Do you assume Thumper is extra lovely than Bambi? OK, boomer.
There’s a generational cut up over which of the 2 stars of Disney’s 1942 animated traditional is the cutest-ever TV and film cartoon character, in keeping with a brand new survey carried out by opinion-research agency YouGov. The ballot discovered that Gen Z and millennial respondents favored Bambi — whereas Gen Xers and boomers picked the paw-pounding bunny Thumper.
The truth is, Thumper positioned No. 9 among the many youthful cohort. In the meantime, “The Lion King’s” Nala — No. 2 amongst Gen Z/millennials — wasn’t even within the older group’s Prime 10.

What impressed this pressing examination of the query over which of Hollywood’s anthropomorphic toons are essentially the most interesting?
A lot of the current analysis from U.Ok.-based YouGov has centered across the COVID-19 disaster, and the agency determined the mission would function some welcome “counterprogramming,” in keeping with a spokesperson. The corporate plans to launch a “Cuteness Tracker” on its web site, which will probably be populated within the coming months with new characters, within the hopes it “can have a particular type of resonance,” the rep stated.
For the document, the general winner throughout all age teams was Thumper — by a nostril, beating out Bambi by simply one-tenth of a proportion level. These two had been adopted by Woman, Patch, Winnie the Pooh, Fortunate, Tweety, Simba, Nala and Dumbo.
For the survey, YouGov generated an inventory of 114 characters based mostly on solutions from 448 panelists; solely fictional, non-human characters had been included. It then polled 2,485 U.S. adults, randomly assigning every respondent 20 totally different characters, which appeared in 10 head-to-head matchups. For every pairing, respondents had been requested to point the “cuter” character of the 2 (telling them “cute” means behaviors or traits which are “cuddly, affectionate, playful, and so forth.” The characters had been then scored based mostly on their “win proportion” (i.e., how usually had been they chose as cuter in a head-to-head matchup).
Right here’s the general Prime 20 rating, per the survey:
