“As for Toon Link, I call it ‘Link-eyed cat.’ I’ll admit it took courage to make this design more cartoon. In the end if we took this decision is that the time we really wanted to make a game typical Nintendo. An adventure that represents the soul of our society. So Link is a boy rather usual class, it was completely reinvented with a more streamlined look. Besides, it allowed us to create a real distinction between his adventures on home console and portable. Each has its own identity the coup and that is just fine. So yes, well I know, there are plenty of people who hate the cartoon version … but there he is!”

I actually really enjoy Toon Link and every game that goes with him. In fact… Zelda fans do not shoot me when I say this…Wind Waker may be the most fun I had in a Zelda game. (note I did not say best zelda game)
