Classic Cartoon Moms
Mother's Day is just around the corner! To honor all of the great moms out there, Kidzworld takes a look at some classic cartoon moms.
Wilma Flintstone met her husband Fred at a resort where she worked as a waitress and he was a bell hop. Soon they got married and Wilma took care of their humble prehistoric home with gadgets including a baby elephant vacuum cleaner and a pelican washing machine. Then Wilma became the first animated character to become pregnant and gave birth to her daughter, Pebbles. A classic, caring mom, Wilma was the rock in the family, taking care of the home, finding time to volunteer in the Bedrock community, and most importantly, staying level-headed while dealing with Fred's hare-brained schemes.
Like other Fairy Godmothers in Fairy Tales, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother shows up just in time to help her attend the ball, even though her wicked stepmother left at home with a long list of difficult chores. Using her magic, Fairy Godmother turns her rags into a beautiful dress, turns the mice into horses, changes Major the horse into the coachman, and of course transforms a pumpkin into an incredible stagecoach to take her to the ball so she can meet the Prince and live happily ever after. After all, what more do mothers want for their children than a happy ending?
Lois Griffin is Peter's wife, and mom to Meg, Chris, and Stewie. This former Miss Teen Rhode Island fell in love with Peter when he was working at their Country Club, even though her wealthy parents didn't approve. Lois teaches piano from home while taking care of the kids, and has numerous hidden talents which pop up from time to time and give clues about her life before she had a family. All together, she's a complex, modern mom who is the anchor of her mildly dysfunctional family.
Like many mothers in the animal kingdom, from the time Bambi was born, his mom only cared about providing and protecting him through the cold winter months as he learned about the world around him and grew into a young deer. Unfortunately, before winter was gone, Bambi's mother sensed the presence of Man and told Bambi to run, saving him. When Bambi can't find her, Bambi's father, the Prince of the Forest, appears and tells him his mother is gone. She sacrificed her life for her little son so that he could live and become the next great Prince.
Known for her huge blue hair, Marge Simpson definitely deserves a Mother of the Year award for putting up with Homer and Bart. Not to mention the fact that she still has to help Lisa deal with her problems and watch out to make sure little Maggie doesn't crawl into some trouble. Marge is an excellent cook, known for her pork chops, and she's also a talented painter. She was even a police officer for a short time. Always the patient and forgiving wife to Homer, Marge proves that love heals all wounds, and that family is the most important thing at the end of the day.
