There are a lot of cartoon characters I love, and each I love for different reasons, but I wanted to make a list of my top five. I was going to do my top ten but I didn't feel like choosing five more, so we're going with top five. And here we go!

5) Vincenzo "Vinny" Santorini (Atlantis The Lost Empire)

I loved Vinny. I loved everything about him. Maybe it was his deadpan outlook on life, or his sarcasm, or even just his love of explosives and explosions, but a mild-mannered flower shop owner turned mercenary demolition expert is a pretty awesome career change if you ask me.

4) Huey Duck (Quack Pack)

Being the "oldest" of Donald's triplet nephews, (who actually ARE triplets, in case you were wondering!), Huey has been the de facto leader of the gang even since their younger days. As the boys have gotten older, Huey has become more and more of a ladies' duck and as far as snarkiness is concerned, he's basically the anthropomorphic duck version of Tony Stark.

3) Daffy Duck (Looney Tunes)

How do you describe this guy? He's here! He's there! He's everywhere! Sassy, insane, and unpredictable as all get out, Daffy Duck has been one of my favorites pretty much since I started watching cartoons. I can't think of a single quote from him or any other character portrayed by him that hasn't been pure comedic gold.

2) Raphael (TMNT, 2003 edition)

Hotheaded, sarcastic, and prone to diving headfirst into a situation without thinking, the 2003 version of Raph eerily reminded me of someone: me. I also loved that he was the only one of the turtles who was able to even hold a candle to Mikey when it came to coming up with quippy one-liners during the heat of combat.

1) Warp Darkmatter (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command)

I know I talk about Warp an awful lot, but he's really one of my all-time favorites. I mean the guy is just so awesome on so many levels. Cool gear, metal arm, sarcasm that could give Raph and Mikey a run for their money, what's not to love? Oh, and if that's not enough, he owns his own vacation planet, so there's that too.

Well, that's it! Thoughts?
