Great list! I agree with all of the entries.

Do you remember the scene in that one episode of The Simpsons where all the characters said their catchphrases in the Simpsons' house and then stared at Lisa, who said, "If anyone needs me, I'll be in my room." to which Homer commented: "What kind of a catchphrase is that?"
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Mar 3 2:13
Noo, I don't remember that one, but Lisa doesn't have a catchphrase, true, which is kinda funny itself :)
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Mar 3 3:25
Cool. And that's the correct picture for Bill the Cat, by the way.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Mar 3 7:56
@the giraffe: Whew, what a relief! :D I haven't seen much of this stuff, guess I have a lot to catch up with

awesome list!

when did Adam West voice batman?
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Mar 4 2:22
@silent killer: Well, he didnt voice Batman, but he did play him on the Batman TV series of 1966. I just couldnt find who voiced Batman...

Catchprase for Charlie Brown: "Good Grief!"

The Grinch .. that's a tough one, he doesn't really have a proper catchprase, but here's a suggestion: "Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

Winnie The Pooh: "Oh bother!"

Felix the Cat: "Rightie-oh!"

Fat Albert: "Hey hey hey!"

Gerald McBoing-Boing: "Boing! Boing!" (it's all he ever said)

Well, Pikachu's catchphrase is Pika-Pika... LOL!

For Speed Racer, i think it's "I'm Speed!", something like that.

For Tweety Pie, you should change it to "I Tawt I Taw A Puddy-Tat" cuz that's what he says a-lot!
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Apr 28 6:38
Here are for the others:

Tom sometimes says 'Don't you just believe it?' in a haunting voice... No idea about Jerry!

Mickey Mouse one is 'Oh boy' with a chuckle afterwards (Especially in his old cartoons not the 3D thingy nowadays)

For Popeye, it's "I yam what i yam"

That's it for now i guess...

Catch phrases:
Mr. Magoo- "Oh Magoo, you've done it again!"
Betty Boop- "Boop-Boop-A-Doop"
Superman- "Up,Up, and Away!"
Wonder Woman- (several) "Great Hera!"
Space Ghost- "Spaaace Ghooost!"
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at Oct 28 2:54
Popeye- "Well Blow Me Down!"

PowerPuff Girls- (final phrase of each episode) "And so the day has been saved, thanks to...The Power Puff Girls!"

Great list. As kids we would rush home for lunch so we could watch the Flintstones from 12:00 to 12:30 and eat as we watched and then go bach to school in the afternoon. Brings back many good memories.
