No, stop. These cartoon characters are not actually getting canceled. Although, yes, they are getting canceled on Twitter for problematic content. A hashtag called #CancelACartoonCharacter is trending on Twitter and people have been using it to voice their concerns regarding the content of the cartoons. It is alright to cancel a few of them, but some of the tweets are absolutely hilarious. It all began when Pepe Le Pew did not make it to the Pace Jam sequel. The character is known for sexually harassing the female characters in the show and was thus canceled. Here is a list of 24 cartoon characters that people on Twitter have ‘canceled’ after Pepe Le Pew:
1. Herbert from Family Guy
— Snoop Joshy Josh (@JoshMarino420) March 8, 2021
One of the many cartoon characters that were “canceled” on Twitter was Herbert from Family Guy. Viewers call him pervert because of which he already has a nickname ‘Herbert the Pervert’. The show is based on pedophilic humor. He seduces kids to come into his house to the basement with candies and lures them in. This is problematic and hence, the cancellation.
2. Patrick Star from SpongeBob SquarePants
— Bloody Pikachu: The Squeakquel (@RegionRione) March 8, 2021
Patrick star is another famous cartoon that got trending on Twitter. The reason why he got canceled was because he is believed to have killed at least one person: the person he is holding upside down in his license. Twitter began this hashtag on a serious note. However, it became sarcastic and then, just funny.
3. Dale Gribble from King of the Hill
— H.D.Frankenstein (@HDFrankenstein) March 8, 2021
While Twitter’s cancel culture for cartoons is for various hilarious reasons, you must see this. Dale Gribble is getting canceled because of an ‘assumption’. The Twitter user believes Gribble was involved in the storming of the Capitol. And why not? He is in fact a gun fanatic and a bounty hunter. Who knows, he might be a Trump supporter too.
4. Angelica from Rugrats
— 35 Where?! (@the1jwash86) March 8, 2021
The users talk about canceling Angelica from Rugrats too. Why? For being a Karen before Karens existed. She is not only the villain in the show, she is also a spoiled brat. Angelica doesn’t care about anything but herself. She is mean and pathetic and not-so-smart. Her character is spoilt, selfish and goes around throwing tantrums for fun.
5. Roshan from Ice Age
— jules ♥ (@itsCrypticJet) March 9, 2021
Roshan from Ice Age also got canceled. Do you want to know why? No reason, the Twitter users just don’t like him.

Although there is nothing wrong with him, he is just not desired enough.
6. Christ McLean from Total Drama Island
— Toon4Thought (@Toon4Thought) March 8, 2021
Chris McLean has 22 cases of child abuse. How? He organizes competitions for children and creates trouble for them. He is the main antagonist of the show. And guess what? He lives up to that reputation. He makes it difficult for all the children through his challenges. McLean actually had it coming, he hurt the children and so, he deserved the cancelation.
7. Danny Phantom from Danny Phantom
— Saarah (@Nicktoongrl) March 8, 2021
One of the cartoon characters is Danny Phantom. Danny Phantom has been rightly canceled on Twitter. The hashtag is accompanied with his picture escaping the girls’ locker room. Given all the harassing and invasion of privacy, he deserved it.
8. Winnie the Pooh from Winnie the Pooh
— Barny Shergold (@barnyshergold) March 8, 2021
Every tweet with the hashtag was something unique and hilarious. Look at this picture of Winnie the Pooh stealing honey. Winnie the Pooh was tweeted for burglary and rightly so. The picture is evidence enough of the many times that he stole honey.
