Optimus and Scooby should've been higher, their more iconic than the flinstons and the Simpson's. Why wasn't Garfield on the list? He's just as iconic as Charlie Brown

SpongeBob is number 1 because people stopped caring about Homer Simpson and got tired of him Miley mouse is now a corporate mascot for Disney and is not popular anymore bugs bunny is just a goofy character and antagonist for elmur fud and does not have a deep and relatable meaning for adults bugs bunny is just a funny goofy character for children the thing that makes spongebob truly unique is spongebob and squid ward are a balance of childhood and adulthood and there just some guys who are foils for eachother but since sponge bob represents childhood and squid ward represents adulthood it's more relatable for both children and adults and it shows how genuine happynis can't be forced and can be achevied by imagination and it shows that they care about the story of both of them more then the plot squid ward is a sad adult and spongebob is an adult with childlike qualities and there outlook is different of the story sponge bobs being positive and squid wards being negative spongebob is the most popular cartoon character of this mellenia and even above Mikey mouse bugs bunny Homer Simpson snoopy Garfield and even scooby doo that's why spongebob is number 1 and always rember nobody beats SpongeBob 💪👊👍.
I like Bugs Bunny but Mickey Mouse should be #1

I neither like Bugs nor Mickey, but the mouse is way more iconic. (hey, what about a top 10 Watchmojo fails?)
PAOerful One (2 months ago)
Bugs may be a more interesting and enjoyable character to watch. But when it comes to most *ICONIC* characters, which is what this list is, then it's not even close. It's Mickey.

As iconic as Bugs Bunny is (and I’m a big fan of him and all the Looney Tunes characters), Mickey Mouse is more iconic because more people instantly recognize his face than Bugs. At least, that has been my experience, especially among the younger generations. Bugs and Mickey are really the anti-archetypes of each other. Mickey is (or at least he was originally) the underdog. Bugs has never been the underdog (except maybe in The Tortoise and The Hare). Even Daffy Duck, who is usually more than a match for the other Looney Tunes characters (Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, etc.), usually comes out of 1 vs. 1 match with Bugs as the vanquished and defeated. As hysterical as it is to see Bugs outsmart everybody, I think people identify more with the underdog.

I don't think Optimus Prime should have been the only Transformer on here. I think Megatron and Bumblebee should have been right along with him, possibly Starscream.
Zombie Slaya (4 months ago)
Layne G No Optimus Prime is the best transformer

Mike DiMauro (4 months ago)
Mickey should be 1 Bugs should be 2
Mike DiMauro (4 months ago)
I know that they rated Bugs as 1 but Mickey should be 1 and is 1 in my book!
Zombie Slaya (4 months ago)
Mike DiMauro No Bugs is 1
juliancisthebest (4 months ago)
How is Mickey not #1? And Stewie instead of Peter Griffin? And not even an honorable mention for Yogi Bear and Boo Boo?
Zombie Slaya (4 months ago)
juliancisthebest No way Bug Bunny is more iconic
Whit Preston (4 months ago)
No Honorable Mention for Kermit the Frog from Muppet Babies? To this day anyone who grew up with the Muppet Babies can attest that the show formulated the majority of their fondest childhood memories. And it still cannot be found on DVD or digital download? Others can disagree with me, but SpongeBob is kinda obnoxious and not very funny either. Thus, why did he make the list?
RetroSlizzoVII (4 months ago)
Mickey should be no 1
Zombie Slaya (4 months ago)
ScopeGod No Bugs is 1

Too bad, Calvin and Hobbs wasn't a cartoon.  If they was they would be on this list.
Tanner Dickinson (5 months ago)
how is bugs bunny more iconic than micky mouse?
Felixland Kalle Studios (5 months ago)
Hmm...Donald Duck should be on the list!
Jake Nelson (5 months ago)
Goofy is the best cartoon character, the list is pretty accurate but not necessarily in the right order and you really should of included anime to because there are anime characters just as iconic and more iconic than some of the characters on your list.
Wetfeet569 (5 months ago)
where is peter griffin???

King Khaalid (5 months ago)
This list I feel had all the right characters but just weren't placed in the right positions. I don't know what it is but all these places just didn't feel right. The Smurfs and Pikachu should have been an honorable mention more then Alvin and the chipmunks. And as much as I Looooove Looney Toons more then I love most of these shows Mickey Mouse has to be #1. He is the staple of animation and cartoons. It started all with him(even though I love bugs bunny more).
The Infiscape (5 months ago)
"We excluded characters who originated from comics," Puts Garfield and Charlie Brown on list. Also, no WAY Bugs is more iconic than Mickey
Baron Taylor (5 months ago)
Yogi Bear, Droopy, Donald Duck, Winnie the Pooh, Ren, Stimpy, Fry, Doug, Tommy Pickles, George Jetson, and Garfield
Koolazzmike (5 months ago)
No Yogi Bear but they put Stewie on there? Yogi was one of Hanna Barberas first superstar, sold lots of merchandise and very iconic, part of pop culture for generations way more than Stewie
Bryce Sorensen (5 months ago)
No Smurfs? Ouch!
1-UP MUSHROOM (5 months ago)
What about Bender from futurama?
DJ Frankenberger (5 months ago)
Scooby Doo, Patrick Star, and Mickey Mouse should be 1-3 respectively.
