Cartoon Characters We'd Gladly Go Out For Drinks With

We’re living in a Golden Age of entertainment when it comes to cartoons. Thanks to The Simpsons, cartoons are no longer just for kids, and grown-ups can get into heated debates about the plot points of such animated series as Adventure Time, Steven Universe or Archer. Or so I’ve heard.

To toast this new age of animation, we decided to take it literally by creating a wish list of animated characters we’d love to hang with.

Pam Poovey (Archer)

The ISIS crew is full of hard-party people, but this former cokehead/recurring fight clubber is the only one I’d trust to get me home relatively unscathed and un-pregnant.

Princess Bubblegum and Marceline (Adventure Time)

These badass buds (and possibly former lovers) of Ooo would be a blast at a karaoke bar. So, that’d be a tea, something red, and a rum and coke. Thanks.

Greg Universe (Steven Universe)

Garnet is by far the chillest character on the show, but I’d bet that a night of socializing with this ever-cool Gem would be all kinds of awkward. Instead, I’d prefer to party with over-the-hill rocker/lovable dadbod Greg. The guy always has a song in his heart and a good time on the horizon, be it rocking out with his adorable super-powered son or hanging in with some VHS tapes of Little Butler.

Bender (Futurama)

We both think Bender is great, and this robot is literally fueled by booze. No brainer.

Rick (Rick and Morty)

The belching and the drool would make a night out with this mad scientist nauseating. But the space tripping adventure would be worth putting up with it. Hell, even a night of watching TV from parallel dimensions would be worth Rick’s grossness.

Henchman 21/Gary (The Venture Bros.)

Sure, Brock and a slew of other characters are cooler than this chubby Monarch minion. But you know what? 21’s banter with the late 24 is exactly the kind of nonsense convos I enjoy with my own friends. I think we’d get along great, and that if any super villian shit went down he’d get me out of there mostly not dead.

Azula (Avatar: The Last Air Bender)

If “The Beach” taught us nothing it was that this Fire Nation princess knows how to party.

Bolin (The Legend of Korra)

He’s a mover-star, best friends with a red panda, and a bit of a goober. What’s not to love?

Linda Belcher (Bob’s Burgers)

Ever-enthusiastic this mother of three and happily married restauranteur is always up for a good time. And if that good time includes wine, Alright!!

Kristy Puchko could probably find a better use of her time than imagining hanging out with cartoon characters. Maybe.
