According to animator Art Babbitt, "Animation follows the laws of physics—unless it is funnier otherwise." The idea that cartoons behave differently compared to the real world (but not randomly) is almost as old as animation itself. For example, Walt Disney already talked about "the plausible impossible" in 1956.

Bored Panda has collected some of the most ridiculous examples of cartoon logic to highlight how the world of animation differs from the real one, and it couldn't be any funnier. From the fingerless Powerpuff Girl Blossom eating with chopsticks to Tom and Jerry hanging out naked all day but wearing clothes at the beach - these characters clearly aren't governed by the laws of science or the norms of any rational society. Scroll down to witness severe cases of cartoon logic that make perfect (non)sense and vote for your favorite ones!

I'm the same way. I'm only bilingual, but there's something that prevents me from seeing things I'm looking for. If I'm looking for something and it's next to me, I literally can't see it. I have to walk away and do something else. When I come back it will be there.
