22 items ranked

Some of these were great cartoons, and some of them were just a thinly veiled attempt at making money. You decide!

Transformers Report Abuse
Nothing can compete with the transformers. These transforming toys were immensely popular in the 80s, and spawned several different cartoon series. More recently transformers have had a comeback with not one but two summer blockbuster films. I guess there really is "more than meets the eye."

GI Joe Report Abuse
This is probably one of the most popular toys to cartoons ever made. First an action figure, then a successful 1980s cartoon. And of course, only a few years ago there was the return of GI Joe with a summer blockbuster film.

My Little Pony Report Abuse
Back in the 80s these little pony dolls had a cartoon series as well as a movie. And now, after a decade or so, new more glamorous ponies (if you can call a pony glamorous) are taking the toy market by storm.

He-Man Report Abuse
It's hard to even comprehend the popularity of He-Man. These odd-looking action figures with a slight resemblance to Norse gods had movies and a television series. Then the spin-off show She-Ra was introduced, and at some point there was even a live action film. Way to milk it for all it's worth.

Carebears Report Abuse
Based on everyone's favorite plush bears, the Carebears cartoons have seen a huge amount of success. With a cartoon series as well as movies, the Carebears have had a recent come-back with new toys and cartoons being produced.

Pokemon Report Abuse
As toys to movies goes, Pokemon cards actually made a fairly decent cartoon. And some of the video games aren't bad either.

Strawberry Shortcake Report Abuse
These fruit-scented figures made it big as an 80s cartoon, only to have a recent resurgence. Of course the more modern Strawberry Shortcakes characters are a bit more sassy than their predecessors, but I guess that's just how it is. However, I still think the Peculiar Purple Pie Man is up there with best animated baking villain.

Popples Report Abuse
Remember this toy? It was a weird plush bear type thing that transformed into a ball, much like balling up your socks when they come out of the laundry. Not the best idea for a cartoon.

Garbage Pail Kids Report Abuse
These gross yet extremely popular playing cards not only got their own cartoon, but they later even had a live action movie!

Teddy Ruxpin Report Abuse
So you put a cassette into the back of this stiff teddy bear, and then it's creepy lips and eyes move and it appears to tell you a story. How did this become a cartoon?
