15 Cartoon Characters it Would Be Cool to Be Friends With in Real Life

Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson

It would be great to have Homer Simpson as a friend, especially if you like donuts. Actually, maybe the opposite is true. Which is cool too. If you want a friend on hand to eat all the junk food before you do to help you get trim, Homer’s your man. He’d be funny to have alongside too, as long as you don’t have to trust him to actually do anything.

Captain Planet

Captain Planet

Captain Planet would be a great friend because you could feel good about yourself by association. He’s saving the planet while you’re offering moral support and basking in the warm glow of moral treatment of the Earth whilst not actually doing anything. Just as long as he keeps his hippie ideals at work.



Nanny

Nanny

It would be cool to be friends with Nanny if only just to know what her face looks like. And to ask her why she thought wearing purple and green together every episode was a good idea.

Batman

Batman

Imagine nipping down to the store for milk and bread in the Batmobile. It would be awesome. I’d spend so much money on bread and milk that I would barely be able to afford to fuel the Batmobile. Oh hang on, Bruce Wayne is richer than Bill Gates. To the Batmobile!



Fat Albert

Fat Albert

Fat Albert epitomises the term “jolly fat man”. It would be cool just to hear him say "Hey hey hey!" all the time and then watch on as confused people struggle to figure out whether he is trying to attract there attention to warn of imminent danger or merely an escape from the sanatorium.

Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse gets the nod for this list simply because of his iconic status. After all, it would seem a little strange to complete this list without his inclusion. But let’s be honest, he is a bit of a weirdo. I think if he materialised and grew another dimension, his voice would be so annoying I’d get Garfield.



Garfield

Garfield

A lazy, fat and cynical cat. Actually, I am not particularly fond of any of those things. I do like lasagne and coffee though, and I also hate Mondays; I’m sure we would get along just fine.

Barney Rubble

Barney Rubble

How could he not make this list? He is not just a loyal friend but also a bit of a hit with the ladies. Let’s be honest, Betty is pretty hot. You don’t pick up a girl like that without some skills so he would surely make a great wing man.



Patrick Star

Patrick Star

Everyone needs a friend who is doing nothing with his life and is always free to hang out. He might be a negative influence at times but the rest of the time he will no doubt make you feel better about yourself. Plus, he’s a starfish and that’s pretty crazy. How many real-life starfish do you know? None, that’s how many.

Bugs Bunny

Bugs Bunny

You couldn’t have a list like this without Bugs. A casual, insouciant vibe is what you need in a friend. It’s good for stress levels and you don’t get bogged down in the world’s problems. By being friends with Bugs, you can just hang out eating carrots and playing tricks on people. That’s a life that sounds preferable to many.



April O’Neill

April O’Neill

If brought to life in three dimensions she would probably be pretty hot and a nice girl to go with it. Everyone needs a companion in life and love. The only problem is you might find yourself pursued by jealous turtles who seem to be a little more adept in martial arts than your average reptile.

Boo Boo

Boo Boo

This little fella is bound to be the perfect side kick. Plus, we all need a voice of reason every now and then. If you listen to Boo Boo you will not get yourself in to half of the trouble that you normally might. Plus, he’s a bear and that’s pretty cool.



Randy Marsh

Randy Marsh

Randy would just be fun to be around if only to see what happens to him. Who doesn’t want a friend who has been awarded a Nobel Prize and on two occasions set a record for producing the world's largest piece of human excrement?

Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck

This guy is rich as hell. Whilst he is not known for being charitable and giving all his cash away. IF you can manage to get on his good side then you may just find yourself included in his will. When you manage this, all you have to do is chop his head off and sell him off to the local Chinese restaurant.



Inspector Gadget

Inspector Gadget

He might be an idiot but he can do a whole bunch of cool things. Imagine sitting down watching a game on television and you need another beer. “Hey Gadget, grab me another beer will ya”. And there it is. Just be careful not to give him anything that may self-destruct as things are little more permanent in the real world.
