OK, so crushes on animated characters are a legit thing, you guys! You've seen the candid confessions of my esteemed colleague Kristen, but I thought I'd add my viewpoint so that those who like girls get a chance to enthuse about their fave cartoon hotties!
11) Misty (Pokemon)
Just... such a babe.
10) Lola Bunny (Space Jam)
With her saucy singlet and devastating accuracy, Lola Bunny is a slam-dunk of hotness. Her slender waist and popping curves are guaranteed to work up a sweat... and you know what they say about rabbits...
9) April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
April was a serious babe in her yellow jumpsuit, that guy Casey Jones was never good enough for her. She does drive like a maniac, but she's looking pretty great for a lady who socializes almost exclusively with malformed amniotes.
8) Daphne Anne Blake (Scooby-Doo)
... and in a weird way, Velma? Embarrassingly enough, I have been told I look like Velma. Although I cannot claim to fill an orange turtleneck so impressively. Daphne has the clear edge in being the less awkward of the two, and limiting the orange in her ensemble to that flaming hair.
7) Leela (Futurama)
She can be a bit of a one-eyed monster, but this purple-haired princess can call me the moment she gets tired of the small fry, heh heh.
6) Jem (Jem)
She's like a pink-haired Debbie Harry. Jem and all of the Holograms are invited to my pool party. The pool party that I made up in my head in the early '90s, when I was just a little kid, probably already deeply in need of therapy.
5) Mulan (Mulan)
Mulan is brave, self-sacrificing, modest, and totally foxy. She goes through a lot of different costumes on her epic quest, but I have to say that I like her best in her butch phase.
4) Cheetara (Thundercats)
Some girls watched Thundercats for Lion-O, but for me, it was all about Cheetara. She can wield a staff and doesn't listen to those haters who say leopard print is out of style. Besides, nipples are overrated.
3) Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?)
Intensely, amazingly sexy - partly owing to a set of vital statistics that would be impossible for an actual human woman - perennial favorite Jessica Rabbit is clearly the most pneumatically entrancing of all the 2D babes.
2) Helga Sinclair (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
The woman for whom the phrase 'bitchy resting face' must have been invented, this villainous temptress has arm muscles like a fricking MMA fighter, look! She's blonde and dangerous and knows how to hold her own on the high seas.
1) She-Ra (She-Ra, Princess of Power)
Hands down the hottest 2D babe in the galaxy, here's She-Ra shooting sparks of pure joy from her enormous weapon, giving a new meaning to 'explosive climax', and conveniently providing the perfect finish to a sexy cartoon thrill ride.
Note: these are my own opinions, lady-fanciers! Add your own opinions but don't be gettin' mad that I like She-Ra better than Jessica Rabbit, I know I'm in a minority there!
Who's the hottest animated babe?
