SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT

An Illustrated History Of Gay Cartoon Couples

pop culture gay couples

We’re gaga for artist Jerrod Maruyama‘s too-cute image of gay couples from some of our favorite cartoons, comics, kids’ shows and movies. We always assumed R2-D2 was a stone-butch lesbian, but we suppose we can allow some artistic license.

    Huh… Why did I never think of Yogi and Boo-Boo? I was about four years old when my mother flipped out at me for referring to Bert and Ernie as boyfriends, so it’s not a case of not being old enough to realise. Weird. XD

    Hello? Jonny Quest and Hadji.

    Peppermint Patty and Marcie – “who is it, sir?” Love it.

    Hmmm … SnagglePuss and QuickDraw McGraw ? Maybe?

    I would have thought Bugs and Daffy… they seem to always take the wrong turn in Albuquerque.

    @mlbumiller: More so than Elmer Fudd, he is always trying to kill Bugs Bunny

    @kurt_t: Don’t forget Dr. Benton Quest and Roger “Race” Bannon

    @mlbumiller: A yes, Dr. Benton Quest and Roger “Race” Bannon, stripped to the waist and struggling against the ropes as a tribe of bloodthirsty savages, their sinewy bodies painted with macabre symbols, danced around a raging fire and raised their glittering flint-tipped spears to a moonlit sky.

    And then our parents wondered why we turned out so kinky.

    How about Rocky and Bullwinkle….

  • PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID

    Dick Dastardly and Muttley.

    If not He-man and Battle Cat, certainly Prince Adam and Cringer.

    Everyone knew Peppermint Patty was a lesbian! Where’s Jem and one of the Holograms? Always thought they had a lipstick thing going on…

    Going to cry foul on Brian and Stewie. Yes Stewie is a crossdreser, S&M lover, and future gay kid into doggie love, but Brian isn’t gay! Brain loves Stewie like a friend and brother. He is like the str8 boy you room with in college who relents to oral from you once in a while cause he is your pal but he isn’t really into guys.

    Mario and Luigi…twincest!!!
