Top 10: Irritating ’90s Cartoon Characters
Bonkers D. Bobcat
By 1993, America was clamoring for a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? What they got instead was Bonkers, a cheap knockoff that featured a similarly washed-up movie star with a penchant for slapstick comedy and detective work. Had the principal character been more endearing, it could have worked, but Bonkers D. Bobcat was little more than a pale imitation of Roger whose tired antics were more annoying than absurd. Disney finally realized their mistake two years later and put Bonkers and his costars out of their collective misery by dropping a giant anvil on the series.
Although science has yet to confirm our suspicions, we’re convinced that the only sound more annoying than fingernails on a chalkboard is the ungodly screech of Gilbert Gottfried’s voice; that’s just one of the reasons we labeled Iago one of the most irritating ‘90s cartoon characters. He was also a villainous scarlet macaw who performed the evil bidding of his master Jafar. We also hated his seemingly endless sarcastic rants that had all the bite of a toothless poodle. Hey, if we wanted to hear an angry diatribe, we’d just listen to our girlfriends.
Angelica Charlotte Pickles
We’ve never trusted children. They’re frequently spoiled and ill-tempered, and Angelica Pickles is certainly no exception. This bratty little 3 year old is a hellion with pigtails who keeps her neglectful parents under her tiny little thumb. If Angelica were our little girl, we would have given her an extended time-out that would have lasted until her 21st birthday.
Just because a character is the focal point of an amusing comic strip, doesn’t mean that he has the charisma to star in his very own half-hour cartoon show. That was the case with Dilbert, our No. 7 irritating ‘90s cartoon character. He was an excruciatingly boring electrical engineer whose life was as dull as his red- and black-striped tie. Luckily for us, producers came to their senses and gave this office drone the pink slip after just 10 episodes.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had no shortage of aggravating characters, so choosing just one irritating ‘90s cartoon character from this show isn’t easy. However, Rocksteady wins hands down because of his sheer stupidity and ineptitude. A 6’8”, 540-poung rhinoceros with the brain of a walnut, Rocksteady was so dense that he made Beavis and Butthead look like Nobel laureates.
Remember when producers of the Itchy & Scratchy Show attempted to liven up their program by introducing Poochie, a skateboard-riding beagle with sunglasses and a backwards hat? That’s exactly what Disney did back in 1992 when they created Goof Troop, an animated show that followed the offbeat adventures of Goofy’s son, Max. However, rather than being a hipper version of his old man, the newest member of the Goofy clan was little more than a thinly disguised marketing ploy created by a bunch of out-of-touch middle-aged suits. Much like Poochie, Max was also universally reviled, forcing Disney to put their ill-advised creation to sleep after just 10 episodes.
Number 4 (Really?)
What can you say about a character whose audience seems to consist exclusively of prepubescent children and 35-year-old gay men? Maybe they see something we don’t, because every time we tune in we find SpongeBob’s earnest and well-meaning attitude to be more irritating than a lawn dart lodged in our left eye. As if his overbearing optimism weren’t bad enough, this glowing sea sponge always tries far too hard, which inevitably creates problems not only for himself, but for everyone around him too.
No one likes a know-it-all, which is why we’ve always despised Lisa. The glaring weak link in an otherwise brilliant program, Lisa is a boring bookworm whose favorite activities include attending school and reading Non-Threatening Boys magazine. As if she weren’t enough of an irritating ‘90s cartoon character already, this 8-year-old overachiever is also a raging feminist and environmental crusader whose judgmental attitude always prevents others from enjoying themselves. If only she learned to kick back and enjoy a few dozen cans of Duff beer like Homer, we’re sure we’d enjoy her more.
Captain Planet and the Planeteers
There’s nothing more annoying than a cartoon character with zero sense of humor, which is why we always rushed to turn the channel whenever we saw Captain Planet on our screen. This holier-than-thou eco avenger is an ancient entity who has been protecting the environment and delivering sleep-inducing lectures about the evils of smog for multiple centuries. Maybe it’s just his feathery green mullet, but we could never take this guy and his rants about recycling newsprint seriously.
Arguably the most annoying anime character ever created, Pikachu was a miniature yellow creature who was so lame he could have had his ass kicked by Hello Kitty. Still, we’ve always wondered what a Pikachu might taste like…
