Some of the catchiest tunes folks walk around humming to themselves come from cartoons. Whether it's the theme to The Flintstones or SpongeBob SquarePants, from classic cartoons to recent sensations, everyone can find a song they love.

Listed below are the top sites I recommend for downloading quotes and songs from your favorite cartoons.

1. 'The Simpsons'
