Here’s a list of throwback characters as zodiac signs! Let’s see who shares yours!


Our Capricorn line-up consists of Wanda from the Fairly Odd-Parents, Penny Proud from the Proud Family, Jimmy Neutron, Winifred (the witch with the red hair) from Hocus Pocus, Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Aladdin, and Popeye the Sailor Man. You can see a variety of the sign’s personality traits through all of them. Wanda is efficient, while Penny Proud is ambitious and humorous. Jimmy Neutron is ambitious and disciplined. Jack Skellington is practical and reserved. Winifred is pessimistic, fatalistic, and grudging. Popeye is healthy, functional, and disciplined.


Marnie Piper from Halloweentown, Sandy Cheeks (the squirrel) from Spongebob Squarepants, Bailey from the Suite Life on Deck, Remy the rat from Ratatouille, and Lilo from Lilo and Stitch belong to the Aquarius sign! This sign tends to be friendly, humanitarian, honorable, true-hearted, authentic, inventive, independent, and intelligent. They can also be unpredictable and someone who takes on journeys alone. This strong-willed group is sure to find adventure, but they are smart, kind, and brave enough to handle anything that comes their way.


Pisces are known for their positive qualities of being creative, sympathetic, self-sacrificing, and instinctive. On the more negative side, they can be idealist, uncommunicative, ambiguous, persuadable, and influenceable. Some Pisces characters consist of Sarah (the blonde witch) from Hocus Pocus, Theodore from Alvin and the Chipmunks, Bubbles (blonde-haired) from the Powerpuff Girls, and Lizzie McGuire. This kind-hearted group is usually led by someone of a more dominant side, but their compassion and intuition is timeless.


Aries are known for being lively, bold, self-assured, high-powered, perceptive, daring, and enthusiastic. Some of their more negative qualities can be self-interested, reckless, irritable, careless, and gritty. Some of the more notable throwback characters of this sign are Buttercup (dark-haired) from the Powerpuff Girls, Amanda from the Amanda Show, Tigger from Winne-the-Pooh, Lisa Simpson, and Eris from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Some of these characters may be a little rough around the edges. Still, they add exhilaration and anticipation to the story.


People belonging to the Taurus sign can be uncomplaining, dependable, loving, persistent, placid, and good-natured. They can also be long-suffering, envious, overprotective, resentful, stubborn, pleasure-seeking, and insatiable. Characters that belong to this sign are Edward Cullen from Twilight, Garfield the cat, Kermit the Frog from the Muppets, and Timone and Pumba from the Lion King. This group enjoys the simple things in life. Still, many of them can be dissatisfied or continually wanting more of something. Garfield can never have enough food. Timone and Pumba wish to enjoy their time leisurely in the jungle with all the bugs they could want. When it comes to helping someone they care about, they pull out all of the stops. They are there for those they love and tender-hearted.


Gemini’s are flexible, multifaceted, expressive, humorous, knowledgeable, eloquent, sprightly, and vivacious. They can also be skittish, strained, shallow, erratic, devious, and scrutinizing. Bugs Bunny, Aggie Cromwell (the elderly witch grandmother) from Halloweentown, CatDog, Tasmanian Devil, and Zack and Cody from The Suite Life on Deck fall into this category. All these characters are funny and liven up any show, but they also usually get into trouble or hide something. They seem to command respect while also make the entire room laugh.



Cancer’s are passionate, caring, spontaneous, innovative, creative, astute, vigilant, preservative, defensive, and empathetic. They can also be temperamental, inconsistent, unpredictable, wary, sensitive, and clingy. Tia and Tamara from Twitches, Miss Piggy from the Muppets, Moana, Barney Rubble from the Flintstones, Cat from Victorious and Sam and Cat, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Alex from Wizards of Waverly Place belong to this sign. They all seem to share being very passionate and driven characters. If they want something, then they have no problem going after it. Unfortunately, they can be easily offended and become peevish.



Leo’s are generous, good-natured, creative, passionate, enthusiastic, broad-minded, all-embracing, dedicated, unwavering, steadfast, and loving. The good traits sound great, but the destructive features sound terrible. Leo’s can be self-important, condescending, dominating, intrusive, insistent, and uncompromising. Not only that, but they love attention. Some well-known Leo’s consist of Harry Potter, Angelica Pickles (the whiny older sister) from Rugrats, Topanga from Boy Meets World, Will from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Johnny Bravo, and Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks. All of these characters share the love of the spotlight. Each of them enjoys a great deal of attention while also being warm-hearted and enthusiastic. They tend to be accepting, unbiased, and free-thinking. You can count on them to be kind to all and unwavering in their protection of those they love.


Virgo’s can be self-deprecating, shy, conscientious, dependable, practical, realistic, diligent, and analytical. Their less likable qualities consist of being finicky, withdrawn, worrying too much, overcritical, a perfectionist, and harsh. Well-known Virgo’s consist of Bella Swan from Twilight, Kim Possible, Squidward Tentacles from Spongebob Squarepants, Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Raven from That’s So Raven, and Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks. This is a fantastic group of classic characters. These characters tend to be educated, like their comfort, worry too much, and need to make everything perfect. They do well befriending the main character and balancing each other out, but they hold a spotlight of their own as well.


Libra’s are fair, sophisticated, romantic, delightful, relaxed, communicative, visionary, and non-violent. Unfortunately, they can also be ambiguous, influenceable, gullible, flirtatious, and self-indulgent. This sign hosts Arthur from Arthur, Casper from Casper The Friendly Ghost, Smurfette from Smurfs, and Mary (the fark-haired witch) from Hocus Pocus. These characters have certain refined charismas about themselves but tend to be influenced by factors in their environment. It might take them a while to figure out the right thing to do, but they always come through in the end.


Scorpio’s are resolute, assertive, poignant, instinctive, commanding, passionate, thrilling, and magnetic. They can also be envious, resentful, compelling, obsessive, secretive, and stubborn. So I know Loki, God of Mischief, is not exactly a throwback character, but he fits into being a Scorpio so well; there’s no way I couldn’t include him. The actual Scorpios are Shego from Kim Possible, Captain Jack Sparrow, Ash Ketchum (the red-headed main character) from Pokemon, The Pink Panther, and Kevin McCallister from Home Alone. That is an exciting bunch. A couple of things this group has in common is piercing eyes, charisma, and cunning behavior. They tend to have secrets, command attention and create suspense. They are sure to light up any screen with their dynamic personalities.


This sign is cheerful, hopeful, freedom-loving, amiable, good-humored, honest, straightforward, logical, clever, and composed. Those are some really fantastic traits! On the other side of the coin, they can be blindly optimistic, careless, irresponsible, superficial, inconsiderate, and restless. This sign’s characters are Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, Hannah Montana, Ed Ed Eddy, Cosmo from The Fairly OddParents, Spongebob Squarepants, Blossom (red-haired) from The Powerpuff Girls, and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. These characters are funny and usually upbeat, but they tend to not think before acting. They don’t usually take the consequences of their actions into consideration beforehand. Still, they keep their emotions in check when handling situations and use their logic to fix the problem.
