Greatest Ever Sidekicks

CRIKEY CHIEF! PENFOLD’S THE WORLD’S 12TH GREATEST SIDEKICK!

This September saw the much anticipated return of the world’s greatest secret agent, Danger Mouse, his mission: to protect the world, the universe and Willesden Green from a host of nefarious villains including the evil Baron Greenback.  Of course, every hero needs a right hand man (or hamster) and where would DM be without Penfold, proud holder of the title ‘World’s 12th Greatest Sidekick’!

With Danger Mouse: Mission Improbable out on DVD on 2nd November, featuring six of DM’s brand new adventures not to mention the double-length launch episode, it seems like the perfect time to take a look at eleven sidekicks that may have pipped Penfold in the Greatest Sidekick rankings.

11. Dr Evil & Mini Me 


It’s not difficult to draw parallels between Austin Powers’ nemesis Dr Evil and Baron Greenback.  They both crave world domination, they both have a maniacal laugh, but one thing the Baron lacks is a miniature incarnation of himself.

10. Bill & Ben


While Bill and Ben may not be each other’s sidekicks exactly, The Flower Pot Men are certainly one of the first double acts to appear children’s TV, making their screen debut in 1952.  Did you know that Peter Hawkins who voiced Bill & Ben was also the voice of the Daleks?

9.  Wallace & Gromit


One of the attributes of a great sidekick is their ability to get their unwitting partner out of a scrape and very few do that better than Wallace’s canine companion.

8.  Dennis & Gnasher


Feared by teachers, softies and most adults, Dennis the Menace loves nothing better than making mischief, aided and abetted by the toughest toothed dog in Beanotown, Gnasher

7.  Ron & Hermione 


When it comes to defeating a wizard as evil as Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter needed some firm friends by his side and with him throughout Hogwarts and beyond were Ron and Hermione.

6.  Sooty & Sweep


We’re not sure they ever understood a word each other said, but Sooty and Sweep have been inseparable for over half a century!

5.  Frodo & Samwise Gamgee 


Sam proved himself to be Frodo Baggins’ closest and most dependable companion, remaining by his side on their epic journey from the Shire to the foreboding realm of Mordor.

4.  Doctor Who and his assistants


Throughout his many regenerations, Doctor Who has always shared his adventures with an array of different companions.

3.  Batman & Robin 


Of one of the world’s most famous crime-fighting partnerships, Batman co-creator Bill Finger allegedly stated that he introduced Robin because “Batman didn’t have anyone to talk to.”

2.  Blackadder & Baldrick


Regardless of the historical period they found themselves in, Edmund Blackadder could always count on dim-witted dogsbody Baldrick for a ‘cunning plan’

1.  Sherlock Holmes & Dr Watson


Although most heroes would be hard-pressed to admit it, they really need their sidekicks. This is certainly the case when it comes to Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion, Dr John Watson.

To celebrate the release of Mad Men - Complete Season 1-7 out on November 2nd on DVD & Blu-ray, we have a great competition for you and 1 copy to give away on Bluray.

Synopsis:
The concluding part of Mad Men’s seventh season sees Don Draper (Jon Hamm – Bridesmaids, TV’s Black Mirror) resuming his womanising ways as a bachelor and encountering a waitress named Diana at a diner, convinced they have met before, even though she insists otherwise. Ken Cosgrove (Aaron Staton – Ray Donovan, August Rush) has taken over his father-in-law's position at Dow Chemical, subsequently turning the tables on Roger (John Slattery – Ant-Man, The Adjustment Bureau) and Pete (Vincent Kartheiser – In Time, Alpha Dog), much to their surprise. Sally (Kiernan Shipka – The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is at college and slowly becoming disillusioned with her parents, but after receiving distressing news from two people very close to her, she decides to follow another path...
