Librarian seeks reference assistance-animation

I have a real reference question for which I BELIEVE data exist, but I simply cannot put my hands on it.

What are most recognizable animated characters in the U.S. by rank?
and a corallary,
Top 5 animated characters total licensing revenue by categories, (TV, apparel, toys, accessories).

There's this list, but it isn't exactly what I'm looking for.

And speaking of marketing with animation, behold the lawsuit against cereal maker Kellogg's.

1. Juan Valdez

2. Geico gecko

3. Budweiser Clydesdales

4. Energizer bunny

5. Doublemint twins

6. Coppertone girl

7. Kool Aid pitcher
