Clifford. Snoopy. Gromit. Scooby. Pluto. Garfield. You know the names. Each are iconic.
These cartoon pets are more than recognizable faces from our childhoods though. Theyre timeless works of art, which, through both book and tablet, will continue to win the affection of children for generations to come.
