Most of us can cast our minds back to the innocence of childhood. Even more of us can probably remember when that innocence was shattered, when we fell hopelessly in love/lust with a cartoon character.

This is a safe, non-judgemental space to air our past and present animated crushes, and it's time we curated a list of Twitter's Top 20 cartoon heart-throbs.

From obvious choices like General Li Shang, Prince Eric and Danny Phantom to more obscure preferences (*cough* Shrek *cough*)…this list will give you a good laugh, if nothing else. Try to keep your heartrate steady.

Over the past 24 hours, a particular cartoon depiction of Serena Williams has been causing outrage online. 

The cartoon, by The Herald Sun artist Mark Knight, shows the tennis legend smashing her racket in a rage.

The cartoon has been widely criticised as being sexist and accused of using racist stereotypes. 

The newspaper's editor, Damon Johnston has defended the cartoon, writing on Twitter that it 'is not racist or sexist …. it rightly mocks poor behaviour by a tennis legend … Mark has the full support of everyone.' 

High profile figures have criticised the cartoon, including author JK Rowling. 

'Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop,' she tweeted. 

Knight denied that the cartoon was racist, telling 3AW radio's Neil Mitchell:

'It's a cartoon about poor behaviour … People said I’m racist because I drew Serena as an African-American woman.'

'I drew her as a powerful figure, which is what she is. She's strongly built.'

Serena Williams has since been fined $17,000 for her outburst at the US Open Final.

Would you watch KUWTK if it was in a cartoon (or kartoon?) version? 

Apparently, Kris Jenner is pitching just that.

The matriarch of reality TV is plugging an animated television series featuring a cartoon version of the famous clan. 

TMZ have revealed that Kris has had a meeting with Harvey Weinstein's company in L.A. earlier this month to pitch the show.  

"The entire family" will be featured with the exception of Caitlyn, according to the gossip site. 

The cartoon is said to be aimed towards a prime time audience, and is not for kids. 

Kim and co. have already been immortalised in animation in her popular app game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. 

We're not sure how a cartoon version would be different to KUWTK except for it being animated, but we're sure Kris has a genius idea or two up her Balmain suit sleeve. 

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!
