Cartoon Character Costume Party

Make it easy for your friends to pick a look this Halloween with a themed party that’ll get everyone ready to have a fab time. The hard part? Picking just one character to copy!


Pull Out All the Stops


Encourage your guests to show up in full cartoon character spirit. I’m talking voices, catchphrases and recognizable habits. Snag Astro’s sound bytes or Fred Flintstone’s bellowing “Wilma! I’m home!” Nail Shaggy’s slouching walk or Wonder Woman’s hands-on-hips stance.


Party Food


Whip up a batch of your fave characters’ go-to nibbles. For your main course, serve up Spongebob’s super crabby patties. Unless your guests are crab lovers, stick to hamburgers made from ground turkey for a leaner entrée. Pair with Sonic the Hedgehog’s chili dogs. Grab some low-fat hot dogs from the supermarket and prepare some chili to top ‘em off.


For dessert, make some Scooby snacks. Bake sugar cookies in the shape of bones and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to create snickerdoodles.


Seeing Double


Did two people come dressed in the same duds? Have a character-off to figure out who the best impersonator is. Let your guests choose the winner by the volume of their applause for each person’s performance. Will the real Minnie Mouse please stand up?




Download your fave shows’ theme songs and have a blast beltin’ out the lyrics you can remember and mumblin’ the rest. Don’t forget to shake ‘n’ shimmy along to the beat.


Watch Your Faves


Make a Facebook group for your party and ask your guests to submit their favorite cartoon episodes of all time. Screen the ones with the most votes during the party. Many oldies are now on DVD. Ask your buds if they’ve got ‘em handy or check out the library to see what’s in stock. When in doubt, check You Tube.
