It should come as no surprise that, over the years, red-headed people, especially red-haired girls and red-haired women, have often been stereotyped. It has been said that redheads have an unmatched ire as part of their personalities and that it is best not to cross them. It has also been said that redheads are extremely sensitive, passionate, sexy and, at times, can be on the devilish side.

Red-headed people are somewhat of a rarity.

The truth is that red hair is considered to be a genetic mutation that less than 2% of the world’s population shares. The mutated gene, MC1R, must be carried by both parents for their offspring to be a redhead. A person can be a carrier of the "offending" gene but not have red hair themselves. Red hair is not specific to any one demographic and can be found in any ethnicity.

So now that you have the facts, you may agree that redheads are somewhat of a rarity. That, in and of itself, may be the very reason that they stand out so well. Redheads are very recognizable, much to their own chagrin, at times. Most redheads don’t fully appreciate their uniqueness and wish they could just blend in. Sorry redheads, no such luck!

Below is a compilation of female cartoon redheads that stand out for all the qualities that are tied to the color of their hair.

Ariel, of The Little Mermaid, may be the rarest of the cartoon redheads; she was a redhead AND a mermaid.  She also has blue eyes which is another rarity for redheads since most redheads have brown eyes.   Ariel dreamed of being something she wasn’t; a human. 

Josie, from Josie & the Pussycats, is the classic example of a spirted redhead. She is spunky and outgoing.

Jessica Rabbit is a voluptuous, steaming HOT redhead.

She has been quoted as saying, "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way". She is quite possibly the sexiest of the cartoon redheads and has long been a favorite with the gentlemen!

Kim Possible is a close second for her sex appeal as a cartoon redhead. She is the total package being a beautiful, spunky crime fighter that is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty, if necessary.

Jane Jetson, the lovely and poised wife of George Jetson, is a dutiful space-housewife and mother. She is typically the voice of reason in the family but don’t let her fool you; she is quite capable of taking care of business!

Daphne, from Scooby Doo, is another classic example of an energetic cartoon redhead.

She definitely isn’t the brains of the crime-fighting team.  She often has a knack for finding danger, but to her credit, she puts "everything" into her work.

Each of these cartoon redheaded women are superstars in their own right. In addition to sharing the redhead distinction, they all possess a keen fashion sense, distinct personality and an unmatched appeal. Redheads are distinguished as much for their personalities as they are for their hair color. They exude a distinct aura and energy that just can’t be explained and can make a man itch like he has poison ivy; an itch that only the redhead, herself, can scratch!

Wilma Flintstone is a pre-historic, redheaded firecracker from Bedrock.  She is definitely the backbone and brains of her family.  I believe she may have hit the nail on the head with her quote, “…it takes a REAL man to handle a redhead!".
