About This Quiz

Disney introduced the world to many iconic cartoon characters, but they don't have the market cornered. From "The Angry Beavers" to "CatDog," there are plenty of them to go around in movies, TV, comic books and video games. Why do we like cartoons so much? Artists take the best features of our favorite animals and enlarge their eyes, give them extra-intense facial expressions and make them simply fun (and funny) to look at! 

The Walt Disney Company popularized the trend of animated cartoons with Micky Mouse in 1928. So influential was this mighty mascot that in 1978 Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Not to be outdone by a mouse, Warner Bros. contracted Leon Schlesinger to produce animated musical shorts that used Warner Brothers' huge musical collection. Schlesinger Productions gave us Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, the Tasmanian Devil and many others. 

Since then, cartoons have kept evolving to bring us favorites like Scooby Doo, Hello Kitty, GIR (from "Invader ZIM") and other silly characters. Sit back and recall all your Saturday mornings spent eating a bowl of cereal and watching your favorite cartoons, by taking this quiz now. Go ahead and match the cartoon character to the animal it was based on ... it's easy!
