10 Favorite Screen Characters Tag

10 Favorite Screen Characters Tag | Majestic Adventures

Hello hello! I have been nominated by the lovely Sarah @ Life of a Homeschooler to participate in a “10 Favorite Screen Characters Tag.” My second ever tag. (You can read my first one here) I love tags. I am very excited. So, here’s what’s gonna happen here. Below I am going to share some characters that I like from some of my favorite shows! Boom baby! You guys ready? Let’s see if we share any favorites!

Barney Fife | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures1. Barney Fife (Don Knotts) | The Andy Griffith Show

Barney. Dear Barney. He’s my all-time favorite character of The Andy Griffith Show. Working as a deputy in small town Mayberry, Barney’s full of big and wild ideas. Barney gets worked up about the littlest things, and small towns like Mayberry really have no need of tear gas and smoke bombs, but don’t tell him that. πŸ˜‰ He carries his one bullet in his front pocket because of how many times he’s accidentally fired it! Even though he sometimes meddles in other people’s business, he means well and genuinely cares about others. (Plus Don Knotts himself is just hilarious. The Ghost and Mr. Chicken and The Shakiest Gun in the West are hilarious, and I love his character in both those movies as well!)


Data | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures2. Data (Brent Spiner) | Star Trek: Next Generation

Data the Android! Because he’s a robot, he doesn’t have emotions or feelings, and he’s constantly trying to understand human behavior and to be more “humanlike.” Some of the things he says though are just plain funny, like the picture. I can hear him saying it in my head in a monotone tone (since he doesn’t have emotions he doesn’t have any fluctuation in his voice) and it just makes me chuckle every time. (Most) everything he does is logical, and that’s just Data!


Olaf | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures3. Olaf (Josh Gad) | Frozen

FROZEN. I didn’t see this movie when it first came out, so I was pretty anxious to see what made this movie so great. So when I did finally see it, Olaf became was my (one of many) favorite character. He’s hilarious! He enjoys warm hugs and doesn’t “have a skull. Or bones.” He enjoys all things warm, but doesn’t have much experience with heat. And he’s a true believer that some people are worth melting for. With these reasons and more, it’s easy to see why so many people love Olaf! He’s a happy-go-lucky snowman buddy, and frankly, super adorable.


Samwise the Brave | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures4. Samwise the Brave (Sean Astin) | The Lord of the Rings

Dear ol’ Sam is my favorite character in the LOTR trilogy. He’s loyal, brave (hence his name, Samwise the Brave) and perseveres. He stuck with Frodo even when Frodo got really loopy and weird because of The Ring. Sam went back for Frodo and saved him from the orcs and a giant spider, and then carried Frodo up Mount Doom! Sam’s a true friend, and that’s why he’s earned a rank on ten of my top favorite screen characters.


Larry the Cucumber | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures5. Larry the Cucumber (Mike Nawrocki) | VeggieTales

I love VeggieTales. Larry the Cucumber is my favorite. While he’s not busy being LarryBoy with “super suction ears!” he’s singing silly songs about his lips, Cebu’s, and water buffalos. He’s part of a gang of pirates, The Pirate Who Don’t Do Anything. What do they do? They don’t do anything.Β  He’s known for losing his hairbrush and, in case you were wondering, he’s a cucumber, not a pickle.


Mr. Howell | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures6. Mr. Howell (Jim Backus) | Gilligan’s Island

I’ve watched and rewatched Gilligan’s Island many many times. I love all the characters, but I really like the billionare Mr. Howell. He thinks about ways to make more money, and sometimes just about himself, but cares about the other castaways on the island as well. He makes sure he has his teddy bear when he goes to bed at night, but if someone really needs it, he’ll loan it out.


Jessica Fletcher | Favorite Screen Characters Murder, She Wrote7. Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) | Murder, She Wrote

I love Murder, She Wrote. Jessica is pretty amazing because she’s not only a (world?)famous mystery author, she solves mysteries as well. I mean, 12 seasons worth of solved mysteries. That takes some pretty awesome detective work there. It also makes for a really awesome show. Sometimes I can’t even guess who did it, and I like to be surprised. She helps her many friends, nieces and nephews when they get in trouble. Plus, there’s typewriters, and I really like typewriters. (The looks of them at least. I have never used one.)


Elizabeth Thatcher | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures8. Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) | When Calls the Heart

I love this show. Despite the fact that it doesn’t follow the book but for about five little details, it is a marvelous show. A little predictable, but still. Marvelous. And I haven’t seen the second season yet, so I am kindly requesting you please no spoilers! Anyways, this is about Elizabeth. First of all, I have to admire how she journeyed out West to become a school teacher. She left her comfortable home in the East to teach little kiddos, after all! It wasn’t what she was used to, but she didn’t give up. She can be stubborn and determined, but she’s loving and loyal.


Rob Petrie | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures9. Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) | The Dick Van Dyke Show

Rob Petrie, comedy writer for the Alan Brady Show. The whole show is just hilarious, I really can’t narrow it down to just Rob as my favorite! Other than writing, he enjoys skiing (but that didn’t end up well), sailing (neither did that) and is a constant tripper. I love the jokes that he and his writing staff come up with for Alan’s television show. He loses things too, from a brand new watch to the script for this week’s show!


Dory | Favorite Screen Characters, Majestic Adventures10. Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) | Finding Nemo

P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. I think that’s all the second address we have memorized. (I can’t take credit for that, I found that on Pinterest.) Dory, a fish who loves parties, also loves to help out clownfish she meets in the ocean. She’s also not too good on names, as you can tell. She suffers from short term memory loss, and isn’t quite sure where her family is. I’m excited for Finding Dory!!!


Ta-da! A few of my favorite characters from a few of my favorite movies. πŸ˜€ What about you? Do we share any favorite movies or characters? I’d love to hear your faves in the comments, or read about them on your blog! (Just leave a link so I know where to go. ;))Β  I was supposed to nominate people, but I think I’ll leave the nominations open to whoever wants to do it. So if you have a blog, this is your official notification that you have been tagged for the 10 Favorite Screen Characters Tag. πŸ˜€

    EEEEP. THIS IS SO LUOVELY. THIS IS GREAT, EMMA. :”) I love to see your favourite characters! Are these in a specific order, or are these just listed? Do you have one ALL. TIME. FAVE. out of all screen-things? πŸ˜€ I don’t know if we share any favourite characters, BUT, I have only seen, like, three or four of these things, so. *blush from me* XD I am trusting your opinion on these things. ;D


    • Emma June 8, 2015 / 8:34 am

      Thank you Koko! No, no specific order. πŸ˜€ Oh gosh! I don’t really know, actually. I go in spurts with what I watch–it could be a lot of one thing for months on end. (Star Trek: Next Generation lasted for three months. xD) and that would mean my “all time favorite” screen charrie would be in that show, you know? Until I hop to the next show… hehe. XD But I do love Barney from Andy Griffith. He’s just so FUNNY. He gets worked up about the littlest things, and I go HAHAHAHAHA every time. XD What have you seen? πŸ˜€ Haha, why thank you for trusting me then. πŸ˜‰


      • kokodownunder June 8, 2015 / 9:04 am

        Okay, great! πŸ˜€ Yes, I completely understand what you’re saying! XD Are you watching anything at the moment (something like the Star Trek: Next Generation incident) that has a character you must squeak about in it? πŸ˜€ AHHH, HE SOUNDS HILARIOUS (he . . . sounds like me. XD HAHAHAHAHA. Jk, jk. But seriously. :O XD ).
        Well, I’ve seen . . . Frozen, VeggieTales, and Finding Nemo. XD But I have seen a couple of episodes of Gilligan’s Island and Dick Van Dyke, so. πŸ˜€ BUT. I. AM. WANTING. TO. WATCH. MURDER. SHE. WROTE. FOR. BAHHH. Ever since you first told me about it. πŸ˜€
        Thanks for the great post! πŸ˜€

        Oh, let’s see. Well, I LOVE Survivor, the TV Show where they dump 16 people on an island and say “Good luck!” and then do a bunch of challenges and eliminate people to see who the ultimate survivor is. I LOVE THAT SHOW. I’ve seen seasons 1, 2, and 7, and am currently watching Survivor All Stars. So it’s not fictional since it’s with real live people and a game show, but I do really like Colby and Rupert. Have you ever seen that before? Survivor is in its 30th season I think. O_O Anyways, for fiction-wise, I have been watching Happy Days again! I really like either Potsie or Fonzie. Potsie is silly and a dork sometimes (but in a good way!) and Fonzie is just cool. XD
        Thanks for the great comment!

    It won’t let me reply anymore, so I will write my reply in a new comment. πŸ˜€ I HAVE HEARD OF THAT SHOW! Tim Hawkins talks about it, as we have discussed (“Pick Steve, pick Steve, pick Steve – YES! Give him the coconut; he’s gone!” (rofl) ). Gosh, it really sounds like a show I would love. XD I love shows where there is elimination. (rofl) I will have to look into that one! πŸ˜€
    AND HAPPY DAYS! Are you going through all seasons and rewatching them all? :’) Argh, they are both such fun characters. (rofl) Well, at least, Potsie is! Fonzie is, like you said, just plain cool. πŸ˜› I don’t know who my favourite character would be . . . probably Fonzie. XD OR CHACHI. OR HOWEVER YOU PRONOUNCE HIS NAME. (rofl) He’s good too. XD Do you like the earlier seasons or the later? πŸ˜€ YES, I WILL MOST DEFINITELY LET YOU KNOW! :”D


    • Emma June 9, 2015 / 6:29 pm

      OH YES! CHURCH SURVIVOR. AHAHHA. That would be terrific. XD Yes, now I do remember when we talked about that!
      Well I only own 1-4, but I LOVE those episodes. When I would watch them on TV, I watched the later ones, 5-11. Chachi is right, I think? XD But anyways, I can’t really say which seasons I like best. Out of the first four, I like either two or three the best? Or four. I don’t know. One was pretty good, but I like it when Fonz wears his leather jacket, and not the other one. πŸ™‚

    Aaaahhhhh!!! I can’t believe I never saw this! Thank you for taking up the tag! ❀ Great answers! I love how you picked the simple people just for who they are. πŸ™‚



    • Emma October 23, 2015 / 6:05 pm

      Lol, it’s okay! I had a lot of fun with it; thank you!!


  4. Sunny February 7, 2016 / 7:19 pm

    Haha, Larry the Cucumber is sooo funny. I love the Cebu song where he’s just randomly showing pictures from his trip….LOL.
    Barney is really funny too! I haven’t seen very much of Andy Griffith before, but enough to know how hilarious he is. πŸ˜‰


    • Emma February 9, 2016 / 9:23 am

      LOL, “This is me and the bull. This is me fighting the bull. (Oooooh!) This is me and the bull and…I think that’s the bull’s cousin.” XD I haven’t seen the video of the Cebu song in forever, but II listen to a bunch of VT songs sometimes and that one is funny. XD ❀
      Argh, there are just too many good things in life. Larry the cucumber, Barney Fife…ha! thanks for commenting! ❀

        Hahaha! Yeah, exactly! LOL!
        I know, same here, but now I want to go look it up… πŸ˜‰ We had the “Josh and the Big Wall” movie when I was little and would watch it ALL. THE. TIME. So I know the song/video pretty well. XD


      • Emma February 13, 2016 / 6:19 pm

        I LOVE THAT ONE! “Boy, did I pick a lousy day to wear my contacts!” Haha!!! Goodness, VeggieTales is great! I just watched the Minnesota Cuke: Samson’s Hairbrush one. Have ya ever seen that one before? πŸ˜€

        I probably would… if i had seen enough movies! Too bad I’m not really into stories through films. 😦
        But if there’s any other subjects, i would surely LOVE to do tags!

        There’s more subjects for tags than just movies! I’ve done quite a few. If you check out the “Category” drop tab in the sidebar and click on the word “Tags” you can scroll through the ones that I’ve done. If any pique your interest, consider yourself nominated! πŸ˜€ There’s a Happiness Tag (list things that make you happy), a Versatile Blogger Award (list random facts about yourself) and a few others. πŸ˜€
