There are many theories about why in some of the world’s most famous cartoons, several of their characters do not show their faces. However, although keeping their faces a mystery on purpose, there were special episodes where we were able to see how these animated characters looked like. Characters like Miss Bellum or Cow and Chicken’s parents were always shown as iconic faceless characters, but there was one particular episode where they finally showed us their faces. If you think you missed it, scroll down and discover how these iconic cartoon characters looked like!
Miss Bellum – The Powerpuff Girls
Miss Bellum was the sensual secretary of Townsville’s Mayor in The Powerpuff Girls. She is characterized for wearing a short and tight red dress and long puffy orange hair.
After years, when we thought that this woman’s face would never be revealed, they showed her face for a couple of seconds on the tenth anniversary of the series in 2008. To be precise, this mystery lasted 10 years! What do you think of Miss Bellum’s face?
The parents – Cow and Chicken
This iconic cartoon from the 90s, created by David Feiss, was broadcasted on Cartoon Network. There were so many random and bizarre questions about this iconic show such as, how come a cow and a chicken were siblings? Why were they bothered by a strange version of the devil without pants? Why did they eat butt cereal?
Throughout 50 episodes, we only saw two pairs of legs corresponding to the cow and chick’s dads, without ever seeing torsos or hands. But for a second in episode 14, when Cow and Chicken start looking for some items in the closet, we can see among the things the upper body parts of their parents in what seems to be a school project.
Mammy Two Shoes – Tom and Jerry
There were rarely humans in Tom and Jerry, and the one that was shown the most was Mammy Two Shoes. It’s never clear if she’s the woman who works in the house where both animals live or if it’s the owner; what is clear is that her face was never shown except for one episode.
Mammy Two Shoes first appeared in the 1939 short film ‘Puss Gets the Boot’ before Tom and Jerry became an animated series. She also appeared in the short film ‘Push-Button Kitty’ released in 1952. However, the episode where we were able to see her face was in ‘Saturday Evening Puss’ in 1950, where she’s briefly seen running towards the camera.
Kenny – South Park
Surely you remember that shy character who always kept himself hidden with his orange hoodie. You surely also remember he never spoke well and that he died on most episodes.
The only aspect of Kenny’s face shown was his bulging eyes; however, in the South Park movie, we were able to see his entire face and even listen to his voice.
Bucky McBadbat – The Fairly OddParents
Chester McBadbat is one of Timmy Turner’s best friends. Chester’s father is a baseball fanatic, and most of the time, he appeared wearing a paper bag over his head.
Bucky McBadbat used his paper bag to hide his shame after being humiliated on one occasion. It wasn’t until the movie: Magical Idol, released in 2006, that he finally took off the bag.
