Someone who becomes obsessed with cartoon character(s). Toonphiles exist in all genres, from hard-core anime to Disney cartoons. Some examples of characters that toonphiles get obsessed with: Gadget Hackwrench, Fifi la Fume, Pepe le Pew, Sailor Moon, Nala, Ryoko, etc.

Part of the reason for this attraction can be physical; cartoon characters can always be drawn to be the ideal form that exudes sexuality, like Minerva Mink. Another reason can be a fixation with the character's personality; how many geeks were obsessed over Gadget Hackwrench's ingenuity?

Toonphiles can also be referred to as drooling fanboys if they are obsessed enough.
