If you had to pick a single favorite character from some of the shows you've liked, who would they be?

We started discussing this last night over MLB playoffs and brewskis...I thought it might be fun here too.
Even if they weren't considered a "main" character or a cast regular, who are/were some of your favorites?

"Coach" from Cheers.
Lt. Castillo/Edward James Olmos on Miami Vice.
Cosmo Kramer.
Leroy Jethro Gibbs
Red Foreman from That 70s Show.
Al Bundy
 
A bunch come to mind; but probably my #1 is Jim Rockford from the Rockford Files played by James Garner. Regular guy, making mistakes like people do in real life, nothing fancy or lofty, unforced humor. Some other likable characters on the show including his dad played by Noah Beery Jr., having some resemblance to Garner. While I remember watching it when it was new, had the chance to watch the entire series when I was laid up after surgery last winter. It was sad when I watched the last episode wanting more and knowing all are gone now.
 
The way I think about this, I think of the characters that I’d want to know and spend time with.
I can’t narrow this down to one. I’ve had lots of favorite shows over the years.
In a zombie environment, I’d want to be friends with Rick Grimes. He and I would get along.
Kramer from Seinfeld would be funny to hang out with.
In the Fast and Furious movies, I wouldn’t pick any of those idiots. Their car talk is full of bullshit jargon that nobody uses.
I’d gladly be friends with Cooter and Bo Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard.
I’d love to be an assistant to Colt Seavers on The Fall Guy.
Yellowstone would be interesting but Rip and John are too damn serious and wouldn’t appreciate my brand of smart *** humor.

Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street.......nobody except that stoopid big yellow bird has ever seen him, and he always disappears before the work needs doing.

Maybe he's a Union guy? :rolleyes:
 
Are you from Colorado too?
Why, did I already post 10 threads like this today:D

You get points just for spelling Snuffleuppawhatever correctly... Or at least attempting to!

Fred Sanford. My favorite Tv character, nobody could have played that better the Red Foxx
 
Tony Soprano
Jim Rockford
Kowalski
I used to like the Sopranos but a few years after the show ended, it was apparent what a narcissistic asshole that Tony was.
I don't think you're like him, are you?
