I think the reason cartoons were so popular back in the 80’s and 90’s was because they were funnier, more educational and had skimpily dressed characters. The last one’s most important because as we know, anything close to sex always sells. You may or may not recognize some of these characters but you can definitely understand why they were made; to push kids into puberty. Some of these characters are disgusting while others are plain beautiful. Let’s take a look:
Jeannie is a magical genie who travels with her master, Corey Anderson. She can conjure, just like any other genie you’ve ever seen but the added advantage is that she looks good doing it. I knew I had to include Jeannie in this post because I still haven’t gotten her image out of my head ever since I was a kid and I watched Scooby Doo: Mystery in Persia for the first time. She makes the movie so much better.
7. Jessica Rabbit
Disney has a way of making their women really attractive, and Jessica Rabbit is no exception. Wife of Roger Rabbit, Jessica Rabbit first appears in the 1998 movie ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’. Jessica looks scintillating in her red dress cut up to her thighs, her long red hair and vivacious curves. But contrary to her looks, she’s wholly dedicated to Roger Rabbit, whom she absolutely adores. She marries him because he “makes her laugh” and she even says he’s better than many classic Disney characters like Goofy. Now that’s true love.
6. Cow and Chicken
Cow and Chicken was a relatively famous show from back in the 90’s. Envisioned by David Feiss in the early 80’s, Cow and Chicken made its first appearance in 1995 after which it was blown up into a full time television show. It features a gigantic nude cow and a funny looking chicken which get into all sorts of predicaments. Cow and chicken was hilarious back in the day but they only made 52 episodes until its reruns began. Cow and Chicken was replaced by Tom and Jerry in India because the cow is a sacred animal in these parts.
5. I R Baboon
No, I’m not just pulling up random animals from the past. I R Baboon was a part of I Am Weasel, a show which ran alongside Cow and Chicken. Baboon was an obnoxious…baboon with a giant, red butt sticking out it’s back. It was a stupid, revolting creature which had its finger in its nose most of the time. Baboon had a rivalry with Weasel and they would always compete for the strangest things. But like Cow and Chicken, it ran successfully for a few years.
Pokemon never promote nudity or profanity but there might have been one particular episode which didn’t sit well with parents. In Misty’s Tears, Misty is topless with her staryu close to her chest. While nothing explicit was displayed, it sent parents into a rage and got this particular title banned. The episode was later remade and aired without hassles. But it’s fun to see just how over protective parents are of their kids.
3. Wonder Woman
I don’t have to explain why Wonder Woman made it to this list. She has to be the hottest animated character ever made. But Wonder Woman was a princess of nobility. She would never do anything to compromise her womanhood. That doesn’t stop people for fantasizing about her all the time. In fact, Wonder Woman will make her first large screen appearance in Justice League, 2016-17. For reasons completely explainable, I’m sure that movie’s going to attract the thickest of crowds.
2. Jasmine (1992)
Not to give anything away but Jasmine is the last female character on this list. Almost the entire movie had her dressed to a bare minimum. The only scene in which she wasn’t partially nude is the one where she has to cloak herself to escape from the castle. Almost every other scene has her running around under the cold night sky in nothing more than a bikini top and transparent harem pants. No issue here, Jasmine’s always been my favorite.
1. Tarzan (1999)
Tarzan climbs his way to the top of the almost naked list, wearing a leather thong and…no that’s it. He swings that thing around everywhere, and also swings his thong along. I’m surprised he isn’t covered in leeches and spreading diseases to all his gorilla friends. I’m just kidding. Tarzan was one of the greatest animated movies, but I’m not contributing his looks to that (thankfully).
