Politics Of Some Cartoon Characters


Porky Pig
New Deal-era Liberal. Big on farm subsidies. Supported Humphrey, Stevenson, Muskie, etc.

Betty Boop
Not terribly political, but she was around Leftists most of the time, having grown up in a Jewish family in Brooklyn. In the 1930s she sang at a fundraiser for the Spanish republicans (at her brother's request). This came back to haunt her in the 1950s, when it made it difficult for her to get gigs due to the McCarthy era. She ended up having to move to France to support herself, where she became an even bigger star than she had been in the States.

Felix the cat
A strict libertarian. Against censorship, taxes, minimum wage, workplace safety laws, etc.

Mickey Mouse
Extreme right-wing republican (some even say a John Bircher). Actively campaigned for Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan (an old friend from Hollywood days). A reclusive ever since his stroke, he is said to have helped finance Buchanan's campaign.

Bugs Bunny
Long-time Democrat.

Popeye
Was fairly Liberal in his younger days, but he became an old, overweight, embittered reactionary who would sit watching television, bottle of rum in his hand, complaining about the Blacks.

Donald Duck
Too paranoid to vote. Frequently mouths off with convulted theories about the masons, the Illuminati, the Trilateralists, but nobody can understand him due to his speech impediment.

Goofy
Votes for whoever Mickey Mouse tells him to vote for.

Fred Flintstone
Rockefeller republican, Nixon supporter.

Elmer Fudd
Orthodox NRA member.

The Jetsons
George and Jane, his wife, are lifelong members of the Revivalist Party. His daughter, Judy, however, was voted president of the young neo-whigs at her school. This has caused tension in the Jetson household.
