TOP FIVE MOST COMMONLY USED CARTOON PHYSICS

Cartoon Physics is basically a jocular system of laws of physics that supersedes normal laws that are commonly applied for animation for humorous effect. In a much simpler explanation, these are the things or scenarios that we commonly see in most cartoons that are not possible to happen in real life. Most of these are done in exaggerated and unimaginable ways. Listed below are five of the most commonly used Cartoon Physics by our beloved cartoon characters. This is generally a revised post from my 2009 entry. Have fun!
TOP FIVE MOST COMMONLY USED CARTOON PHYSICS

TOP 5 MOST COMMONLY USED CARTOON PHYSICS
"CARTOON'S STRONGEST SPECIES"
In Cartoons, Music usually tames bigger beast but if the music fails, then you might want to arm yourself  with a mouse or the tiniest creature as possible because it seems like toon mice and other small creatures are the toughest and smartest of their species. They usually possess unimaginable strength despite of their small size. Cartoons also run or jump in a very exaggerated way. When running, you can barely see the movements of their feet other than a circular motion to indicate that they are in a hurry.

"CRASHING THROUGH WALLS"
So you are in a hurry and you like to run away? Well, Cartoons have one quick way to do that. They do not bother crashing through walls without showing any signs that they get hurt at all. What makes it more interesting is that they will leave a trail or a hole in the wall that shapes like them. It will capture the exact details including the fingers and ears. This also applies when they fall down from such great height. Once they landed on the ground, a hole will be dug that is shaped and patterned based on their last position or gesture.

"QUICK METABOLISM"
Eaten too much? Well in cartoons, you do not have to worry about extra calories and you can eat as many as you want because their metabolism are extremely fast and they can get back into their normal shape instantly without the need of working out. Their stomach can grow bigger than their size or as round as a watermelon. They can store foods more than any typical human can do. Aside from that, they can swallow big chunks without being chocked or without the need of chewing them. Oh by the way, since we are talking about their physical features, have you noticed that all cartoon characters will only have four fingers in each hand? Well, that's the normal toon digit for digits.

"GUNS AND EXPLOSIVES ARE FRIENDLY WEAPONS"
Oh no! A Gun shot!! Well, in cartoons, you don't have to worry that much because any guns or explosives will just make them black , smokey and sooty. In Cartoons, any explosive weapons cannot cause any fatal injuries and you don't need to cover your eyes at all because even it is technically brutal and cruel, cartoons will deliver it in a very friendly way to make it suitable for younger audiences. I also like to note that once the cartoon character get's dizzy, don't be surprised to see stars or birds flying around their head. 

THE MOST COMMONLY USED CARTOON PHYSICS
"THE LAW OF GRAVITY"

Well, probably the most common scenario that we can find in most cartoons. Any body suspended in space will remain in space until they are made aware of the situation. Wile E Cayote is a good example of cartoon character who always get himself in such situation. So when you run off a cliff, make sure to keep running and remember not to look down unless your feet are touching the ground on the other side. It is also interesting to note that in any cartoons it seems like everything falls faster than an anvil.
