Who says true love is limited to live-action? Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 cute cartoon couples on TV.

For this list, we’ve selected the couples that, despite the craziness of their shows, still managed to warm our hearts with their dedication to each other. Warning, there will be a few spoilers ahead.

#10: Bob & Linda Belcher
“Bob’s Burgers” (2011-)

The pressures of work life can be strenuous on any relationship, let alone a marriage. Bob and Linda Belcher have to deal with a struggling burger restaurant, three kids and various shenanigans that make working life almost unbearable. Still, they always try to make the best of their situations and never give up on each other. They may disagree and argue every day, but their commitment to each other never comes into question.

#9: Fred Jones & Daphne Blake
“Scooby-Doo” franchise (1969-2013)

Even back in 1969, cartoons had their “will-they-or-won’t-they couples”. And few were more frustrating than Fred and Daphne. These members of Mystery Incorporated were always partnering up together whenever the group had to split up to look for clues. Years and years of waiting and not even a peck on the cheek, what gives! Ah well, it kept us guessing throughout their many exploits. In fact, they even tied the knot in the revived series! About time!

#8: Aang & Katara
“Avatar: The Last Airbender” (2005-08)

These two have been to hell and back together, and we’ve loved watching their relationship evolve from the first episode. What started as two friends fighting against impossible odds led to romance that survived the horrors of war, death and eventual liberation of the entire world. What better way to end this incredible journey than the triumph of love over all odds?

#7: Cosmo & Wanda Fairywinkle Cosma
“The Fairly OddParents” (2001-)

You have to be pretty dedicated to stick with someone for a lifetime. But you’d have to be either off your rocker or madly in love to stay together for ten thousand years! Which category do these fairy godparents fall into? Both. Wanda is kind and understanding, if a bit prone to stress. Cosmo is…well… regardless; it goes to show that love can withstand practically anything.

#6: Lola & Bugs
“The Looney Tunes Show” (2011-)

While these two may have first met on the set of the big screen nostalgia-fest “Space Jam,” the new Looney Tunes series reunited them in a relationship that’s as touching as it is hilarious. Bugs’ dry-witted and calm personality is matched up against Lola’s mile-a-minute absent-mindedness. While initially put off by her frantic nature, Bugs eventually warms to her quirky attitude before their love blossoms into its loony glory. Nicely done Mr. Bunny, nicely done.

#5: Phineas Flynn & Isabella Garcia-Shapiro
“Phineas and Ferb” (2007-)

Young love is as sweet as it is frustrating; just look at these two for proof! Phineas is the quick-witted kid who comes up with the craziest ideas. Isabella is the incredibly talented Fireside Girls leader with one heck of a crush. While the romance is mostly one-sided with Isabella secretly pining for her oblivious sweetheart, it’s refreshing to see this rare kind of relationship portrayed in such a positive way.

#4: Kif Kroker & Amy Wong
“Futurama” (1999-2003, 2008-13)

While Leela and Fry may be the couple we were secretly rooting for, we were all happily shocked to see these this lieutenant and Martian relationship bloom into one of “Futurama”’s favorite couples. Amy is outgoing and up for anything, while Kif is shy and keeps a diary. Probably one of the relationships on our list that comes closest to reality, these two opposites can’t keep their hands off each other. Way to go, Kif!

#3: Robin & Starfire
“Teen Titans” (2003-06)

Romance and superheroes seem to go hand-in-hand, and what’s better than an adolescent relationship caught between awkward confessions and a constant bombardment of supervillains? Throughout the series’ run, Robin and Starfire are shown to care deeply for each other, but they don’t make that final push until the animated TV movie where the two teens finally confess their love in a moment that’s beautiful but cliché. Classic!

#2: Jake the Dog & Lady Rainicorn
“Adventure Time” (2010-)

They’re two anthropomorphic beings so wacky you’d never have thought anything of substance could come out of it. But you’d be dead wrong. Though it was tough to choose between Finn and Flame Princess, as well as Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig, Jake and Rainicorn ultimately won out. Unlike a lot of other couples on our list, these two start off in a relationship, and as episodes progress, we only see them overcome obstacles many wouldn’t dare face. For example, the shape-shifting bulldog and half-rainbow, half-unicorn get caught between being loyal to your friends or partner, straddle the line between protective and obsessive, and struggle with parenthood. Never judge a book by its cover!

Before we unveil our number one lovey-dovey couple, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Doug Funnie & Patti Mayonnaise “Doug” (1991-2000)
- Mr. Krabs & Mrs. Poppy Puff “SpongeBob SquarePants” (1999-)
- Daniel “Danny” Fenton/Danny Phantom & Samantha “Sam” Manson “Danny Phantom” (2004-07)

#1: Barney & Betty Rubble
“The Flintstones” (1960-66)

The older generation won out in the end. These two fell in love and have never looked back. The neighbors of the Flintstones, the Rubbles have lived the dream when it comes to the married life. Series main character, Fred Flintstone, often has arguments with his wife Wilma, and has been known to flirt with other women from time to time. Barney does none of that, and while Betty may jump on the bandwagon of hitting her husband when he steps out of the line, she proves that she loves him dearly with her affectionate nature.
