Fave Five Sidekicks

1. Robin (aka Dick Grayson), sidekick to Batman

2. Barney Rubble, sidekick to Fred Flintstone

3. Spock, sidekick to Captain Kirk                         

4. Linus, sidekick to Charlie Brown                        

5. Garth, sidekick to Wayne

1. Chewbacca, sidekick to Han Solo

2. George Coztanza, sidekick to Jerry Seinfeld               

3. Jelly, sidekick to Peanut Butter                        

4. Eric Murphy, sidekick to Vince in Entourage             

5. Siano and Schwartz, sidekicks to Me

1. Kyle Gass from Tenacious D, sidekick to Jack Black

2. Alfred, sidekick to Batman                              

3. Willow Rosenberg, sidekick to Buffy the Vampire Slayer  

4. Millhouse, sidekick to Bart Simpson                     

5. Muttley, sidekick to Dick Dastardly


Um, Siano… Batman’s sidekick was ROBIN. Alfred was his butler. Tho I do dig Alfred and wish I had one. But Alfred only rarely accompanied Batman on capers (tho he has been known to masquerade as Batman, even tho you could still see his ‘stache. Didn’t anyone notice that?). If anything, Alfred was BRUCE WAYNE’s sidekick… but even then I would argue for Dick Grayson.

Great lists! Kato from Green Hornet just missed my list… I’m a big Bruce Lee fan but that’s just a little before my time. Some other great sidekicks:

Baseball — Whitey Ford, sidekick to Mickey Mantle;
Basketball — Scottie Pippen, sidekick to Michael Jordan;
Music — Joe Perry, sidekick to Steven Tyler (Richards/Jagger and McCartney/Lennon were too much of equals to consider either a sidekick);
Food — Barbeque sauce, sidekick to anything;
Celebrity — Paris Hilton’s Sidekick, which apparently was like a rolodex of A-listers and home-made porn videographers.


BTW, I’m sure Sterno won’t mind me telling you that at some point in the debate over five five sidekicks, I said to him “your ego is the sidekick to your arrogance.”

Not sure that makes a ton of sense but I thought it was funny.🙂


Great lists guys, but I love the Jobu to Serano. Brilliant.
