Amy Pond

After first meeting the Doctor when she was seven, Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) thought for years he was an imaginary friend. Until he showed up again the day before her wedding and it turned out her Raggedy Doctor was really an alien Time Lord (tangentially, what is up with the Doctor and redheads’ weddings?).

Rory Williams

Amy Pond’s beau and eventual husband, Rory Williams wasn’t initially invited to hopscotch around the universe with the Doctor. But once he got a taste of it, nothing could stop him from joining Amy: not a wedding, not death and not an unfortunate two-thousand-year stint as a Roman centurion.

Dale Gribble

In King of the Hill, Dale Gribble is Hank Hill’s friend and neighbor. Dale enjoys driving around in the Bug-e-bago and spraying things with toxic chemicals, an exterminator by trade. At least that’s what they’d like to you believe…

Ned Flanders

Nedward “Ned” Flanders Jr. is next-diddly-door neighbors with the Simpsons. He’s a highly devout Christian who annoys Homer with his perfect family, his goody two-shoes kindness, and his stupid sexy body.

The Blues Brothers

Ex-con Jake “Joliet” Blues (John Belushi) and his brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) are the Blues Brothers, a band on a mission from God to save a Catholic orphanage. In their quest, they must face the police, neo-Nazis, and worst of all, a country and western band.

Duke Silver

Duke Silver is Ron Swanson’s smooth-talking alter ego on Parks & Recreation. He spends his evenings in Eagleton’s hottest bar playing jazz sax to the delight of elderly women. He likes to keep his act on the down low, so if you catch him at Cozy’s in his signature fedora, don’t call him “Mr. Swanson.”

Deb

In a cast of awkward characters, Deb takes the cake. Dressed most often in pastel, this monotone sweetheart’s fashion sense is stuck in the ’80s with sideways ponytails and bangle bracelets. Perhaps after college she’ll earn a career that’s not selling handicrafts door-to-door, and update her wardrobe.

Uncle Rico

Former athlete Uncle Rico didn’t reach his goal of becoming an NFL superstar, but that doesn’t mean he has to stop throwing footballs, especially if it’s at his nephew Napoleon Dynamite. Though he’s moved on to a variety of get-rich-quick schemes, his tight bell bottoms and class ring suggest he’s still holding on to some aspect of his younger years.

Pedro Sanchez

After Pedro’s sweet mustache and bike impress Napoleon Dynamite, they become best of friends. Although Pedro is the quiet type, he boldly bakes a cake for the popular girl and runs for class president.

The Governor

In The Walking Dead, the Governor offers survivors refuge from zombies in his idyllic town of Woodbury. But things are not all as they seem. Especially in the aquarium room.
