Telly Talkers are on a mission!

Telly Talk's Top.png

Top Characters.png


That mission is to discover Telly Talk’s favourite fictional TV character of all time. To find out who that will be, we will go through a series of events. Each event will concentrate on one decade, apart from the first decade (the 50s) which will include any character created in that decade and before.

Each mission will last two weeks.

Once all missions have concluded, we will vote on the best characters of the 20th century and the best characters of the 21st century.

Our final mission will be the throw both centuries together and vote for the ultimate character.

If you wish to join this mission.

  • Vote by listing your top 20 characters for that decade.
  • Maximum of one character per show.
  • 20 characters are the max, but any less than 20 is perfectly fine.
  • The minimum requirement is to list your character and the TV programme they are from.
  • You can include your reasons for each character, but it is not compulsory.
  • The character must be introduced on or after the 1st of January at the beginning of each decade.
  • All characters are included, whether they are animated, computer-generated, alien, muppet, puppet, or animal.
  • Any show, any genre, any country.
  • Fictional characters only.






Mission Two

60s.png


Please vote for your favourite TV characters from the 60s by listing up to 20 characters by name and the TV programme they are from. If you wish to include your reasons, feel free to do so.

Last day for voting
Saturday
10th April


EXTRA NOTE:
Please start with the character's name followed by the show they come from. I had a few hiccups with the first round because actors names were mentioned and some shows were not included. Thanks and let's get it on.

If I've named a character for one decade, and that character is on a show that goes into the next, may I say the same one that I said for the first poll in this one?

What I mean by that is, for instance, that Richard Boone played Paladin on Have Gun Will Travel from 1957-63 on CBS, so he was on in the 50s and in the 60s; may I put him as one of my 60s favorites too?

No, characters need to have first appeared in the decade being considered. According the first post...

The character must be introduced on or after the 1st of January at the beginning of each decade.

--George Jetson, The Jetsons (George O'Hanlon, voice)
--
Steve McGarrett, Hawaii Five-O (Jack Lord)
--Dr. Marcus Welby, Marcus Welby, M.D. (Robert Young)

Here is an opening from Marcus Welby, M.D. that, I trust, will show why I named him as one of my favorites of the 60s (because that title character of that ABC medical series [as played by the late Robert Young] was from a time when doctors still made house calls regularly; granted, this is the second-season opening [1970-71], but still, you'll see why he was one of television's most celebrated medical characters, and characters overall):


And here are some novelizations of that ABC medical series that were published by Ace Books in 1970 and '71 (if they're still available secondhand, I think you might like to read them); fronts and backs are shown here...
