Who’s Batatinha? Or Bafo de Onça? Matraca Trica? Vandinha? Tião Gavião?

If you didn’t grow up in Brazil, there is a very slim chance you will recognize the names of these very famous cartoon characters from the Disney, Hanna Barbera, Marvel and other producers.

I made a quite extensive list of their translated names in Brazilian versions – something that will, I am sure, enlighten your week. Characters whose name I didn’t translate probably kept their original names in Brazil. If you have any contributions, please, let me know in your comments.

I also added a few famous cartoons in their Brazilian versions for those prone to nostalgia.
