The internet is obsessed with rainbow-fying everything. In an effort to become more magical creatures, we've turned everything from our hair to grilled cheese into a spectrum of colors. And you know who is really probably to blame for it?

Lisa Frank, the 90s colorful stationary queen.

In 1979, Lisa Frank began creating characters across the ROYGBIV spectrum and by the 1990s, every girl made it her personal mission to acquire all the Lisa Frank stickers, folders, and Trapper Keepers they could. And every girl had a favorite. 

While some of them were iconically cute, there were a few WTF characters we could have done without. So we decided to rank our favorites in order of general awesomeness to settle the character debate once and for all.

GIVE ME CUTE AND CUDDLY ANIMALS DAMMIT.

90s nightmare-fuel.

She does get props for her flare jeans (which 90s babies stole from their hippie parents).

29

"Hip-Hop Bears"

I've never really been down with cultural appropriation. 

28

"Vintage Bears"

They are slightly demonic looking, so that's a no for me. 

27

"Roxie and Rollie"

These two are glamorous AF, but are def not as cool as Frank's other kitties. 

26

"Blanca"

STOP LOOKING AT ME, SWAN. 

25

"Miss Galaxy"

All hail this intergalactic space beauty queen.

24

"Buzz"

I feel as though most kids have an irrationally large fear of bees, so I'm not exactly sure why Buzz would be a top fave. His beanie character was cute AF though. 

23

"Bananigans"

This girl had style and a dope name. 

22

"Dashly"

I know Lisa Frank's thing is colors, but goddamn this has to be one of her prettiest, rainbow-est, characters.  

21

"Ruckus, Raider, and Risky"

puppies Lisa Frank

THOSE EYES DOE. They are so cute, but they just aren't as iconic as some of their other puppy counterparts. 

20

"Angel Kitty"

Angel Kitty was adorable, but she kinda forced me to confront my mortality and I just don't need that from a cartoon. 

19

"Peekaboo"

Everything about this little guy makes me get cuteness aggression; I love him so much I just want to squeeze him!

18

"Forrest"

Diggin' on his tropical vibe and sweet little smirk.

17

"Hollywood Bear"

I think his swag intimated me as child. 

16

"Princess Pearls"

This pup is super sweet, but a little too prissy of a character. 

15

"Love Penguins"

These loving little guys are probably the best snugglers. 

14

"Spotty and Dotty"

DALMATIONS

These cutie pie pups painted themselves into a rainbow of spots and make me truly wish that was exactly how spotted dogs worked. 

13

"Ballerina Bunnies"

Extra points to Lisa Frank for creating cute, pudgy bunnies that still looked like graceful dancers. 

12

"Skye"

Majestic AF. 

11

"Echo"

And thus began every '90s girl's obsession with dolphins. 

10

"Reef"

There is something super serene about this smiling seal. 

9

"Majesty"

Two words: HAIR. GOALS.

"Rainbow Chaser"

Pretty sure I tucked roses behind my ears for solid 4 months when I discovered her on a Trapper Keeper.

7

"Max Splash"

This sweet little guy popped up around the same time Wyland artworks blew up, and seriously made everyone want to be an IRL mermaid, 

6

"Roary"

Tell me you didn't want to cuddle this thing for the rest of eternity, and I'll know you're a filthy liar.

5

"Casey and Candy"

puppers

This duo was always snacking on some tasty eats, and for that, I not only love them but deeply respect them. 

4

"Playtime and Sunflower"

kittles

Their angelic faces make me actually resent my mom for having a cat allergy, thusly preventing me from owning them IRL. 

3

"Painter Bear"

This happy and colorful little guy was the face of Lisa Frank, and his iconic status cannot be left unhonored. 

2

"Hunter"

tiger

With his rainbow fur and piercing glare, he became one of the most ubiquitous characters in the Lisa Frank universe, appearing on everything from folders to bedsheets.

Unicorns win. Every. Damn. Time.
