    38 Characters That Were Oddly Hot Even Though They Were Animated

    Human? Animal? For some reason it didn't really matter.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what animated characters sparked their sexual awakening. Here are the characters that left the biggest impact:

    1. Robin Hood from Robin Hood

    Disney

    I was SO obsessed with him when I was little. I would pretend to be Maid Marian and tell everyone I was going to marry him. My parents ended up taking me to a renaissance fair and I actually got to meet Robin Hood. Needless to say, I was SHOOK when I found out he was just some old, sweaty guy in tights and not my charming fox. I took off my flower crown and cried the whole way home. BLECH

    3. Prince Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender

    I thought he was so handsome. He had such an emotional backstory, I was like, “It’s OK, I’ll help you get through your pain. I’ll be your shoulder to cry on.”
