Donald Duck should be in the top ten, ahead of Cartman and Betty Boop.

I guess I agree. I always had a feeling I put Donald a bit too low. Any other suggestions?

I'm usually against "older things have to be higher on the list" but Cartman and Spongebob seem a little high going against some of the most iconic cartoon characters in history. One hard thing, though, is that a lot of these characters are famous beyond their television show (Charlie Brown and Winnie the Pooh, for example). Are you putting any weight on the character being famous outside of the show (comic strips, books etc?), especially for stuff that happened before they were on television.

Well, I probably should base it on cartoons only. But it's hard to separate character achievements with different mediums. I think I got Charlie Brown about right and Winnie the Pooh is possibly too high, if we are trying to evaluate them as cartoon characters only. And how far do you think Cartman and Spongebob should drop?

This is basically why I should never be in charge of anything.

Maybe, but I am afraid it's pretty redundant, since we already have greatest cartoons list, where most of the great characters are represented.

Somewhere in the top 100, I guess. I can't see his character as being all that original or innovative, but he is pretty popular and important in context of American Dad!

Peter Griffin would be far higher, as would Stewie and possibly Brian.

Stewie I get. Why Brian?

Actually, Stewie would probably go over Peter, I think.

I think all 3 of them are pretty much interchangeable. What makes one greater than another?

Stewie is by far the most popular one of the show. His crossover appeal is massive; he even got his own Macy's float several years ago.
