      Your favorite cartoon characters are really old

      Kent and Alan decided to start everyone's weekend off on a very bad foot when they shared the actual ages of some beloved cartoon characters (if they aged), ensuring that every one of us felt super-old.


      In case you missed it, here's a list that will make you wonder if you should be asking for a senior citizen discount yet:



      • Bart Simpson: 36

      • Sponge Bob: 27

      • Arnold (of "Hey Arnold!"): 26

      • Strawberry Shortcake: 49 (Though this is questionable -- launched in 1977, Shortcake's date of birth is unknown, as is her age at creation)

      • Beavis and Butthead: 35

      • Jem: 45ish (Jerrica Benton's age is never actually given, but she's around 17 at the start of the show)

      • Speed Racer: 73

      • Penny (from "Inspector Gadget"): 40

      • Daria: 31

      • Tommy Pickles: 23


      Ouch.
