You just need to know how to draw them in an original way. So original that it might even become a successful strip! I don't need to tell you how they are made. You already know.
So, let's see how you can draw one that is more original. First, draw a circle for the head and a rectangle for the body. Add some legs and arms to your character.

Look at all those characters below. Some are really simple (2) (5). Others have big eyes (7) (11). One girl has even a small breast (9)! The lesson here is simple.
