The Mental Disorders of Beloved Cartoon Characters



Poor, poor Eeyore. Fans may write off his sadness as slight and occasional melancholy or think that he has a flair for pessimism. It turns out there's a psychiatric diagnosis with his name on it. Same with Bugs and a number of other cool cartoon characters. Many speak of the stigma of mental illness; it may be that the popularity of these long suffering, brave souls will affect positive change in that regard. See more cartoon characters whose personailities line up with DSM-V entries here.

Ha. Hopefully Neatorama readers will interpret this as the attempt at humor that it is. If not, as these definitions are from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, perhaps they'd have better luck taking any issues with the material to the American Psychiatric Association.

Somewhere on Jezebel there's a comment thread full of people OUTRAGED at Transvestic Fetishism being called a disorder. Or so I'm guessing.
