In keeping with the topic yesterday of characters like MacGyver who live on in our memories, I was trying to come up with a list that stands out for me. Some characters that are so well known they are almost a stereotype.
1. Ebenezer Scrooge - everybody has an idea of what he was like, and we know what someone means when they say "He's such a Scrooge."
2. Indiana Jones - now there's a character people remember!
3. Little Orphan Annie - Comic strip, books, broadway musical, Movie.
4. Rooster Cogburn - in our house of John Wayne fans, this one lives on.
5. Darth Vader - The ultimate bad guy.
6. Shrek - he's complicated...he has layers...like an onion... :)
7. Kermit the Frog - a great character.
How about you? What names come to mind when you think of iconic characters?
