Whether our parents liked it or not, sometimes cartoons in the ’80s and ’90s did more than just entertain us; they helped us realize how we felt about women. Here are the animated ladies who made us wish we lived in Toon Town instead of Awkward Puberty-ville.

1. Lola Bunny (“Space Jam”)

This bunny ran circles around the Looney Toons gang. Plus, she looks way better in a dress than Bugs ever did.

2. Cheetara (“ThunderCats”)

She’s fast, she’s furious and she can kick Mumm-Ra’s ass with or without the help of Lion-O. She’s PURRFECT.

3. The Nanny (“Muppet Babies”)

Something about those stockings made us wonder what was going on higher up than the camera ever showed.

4. The Baroness (“G.I. Joe”)

She’s smart, sexy and tough as nails. The perfect combination to make any solider fall in love line.

5. Aeon Flux (“Aeon Flux”)

This sexy assassin wore basically nothing while she took down her targets. The future is hot!

6. Harley Quinn (“Batman: The Animated Series”)

She’s quirky, she’s loyal and most importantly, she loves a weirdo.

7. April O’Neil (“TMNT”)

This fiery redhead wasn’t afraid to get dirty (in the sewers). Plus, she looks amazing in that yellow jumpsuit. Cowabunga!

8. Ariel (“The Little Mermaid”)

Another beautiful redhead. She doesn’t say much, but the clamshell bikini does the talking for her.

9. Jasmine (“Aladdin”)

The Disney princess who made us want to rub more than just our lamp. Aladdin’s one lucky street urchin.

10. Jessica Rabbit (“Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”)

Undeniably the sexiest cartoon of all time. Not that we’re still¬†attracted to animated characters. Ha! Ha! That would be…weird.
