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. 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. 😉 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 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!
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.
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.
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. He’s known for losing his hairbrush and, in case you were wondering, he’s a cucumber, not a pickle.
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.
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.)
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, 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!
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. 😀 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!
