The press tour for the live-action The Amazing Spiderman 2 has begun—continuing the age-old practice of everything that was once only two dimensions expanding into three. Because you know what can't charm various late-night hosts and model head-to-toe Prada on a step-and-repeat? A cartoon. The new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was just released, and April O'Neil went from an intrepid young reporter with a cute ginger lob and penchant for yellow jumpsuits to...Megan Fox, in all her usual foxiness. And it was just announced that Archie, after many years of chasing Betty and Veronica through Riverdale, will meet his end in the final issue of Life with Archie this summer. So long, flat friends.
So before they figure out how to make a summer blockbuster out of our beloved Hello Kitty or cast Kate Upton as Luanne Platter (wait...would that be awesome?), we revisit the most adorable young women from our favorite Saturday morning (and Sunday evening) cartoons, the overtly sexy super heroines of older brothers' comic collections, and every other hot lady that came to life through the working end of a felt-tip pen.
