You know what is extra awesome about Pixar’s latest animated epic “Brave“? Our adorable and endearing protagonist is a feisty, fiery ginger. Now because I am a proud carrier of a mutated MC1R protein (I’m a redhead), I’m only slightly inclined to prefer red haired leading characters to those of the blonde or brunette variety. And while “Brave” leading lady Merida is entirely likable for plenty of other reasons, she’s reminded me of several other equally memorable animated redheads. Here are a few of my favorites, in no particular order:
Ariel, “The Little Mermaid”
Chuckie Finster “Rugrats”
Jessica Rabbit, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”
Strawberry Shortcake, “Strawberry Shortcake”
Kyle Broflovski, “South Park”
