Presenting the "Child of TV" series, an alphabetic tribute to your favorite animated/puppet TV characters from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.
Since focus here was on television, I tried to stick to characters who originated in a TV series or shorts. This meant limiting characters who originated in a movie. Particularly for the most recent decades, I also limited characters aimed specifically at preschoolers or adults.
Also, some criteria: I limited each show to one character. I considered a character to be part of a specific decade if (a) the show I'm representing debuted within one year prior to the start of the decade and (b) if the majority of the series ran in that decade. So there may be a character who debuted in 1999, for example, but since his show was most popular in the 2000s, this is where he falls.
