The 30 Most Iconic "Saturday Night Live" Characters, in GIFs

Rachel Dratch as Debbie Downer

Memorable Quote: "I love Disney World. It reminds me of my childhood. I mean before my two-year stint at Children's."

We were introduced to Debbie Downer in one of the best skits ever made. She managed to bum everyone out of their Mickey steak and eggs at the happiest place on Earth, Disney World.

What makes Debbie so iconic? It's not her theme song, it's not cracking up the rest of the cast, and it's not her worrying about mad cow disease. It's the "Wah-waaah" sound effect every time she says something depressing. If only that sound could play in real life every time our own Debbie Downers bring up the crashing job market or feline AIDS at our dinner parties.
