Who do you guys think is the most popular televison character of all time.

I know this is hard to judge, but I think I have to give it to The Fonz, wherever he went people stopped him, he had so many fans, I know that you can the same thing about a lot of television characters, but you should see the crowd that followed Henry Winkler, it was unbelievable.

I watched a Happy Days special once, and they were talking about The Fonz, and they showed how many fans were after him during the series. It's more then anyone else I've seen. Maybe the older members can back me up on this one.

So what do you guys think?

Please give an explanation.

I'm going to go with Gilligan from Gilligan's Island. Everywhere he goes, someone slaps him with a hat and calls him "little buddy." Maybe not as big a fan base as Fonzie but he's definitely as iconic if not more.
