Top 10 List of TV Cartoon Villains (6-10)

6.    Eric Cartman – South Park

Eric Cartman is the ultimate bigot.  He has that worst of all combinations:  Bloated arrogance without confidence.  

7.    Mr. Burns – The Simpsons


To best appreciate how evil Mr. Burns is it is essential to read the lyrics to "See My Vest" in the "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds" episode; a satire on Cruela DeVille in 101 Dalmatians".  Here is an excerpt

Like my loafers? Former gophers –

It was that or skin my chauffeurs,

But a greyhound fur tuxedo

Would be best

8.    Muttley – Wacky Races 


Muttley, Dick Dastardly's dog, is my choice because, while Mr. Dastardly is a parody of every early 20th century villain, Muttley is unique.  His delight in doing evil plus his weird muted snicker make him a satisfying villain.

9.    Plankton – Sponge Bob Square Pants


Is Plankton a true villain?  He is, yet he is so tiny and, well, so pathetic in his inability to steal the Crabby Patty recipe.  Still, he sees himself as a villain and enjoys a good "Wa-ha-ha." 

10.    Marvin the Martian - Looney Tunes


I guess from Marvin's point of view he is a loyal Martian attempting to blow up Earth, his planet's rival.   Yes, he is a villain but not to Martians.  And so, we close with Marvin in our number 10 spot.
