The Peanuts gang returns in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

The Peanuts gang returns in It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Getting right to the point, it’s not Halloween until Snoopy says so. The same can be said for several other holidays, from Christmas to Thanksgiving. And no matter what kind of argument you use against the point, the fact remains: the holiday just doesn’t feel like the holiday unless you get to experience the Peanuts special, just like you did the year before, and the year before ...

Scariest Cartoon Characters #1: The Joker

« Back Re-scare at #20»   ToonBarn’s selection as the scariest cartoon character of all time is none other than the Joker. Creepy. Dark. Evil. Scary like you wouldn’t believe. Funny. …funny? Well, yes, actually. Very. That’s the problem with the Joker, you can’t help but like him. At least, until he kills you. Then, the jokes on you, and this one ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #2: Chernabog

« Back Next »   The second scariest cartoon character of all time is the black god demon from Fantasia, Chernabog. Though he ranks so high on the list, He is oddly not very well known. It is possible that the world of cartoons thought he was SO scary that they could only bring him around in rare occasions — otherwise they’d all die of fright! If you don’t know the ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #3: Maleficent

« Back Next »   ToonBarn’s third scariest cartoon character is Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty. A dark fairy and self-proclaimed “mistress of all evil”, Maleficent is not only a difficult name to say, but an incredibly scary one, as well! She’s so vindictively bad that she curses Aurora, a young princess, to die before the sun sets on her 16th birthday. No party ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #4: The Shredder

« Back Next »   Everyone knows and loves the Ninja Turtles. TMNT has been around for 25 years now, and though they’ve been through a number of changes and different series, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael have always been around to fight crime and kick shell in one form or another. But with every bright light, there is a dark shadow. And, in the case of the ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #5: Gargamel

« Back Next »   At the mere appearance of Gargamel, 5th on our list, evil music begins to play in your head. That’s the sound of scary! The smurfs are these lovable, happy, little blue… things. People? I’m not sure. Whatever they are, they’re tiny, they live in villages made out of mushrooms and toadstools, and they’re peaceful. So, everything should ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #6: Hades

« Back Next »   Hades, from Hercules, is an easy choice for #6. I mean, it’s difficult to be scarier than the devil, and ruler of every deceased and creepy soul. Voiced by James Woods, Hades, leader of Greek Mythology’s Underworld, is a pretty scary guy. First off, he’s a god, and has all the power that comes with it. Secondly, he’s evil! Everything he does ...


Scariest Cartoon Characters #7: Skeletor

« Back Next »   He’s big and strong, despite his pale blue body. He wields an enormous, magical sword. He has a sorcerer’s ability to tap into dark magic. And… well to put it bluntly, he’s got the face of a skull!! It’s difficult to not be afraid of Skeletor, the Evil Lord of Destruction, and 7th on our list. As a dark magician, with superhuman ...
