The Top 10 Cartoon Moms


How many mothers are willing to admit that they sometimes enjoy watching cartoons just as much, if not more than their kids? 

Now that I’m an adult, I’ve noticed that in many cartoons (even the ones specifically made for children), they sneak in a lot of adult humor that children don’t necessarily understand. 

The cartoons that I grew up watching are different, of course, from the ones that my children are growing up watching, and now that I’m an adult, I’ve discovered a lot more humor in these cartoons. 

I thought it would be fun to put together a list of my ten favorite cartoon moms.
