I love those cartoon characters who are grumpy and depressed…


Do you love cartoons? I absolutely do. However, I think when most people think of cartoons they think of funny, silly stuff. What I love are the depressed, angry, grumpy, slightly emo characters…

  • Those like Eeyore, who walk around like they are on the verge of suicide, but are just too lazy to actually do it.
  • Wile E. Coyote who is so darn smart but seems to have really ticked off the powers that control nature and gravity. (I really wish I could see an episode where Wile catches that bird, roasts him and then tears him limb from limb with a fork and eats the stupid thing.)
  • Lucy, who likes to snatch the football away at the last minute and laugh, or Charlie Brown, who falls for the same trick over and over and then wonders what the heck is wrong with him.
  • Scar, who can look around and honestly say, “I am surrounded by idiots.”
  • Oscar the Grouch, who would rather live in a trashcan than share a house or apartment on a street where everyone is so dang HAPPY all the time.
  • Grumpy, who not only was cursed to be a stinking dwarf, but has to live his life with two guys named Dopey and Sneezy hanging around.
  • Garfield, who just wants to sleep and eat, but occasionally makes time for exercise by kicking Odie off the table.
  • Daria…whom most of you may have forgotten or never watched…but always represented the melancholy ideal for me.
  • Butters, who inevitably takes the blame for everything anyone ever does, and Kenny, who is always being slaughtered in one way or another (at least the constant killing never got him down for long).

Of course, this list could go on and on, but I think I got the general idea across. So do you relate to those who are downtrodden, grumpy and miserable too or do you love a different kind of cartoon character? Feel free to comment and leave your thoughts below!

  1. Reblogged this on Maranda Russell and commented:

    Feeling grumpy today, so thought I’d share this old post from way back in 2013! This post is one that gets frequent traffic, even though the likes and comments on it are not high. Most of the traffic it gets are from Google searches. I would love it if you guys showed it a little love with a few more likes and comments if you relate!


  2. I’m actually glad you reposted this one from 2013. It made me think of all the times when people would say I resembled that of Eeyore. (Hahaha… Only if they had known I was suicidal back when). I think nowadays I am more like Garfield with respects to be sarcastic and can’t be bothered attitude, not with others, but with myself.
    I love cartoons too. My favorites are Warner Brothers. I love Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, again…sarcasm. It can’t be helped. Although I am a fairly nice person, the sarcasm slips out at times. I think I got that from my mother. LOL! But, it’s more like a wicked little sarcasm, not a malicious one.

    1. I love Looney Tunes too. My favorite character (besides Wile E. Coyote) is Sylvester and Sylvester’s son. I think my favorite episode ever though is The Abominable Snow Rabbit. “I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him…”

      1. I know exactly whih episode you talking about. I named a hamster George based n that one. LOL!
        My favorite one was “Rabbit Season, Duck Season” I laugh every time Daffy Duck yells out, “I’m a a fidler crab, shoot me now!”, and he gets shot, and his bill flips upward.😂 🤣
