Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
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.

This bunny ran circles around the Looney Toons gang. Plus, she looks way better in a dress than Bugs ever did.
Everyone knows that star QBs can score big-time babes, but "game managers" seem to be doing pretty well, too. Alex Smith's wife Elizabeth is a former Oakland Raiders cheerleader and a current 9.5. Smith has been sneakily productive in fantasy this year, averaging 19.25 points per game, and I predict that he'll have a big game against his wife's former employer, the Raiders. Smith goes for 24.5 to bring their combined couple score to 34 pts.
Our final autumn Instagram roundup includes some of Miss Aquilino's "Girl Code" co-stars. These ladies make us laugh every week while they let us in on the secrets of the other Code. We finally feel like we understand the women around us. Well, sort of. We will never fully understand women. But we certainly enjoy their Instagram photos:
With 2013 soon fading into memory, we wanted to show some love to the ladies who helped us kill countless hours while glued to our flat screens. With the ability to render our favorite female characters in such high definition, it’s no wonder why sales of next-generation gaming consoles are through the roof.
Whether they're helping us take down a wanted terrorist or stepping into the ring to kick some ass, the one thing they all have in common is how great they look while in action.

Are you a guy who just loves to date the spoiled, rebellious type with daddy issues? Then Tracey is your girl. We liked her because of her rough exterior and her ability to get in trouble once in awhile. The back tattoo didn't hurt either.
Back in August, Melanie Iglesias gave mankind a super early Christmas present by licking ice cream on YouTube for one spectacular minute. We probably don't have to remind you, because it's permanently seared into your memory. But since today's Friday and you deserve a frozen treat, here it is again...
Stick around for our final autumn Instagram collection tomorrow when we round up photos from the "Girl Code" girls. Come on now, we couldn't leave the rest of those fine ladies out. For now, enjoy Miss Aquilino's best fall photos:
"Defense wins championships" doesn't normally apply to fantasy football, but a pick six from your D could be the difference in securing you a playoff birth. Green Bay's defense has looked atrocious the past four weeks, but Matty Ice will be no match for the Frozen Tundra, and I got the Packers D going for 12.5. Speaking of cool, Clay Matthews's girlfriend Kristi Stalter is a stone-cold fox, scoring a 9.0 and bringing their combined total to an even 21.5.
After each new episode of "Girl Code," we're breaking down the big takeaways for guys. Ignorance is bliss, but knowing ladies' secrets to up your game is even better.
Your boner is your best friend -- he's got your back (well, your front) through thick and thin, good times and bad slightly less good times -- but ladies have a different relationship with it. "Guy Code" provided the male perspective on boners, and now the "Girl Code" gang is telling all...
1. They're An Acquired...Um...Taste
Like scotch and sushi, some things just can't be appreciated without a little familiarity. Pretty much the whole cast admitted they were freaked out by boners at first. "I felt it and I was so terrified," Nessa says. But they got over their fears, as Alesha Reneé describes: "When we're younger, it's like, 'Ewww, he's got a boner -- what's going on in those pants?' And now it's like, what's going on in those pants?'"
2. Boners Are A Non-Verbal Compliment
"I used to think [boners] were really gross, and now I think they're flattering," Jamie Lee says. And Tanisha Long is even more enthusiastic: "When I cause a boner, it is frickin' awesome." (Don't forget Melanie Iglesias telling us, "There's no bigger compliment than a boner.")
Sometimes, though, they're more of a chore than a compliment. "Boners are like pests," Jessimae Peluso says. "You've just gotta get rid of them, and there's only one way to do it. Well, there's a bunch of ways..."
Keep checking back the rest of the week for our last two ladies, Tiffany Luu and Carly Aquilino (a "Girl Code" girl who holds a special place in our hearts). But right now, take a glance at Miss Ramos's best fall photos -- featuring some sick Halloween contact lenses and a burger shirt we could almost take a bite out of.
