Quick character designs

Recently I've been taking a bit of a break from CG (which I need to deal with on a daily basis at work), to go back to good old hand drawing.  It's been really great.  I've been working a lot with character design.

Where is the fine line between appealing and cutesy?  How does one create characters that are both simple and memorable?  These are questions that I've been trying to deal with in my work as of late.  

Here's a little taste of the results.

I'm not sure which of these characters I like the best.  I guess I like them all for different reasons.
I really like the guy in the top right corner of this page.
For some reason the dumpy tie wearing guy at the top of this page always cracks me up.
