Toot from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''.''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' is a CaptainErsatz of famed inkblot character WesternAnimation/BettyBoop. She is DeliberatelyMonochrome in a colorful world of {{Genre Refugee}}s, has a large head and big dot eyes, and dresses like someone from the early 20th century.



* WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat, created in 1919.
* The earliest Creator/{{Disney}} characters are, or at least were, this.
** The characters in the ''WesternAnimation/NewmanLaughOGrams''.
** All the cartoon characters from the ''WesternAnimation/AliceComedies''. Julius the cat either looks like a tuxedo cat done in this style or like a blatant {{Expy}} of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat sans the cheeks.
** WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit, Fanny, Homer, and Sadie/Ortensia
** WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse, WesternAnimation/MinnieMouse, WesternAnimation/{{Pete}}, Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} (known as Dippy Dawg back then) are this in their earliest appearances, but have evolved from this, most notably by trading in their white muzzles or faces for peach-toned ones, since the mid to late thirties.
* WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes:
** WesternAnimation/BoskoTheTalkInkKid & Honey, two InformedSpecies human characters from the earliest cartoons. Even though they [[CartoonCreature look more like dog/cat crosses]] in WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures, they are still drawn in this style.
** Piggy and Fluffy, Goopy Geer, Foxy and Roxy (blatant {{Captain Ersatz}}es of Mickey and Minnie Mouse), Buddy and Cookie (expies of Bosko and Honey, but obviously human), Wilbur the cat, and Beans the cat are done in this style. Beans, who is made in the mid-thirties, is sometimes drawn with a peach-tone muzzle.
** Foxy and Roxy have been redesigned to look more original for the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' segment, "Two-Tone Town."
** Goopy's fur is white in his original cartoons, unlike in his ''Tiny Toon Adventures'' appearance in which he's black-furred.
** Many [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] in the 1930s (which, unlike Looney Tunes, didn't have a regular cast) are drawn in this style.
* WesternAnimation/BettyBoop and Bimbo are both quite rubbery, even though Betty looks a lot more shapely.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}}'' cartoons of TheThirties are this, especially with the characters' eyes, the cats in some of the cartoons, and Olive Oyl's RubberHoseLimbs. The earliest Popeye cartoons also have {{FunnyAnimal}}s drawn in this style.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' parodies this in the episode "Hill Billy".
