I also really like the dark outline around the characters, again highlighting the cartoon feel. Also, note the almost rubbery, elongated ears, that to is an interesting and cool look as well. I also think the simple design of the clothes is cool as well. There is not such a importance of realize and that is one of the main factors of cartooning I like.

The Fight against Adult tyranny...The Kids Next Door
I am a big fan of animated series', especially those that have a cartoony feel. Though the creator of this cartoon was an animator, this image here still illustrates the main characters of the show. They characters were created by Tom Warborton, and what I like about the show and the characters are the design. They have very rounded shapes. Their faces, hands, body, and pretty much everything else is very round and soft. When I say soft, I mean they look like clean images, and since their is no appearance of rigid lines, or strong geometric shapes it gives them a look of softness. I love the slight bagginess of there close (the most in Number 4-orange hoody). Some of there bodies are either really skinny or thick, I like this variation between the characters (i.e. Green shirt to blue and brown pants characters).
