17 People Get Real About The Cartoon Characters They Crushed On


During my adolescence, my biggest cartoon crush was, without a doubt, Storm from X-Men, the animated series.

She was a strong, stoic female character and arguably the the most powerful X-Men member regarding her mutant ability. She had long white hair (complete with unruly '80s volume), skin the colour of chocolate milk (my favourite childhood beverage) and wore dangerously high heels despite them being unreasonable attire for violent encounters.

Second to Storm on my podium of animated super heroines was the powerful Amazonian warrior, Wonder Woman. She, too, was the strong, silent type. And in some cases, she would also don inappropriate footwear for battle (This obviously was something I found attractive. Why? Not sure).

I actually owe my sexual awakening to Wonder Woman. Well, sort of -- I really owe it to The O.C., when Summer Roberts dressed up as Wonder Woman in the pool house and role played for Seth on Christmas. Holy shit, that was hot.

Ever since that wondrous moment on television, Rachel Bilson has remained my celebrity crush, despite not doing much with her acting career aside from a tween show on the CW that I've never seen (Rachel, you're my celebrity free pass -- call me).

But who are your cartoon character crushes? I asked on various forms of social media and received responses from all ages and walks of life. Here's what they said.
