What would life be without cartoons? We all grew up watching them, and some of us cool kids still do. Where would we be without the bickering of Dexter and Deedee; fighting to get his sister out of his way too scientific place in the house that doesn't look nearly big enough for a massive laboratory like his; or the everyday shenanigans of Peter Griffin who just can't seem to go a single day without getting into trouble or causing some sort of scene?

But what if these famous fictional faces came down to the one and only Crossroads? I mean we stand as a pretty good stopping point. We are smack dap in the middle of well, everything in South Texas. So why wouldn't these cartoon characters stop on by?

If Hank Hill stopped by you know the first place he would Google Maps would be a local propane store. He might say something like "Siri, find propane and propane accessories in Victoria Texas." Well, I'll tell you what, we got more than that, we got spooky places for Scooby-Doo and the crew to explore, bars for Peter and the crew, and of course some donut places for Homer Simpson.

Not everyone in cartoons is from Texas but they ought to be, and if they're not, they wish they were. That's why we have put together this list of places you could spot some of the most well-known cartoon characters. Take a break and check out some of the hilarious places some of these rowdy characters would land in the Crossroads and see if you agree.


  • 1

    Beavis and Butthead

    First stop: Maximus. They just want to party and have a little fun. Chances are, they would eventually get kicked out before the night ended, though they aren't even of age to get in.

  • 2

    Family Guy

    Peter and his crew love to throw back a few cold ones. You could probably catch them at Dodge City. The laid-back vibe in this bar is more their style. Although there are no booths, the guys could grab a low table for Joe.

  • 3

    Jimmy Neutron

    Jimmy Neutron, boy genius, would probably make his way over to the Discovery Museum. So, naturally, he would jump at the opportunity to volunteer, maybe even offering to do some informative classes or demonstrations.

  • 4

    Hank Hill

    If this King of the Hill star made his way down to the Crossroads, he would definitely be roaming around Talbott propane, maybe making friends or steaking out the competition.

  • 5

    Pepe Le Pew

    Sorry, this might be in bad taste. But, if you know, you know.

  • 6

    Sandy Cheeks

    This Texas native squirrel would probably be found at De Leon Plaza. Roaming around looking for nuts as she takes a break from her science work.

  • 7

    G.I. Joe

    This buff military man would be testing his limits at the Armory. Their rock climbing wall would make an excellent challenge for himself and a good workout.

  • 8

    Ninja Turtles

    Thanks to Leonardo, the whole gang would hang out and plan their day at Paints Underground Pizza.

  • 9

    Inspector Gadget

    Looking to put together his next contraption, you could probably run into inspector gadget at Best Buy. Don't question why he has a toothbrush, controller, and video surveillance all in the same basket.

  • 10

    The Smurfs

    Watch your step; the Smurfs would land themselves in the Rose Garden at Riverside Park. Then, the entire community would find themself right at home surrounded by nature.

  • 11

    South Park

    Head on down to my favorite coffee shop, The Box Coffee, where you can probably find Tweek getting completely wired on caffeine.

  • 12

    The Simpsons

    You can find Homer waiting outside of Shipleys, drooling as they wrap up construction on Navarro.

  • 13

    Dexter's Laboratory- Dexter

    Although he is young, Dexter would find a way to get access into DuPont, where he would try to get ahold of some chemicals and material for his laboratory.

  • 14

    Dexters Laboratory- Dede

    While Dexter is roaming around Chemical plants, his sister, Dede, is doing her own thing in Victoria. You can catch her at a recital in the afternoon Monday and Wednesday at Victoria Ballet Theatre, doing some pliés and pirouettes.

  • 15


    If Scooby-Doo and his crew headed down to Victoria, it would probably be to investigate the Salem Bridge. You could catch them around 3 am search around for all things spooky.
