Which cartoon character did or do you want to be?

Asked by Pachy (18610points) November 24th, 2013

Inspired by @ragingloli’s question. As a young kid, I wanted to be Superman so badly I actually prayed for it.

I never wanted to be one of the actual characters. I wanted, and still want, to be a new character inserted into the respective series and help resolve problems using my relative omniscience.

Lucy from Charlie Brown. I give great Psychiatric advise, but 5 cents…really? lol

Pachy's avatar

Well, @Coloma, getting five cents for giving your two cents is a pretty good deal.

Winnie the Pooh. I wanted to live in the Thousand Acre Forest.

Inspector Gadget. Only for the gadgets. I wouldn’t want to be as clumsy or as lame brained as he was.

Not much space left for a brain, when you install helicopter blades in your head.

@chyna, thank you—you reminded me that when I was a young kid I wanted so badly to live in one of those little burrows like Bugs Bunny had, with the little beds, and pictures on the wall, etc. They always looked so cozy and safe.

Not much room in them for a pachyderm, though.

@ragingloli I always thought the helicopter was in his hat.

Speaking of cartoons and honestly, not trying to be mean, but does she look a bit like Snow White retaining water?

Coloma's avatar

^^^ Haha, she does. Snow White at 40 maybe?

I adore Sylvester, Tweety Bird, granny and Wile E. Coyote & The Roadrunner.

I’m surprised that you didn’t choose one of my other favorite Cartoons

I never really wanted to be an established character. There are a few characters I thought (and think) I could replace quite easily, improving the situation immensely.

The Pink Panther.

My favorite Saturday morning cartoon as a kid was Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, and I totally wanted to be Gadget. She was the pilot, inventor, and mechanic. Sort of like Kaylee from Firefly, if she were a mouse.

I wanted to be a Muppet. Fozzy Bear…funny, cuddly

There was this dude in The Arabian Knights, he could change into any creature by clapping his hands & yelling whatever animal took his fancy, size of a buffalo!!
That would be quite cool.

Not because I enjoy beating up bullies. I’m just strangely attracted to Shelley Duvall…

I was Charlie Brown, but wanted to be anyone else.

downtide's avatar

I wanted to be an extra member on the Battle of the Planets team (mainly because of my answer to @ragingloli‘s question).

Pachy's avatar


Funny answer, though I have to admit Duvall was never my cop of tea. ;-)

Pachy's avatar

@Coloma, I liked those guys, too. Sylvester’s lisp still kills me.

OneBadApple's avatar

Aw, come on, Pachy…..she’s got that…...those…......uhh…....

You know, on second thought she’s really not my cup of tea either….

Johnny Quest.

Esmeralda from the Disney version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, I just think she’s so beautiful.

Dutchess_III's avatar

The Little Wormaid.

ucme's avatar

I never wanted to be Daphne, just wanted to do her.
Unlike Fred the pussy who constantly chickened out even though she practically laid it on a plate for the prat.

anniereborn's avatar

Well since I was in theater for half my life, I DID get to play two cartoon characters.




Dutchess_III's avatar

Piglet and Orphan Anne?

OneBadApple's avatar


Yyyyy…....yyyou… played ‘Annie’, right ??

Dutchess_III's avatar

Well, if she was willing to play Piglet, why not Annie’s dog….what was his name?

ragingloli's avatar

There is this song about Claudia and his German Shepherd.

anniereborn's avatar

@OneBadApple Yes, I played Annie haha.

@Dutchess_lll The dog’s name is Sandy

Dutchess_III's avatar

Oh yeah. Did you play Sandy @anniereborn? When my little sisters and I were kids we’d play house. Lexy would always be the dog. We’d tie her up outside of the “house,” what ever it was.

anniereborn's avatar

@Dutchess_III No. I was Annie. In the musical Annie.
