Top 10 Cartoon Hotties


Sizzlin' movie heartthrobs are totally easy to name, but my first boy crushes were on cartoon hotties. That's right—Tom Cruise, you have nothing on Handy Smurf. As an adult, I can still see the appeal of these animated cuties (maybe it helps that they're made to look like the actors voicing them too) so I thought I would submit a run down of the ten best-looking non-real boys I've sweated.

 

  1. Handy Smurf

Hefty Smurf might have been the obvious choice, but I'm not the kind of girl that falls for the weight-lifting, muscle-building type. Handy got his toned physique through hard manual labor, working on those smurfy houses in rain, snow, Gargamel-induced weather, or shine. And that pencil behind his ear and tongue sticking out the side of his mouth as he calculated the smurfiest way to solve a problem—adorable!

 

  1. Aladdin

I have always loved the class clown, and this dark and handsome charmer would have been perfect crush material. On top of that, he was super resourceful (those acrobatic moves to get food are so praiseworthy) and didn't let others' opinions of him (like when people called him “Street Rat”) get him down. Finally, he had the confidence and perseverance to go after Jasmine. Oh, and almost forgot, he had a magic carpet! What's better than that? 

     

  1. Prince Eric

Thump-thump, thump-thump. I still get dreamy thinking of Prince Eric and what might have been had Ariel not gotten her voice back.... I was in seventh grade when a friend had a sleepover to watch The Little Mermaid. I swear all the girls swooned at the sight of Prince Eric. That sense of humor, the dark hair, the romantic boat ride. And, he was voiced by Christopher Daniel Barnes who I still love.

 

  1. Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks

I know, I know. This one is a bit crazy. I mean he's not even a human—cartoon or otherwise. But, Alvin was so spunky. He was egotistical too but you had to admire his dedication to the band. And you gotta love a boy (or chipmunk) who can wear a dress and still look cuddly and adorable.

 

  1. Brainy Smurf

He was an annoying know-it-all, but I was going through my nerd lover stage. I was eight and wanted the boy with glasses in the top reading group. Forget about the guy who could capture the flag. I wanted the glasses-wearing cutie who got pulled out of class for the academically talented program. Brainy reminded me of him (but my guy wasn't blue and a little less of a smartypants).

 

  1. Eric (from Dungeons and Dragons)

Eric was my first bad boy crush. He was moody and quickly angered but just when you thought you had him figured out, he'd save you from the monsters. Then, he'd brush it off because being nice wasn't cool. I liked his hair too—black, neatly cut, a little long at the top—and was always drawn in to his adventures. Last, he had a pet unicorn. What girl doesn't love a guy who is loyal to his pets?

 

  1. Lion-O

At first glance, you may think Lion-O was another muscle man. But, oh no, dear readers, he was more than that. Part man, part lion, this leader of the Thundercats was put in charge before he was ready and had to use his skill to overcome struggles. So, brains AND beauty. Plus, he had that sword that summoned the rest of his lair and projected the awesome lion signal. Thunder, thunder, THUNDERCATS!

 

  1. Prince Adam/He-man

I just realized this is my only blonde dude on the list. He was the full package too. We have Adam who had the looks but was not overtly hot like He-Man. He had also been entrusted with the biggest secret of Grayskull, but he managed to look relaxed, lazy even—all the while knowing that saving the universe was all on him. Then, there was He-Man. The guy was brawn, strength, rode an awesome tiger, fought evil. Wanting him was easy. His desire to fight the bad guys with brains rather than fists was admirable as well. Sure, when he had to, he'd smack a guy but it wasn't his first choice. Usually, he just threw them out of his way. And the way he handled that sword...uh huh, he had the power.

 

  1. Rio Pacheco (Jem's boyfriend from Jem and the Holograms)

It takes a special guy to put up with a woman who lives a double life. Ok, he never realized Jem and Jerrica were the same person, but still. Furthermore, while he may have crushed on Jem, he knew Jerrica was his true love. In addition to his dark hair and hunkiness, Rio had no trouble hanging back from the spotlight and being a road manager and engineer. A guy who is all for women empowerment? Totally sexy!

 

  1. Iceman/Bobby Drake

Bobby Drake was my kind of dude. The dark locks, of course (um, I guess I have an obvious type, huh?) and toned bod, but I was more drawn to his sense of humor. Bobby was a laid back prankster who didn't take life too seriously. I guess he didn't have to since—whoosh—he could turn into ice when things got tough. Which brings me to his alter ego. I hate the cold, but since I could enjoy him from the comfort of my warm living room, I loved watching Iceman escape on his homemade ice ramps. Plus, ladies, this boy was transparent so no more trying to figure out what your dude was REALLY thinking. Now, THAT'S attractive!

I love it! What a great top 10 list.

My list would have to include Robin Hood--you know, the old Disney one--and probably Justin from the Secret of NIMH. And Prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty.

What a great idea for a list, and I really like some of your suggestions!

For my list I'd have to include Goliath and Xanatos from Gargoyles (and to even up the tables, add Elisa and Demona... actually that cast was pretty attractive as a whole), Prince Adam from Beauty and the Beast (either form, although I know a lot of girls prefer him all beastly), and Donatello from TMNT.

I was so excited to see others like TMNT. I was thinking of putting them on but then I was like, "I have Smurfs AND a chipmunk, people are going to think I have issues." LOL

If we step out of cartoons for a bit, I also have to add Tobias and Elfangor from Animorphs as the childhood crushes - one boy stuck as a bird, and an alien!

(Also, my preference was for Simon. It was always the smart ones, hence Donatello as well)

This list is awesome! I'm gonna add Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon to the mix. I mean, for one thing, his name is TUXEDO MASK; there is nothing sexier than being named after items of clothes you wear (see my new Nom de Plume, Yoga Pants Slipper Socks.) But seriously, dude was hot, silly name or no.

Eric from D&D FTW!!!

I also agree with kaerfel about Justin from NIMH and Robin Hood. Wow. I really thought there was something wrong with me for finding those guys attractive.

Also, Roger from 101 DALMATIANS is my favorite Disney (hu)man ever. You can have all the princes, give me Roger with his big nose and his clumsiness and his wickedly funny renditions of "Cruella DeVille" any day.

Jane Lane, Daria's artsy friend from that MTV cartoon was totally my type of girl.

This list is fun! I'm still cracking up...

I am embarrassed to admit -- which is why I do admit it all over the internet whenever cartoon crushes are mentioned -- but I have a crush on Anakin from The Clone Wars cartoon.

From my early-teen years, I have to second Eric and Aladdin. I also crushed on Raphael from TMNT. :-)

I crushed on Donatello. Crush - present tense. XD

My Clone Wars crush would have to be Kit Fisto, though.

I had a thing for Leonardo. He was TOTALLY the cutest Ninja Turtle.

This list is hilarious! I never thought of anybody having Smurf crushes before, but I'm starting to see what you mean. I wonder if there are any gay men among us who will cop to a crush on Vanity Smurf--a stereotypical portrayal, yes, but unless I'm mistaken, there were slim pickings on Saturday morning cartoons for the gay mens.

I had a huge crush on Daphne from Scooby Doo. I thought she was the prettiest and wanted to be just like her. Later, I thought the guy in Jem (Jem--she's truly outrageous!) was kind of cute, but it must not have been that big a deal, because I can't remember his name. Rico? He had purple hair.

LOVE Aladdin, too :) LOL. I also think Beast is adorable and hated when he turned into a "human"

Are you thinking of Riot, one of the guys from the boy band in Jem? I think he had purple hair. :-) I picked Rio up top. Jem had some good guys!

Oh yes--how did I miss that? So right about the female empowerment. He was a real role model, actually.

I was going to mention Rio. Supportive guys always make a huge impression on me as being hot.

Oh, I'm so loving Prince Eric. Yup.

Wow this post makes me feel so much better. I've been keeping my cartoon crushes secret for so long.

Though I think mine might be slightly more embarrassing - I have long loved Optimus Prime. Yes - the leader of the Transformers. Yes - he's a robot. And yes - I had a minor freak out when he became part of a new live action franchise.

Runners up - Gambit from X-Men and Prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty

No Dimitri from Anastasia? Come on! ;)

I scrolled down this whole list of comments and FINALLY someone mentioned Dimitri from Anastasia! He was a cutie, but John Cusack's voice made him my #1 crush... beating out Eric from The Little Mermaid.

All of this, and no mention of anyone from G.I Joe? I realize the movie was a turd, but can't Duke get any love? Or maybe Snake Eyes? You know, the strong silent type who can defend you with ninja stars?

Um, that was me, but it showed up anonymous. I'm not a lurker, I promise.

I can def. see how those would make it on, but I only included characters from stuff I've seen hence the Anastasia upset. Haha. I should add a section called "Cartoon Hotties I've Never Seen" :-)
