to check out some of their adventures.
