From beauties to nerdish, superwoman to supervillain, following are our five most popular women cartoon characters

Wonder Woman 
(Best superwoman character)
Creator: Disney
Diana aka Wonder Woman is a heartthrob. Not only were the Greek gods from Amazon, men across the globe were fascinated by her.  Considering the saviour aspect of her, she possessed some powers like – super strength, invulnerability, flight, combat skill, combat strategy and superhuman agility. First featured in All-Star Comics (1941) and then screened on TV and flicks in series’ of Superman, Batman, Justice League, Green Lantern, and her own TV show too.

Wilma Flintstone – The Flintstones(Best cartooned homemaker)
 Hanna Barbera
It isn’t so easy to control a cartooned family; Wilma Flintstone has managed it well, since 1960. First seen in The Flintstone Flyer, Wilma has been portraying her character pretty good. Graphic wise, the character is too lean and beautiful to be put as a mother and wife of caveman Fred.  On TV Wilma and her conversation with her neighbours was an important part of the series. DC Comics has a comic on The Flintstones.

Velma Dace Dinkley –Scooby Doo(Best nerd/tech freak on TV)
Creator: Hanna Barbera
When you are surrounded by a good-for-nothing dog – Scooby Doo and a slacker like Shaggy Rogers, you have to be accompanied by a smarty like Velma. Yes, she does lose her glasses very often yet, plays a vital role in solving mysteries. Scooby-Doo was an immensely popular Comedy-Horror show. The characters were well enacted and the background music was adjusted particularly to suit that exacting scene.
Jasmine – Aladdin
(Best beauty)

Creator: Walt Disney
Indian mythological stories have attracted cartoon creators abroad for very long now. Like for instance – Alibaba, Tenali Raman, Akbar Birbal and many other concepts were rolled onto the television screen. Jasmine – a character created under Arabic concept; twirl of her hair, bluish costume and those heavy golden earrings suited Jasmine so well.

Ursula – The Little Mermaid
(Best Villainess)Creator: Walt Disney
Ursula delivered everything in an obese form –dialogues (voice tone), characters physicality, scary ideas and acts too. This giant character got goose-bumps on me and many other while she enacted the ‘scary’ Ursula who is always against Princess Ariel (the cute little soul).
