We haven't had a Top 5 list in a while, so here we go. Please list your Top 5 Sitcom Characters.
1. Must be a sitcom character.
2. Characters from variety shows not allowed (for instance, SNL or The Carol Burnette Show).
That's it. Post your Top 5.
5. Norm Peterson (George Wendt, Cheers)- Not a huge roll, but always full of one-liners. Norm was great.
4. The Fonz (Henry Winkler, Happy Days) - He was just too cool. One of my favorites growing up.
3. George Costanza (Jason Alexander, Seinfeld) - My all time favorite sitcom. Full of great characters, none better than George, although Kramer and Elaine get honorable mentions.
2. Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor, All In The Family) - The ultimate bigot. Not that that's anything to be proud of, but he got away with it, over and over.
1. Barney Fife (Don Knotts, The Andy Griffith Show) - One of the all-time genius comedy actors. But he was never as funny in anything else (with the possible exception of The Apple Dumpling Gang). I'd love to know every part of that show that he wrote and/or ad-libbed.
5. Lowell "Wings" Thomas Hayden Church
4. Roy Biggins "Wings" David Schramm
3. Ed Chigliank "Northern Exposure" Darren E. Burrows
2. Maurice Minnified "Northern Exposure" Barry Corbin
