Re: Mmmm... Bailey

Okay, I've thought about it...

... and these are still preliminary and semi-arbitrary, and took longer than 15 minutes to dig up. So there.

Philip Halvorsen, The [Widget]. the [Wadget] and Boff
Elmer Elevator, My Father's Dragon. [Really, the cat.]
Element Lad
James Bond
Professor Julius Kelp, The Nutty Professor [original] [freunlaven]
Pinky, Duck Soup [ie, Harpo Marx. Groucho is brilliant, Harpo transcendent]
Tevye, A Fiddler On The Roof
Bilbo Baggins, LotR
Heather Campbell, The Andy Griffith Show. [I'm not entirely sure this was the young ingenue Opie fell in love with, but she was somewhere in the series and this is the only episode I could find with the right plot.]
Collectively, the young heroes of Andre Norton novels [if this is cheating, ignore the next one too]
Collectively, the young heroes of Robert Heinlein novels
Capt. Kirk [more than Spock, who might otherwise be on this list]
Jethro Bodine, The Beverly Hillbillies. [I wanted his opportunities, then would do things right]
Oliver Wendell Douglas, Green Acres. [While Hank Kimball was my favorite character, Oliver probably influenced me more, as he was the only sane one in an insane universe... which leads me to...]
Alice, Alice In Wonderland

Hey, that's 15. Somehow, the list seems sparse and incomplete. Oh well, that's how it goes.
