Fiesty, fiery, and oh so iconic, there's something about readheads that make them compelling for cartoonists and animators. Whether they're the evil echantress or folksy girl-next-door, the history of pop-culture is riddled with cute attractive gingers that inspired generations of 2D crushes.

25. Dexter's Mom

If hips don't lie then Dexter's mom is the most honest human being that has ever lived.

24. Daphne (Scooby Doo)

You may TELL yourself you liked Velma better, but we all know the popular girl really was...

23. Joan of Arc (Clone High)

One of the most under-appreciated animated comedies of all time had the most crush-worthy clone ever as well.

22. Lois Griffin (Family Guy)

Wouldn't call Seth McFarlane's character designs "sexy" but the legions of creept fan-artists say otherwise.

21. Samantha (Totally Spies!)

From the sensual shores of French-Canada, came the adventures of Californian teenagers in skintight bodysuits.

20. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

I would sell my voice to Ursula to be Prince Eric for just one night.

19... TIE! Frankie (Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends) + Vicky (Fairly Odd Parents)

Nickelodeon vs. Cartoon Network, nice vs. naughty, ponytail up vs ponytail down.
