Animate Me! 10 Black Female Cartoon Characters We Love

- By

Valerie From “Josie & The Pussycats”

Throwback! According to Wiki, the internet bible, Valerie is the first African American, female cartoon character to appear as a regular in an animated series in 1970-71. A huge deal right?! There was no way we could make this list without her. On the original series Valerie was easily the smartest girl in the band. She played the tambourine, was a mechanical wiz and was the voice of reason in the group. Respect.
