We love cars here at Autoblog, and we've been inflicted with this particular disease for our entire lives – even back when we were but young little tykes. Like most of you, we have fond memories of plopping ourselves in front of the television to watch Saturday morning cartoons – especially the shows that prominently featured automobiles in one form or another. In fact, that appreciation for all things automotive lives with us to this day, and we still get a kick out of animated features that focus in on our favorite subject in the world.

With all of this in mind, follow along with us today as we recount our favorite Top 10 Animated Cars Of All Time. To make it on our list, a vehicle had to be prominently featured on an animated show on either the small or big screen. Hopefully, there's something for everybody on today's list, as it stretches from before many of us were born right on through to today.

      Woah! Where's Benny the Cab? http://riajen.com/benny%20the%20cab.jpg

        Exactly what I was thinking. The Canyonero and the Homer make the list, but somehow Benny the Cab gets the shaft. WTF Autoblog.

      It is hard to believe that Wacky Racers was only one season long. I remember that show like it was yesterday. In fact, I got a couple of episodes on DVD from Netflix just so my kids could see it.

      Great List!

      Personally, I prefer the Camaro Bumblebee over the Beetle Bumblebee.
      I watched a few episodes of the Simpsons with the Canyonero, and I loved it. It really hit home about the misplaced SUV craze.
      Initial D is beast.
      Is Homer's Car a nuclear powered Rolls-Royce with an obese Spirit of Ecstasy on the front?
      Cars (the movie) is probably an instant classic.

        FTW

        Mach 5

        Go Speed Racer Go!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yes, Speed Buggy definitely belongs on the list. Especially since he was actually a character in the show.

      Amend the list by popular demand!

      Toyota Corolla AE86 FTW !


      Initial D is also the best car cartoon ever made.
      • 5 Years Ago
      More cars from the original Speed Racer should have been on the list. You had the GRX which, apparently, you had to be under the influence of drugs to drive without speed induced hallucinations. Who could forget the "Mammoth Car"?...oh well, I guess I just revealed I am solidly middle aged :(

      What, no Jackrabbit Special? How about Tom Slick’s Thunderbolt Greaseslapper?
