Viacom’s TV Land and Entertainment Weekly have published their “Top 100 Greatest TV Icons and Legends” list (Numbers 51-100 and Numbers 1-50 at TVLand.com, and the Entertainment Weekly article). Included on the list are South Park‘s Cartman at #84, Peanuts‘ Charlie Brown at #57, and The Simpsons‘ Homer Simpson at #9. Beyond the usual differences of opinion on whether someone should or should not have been on the list, the list is drawing criticism for seeming to be biased towards TV characters from the 1970’s and forward.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
