The Weasels (Who Framed Roger Rabbit – Rich’s Pick)
The Weasels are Dr. Brown, aka Judge Doom’s Henchmen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. They were a band of gangster style Weasels with a full cast of characters, I mean you had (in order left to right) the dumb one, the higher level one, The Boss, the crazy one, and the low level one.
These guys all tried really hard but at the end of the day they could not keep their shit together and came apart at the seems as Valiant made them laugh themselves to death.
Though the cast of weasels overall was unsuccessful they were fun to watch as a kid. I remember I loved them at times more than I did Roger. Roger was great and all but the weasels were stupid and fun. The one thing they were pro’s at though was pissing Judge Doom off.
Bebop and Rocksteady (TMNT – Everyone’s Pick)
When various media is heavily influenced by sales of its toy-line it can be a double edged sword. On one side you can have a cartoon like transformers and on the other a movie like Batman and Robin; both completely driven by toys creatively. When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles became an animated series in the 80’s, Playmates toys was looking for mutants to release as toys. The resulting creations proved to be two of the most iconic and bumbling henchmen of all time. Bebop and Rocksteady volunteered to be transformed by the Shredder in effort to exact revenge on the Turtles. The result was a mutant warthog and rhino respectively. Mutation didn’t exactly enhance the brains of these former gang bangers as they are widely regarded as the Tweedledee and Tweedledum as the TMNT universe. They have both found ways to foul up even the Shredder’s best laid plans.
Don’t be so mad Shredder after all as dumb as they were, they are as universally loved by the TMNT fans. With each incarnation of the heroes in a half shell, we can’t help but wonder if these famous henchmen to the Shredder will be included in some way.
Starscream (Transformers – Dom’s Pick)
Starscream is one of the most beloved characters in the Transformers and has appeared in almost every incarnation. Starscream is high-ranking Decepticon who constantly lets everyone known that he one day will replace Megatron. Luckly for Megatron, he tends to run away when shit really starts to hit the fan and tends to never finish when it comes to taking power.
No don’t cry Starscream here have a poptart!
There you go much better! Plus don’t sweat it you are still a fan favorite! Just don’t let Megatron bully you too much!
Ummm yea maybe work on that?
