Shut Up And Take My MoneyTo some, this may sound rude, whereas to others, this may sound inquisitive, but as far as I'm concerned, I’ve always, always, always, been fascinated by people’s finances! Well, let’s face it; money makes the world go round and sometimes it’s nice to know who’s doing the pushing! Saying so while keeping in mind that I would never begrudge or be envious about anybody’s ability to earn. So, if you’re a bit like me, and you would like to know who has more lolly than Dolly, then please check out the following two infographics focusing on fictional fortunes.

Yes, that’s correct, I said 'fictional' — as in, not real — despite many of us being fully aware of this type of cosmetic-capitalist. They include people like Bruce Wayne, Willy Wonka, and Mister Burns, amongst others, with the wealthiest of them all being featured below (within a list denoting the top-ten highest earning companies seen on screen).

The Top-Ten Richest Businesses and Brands Seen on Film and TV (based on their real-life counterparts)
  1. Monty Python's The Meaning of Life: Very Big Corporation of America - £175.13 billion (Apple).
  2. The Beverly Hillbillies: Clampett Oil - £102.92 billion (Chevron Oil).
  3. The Simpsons: Globex - £83.77 billion (Google Alphabet).
  4. National Lampoon’s Vacation: Walley World - £42.02 billion (Walt Disney).
  5. Iron Man: Stark Industries - £38.99 billion (Lockheed Martin).
  6. Die Hard: Nakatomi Trading Corp. - £33.08 billion (Sumitomo Corp).
  7. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: Wonka Industries - £26.73 billion (Mars).
  8. Coming to America: Soul Glo - £23.03 billion (L’Oréal).
  9. Batman Begins: Wayne Enterprises - £18.32 billion (SpaceX).
  10. Pulp Fiction: Big Kahuna Burger - £17.42 billion (McDonald's).

Iron Man and Batman
Now I’m sure you will agree with me when I say that this is quite a surprising top-ten list; because sometimes we can’t help but forget how important certain companies, businesses, and corporations are to the characters who actually own them. After all, would there be an Iron Man if there wasn’t a Stark Industries? Or for that matter, would there be any replicants without a Tyrell Corp? No, I don’t think so, which is why I would like to draw your attention to the first of our two infographics! It was designed and created by paymentsense.co.uk (Europe’s largest merchant service provider), and in very simple terms it’s an interactive guide that's pretty easy to use. All you have to do is choose a category, select their order, and then read the details provided. So go on, what are you waiting for?

Mr Burns Money
The next infographic I would like to show you was kindly given to us by money-pod.co.uk. Unlike the previous one, it isn’t interactive, but it does tell us which cartoon characters are the top 100 highest earners, both on the big and small screen. This ranges from American Dad, to Family Guy, to The Simpsons and beyond, each time showing us who has the cash to splash, as opposed to, who has the dough to go. So, without any further ado, here, have a look at the most anticipated list since The Ten Commandments

The Top-Ten Highest-Earning Cartoons (Totals)

Wow! What a long list, eh? Too long some might say! So if you would like to see a show by show breakdown, why not have a look at the following overview (which includes the number of characters who helped contribute to each total).

  1. Futurama: $1,042,020,200 made by 10 characters.
  2. The Simpsons: $458,615,300 made by 14 characters.
  3. Rick & Morty: $390,184,600 made by 3 characters.

And on that note, I'd like to thank Payment Sense and Money Pod for sending us this information, before encouraging you to check out their respective websites. So go on, scram, have a look and try to be careful with your cash.
