Goths in Cartoons

Our follower Flora-Fairy, made me aware of a cool site, a blog, that talks exclusively of all the goth or goth looking charachters in cartoons and other related media!

popgothica.blogspot.com is the link!! Here are some of the cool characters you'll find!

Lenore from Lenore, the Cute Little Dead Girl. Created by Roman Dirge, Lenore was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem.Lenore died young of pneumonia but she came back to life to play and kill. She lives in an eerie mansion in the town of Nevermore with her creepy friends, like the cursed vampire ragdoll, Ragamuffin. Lenore gives dark macabre twists to cute innocent themes, like nursery rhymes, and most of the humor is very graphic and gruesome. While Lenore's actions often result in chaos and death to those around her, she is not a malicious character and is quite naive, especially when killing her many pets. But on some instances, she hurts/murders people not by accident, but out of spite or revenge. That is creepy cute fun!




Monster High (dolls). This is the most popular Mattel fashion dolls liked by goths. Who wouldn't like monster-inspired dolls with goth chic fashion? Though they have that Bratzy look and preppy attitude, their character designs and the plot setting are indeed gruesomely awesome. The main characters are Frankie Stein (the "fragile" new girl/monster), Draculaura (a hemophobic perky vampire), andClawdeen Wolf (the werewolf fashion diva). There's also Lagoona Blue(sporty daughter of the Gill-Man) and Ghoulia Yelps (the nerdy zombie girl). Their main mean girl is none other than the mummified Egyptian princess, Cleo De Nile. There are many more scary characters from Monster High in their webtoons, books and film. Check them out here:http://www.monsterhigh.com/


Emelia from Emelia, the Five Year Old Goth Girl. It's an animated short film about a little goth girl and her views of everyday life. Of course, the cartoon is definitely full of dark comedy as it shows the life and culture of stereotypical baby goths. She has a pet bat, eats Count Chocula cereal, listens to Marilyn Manson and enjoys Halloween. Emelia is very much lovable and creepy. Her voice as the narrator is really freaky and the music is like a "magical" metal genre. The cartoon won a lot of awards as best animation and best short film, leveling its self to Pixar. 




Henrietta from South Park. She’s one of the Goth Kids at school, but the episode where they starred isThe Ungroundables. Henrietta is the only goth gal, and the only goth whose name is known. She’s always seen smoking. She’s also overweight like Debbie. Her gloomy room is a hangout for the Goth Kids. Her mom says nice things about her, though Henrietta’s a conformist, especially towards her.


You will find many others in the blog! From Emilie The Strange to Ruby Gloom! I even found out that Lisa Simpson from The Simpson became a goth for one episode! :P
