1. Po (Kung Fu Panda)
We will start the list of the funniest Dreamworks characters with Po – the main protagonist from the Kung Fu Panda franchise.

2. Mr. Peabody (Mr. Peabody and Sherman)
Mr. Peabody is probably the smartest one of all Dreamworks funny characters. He is the main character of the film “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”. Unlike other dogs that only know how to bark and…act like a normal dog, Mr. Peabody is actually an extremely smart puppy, who is interested in intellectual pursuits. He has devoted himself to knowledge and science, he has also invented various interesting things. However, he is not a nerd, he is indeed cool and fun and his smart-look appearance only makes him more hilarious. He is the direct reason that leads to countless funny situations during the movie. No wonder why he is always among the funniest Dreamworks male characters of all time.
3. The Penguin Squad (Madagascar Series)
The next name on the funnest Dreamworks characters list is the Penguin Squad from the Madagascar series, namely Skipper, Private, Kowalski and Rico. Rarely do we have any animal characters as … beneficial, talented and mischievous like the penguins in the Madagascar series of Dreamworks. They are among the funniest Dreamworks characters in the Dreamworks movie collection. Thanks to their abilities as super spies, these penguins have helped the main character group out of danger so many times, as well as push them into new adventures. Dreamworks is particularly interested in this penguins squad, so much that they have already released a movie about these Dreamworks animal characters.
4. Puss (Shrek series and Puss in Boots)
Although only appearing as a supporting character from the second part of the series about the ogre Shrek, the famous cat still quickly proves to be one of the Dreamworks funniest characters. Not only a funny character to make fun of, Puss is also wise, alert, careful and wicked. If necessary, the Puss in Boots can instantly transform from an innocent cute kitten into a knight with excellent sword fighting skills. With the romantic voice of actor Antonio Banderas, the image of Puss the boots walks up like a gentleman full of nobility and mystery. The success of the 2011 film about Puss himself has further confirmed the audience’s love for one of the Dreamworks funniest guys.
5. Donkey (Shrek Series)
Another character from the Shrek series deserves to be one of the funniest characters from Dreamworks. If the Puss in Boots leaves an impression with a diverse transformation style, the Donkey – Shrek’s troublesome companion through the whole series, simply appears to be among the funniest Dreamworks characters of all time. However, that is more than enough. Comedian Eddie Murphy’s character-shaping and humorous voice-over made the audience laugh whenever Donkey appears and talks. There is no need to be a character with depth, even with a somewhat naive personality, Donkey can still leave an indelible impression on every fan Dreamworks in general and Shrek in particular.
6. Megamind (Megamind)
Megamind is the main protagonist of the movie that bears his name. He is an alien, which is also known as the last one of the Glaupunk Quadrant. Although he is an alien, he still looks likeable and funny with his blue skin and his very slim body. He is one of the funniest Dreamworks characters. He is so full of himself that he can compliment his appearance and intelligence at any time, which sometimes can make us laugh so hard. He also has problems with pronouncing words, even though we are not sure whether he does it intentionally or not. This flaw has led to various ridiculous and humorous situations in the movie. It is true that he is considered as a villain, however, it does not stop him from being among Dreamworks’ funniest characters ever.
7. Hiccup (How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy)
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is the main character of the series How To Train Your Dragons.

Although he is the son of Berk tribal chief, Hiccup does not think much about succeeding his father’s title but likes to set out to explore new lands. Hiccup is also not appreciated by everyone in the village for his muscle strength, but in return, he is very intelligent and kind. He is considered among funniest Dreamworks characters mostly because of his sense of humor, which causes many hilarious situations in the movie.
8. Gloria (Madagascar Series)
Gloria is just a Dreamworks Madagascar supporting character, however, she is actually a fan favourite character of the whole franchise, mostly because she is one of the most hilarious Dreamworks characters of all 24 Dreamworks movies. She can easily make anyone laugh with her appearance only. She looks exactly like a normal hippo with her grey skin and fat belly. Her oversized body has led to various funny scenes during every movie of Madagascar. She is passive when facing any problem, however, she is also the one that will do whatever it takes to help her friends. Her cheerfulness and positivity can make anyone laugh real hard. This explains why she is among the funniest Dreamworks female characters of all time.
