Daffy Duck - 1937

Daffy made his debut in 1937 on a short called ‘Porky Duck Hunt’ by Tex Avery and Bob Clampett. Known as one of the first ever ‘screwball characters’ Daffy has gone on to become an iconic work of art.

Bugs Bunny - 1940

This classic carrot-chewing bunny first made his appearance in a 1940 short known as ‘A Wild Hare’ by Leon Schlesinger and voiced by Mel Blanc. Bugs is now one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in history and is a true icon of American animation.

Tom and Jerry - 1940

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera created these two classic characters in 1940 for MGM. A simple tale about a cat chasing a mouse, this show has earned a total of 7 Academy awards for best animated short film.

Popeye - 1929 (1933)

Popeye was first created in 1929 by an artist named Elzie Crisler Segar, but didn’t become an animated cartoon until the early 30’s. Nowadays, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t recognize the sailor with his massive arms, pipe, and squinted eye.

Scooby Doo - 1969

Scooby Doo, who’s first name is actually “Scoobert” was created in 1969 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Scooby and his gang have been busting ghosts and criminals ever since.

Mickey Mouse - 1928

Perhaps one of, if not THE most famous cartoon character on earth, Mickey was created under the name “Mortimer Mouse” before Walt Disney’s wife suggested changing it to “Mickey.”
