Ellen DeGeneres has decided to step in to once and for all end the debate about which popular cartoon characters are and are not gay.
Ellen, who jokingly referred to herself as the “nation’s leading expert on gay”, began by talking about Velma Dinkley from “Scooby Doo” who has been generating a lot of chatter online following the announcement from HBO Max that the character will get her own spin-off series.
Velma “does all the things that lesbians do,” Ellen joked.
Ellen also supports the theory that Spongebob is gay. “He spends a lot of time with his friend Patrick. He has a pet snail. I don’t know if that’s gay. It just sounds like it is though,” she told her audience.
Bugs Bunny, however, is not gay according to Ellen. “Dressing in drag does not make you gay,” she said of Bugs, adding that he’s “just kinky.”
But what about Elsa from “Frozen”? “[N]ot sure why this rumor started in the first place,” Ellen said. “I guess as soon as a Disney princess doesn’t spend the entire movie pursuing a man, that makes her gay.”
Ellen then gave rapid-fire answers on a host of other cartoons.
“Snagglepuss? Gay. Ursula? Gay. He-Man? Gay. Yogi and Boo-Boo? Gay. Flounder? Gay. Four of the seven dwarfs? Gay. Jiminy Cricket? Gay. The candlestick from ‘Beauty and the Beast?’ French or gay, same thing.”
