    Favorite animated character of all time is transformers the movie! Hotrod and bumblebee!

  • Mike Moreno

    Marvin the Martian because he’s out of this world!

  • Ren Hoëk from “Ren and Stimpy,” the first two seasons. His character was something I’d never seen on tv before, and he had a full range of emotions and animation styles (close up gross outs!). The irreverence, the melodrama, the anguish, the bizarre and surreal – he took them all in stride. An angry, freaked out, desperate-to-be-loved stride.

    Courage, Courage the Cowardly Dog. Because of the things we do for love. . .

  • andy.gallows

    Cowboy and Indian from A Town Called Panic because they look like little figurines I can imagine myself playing with.

  • themollymitch

    Roger Rabbit for President!

  • No-Face from Spirited Away. That guy…

  • Greta Scheing

    Aeon Flux – The character design is killer but also the exaggerated way that she moves really emphasizes the fact that she is powerful, crafty, aggressive and sexual. That show made me younger me interested in animation

    Congrats to Sarah and Pedro for winning tickets!
