EF#14 : Cartoon Character
It’s Friday, and this is my first post for : BEC.
I, like any other childs, grow up idolising (is it even a word??) several cartoon characters, whether it is Disney’s, Marvel’s, Pixar’s, etc. I do read and watch cartoon (or animation) until now, and luckily my husband is kinda into animation too. He’s a real Marvel’s-superheroes fan-boy by the way. Here are my several favorite cartoon (or animation) characters :

1. Donald Duck
Who doesn’t know this grumpy duck in a sailor suit and it’s “particular” voice? This duck surely has a problem with anger management I guess and sometimes he become the victim of his nephew’s prank, but at the end of the day he usually is the-guy-who-save-the-day. I don’t know how can he be so lucky. It doesn’t happen in daily real life, right?. Also, he gets the prettiest duck on his neighbourhood. (How come? hehehe). Aside of his short-temper, Donald Duck is the most tenacity character among that cartoon. Once he set his goal, he will go 100% to accomplish it. He also is a real good friend. He take cares his best friend Goofy most of the time, his nephews, and he always helps his uncle eventhough he doesn’t like it. I can remember everytime Donald helps Grover, he’s always like : “grmbl grmbl grmbl” but he’s doing it anyway. So I find this character is honest, family-man, such a good friend, and FUN.

2. Fa Mulan
Fa Mulan is inspired by Hua Mulan, a legendary woman warrior from China. Fa Mulan is the only Disney’s Princess who isn’t depicted as “regular princess”, you know with a huge-ball-gown, white skin, graceful attitude, and perfect teeth! (sigh). That’s the only reason why I adore this character very much. This character says that being princess is not only about how she looks, but also how she take cares her family, friends, and people. In this cartoon, Mulan shows courage, loyal, determined, independent, intelligence as a daughter, friend, soldier, and grown-up woman (I love when she got her cheek blushed around Shang Li ^^), but sometimes she can be so clumsy and very outspoken, that is very funny of her.

3. Mr. Carl Fredricksen & Russel
I remember my tears flooding my eyes while watching this movie, and it still does every time I re-watch it. No..not because that I’m sad but it is such a huge, eternal, pure love between Mr and Mrs.Fredricksen, also Russel. What’s not to love about this movie, even my husband love it too. To think about Mr.Fredricksen, I can picture my husband will be pretty much like him when he’s old (that square face and glasses). And Russel, that cute kid remind me that as a mother I should not let my kid(s) feel lonely and always be there for her(or him or them). I fell in love with these characters from the first time I (we : me and my husband-who-was-still-a-boyfriend-back-then) saw this movie, and ever since.
Those are my favorite cartoon characters, and if I have to choose one, it will be the one and only Donald Duck. He’s my first love to a cartoon character.
K, hope that answers the challenge. Oh, and I really look forward to any corrections of any misspells or incorrect grammar or else. Thanks, and feel free to left comment.. ^^
