I know you’ve all heard of Twitter by now. And if you’re a regular reader, you’ll know we can’t get enough of our 4mations twitter account. It’s a great way to chat to other animators round the globe, get the latest animation gossip, and waste some precious time.
After some light relief? Try following our top 10 cartoon characters on Twitter:
1. Spongebob Squarepants
Bio: Daily affirmations from everyone’s favorite sea sponge!
Sample tweet: “Nothing floods a room faster than a sobbing teenage whale.”
4mations verdict: He’s weird, he’s yellow, and this summer he’s 10 years old. This official Spongebob is a must-follow.
Bio: none, but he needs no introduction.
Sample tweet: “sitting on a tree”
4mations verdict: That’s also his only tweet. But then he was always a creature of few words.
3. Ariel Mermaid
Bio: What up I’m Princess Ariel, daughter of Triton (T-Dawg). I gots 6 sistas. Word to my boys Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle.
Sample tweet: “devotin full time 2 floatin…unda tha c u poor unfortunate souls.”
4mations verdict: Dat Ariel be one fine half fish half human, yo. True dat, true dat.
4. Steve and Dave the Dinosaurs
Bio: We are 2 dinosaurs, struggling to make sense of the modern world
Sample tweet: “Fish finger sandwich: bread, fish, finger, fish, finger, bread. And BBQ sauce.”
4mations verdict: OK, we’re biased because they’re 4mations very own resident dinosaurs. And for some reason they’re very popular with the ladies.
5. Homer Simpson
Bio: I work at a nuclear power plant. Married with two kids and a baby.
Sample tweet: “The air smells like mustard today.”
4mations verdict: He’s trying to make #homersimpson a trending topic, but he’s no good at this computer stuff. D’oh.
Bio: Dark Knight. Superhero.
Sample tweet: “Have been hearing reports of giant killer robots masked as vehicles. Sounds like the Toymaker’s work. Must investigate further.”
4mations verdict: He may not be the official Batman, but he’s dark, intense, and brooding. As irritating as the real thing.
7. Bugs Bunny
Bio: None, but you’ll recognize him by his hugely inflated ego and trademark carrot.
Sample tweet: “Bdah bdah…Whats up doc?”
4mations verdict: Makes us want to go all Elmer Fudd on his furry little tail.
8. South Park
Bio: The official home of the South Park television series
Sample tweet: “I ain’t goin’ to space jail!”
4mations verdict: Not strictly speaking a cartoon character, but a must for all South Park fans.
9. The Powerpuff Girls
Bio: none - probably too young to have bios.
Sample tweet: “we have been in tokiyo defeating mojojojo AGAIN!”
4mations verdict: Follow them, but don’t mess with them.
10. Bloo Q. Kazoo
Bio: I love paddleballs, and I am the best imaginary friend ever! Oh, I also have a great creator named Mac.
Sample tweet: “it is hot….its HOT hot hooooot! in To-peek-aaa….”
4mations verdict: He’s blue, shaped like a door, and really irritating. Thankfully he’s only imaginary.
