12 Childhood Cartoons Who Would've Been Awfully Sleepy

Filming must have been tough for cartoon actors who have nocturnal tendencies.

1. Owl from Winnie the Pooh.

Owl was never much of a night owl: He liked to impart his wisdom at all times of the day.

2. Meeko from Pocahontas.

Like his raccoon relatives, Meeko had to fight drowsiness to forage just around the river bend. (But that didn't stop him from eating all the biscuits or annoying Flit.)

3. Rocky from Rocky & Bullwinkle.

Rocky the flying squirrel could only go on one adventure at a time because he couldn't keep his eyes open.

4. Remy from Ratatouille.

Remy had the added challenge of trying not to faceplant into his plates.

5. Flower from Bambi.

Flower's sleep cycle was a little off, but if there's one thing all introverts love, it's bed.

6. Jiminy Cricket.

What Disney didn't show you was that all of Jiminy's scenes were filmed at night.

7. Arthur from Arthur.

If you thought you were tired during class, aardvarks have it much, much worse.

8. Bartok from Anastasia.

Disney / Via

It's hard being a neurotic bat sidekick, but at least evil tends to do its diabolical planning at night.

9. Fievel from An American Tail.

10. The badgers from “Badgers.”

At that hour, the badger brigade probably wouldn't even have enough energy to coalesce.

11. Wile E. Coyote.

Coyotes are generally nocturnal, but it wasn't Wile E.'s fault that his prey was more of an early bird.

12. Tod from The Fox and the Hound.

When you're the best of friends, biological clocks don't matter.
