Eggs are supposed to sit still in a nest until they are ready to hatch, but eggs running around on two legs are a familiar cartoon trope. You can learn how to draw a cartoon egg with the help of this easy drawing tutorial.

Eggs with legs have appeared in numerous cartoon series over the years. Have you seen any of the following egg characters?

The animated television cartoon Garfield and Friends featured a character that closely resembles the egg in our illustration. Sheldon appeared as a egg with legs.

He was a baby chicken who decided not to hatch - but his twin brother hatched as a healthy chick. In one episode, Sheldon's egg is cracked open, only to reveal yet another eggshell underneath.

The 1944 Looney Tunes short "Booby Hatched" depicts the misadventures of a duck egg walking around on its own as its mother searches frantically for it. A 1948 Merrie Melodies short called The Shell Shocked Egg features a baby turtle named Clem who is looking for a place to hatch. He is depicted as an egg running around on two turtle legs.
