Robin Hood, Robin Hood (1973)
Robin and Little John aren't just BFFs — Robin especially has got real political potential. He's the original man of the people — just the sort of affable socialist unafraid to take from the rich and give to the poor.
Dory, Finding Nemo (2001)
Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, doesn't have a very long memory — in fact, it's just a few seconds long. But Dory's upbeat attitude and adventurous spirit make her the perfect companion for Nemo's dad Marlin. Plus, she's great with whales. Get excited — Finding Dory comes out June 17!
Donkey, Shrek (2001)
Is Donkey Eddie Murphy's greatest role ever? It's a distinct possibility. Shrek's unlikely sidekick Donkey is non-judgmental of the ogre. He's hilariously un-self-aware. And, he makes you waffles in the morning.
Puss In Boots, Shrek 2 (2004), Shrek The Third (2007), Shrek Forever After (2010), Puss in Boots (2011)
Antonio Banderas lends his voice to the most stylish orange tabby in leather boots we've ever seen. A Zorro-type vigilante, Puss In Boots entertained audiences so much with his saucy attitude and fancy footwork that he spawned a whole feline franchise.
Babe, Babe (1995)
Mild-mannered misfit Babe couldn't be more endearing or vulnerable. Seriously, you might need to rethink the bacon, people. The pink little piggy has the herding talent of a well-bred Border Collie. He ends up bravely finding his inner voice to become an unlikely barn leader.
