Animate Me! 10 Black Female Cartoon Characters We Love

- By

Penny Proud from “The Proud Family”

You’ll notice very quickly that all the characters on this list are vastly different from one another. Of all the women, Penny is who I relate to the most. A California girl trying to figure out her teenage years, Penny is a straight A student who is also on the football team and newspaper staff. She has two best friends Sticky and Dijonay. And though she loves her friends, she realizes that they are often at the root of the trouble she finds herself in. (Don’t we all know that story.) Penny is constantly trying to figure out how to obey her parents, stay true to herself and fit in with her friends and the folks at school.
