Bert from Mary Poppins

Bert, who’s played by Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins, is a jack-of-all-trades. He’s a chimney sweep, a one-man band, and a screeve. Not only can he hold down multiple jobs but he can also dance with the best of them including penguins and fellow chimney sweepers on the rooftops of London.

Elphaba from Wicked

Wicked gives the backstory of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz. Born with green skin, she’s is neglected in favor of her beautiful sister Nessarose. When Elphaba starts college, she’s ignored in favor of her popular roommate Galinda. When they’re ready to fly, Galinda gets a bubble while Elphaba gets a dirty broomstick. How’s that fair?

Dr. Horrible

Dr. Horrible is an aspiring supervillain who ends each day by reflecting on his personal blog while cheesy synth music plays overhead. Remember to address him properly, because he “didn’t spend 6 years getting a PhD in Horribleness to be called mister.”
