    1. Homer Simpson-He is one of the most recognizable characters of all time. He has lot of catch phrase Even one as made the dictionary. D’oh

    2. Al Bundy-He is not your typical dad because he does not know best. This character broke many taboo rules in tv good or bad.

    3. Norm-He is one of the main reasons that I really like Cheers. He is one of the funniest TV characters of all time.

    4. Archie Bunker-One of the most influence TV characters. If not for the success of Archie Bunker breaking tv rules will not have Al Bundy, Homer Simpson, and Peter Griffin.

    5. Bart and Lisa Simpson-In the early years of the Simpsons. Bart was the main character with Homer on the side. Lisa is a perfect foil to Bart. She is complete opposite of Bart
    and it works.

    6. Eric Cartman-He is probably one of the most selfish characters of all time. We love him for it. If he was real half the things that he says would probably would lead into asskicking.

    7. Frasier-He is a rarity in TV history. He was involved with two long running tv sitcoms. How many TV characters can say that?

    8. Beavis and Butt-Head-One of the main reasons that tv animation got going in the 90’s. These were also very controversial because parents cried wolf when some kid sets fire
    because Beavis says fire.

    9. Joey-He is my fav Character on Friends. I think he is one of the reasons that Friends was so popular

    10. Chandler-My second fav character on Friends. He is one of the most sarcastic
    characters of all time. If not for Chandler there will be no Joey. I think that is main problem with the tv show Joey. Joey as no foil to play off on.

    11. Cliff-He is the sidekick for Norm. He is great foil to Norm and Carla.

    12. Peg Bundy-Al Bundy will not be Al Bundy without Peg.

    13. Niles-He and Frasier make a great comedy team.

    14. Carla-She is one of the most sarcastic characters of all time. She is really harsh towards Cliff and my least fav on Cheers which is Diane

    15. Master Shake-More then Cartman He is the most selfish character of all time. One of the greatest pick on people characters. I love it when he picks on Meatwad.
    16.Tim Tyler-One of the funniest at getting hurt. Great physical comedy.

    17.Barney Five-Can’t have fav tv characters list without Barney.

    18.Ren & Stimpy-The first rude animation tv characters in the history of tv. These cats led to Beavis and Butt-Head and South Park

    19.Carl-He,Al Bundy and Tim are the best at getting hurt. I think that Carl is better because he is a cartoon which means he can hurt more often and worse

    20.Bender-Great voice work for this character. He is my fav character on Futurma

    21.Stewie-One of the few baby characters I like. Other then Maggie and Pebbles, He is probably the most famous baby cartoon tv character of all time.

    22.Fred and Barney-The first tv animation character that broke through.

    23.Scooby and Shaggy-Probably the greatest dog tv character of all time and human cartoon character of all time

    24. Frank and Marie Barone-My fav characters on everybody loves Raymond. There great foils for each other and the rest of the cast. Strong enough characters to have their own show.

    25.Meatwad and Frylock-Great foil to Master Shake. If not for these characters I don’t think that Master Shake would be as cool.

    Good thread idea.

    1. Clark Kent (Smallville) Tom Welling is excellent as the future man of steel.

    2. Hank Hill (King of the Hill) An old fashioned kind of guy, a good father and one hell of a propane salesman.

    3. Boomhauer (King of the Hill) Dang o' man, I tell you what, tha ding ol' talkin all crazy, can't understand that' need ol' dictionary man.

    4. Lex Luthor (Smallville) Micheal Rosenbaum nails that charactor, even more so than Gene Hackman IMO.

    5. Gabrielle Solis (Desperate Houswives) Just for Eva Longoria's hotness! She's by far the finest woman in prime time, I can't take my eye's off her when she's on-screen!

    6. Alan Shore (Boston Legal/The Practice) As played by James Spader, he's so damn smug, but he's also very smooth and cool with a very unique, and funny, frequent use of the english vocabulary.

    7. Adrian Monk (Monk) The funniest, and most warm hearted, detective in recent memory, he almost makes being a nervous-nelly seem not so bad.

    8. Sherona Flemming (Monk) For her weekly cleavage! [​IMG] Also, because she care's for Monk. It's going to really suck when she leaves the show. [​IMG]

    9. Joe Rogan (Fear Factor) Because of his no quit spirit and go get em attitude, he's the reason half of the contestant's don't just throw in the towel when the stunt is introduced. It's fun watching him get pissed when someone quits over something stupid.

    10. Jonathan Kent (Smallville) As played by John Shnieder, he is the quintessential father figure, kind but stern, stubborn but loving and willing to risk his own life for his family.

    11. Inspector Sledge Hammer (Sledge Hammer!) Lasting only two hilarious seasons, this is the crazy trigger happy lawman who's hatred of criminal scum and yogurt eatin' creeps is matched only by his love of violence, excessive force and a certain 44 Magnum. Trust him, he know's what he's doing. [​IMG]

    12. Buffy Summers (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Anyone who says that Sarah Michelle Gellar has little acting range, has obviously never watched this show.

    I could be here all night listing all of them from my entire tv watching life, so i'll stop right here. I'll come back in and make additions when my patience returns. [​IMG]

    I once heard that the character of Frasier is the longest running character ever.

    1984 - 2004 = 20 years
    1984 - 1993 (Cheers)
    1993 - 2004 (Frasier)

    The only one who could ever come close, would be "Joey" (i.e. Matt LeBlanc), but his new show would have to be on the air until 2014. [​IMG]

    Lex Luther ~ He is by far my favorite character in any show. M. Roesenbaum IS Lex Luther.

    Bill Haverchuck ~ I am such a sucker for nerdy guys. He is my favorite character on Freaks and Geeks. I will watch episodes and rewind his scenes over and over.

    Marshall ~ When I first started watching Alias I was like, " Hey that is the tourist guy from Roswell". I love him. He is yet another nerdy guy I am inlove with. He brings alot of much needed comic relief to the show and the show really wouldn't be the same without him.

    The entire Seinfeld cast ~ It's my favorite show ever!

    Max Evans ~ He made the show. He is just one of those guys you would love to know. Mysterious but sort of scary at the same time.

    Sydney Bristow ~ She kicks so much ass and is beyond hot.

    Here's my list, in no particular order... well, I guess I'll group them by show, if there's more than one:

    Lorelai Gilmore..... (Gilmore Girls)
    Emily Gilmore..... (Gilmore Girls)
    Luke Danes..... (Gilmore Girls)
    Jack O'Neill..... (Stargate SG-1)
    Samantha Carter..... (Stargate SG-1)
    John Doe..... (Uh, from "John Doe" LOL)
    Niles Crane..... (Frasier)
    Joan Gerardi..... (Joan of Arcadia)
    Thomas Magnum..... (Magnum, P.I.)

    Hmmmmmm... this is quite a bit harder than I thought it would be. It's hard, thinking about shows that I haven't seen in years, and trying to judge them by what I can remember. That's why my list is short, and mostly from newer shows.
    I'll come back through out the day and update the list as I come up with more for it.
