Top Five Green Cartoon Characters
Some say it's not easy being Green, but we're not so sure. Here's a reminder to go green this Earth Day with a look at our favorite green cartoon characters.
#5. Mike Wazowski
Mike and his friend Sully starred in Monsters Inc. and scare children like it’s their job (which it actually is). If you weren’t paying attention, you might mistake this green guy for a tennis ball, but tennis balls don’t have one huge eye in the middle of their face, or horns, arms and legs. After the success of Monsters Inc. Mike got used to the spotlight and made guest appearances on other Pixar hits Finding Nemo and Toy Story.
#4. The Incredible Hulk
Dr. Bruce Banner’s alter-ego was given superhuman strength and turned green by a blast of gamma rays. Originally featured in Marvel Comics in 1962, The Hulk has been busy since, starring in two TV Series, an animated series and two big-screen movies, one, called The Incredible Hulk, is one of the summer’s most anticipated films. The Hulk likes to smash things, so box office records might be his next target.
You’ve gotta love this big green ogre. Through three hilarious movies we’ve seen Shrek rescue a princess from a fire-breathing dragon, marry Fiona after foiling an evil scheme concocted by Prince Charming and his mom, The Fairy Godmother, and rule the kingdom of Far, Far Away while King Harold was sick, all while making us fall out of our seats with laughter.
#2. The Grinch
He’s a mean one, but he’s a green one too. Dr. Suess’ classic Christmas villain, whose heart is three sizes too small, hates the Whos and will do anything to stop them from having a festive Christmas down in Whoville. Even though he’s one of the world’s best bad boys, you can’t help but feel a little sorry for this grouchy green guy who lives all alone in the mountains with his little dog Max.
#1. Kermit the Frog
Kermit the Frog is the man er... frog. Since 1955 this little green fella has entertained the world on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, starred in over 15 movies, and made guest appearances on shows like American Idol and Extreme Makeover Home Edition! He’s taken his share of bullying from Ms. Piggy, but this frog always gets back up to share some of his swamp learned wisdom, or sing a song like his classic tune Bein’ Green. He’s even got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
