Animate Me! 10 Black Female Cartoon Characters We Love

- By

Cita from “Cita’s World”

When I was looking for an image of Cita, I stumbled across a post by Luvvie saying that BET still owes us an apology for Cita’s World. Eehh. Now no one in their right mind will deny that Cita was a walking, talking, bankhead bouncing stereotype. But I highly doubt that the people watching Cita’s World, black folk, didn’t know that. I think we’re discerning and experienced enough to know that Cita, an animated cartoon character who talks about music videos is not indicative of every black woman. That’s just silly. And I’m sorry but I’d dare anyone to look at a full episode of Cita’s World and not chuckle just a bit. Sure she was loud and tacky at times but she also had some quality commentary. I know most of us have friends who are thoughtful and talented but also a tad ratch.
