Whether they're talking or not talking, kind or malevolent, supernatural, alien, or just your above-average pet, some of the most beloved television characters of all time weren't human.
A non-human creature doesn't have to be a protagonist, like in “Animaniacs,” “Invader Zim,” or “Bojack Horseman,” to add a certain kind of charm to a TV show. Whether a sinister, otherworldly being like Bob in “Twin Peaks,” a beagle who pretends to be the Red Baron, a rabbit with a Brooklyn accent, or an infant version of Yoda, non-human characters have frequently become just as iconic as the shows that they’re from.
Stacker looked through the most popular TV shows and made a list of 25 memorable, non-human characters. They could be a silent pet, an anthropomorphic animal, an extra-terrestrial, a robot, an evil spirit, you name it. You might not be able to take all these guys home—and you probably wouldn’t want to—but they certainly left their mark in our world as much as in theirs.
