Favorite Character Rankings

Post by A Lotta Moms on Thu May 08, 2014 8:50 pm

We all love talking about our favorite Arthur characters.  Like a lot of folks, I have a hard time choosing exactly who my favorite is sometimes.  Since we've probably all seen the "Favorite Arthur Character" poll a dozen times by now (and I take partial responsibility for wearing it out since I posted it at the Old ECC), here's an interesting twist on the idea.  Instead of being restricted to picking just one favorite character at the expense of all the others, let's create tiers and rank our favorite characters that way. 

Without further delay, here are my personal rankings.  I didn't include one-hit wonders or background characters, but by all means, feel free to include them if you like.

Tier 1: Francine
Tier 2: Muffy, Molly, D.W. (earlier episodes only)
Tier 3: Buster, Fern, Ladonna (she'd probably be Tier 1 or 2 if she had as much experience as the rest of the crew)
Tier 4: George, Maria, Jenna
Tier 5: Binky, Rattles, Slink, Sue Ellen
Tier 6: Arthur, Brain, James
Tier 7: The Tibbles, Bud, Prunella, D.W. (later episodes)
Tier 8: Kate, Pal, Emily, Alex

You pretty much said my list
Aside from the fact

I would have

  • Francine Smile
  • Molly/George
  • Arthur and Buster
  • Early season DW and Sue Ellen
  • Muffy/Fern
    Then the rest as listed by alottamoms.
    Although I DO like Kate. She would be Tier three probably if George and Arthur were not there.

Not enough Francine love!!!
LOL
Carl was only in one episode as a main character and five episodes hovering around, well he made a cameo as though he were famous? lolz in ladonnas episode "Party Animal"Again, i prefer Ladonna over him.
hes heavily popular for a random out of nowhere kid who is suddenly "Georges freind", Yet ladonna comes in and all hell breaks loose. The mob comes out at night with their torches alight, screaming "burn the hare, burn the hare"

Hes K3RRYS fave!!! LOL Jokes

Hey, it's a similar story with r33na even: she's quite popular despite being a minor character who came out of nowhere and was suddenly Prunella's best friend.

Well, I know she had a proper introduction, but as I said, my PBS used to skip the whole season entirely, so whenever I'd see "Prunella Sees the Light" in the rotation, I had no idea who she was, where she came from, or why the show even needed her.

Same with the Molinas: again, not seeing their introductory episode, I had no idea who this Alberto kid was who had issues with Tommy and Timmy breaking his Bionic Bunny action figure, or who this Vecita girl was whom D.W. told her first experience in a big girl bed to or ended up buying Stanley.

But again, I think the problem people have with Ladonna is unlike Carl, Marina, or the Molinas, she wasn't just another minor character brought in from time to time, she was added to the roster as a main character, and so late into the show's run that I'm sure people were probably thinking, "Oh, great, another new character, as if we haven't had enough already." Also to be introduced during the controversial switch to Flash didn't help either.

I don't even know . . . but I like how they thought they could repay him by giving him a plastic cow that moos when you squeeze it.

"I'm thirteen, you really think I want to play with a cow?"

I like their little Imagine Spot of their grandma bringing them cherry pie, but deciding she can't believe them because they might be lying, then gives the guard the pie instead.

Well yes I guess but the thing is, Marina was always a student at Lakewood.
Yes the Molinas were pretty random, I mean one minute there are no neighbors then bam!!! Alberto is there.

Popcult, I do not think Alberto would be too fussed if two four yr old brats did not pay him back. He was okay when Francine accidentally lost his ball, I mean he got it back after it traveled the world right?

i have a fic that has a little chapter with Fran X Alberto when Francine is fourteen since they share their love of sports. I do not mind it actually XDXD

Fern receives alot of love Full stop.
She must be the most popular character in the Arthur fandom worldwide, well Buster is the number one, i do believe? correct me if I am wrong.
Its just after that Draw episode and her little pranks she has pulled, its hard to see why she is so popular. Then again she is easy to relate to sometimes and I do like writing from her point of view.....still.....

Maybe Fern is mega popular because she does do under handed cruel things, when she feels she has to? *shrug* she is a nut bar which is likable Very Happy but I do not like her attitude toward Francine

Actually, Marina goes to Mighty Mountain. And it honestly makes me wonder too, because Mighty Mountain is always perceived (at least through the Lakewood students' frame of mind) as a really tough school full of big bullies how someone like her manages to survive over there without being victimized day in and day out, unless they've put her in a separate classroom that can accommodate her disability isolating her from most of the other students.

There used to be another neighbor next door, Mr. Sipple, who was a great example of just how random yet hilarious Crazy Joe's sense of humor could be, such as the time D.W. made a face at Arthur, then he comes running over to them (having been in the shower) to give them a cabbage on the grounds that where he's from the face D.W. made is the sign for bring me a cabbage.


ArthurFrancineFan wrote:Maybe Fern is mega popular because she does do under handed cruel things, when she feels she has to? *shrug* she is a nut bar which is likable Very Happy but I do not like her attitude toward Francine
I actually have a new theory on why Fern might be so popular as a character: I think she, in a way, kind of speaks to the large emo subculture of the world. Fern isn't exactly an emo character, but she does seem to exhibit some mild emo tendancies: she likes to keep to herself and pursue quiet interests (reading, writing, etc.), her mindset tends to be a tad morbid and macabre, she's shown to be capable of possessing dark and sinister thoughts, and can become quite passive aggressive when pushed to far. That kind of makes her stand out amongst the other characters who are mostly embodiedments of typical everyday kids. It's like of like HORTON HEARS A WHO! I swear the main reason that movie became such a smash hit was all because of JoJo, who clearly did represent an emo teen. It's amazing how so many kiddy franchises can garner emo fans.
