Ed McMahon has been named number one of the top 50 all-time sidekicks. I'm okay with that, but not so much with some of the rest of the list. Here are the top ten:
1. Ed McMahon (Tonight Show)
2. Robin (Batman)
3. George Costanza (Seinfeld)
4. Chewbacca (Star Wars)
5. Ethel Mertz (I Love Lucy)
6. Dr. Watson (Sherlock Holmes)
7. Samwise Gamgee (Lord of the Rings)
8. Ed Norton (Honeymooners)
9. Tattoo (Fantasy Island)
10. Dwight Schrute (The Office)
Come on now. Would you really rank Dwight higher than Barney Fife (no. 19) or Barney Rubble (no. 34)? No way. And Tonto, the Lone Ranger's faithful companion, isn't on the list at all. I don't know who comes up with this stuff, but they must have a screw loose. If you're gonna include the Donkey from Shrek (12) and Piglet (41), why not BooBoo? You never saw Yogi Bear without him. What do you think?
