Me? I gotta go with Barney Fife.

I gotta go with Barney Fife.

And if anyone argues, I just have one thing to say, "Nip it."

Does Sgt. Schultz count as a German sidekick, an allied sidekick, or both?

Sysiphus26 Jun 2012 8:00 p.m. PST

He didn't say much, and got the job done.

I just remembered that Xena had a sidekick.
I forget her name, but she was a cutie.
So add her to the list too.
Whoever she was.

religon27 Jun 2012 7:43 a.m. PST

Xena's sidekick was Gabrielle, the Battling Bard of Potidaea.

Captain Huggy Face is also pretty good. He doesn't talk, dances, pilots a spaceship, knows kung fu and rarely gets into pickles requiring WordGirl to save him.
