15. Al Borland - "Home Improvement"

Tim Taylor's right hand man (left hand if the right one is injured), Al Borland is the bearded, flannel-wearing voice of reason that holds "Tool Time" and, more often than not, the Simian grunting "Tool Man" together. He may not be host of the home improvement show-within-a-show, but that doesn't mean he isn't knowledgeable enough to fulfill those duties. You could even make an argument that he should be the host, and most people do.

14. Jazzy Jeff - "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

If a baron's spouse is a baroness and a count's spouse is a countess, what does that make the best friend of a fresh prince? According to the Bel-Air hierarchy, a freeloading disc jockey. Although it often meant getting into trouble, "Jazz" was there for Will through thick, thin, and door (courtesy of Uncle Phil).

13. Barney Rubble - "The Flintstones"

What this yellow-haired caveman lacks in the neck department, he more than makes up for when it comes to having a goofy laugh and "baber-toothed cat" of a wife. A distinguished member of the Loyal Order of the Water Buffalos and proud owner of a pet hopparoo, it's hard to imagine him having to play second fiddle to the unrefined loudmouth, Fred Flinstone--but only because those didn't exist back then.

12. Charlie Kelly - "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"

A master exterminator, talented playwright, and practitioner of Bird Law, Charlie lives in glue-sniffing squalor with his main man, Frank. "The Day Man's" shenanigans don't just revolve around his pullout sofa-mate though, he also spends plenty of time doing the dirty work and providing somewhat of a moral compass for the other members of The Gang. When he isn't too busy charming The Waitress and not knowing how to read, that is.

11. Patrick Star - "SpongeBob SquarePants"

He lives near a pineapple under the sea. Dim-witted, quite chubby, and jolly is he. If nautical nonsense be something you wish, this starfish and his sea sponge pal are your favorite ocean dwellers. Jobless, shirtless, and seemingly mindless, Patrick isn't just dumb as a rock, he lives under one.
