Kids TV: Characters Parents Love

Last month, I conducted two very unscientific Twitter polls about the children’s tv characters that parents dislike and like the most. I wrote about the hated characters on August 27th. This is the follow-up about the characters we like. Not surprisingly, there are some that appear on both lists, further proof that one person’s poison is another’s preference.

The top vote getters, with two each, were Wizards of Waverly Place, Phineas and Ferb and Spongebob. Everything else was mentioned once. Apparently, we often agree about the most annoying characters, but when it comes to what we like, our tastes are all over the place.

Here’s the list of single-votes:
Kipper
Little Bear
Curious George (with a shout out for the William H. Macy voice-over)
Ang (Avatar)
Dora
Handy Manny
Zack and Cody
Elmo
Sportacus (LazyTown)
Steve (Blues Clues)
Statler & Waldorf (Muppet Show)
The Count (Sesame Street)
Pepe le Pew and all the classic Warner Brothers cartoons
The Wiggles

I cast my votes for my favorites among the current crop my son watches — Wizards of Waverly Place and Phineas & Ferb — but looking at the list, I remember Kipper with great fondness. I also would give a thumbs up to the Avatar but my favorite character was the Uncle.

Here’s a clip from Wizards that amuses me nearly every time I watch it.
