Toonophilia is a love of cartoon
characters. It can mean a tendency to become deeply emotionally
with a toon
, or it can mean a sexual attraction
, or both. One
of the most celebrated toonophiles is the famed underground artist
, who stunned 'mundane
' audiences by admitting to having
been sexually attracted to Bugs Bunny
- though some might say that the
most famous toonophile of all was 'Uncle Walt'.
Perhaps the most well-rounded definition of a toonophile
is a person who regards toons with the same range of emotions he
or she would bestow on a human.
