Keep it real: characters from children's cartoons have had a significant impact on all of our lives. We put them on the highest pedestal; they are immortal. Which is why it's so tough to watch them get put in handcuffs.

Nothing spells out adulthood quite like seeing the characters you grew up with getting carted off by police. Because we find the humor in this, we've compiled this brief history of children's characters getting arrested.

Who says there's no fun in growing up?
