    OK, I see that dogs and cats have their own respective threads. So what about my favorite animal, horses?

    Does anyone have a favorite animated equine? Mine is probably Spirit, for two reasons. One, he's fairly realistic. Two, he's modeled after a Kiger Mustang, one of my very favorite breeds.

    Other cartoon horses that come to mind, even though they aren't exactly favorites of mine, are:

    Quick Draw McGraw

    Mr. Horse from Ren and Stimpy (Funny, but a bit too weird for my tastes)

    Buck from Disney's Home On the Range (kind of a bizarre movie in my opinion)

    I can't really think of too many at the moment, although I know lots of cartoons have had horses as sidekicks or as minor characters. Maybe some of you can help jog my memory!

    I can't think of any cartoon horses which leads me to think they weren't all that popular when I was a youngster.
    In my opinion horses were always best at being sidekicks.

    I can't actually think of any either :/ Well I can see one in my head but I can't remember the name, it's going to annoy me now :lol: Hopefully someone else replies and mentions it, or I'll come back and edit this.
    Edit: yep, Quick Draw McGraw is the only one coming to mind.

    I just remembered that years ago, on the old Casper the Ghost cartoons, Casper's friend Wendy had a ghost-horse pet named (I think) Night Mare.

    Also I remember seeing some cartoon series back in the 1970s about a little boy who had a toy Pegasus horse that would come to life and carry him away on adventures, but I have no idea what that cartoon was.

    Oh, and of course My Little Pony, but when that came along I was too old for it, so never really watched the cartoon, except recently on YouTube.

    My favorite cartoon horse was Night Mare on Casper.

    Compared to dogs and cats (and mice), there haven't been a lot of horses in cartoons. Aside from those already mentioned, the only one that I can
    think of at the moment is Walter Lantz's Sugarfoot (and he only appeared in a few cartoons). Oh, and the Lone Ranger's horse, Silver; and Zorro's
    horse, Tornado. I also liked Quick Draw McGraw and Casper's friend
    Nightmare. I thought "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron" was a great movie.

    "Also I remember seeing some cartoon series back in the 1970s about a little boy who had a toy Pegasus horse that would come to life and carry him away on adventures, but I have no idea what that cartoon was."


    (Yes, I'm quoting myself) I just found out what this one was, and totally by accident! Apparently it was called 'Luno'. I found a link to an episode on YouTube while looking at something else:

    YouTube - Luno - Adventure By the Sea

    In case the link doesn't work, it's titled 'Luno- Adventure By the Sea'.

    I know there were other episodes besides this one too. I haven't seen or heard of it since I was little!
