Many cartoon characters can be seen with berets. In the Flemish Suske & Wiske series many appear, like in Tin Tin (professor Calculus / Tournesol) and many others. Not so much in American cartoons, Charles. M. Schulz' Snoopy being the proverbial exception - not counting Donald Duck of course, who wears a sailor's hat.
Snoopy is often pictured as the typical Frenchman, or French-dog for that matter, alternatively as a beret wearing film director.

Originally meant to be named Sniffy,
the little dog was called Snoopy at his first
appearance on 4 October 1950.

More on Snoopy's history here.
