Top 10 Cartoon Psychiatric Disorders

June 28, 2012  |  Funny, Pop Culture

I would imagine it would be hard to find any human being, much less any cartoon character without some personality or psychiatric disorder. Believe me, there is a disorder for any and every personality flaw, aberration or obsession. We may be the generation of the Cult of Personality, but we are also in the Age of Excuses and the Time of Its Not My Fault, blame my parents, therapist and anyone but me. So cherish these cartoon characters and their personality disorders. After all, they are a more colorful and harmless reflection of us and all our insecurities. But who among us would trade places with SpongeBob Squarepants? And speaking of the spongy underwater-pineapple dweller, he begins our list of top 10 cartoon psychiatric disorders, in no particular order.

SpongeBob SquarePants, Williams Syndrome


Pepe LePew, Narcissistic Personality Disorder


Homer Simpson, Intermittent Explosive Disorder


He-man/Prince Adam, Dissociative Identity Disorder


Glen Quagmire, Sexual Addiction


Eeyore, Dysthymia


Dora the Explorer, Dissociative Fugue


Charlie Brown, Avoidant Personality Disorder (APD)

Calvin, Schizophrenia


Bugs Bunny, Transvestic Fetishism


Ariel, Little Mermaid, Disposophobia (Hoarding)


Okay, if you counted you would have noticed we included 11 cartoon psychiatric disorders, so you know we don’t suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), but we had so much fun we couldn’t stop ourselves. And I’m sure there is a personality disorder for that too, just don’t tell us. Want to read more about these cartoon characters and their mental disorders?


  1. Which one are You ? :P

  2. I can relate to all of this illness… but I might just be hypocondriac.

  3. You’re wrong about Bugs. He doesn’t cross-dress for pleasure; he does it do defeat his pursuers.

  4. To be fair, “Calvin & Hobbes” has always made it slightly ambiguous whether Hobbes is real or imaginary.

  5. Calvin and Hobbes fan

    If calvin has schizophrenia then according to one of the comic strip where calvin’s mom talks to hobbes, calvin’s mom should also be suffering from schizophrenia. But there are instances where hobbes is seen to be real. One such place is when hobbes attacks calvin and calvin has marks on him. I never found the actual reason to what happened.

    I would say that calvin does not suffer from schizophrenia but he suffers from alter ego. Which is the tendency to create different identities and believing to be that particular identity. Example:- calvin pretending to be captain spiff.

    Calvin and hobbes is based on a kid who is six years old and shows the qualities of a six year old. Such as imaginary friends, a crush on the neighbour’s daughter, fights between the friends and so on. I am sure that minimum 10% of this world who were kids had and did these sort of stuff. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they suffered from schizophrenia

  6. The Alienist (

    Calvin is not schizophrenic. Hobbes is a transitional object, i.e. an object that has both a subjective reality (that is not contested by those around him) and a common objective reality. Children Calvin’s age often have transitional objects such as blankets, stuffed animals, imaginary friends, etc. This assists the child in navigating the transition between their experience of living in a largely subjective and poorly differentiated world and an objective, independent world.
