25 Most Sinister Childhood Villains Of All Time

Posted by on August 28, 2012

You might think the world would be a better place if villains didn’t exist, but without the stories of the heroes who fight against them, life would be downright boring. As much as we’ve rooted against them, villains are a vital component to every fairytale. Deep down, all they want is a bit of the same admiration the heroes receive. In honor of these underappreciated evildoers, here are the 25 most sinister childhood villains of all time.


The Grinch

The Grinch stole more than just Christmas – he captured the hearts of many a tyke in Dr. Seuss’ charming holiday tale. But once he learned the true meaning of family, friends, and the holiday spirit, this misunderstood rascal changed his thieving ways.


The Big Bad Wolf

He huffed and he puffed and he blew their first two houses down. Fortunately for the three little pigs, the wolf wasn’t the brightest crayon in the box and they outsmarted him in the end.


The Hunter from Bambi

He’s not necessarily the first person you might associate with the word villain, but thinking about all the pain and emotional trauma he caused children everywhere, I think he definitely fits the description.


Wile E. Coyote

Although The Road Runner did provoke him sometimes, Wile E. Coyote wasted his time chasing the little guy through the desert. Anytime he did almost catch him, an anvil to the head thwarted his efforts.


Angelica Pickles

She may have been bossy, spoiled, and mean to the Rugrats, but she rushed to their defense if anyone else messed with them. Maybe Angelica had a soft spot in her heart for those “dumb babies” after all.
