Cebolinha/Jimmy Five is one of the main characters of the Brazilian comic book series Monica and Friends (also known as Turma da Mônica in the Brazilian translations), created by Mauricio de Sousa.
Why He Wocks
- The character is heavily inspired by great American comic book characters, most notably Charlie Brown.
- He is friendly and has a large number of friends, including being the leader of a club formed by all the boys in the neighborhood.
- He has an iconic design, most notably for its spiky hair of just five hair strands.
- His way of speaking (changing the letters R for L, or R by W in the english version) is also considered one of his most iconic points, deriving many jokes.
- His friendship/rivalry with Monica is very awesome. The same can be said about his friendship with Smudge.
- Sometimes he plays the role of an antagonist for Monica, always following the stereotype of a hilarious villain who creates plans in each episode and is always defeated along with his accomplices.
- His friendship/rivalry with Monica can easily be compared to the friendship/rivalry between Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny or Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.
- Just like Mônica he is always venturing out and defeating villains with the help of his friends.
- He is a persistent character who never gives up on his plans to defeat Monica, even though he almost always loses to her.
- He also proves to be very creative about his plans to fool Monica.
- Angelica Santos did a beautiful job by voice acting Jimmy Five, becoming one of the most iconic works of her entire career.
- Similar to Little Lulu's Tubby, sometimes he proves to be sexist to the girls.
- He can be very rude and cruel on some occasions not only to Mônica but also to his other friends, including his best friend Smudge trying to come up with plans to bathe him.
- His teen version in Turma da Mônica Jovem is quite flawed, mainly when it comes to his romance with Monica.
- Of course there are some people who hate him due to making fallible plans to get Mônica´s plush rabbit as well as calling her fatso, bucktooth, and many more.
- He is sometimes shown as a Butt-Monkey, more notable with Nutty Ned and sometimes Monica.
