No One Can Identify 100% Of These Famous Cartoon Villains

People often overlook cartoons because they are not grown up or intelligent, but for many people, they include the stories and characters that stick with them the most. Whether they grew up on Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, or Adventure Time and Steven Universe, cartoons are how kids learn many lessons about the world and their place in it.

Of course, these lessons can't be taught without the most memorable characters of all: villains. Most shows and movies are only as good as the characters the heroes have to beat, and this is true whether the characters are animated or not.

This quiz is for people who grew up on cartoons villains or just found a love for them later in life.
