Favorite Female Animated Heroines

As I was coming up with my list for my Favorite Female Heroines Growing Up post, I realized a couple of characters I had come up with were animated. This caused me to create a separate list of cartoon, female characters from my childhood that I looked up to.

Powerpuff Girls

I loved the Powerpuff girls growing up. Me and my friend would play pretend in her backyard and run around saving the world. I would always be Blossom while my friend was always Bubbles. Poor Buttercup would be left unchosen. I think neither of us wanted to be Buttercup because we thought she was mean when really Buttercup stood up for herself.

Kim Possible

I don’t think there is a need to explain Kim Possible and why she’s on this list.

Sandy Cheeks

I had asked my fiance if I was missing anyone while creating this list. He suggested Sandy Cheeks. His reasoning was Sandy’s intelligent, inventive, and helps Spongebob on various occasions. I thought it was an interesting choice and one I probably would have picked myself.

Charlotte Pickles – Rugrats

I had a Rugrats VHS with some of the episodes from one of the seasons. My dad would have to constantly re-wind it because me and my brother would watch it all the time. I remember being disgusted at the episode where Tommy’s grandpa falls asleep and bugs crawl into his mouth. Anyway, Charlotte Pickles is Angelica’s mom and is a boss. This clip should give you extra context as to why she is on this list.

Fiona

Shrek came out twenty years ago which makes me feel my age. Fiona is a great pick for this list. She’s spunky, brave, and she wants better for herself.

Cartoons and animation were a big part of my childhood. I was surprised when brainstorming this list how many female animated characters existed. Let me know who your favorite animated heroes are down in the comments.

  1. There was a Canadian TV show called Atomic Betty about a girl who fought aliens, and I loved that show so much. I thought Betty was so cool and her adventures were so wild.
