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 this "the plausible impossible" cartoon logic in 1956. And when you think about it, the popular cartoons would lose half of their charm if their characters started acting just the same as us. Our sometimes dull reality is what we're trying to escape watching the funny cartoons, after all.

Bored Panda has collected some of the most ridiculous examples of cartoon plot holes to highlight how the world of cartoon characters 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 plot twists. Scroll down to witness severe cases of cartoon logic that make perfect (non)sense and vote for the most facepalm-y 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.

    No, but seriously, sometimes there's no better way to relieve stress than some good karaoke to reset your brain before tackling the problem.
