    Who IYPO is the most famous and known cartoon character of all time?

    I'll kick it off by saying I think it's Homer Simpson. You could argue Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny all day but I never hear their name's mentioned anymore and I hear Simpsons references every where I go. A few years ago I might have said Bugs Bunny or Mickey but I just think The Simpsons have stood the test of time better and stronger and I think they always will.

    Thanks btw

        Neither Sponge Bob nor The Simpsons. These are relatively new characters. If you want to talk about 'of all times' you may want to start with the golden age of cartoons. Mickey/Bugs bunny could be.

            The greatest test of a cartoon character's popularity is to show people a silhouette of a character and have them identify it. Mickey Mouse is far more recognizable across the board when you take this into consideration. In fact, most people are USED to seeing this as part of the Disney brand. Homer Simpson, Bugs Bunny, Sponge Bob... all of these characters (while also younger than Mickey) do not represent their brand or parent company quite like Mickey does. However, they are all in the top 10 or so.

                There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

                One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

                  Would have to be Mickey Mouse whether you like 'em or not. Can't think of any others that're more widely known throughout the world than him.

                      I agree SpongeBob isn't even in the same class but I mentioned Bugs and Mickey obviously :S

                      Anyway as I said, their never mentioned anymore, aren't as relevant as they once were in the media's eyes. The Simpsons are still talked about to this day and people use that humor everywhere you go.
                      People aren't even starting to show signs of the simpsons. As far as Golden age and "new cartoon" I don't what rock you've been hiding under but The Simpsons have been "America's Family" for over 26 years. They first debut in 87'. Their not new and their not old either people love them as soon as they laid eyes on them and they still do to this day and always will.


                      .....Spongebob on the other hand lol

                            Weather he "represents his brand or parent company" well or not I still don't think that makes him as popular as The Simpsons. I think that while a lot of Disney's success and popularity is well deserved, a lot of it has also been over advertised and shoved down people's throats and that shtick is starting to get old with people. I also don't think Disney's fanbase sticks as well anymore, kids are growing out of it more and more and while there is always new kids to target, there are more and more new fads and I don't think Disney attracts as well as it once did and its slowly starting to die off, While the Simpsons have more of an older die hard fan base.

                                  About Felix the cat, he may not be the most famous cartoon character, but he is one of the oldest. He's been around since the 20's.

                                    I'm sorry, not to be mean, but this comment is more than a little absurd.

                                    You didn't ask what cartoon character or show has the most "die hard fan base" you asked who is the most famous,as in what cartoon character do people most recognize, and that's easily Mickey Mouse. Just about everyone from ages 3 to 103 know who Mickey Mouse is, whether you're a fan of Disney or not. Homer Simpson and the Simpsons are up there, but there are still people in there 70s to 80s who never watched the Simpsons and can't identify Homer Simpson, just as there are wee toddlers who are too young to watch the Simpsons, these people (all not of them) wouldn't be able to mention Homer Simpson by name, which most (again probably not all) can easily mention and recognize who Mickey Mouse is, he's been around WAY longer than the Simpsons.

                                    And I don't know how you can say the Simpsons have "more of an older die hard fan base" than Mickey Mouse or Disney all together does, again considering that Mickey is one of, if not the, most famous cartoon characters of all time going all the way back to the 1930s, there are people in their 50s and up who still collect Mickey Mouse and Disney memorabilia and have fond memories of the cartoons, so how is the Simpsons fan base "older?" Yes it can be argue that as of the past 7 or 8 years or so, Disney has mainly market Mickey for a younger fanbase, especially with the show "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" or whatever, but that still doesn't change the fact that Mickey is still a timeless and beloved character. The Simpsons are starting to get up there and probably will one day, but the Simpsons isn't 75 plus years old and still known and loved around the world like Mickey Mouse is, so saying Homer is more famous than Mickey, or even Bugs Bunny, is WAY off the mark.

                                      Are you talking about most famous or best? I interpret what you are saying as going after your question as if it is the latter, which is far more subjective. If you do mean most famous, advertising contributes greatly to fame. Gordon Ramsay might not be the best chef or best TV chef (again this is a matter of opinion, not fact) but I think he is the most famous TV chef right now. And a lot of people are definitely feeling his schtick getting old.

                                      Whoa whoa whoa. I can write off all your other authoritative comments about the significance and importance of the Simpsons and the lack thereof in Disney/Loony Tunes as babblings of a youth who lacks context but this just plainly shows ignorance. Lots of people, myself included, are totally sick of Simpsons and consider there to be clearly more bad episodes than good ones by now. Just visit the comments section of any site that reviews TV episodes to see this.* The show is absolutely terrible now. There are many people arguing over exactly when The Simpsons began to decline, but it's few of them who call it later than season 12. (For me it's season 6.) There's even a whole book about just this specific topic.

                                          I am sorry Keerjeerclacko, but clearly you don't really know what you're talking about.

                                          You're entitled to your opinion just like everyone else, so if you like the Simpsons more than Disney or Looney Tunes, there is totally nothing wrong with that. But as I stated before saying, "the Simpsons stood the test of time better than Disney or Looney Tunes" is really REALLY absurd. Truthfully I am starting to wonder if you believe all those cartoons Simpsons, Mickey Mouse and Disney, and Bugs Bunny and Looney Tunes debuted at the same time in the 80s and have no concept of what the "golden age of animation" was. You stated the Simpsons have an "older fan base" than Disney and Mickey Mouse? Again I don't want to be mean, but when I read your comment on that, my mind was blowen by how purely absurd that was to say.

                                          I also saw your other post about cartoons in which you called He-Man "legendary" which is something that...well...I just flat out don't agree with at all, truthfully I feel Thundercats and TMNT were better and I still wouldn't call those shows "legendary," but that's also because I don't throw that word around too often, myself.

                                          In short, I think you should have been more careful about what you named your two threads about cartoons (really in both threads your asking the same question) to something along the lines of what cartoon character do you like best. Just cause you like something more doesn't make it more famous, for example, you might not like, say, Paris Hiltion but you know how she is, cause she is famous.
