Ah.  The annoying sidekick.  Sometimes you love them, and sometimes you hate them.  It is kind of like the villain thing, in that it can make or break a show.

I like a couple of the sidekicks featured above, and I want to stab the rest (PARTICULARLY THAT FUCKTARD JONATHAN CHEBAN).

Truth be told, every now and again I feel like I play the role of the annoying sidekick -- the  screeching monkey that performs for others.  Humph.  Whatever.  Maybe I am flattering myself.  Or maybe we all feel that way from time to time.

You? Sidekick? Never. You're your own she-bang!

Much Love,
Trissta

I always laugh at that word: fucktard.
It's short for fucking retarded right ?

Cheryl Ann said...

I fricking love Rerun and I always will. That is all.

Danielle Todd said...

Most of those sidekicks are really annoying. I have to admit, I had a bit of a childhood crush on Potsie though.

i LOVE masuka and runkle!

Shelley said...

The most useless movie sidekick is in Gone in 60 Seconds. I HATE HIM.

Stoic Tia said...

God I hated Andrea. She really made me want to punch her in the face. My least favorite 90210 characters, in order of annoyance: Andrea. Steve (gross) Donna. Valerie. Nat. And David. But I forgave him because I was crushing on his white boy rapping hardcore.

Caroline said...

I could not see you as annoying! Who is that first guy...with the uneven eyes? NOW...he annoys the crap out of me!

Claire Kiefer said...

I love how comprehensive you are with these blog posts--so many pictures of so many hilarious sidekicks! A special LOL to Chucky the Masturbating Man.

The Savage said...

I don't know who the top guy is but I'd gladly punch him. He has such a punchable presence.

SKIPPY! Dying. This totally made my morning. Jonathan Cheban is awful. Do you recall he had his own reality show for a bit on E! and there was an episode about whether he was gay or straight and he was very upset everyone thought he was gay. Apparently, HE ISN'T or hasn't come out yet. He totally dresses up in Kim K's clothes when she isnt around. Way too much info! sorry... ha!

Barney Rubble. What a pain.

Kathryn said...

Many an actor has built their career, and sometimes fortune, on being the annoying sidekick, but probably the same is true in real life also.

While the "pretty popular" person may receive all the attention at the time,in the long run they are forgettable; who do you remember years after...the annoying sidekick!

Kitty Stampede said...

baahahaha...some of these were hilarious. and haven't thought about them for years.

I have felt that way a lot of my life, to be honest. When I have been best friends with someone, it is usually someone more of a leader and chatty than I am, so I have felt like the side-kick. Now I am more independent and don't really hang out with many friends (womp, womp) so I don't really feel like that anymore (woot woot).

I think everyone plays both roles. And that's as it should be.

Oliver, ha ha ha. My sister and I never liked him. The Brady Bunch ended for us when Oliver joined.

Love Woody Boyd!

Megan said...

Everytime I see Jonathan Cheban and Kim eating in a restaurant on that Kartrashian show, I always think she pays for his meal.

Oliver ruined the Brady Bunch for me. Annoying little shit.

And Ethel? ETHEL forever. She got PAID to be the fat friend on I Love Lucy. I can imagine the show without Ricky, but never Ethel.
