Happy Thanksgiving, world!
Are you a resident of the United States reading this on Turkey Day?
Shame on you! Get off the internet and go call somebody you like. Your mother, maybe, or that friend that you still owe a coffee to. Pet your cat. Visit your neighbor. Thanksgiving may not have the most romantic roots, but it is a good excuse to appreciate what is around you.
Okay, that being said, you guys, I had a super fun time writing about ladies in cartoons, but I had even more fun listening to what you had to say about it. Jake brought the excellent example of Olive Oyl. CK brought up Animaniacs’ Dot. Michael brought up Avatar’s Suki. Laura mentioned the ever-famous April O’Neil, which warmed the cockles of my nerdy, nerdy heart.
So, Internet, what do you have to say about this? Did I leave out any great cartoon characters, or any awful ones? I was focusing on animated ladies on television, but maybe there is some stellar example in film. Maybe there is some dude that I shafted (huh huh huh) when making these lists, and you want to be sure he gets represented.
So tell me! Who do you like? Who do you hate?
And why, friends, why?
I am pretty pumped up to see what you say.
