    After Greatest Character Ever, the biggest greatest thread in history, I thought that I was never going to host another greatest thread. But now that I'm at the end, and I'm seeing how some of the results played out, I'm getting an itch to host a re-do of the first greatest thread ever. This is the one that applies the most to Toonzone itself: Greatest Cartoon Character Ever. Right now, I'm posting the nomination thread in advance. Follow the rules for this one carefully.
    • To begin with, every person may only nominate 10 characters.
    • You may only nominate 1 character per show/movie. If it's something like the main group of Disney characters (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc.), that rule applies. Only nominate one from that group.
    • Certain characters may be paired together, if that's the only way that their characters work. (Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum, Pinky & The Brain, etc.)
    • There will be NO anime or comic book characters allowed. I know this is a tough one for some people, but here's my reasoning. The difference between comic books, anime, and cartoons is huge, as is the difference between the fans. In this competition, I want the playing field to be even. I am only going to allow North American animation, since anime is a tough critera to pinpoint.
    Any questions, feel free to ask. Go ahead and start nominating.

    I have a question. You say no comic book characters, but what about comic book characters that had iconic or popular incarnations in a cartoon? Like Mark Hamill's Joker, to give an example?

    -Wacko(Animaniacs)
    -Droopy
    -Elmer Fudd
    -Bender(Futurama)
    -Fred Fredburger(The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy)
    -Cat and Dog(Catdog)
    -Rocko(Rocko's Modern Life)
    -Garfield(This one is iffy. I didn't want to leave him out in case he would be allowed, but I can change it if he's considered a comic character. I know he had cartoons, but I'll wait for your judgment)
    -Noah(Total Drama)
    -Mojo Jojo(Powerpuff Girls)

    So, what about Gargoyles? It isn't based off a comic (though there is a comic based on it), so is that allowed?

    Helga G. Pataki
    Tommy Pickles
    Denzel Crocker
    Shaggy Rogers
    T.J. Detweiler (is that spelled right?)
    David Xanatos (assuming Gargoyles is all right)
    Sheen Estevez
    Stitch
    Homer Simpson
    Danny Fenton/Danny Phantom

    Also, does Avatar count as anime? I mean, it really isn't.... It's too American to be anime.... I call it Amerime. :anime:

    Yeah, anime is a really loose definition. Is it just Japan? What about Korean animation? Co-operative productions like Seven Cities of Gold? American shows with a heavy anime influence and Japanese company animation, like the Boondocks? Other foreign studios making shows in the same style (like Totally Spies and the other ones that company makes)?

    Nope. Thing is, when I allow them to be nominated at all, chances are we'll get a ton of comic characters from "animation" and people will vote for them as if it were every adaption.

    Edit: Oh, and I'm going to have to say no to Garfield since he's a comic strip character. The same applies to Peanuts, among others.

    Gargoyles is fine since it didn't begin as a comic. As for Avatar, even though I love it, I'm going to have to say no. I shouldn't make exceptions, and it technically is anime regardless of the country. I don't know much about anime to tell you the truth, but I'm thinking that I want to count out any anime from any country or company to be fair.

    But Avatar isn't anime! Anime is, by definition, Japanese.

    Hm. I really don't know to tell you the truth. I'm open to other opinions. Any anime experts who want to tell me if Avatar should be legal?

    I watch a lot of Anime
    Avatar The Last Airbender is a cartoon with anime art style so it should be allow to be in the tournament because it's not made in Japan

    I agree with the above. Avatar started in America and only has anime style like Teen Titans did.

    I think it would be a lot easier to just go with greatest American Cartoon Character. It would count out some British and French stuff, unfortunately, but it's a lot easier to specify what IS American than what is NOT anime.

    YES! I can't wait for this to start. And Avatar should be counted as okay. It's one of my pet peeves when people all it anime. :shrug:

    Rainbow Dash (MLP: Friendship is Magic) Johnny, seeing your avatar, could you nominate Fluttershy as well? She's my second fave. :p
    Octus (Sym-Bionic Titan)
    Izzy (Total Drama)
    Fiskerton (The Secret Saturdays) Again, can someone else nominate Argost? Awesome villain!
    Mordecai (Regular Show)
    Eduardo (Foster's)
    Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
    Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
    Cosmo (The Fairly OddParents)

    And I'll save my last pick for when we can pick Avatar characters. ;)

    Alright then, I guess it'll be American only. That means that Avatar is fair game. I'll still count Canadian shows/movies if they aired in the U.S. btw.

    And ShadowStar, I'm not allowing Batman, or any animated characters that originated with comic books. So you have 5 nominations left.
