Poll: Which sitcom character would you invite over for holiday dinner?

It's holiday season. Who would you invite over for dinner?

 

During the earlier decades, family dinners were mandatory and essential to staying in touch with relatives. Many people choose Sundays as the perfect opportunity to cook a huge dinner and chat with family.

With the rise of technology and social media, families only gather during the holidays, primarily Thanksgiving and Christmas. What if you could choose a sitcom character to invite over for dinner?

Out of the many options, we narrowed it down to ten characters from some of the top classic television shows.

I went with Bill Gillespie - he reminds me of Archie Bunker with a southern accent.

20% I had a hard time making up my mind on this one. Ended up with Elly May, I could have easily gone with Laura Petrie as well. For that matter, any of them would have been nice to have over.

Picked Alice, got 0% similar(!). Why are Hoss, Perry Mason, and Chief Gillespie on the list? They’re not sitcom characters.

What guy would not invite the gorgeous and funny Laura Petrie? I don't understand why she didn't run away with the vote? Lucy, 2nd place, and she won 2nd with 16%. Barney is just too weird and flaky, although he "won" the vote with 23%.

I would pick Jack Benny since I am a big fan. I wish MeTV would show the Burns and Allen Show.
Decades shows both old shows, very early in a morning hour, back-to-back!

I picked Lucy. I think Elly and Jed would have too weird food.
Not mentioned-I'd like to have Goober over any day.
And yes, I'd help Alice do the cooking.

I would invite Alice Kramden and Carl Kolchak from The Night Stalker.

Of those listed, it has to be Alice Kramden. Anyone who can cook a Thanksgiving dinner on that miserable little stove in that brooklyn apartment deserves a place at the table.

I would invite Dr. Smith and the robot.

Robots can't eat. But who wants the flaky Dr. Smith, plus his bantering with the constant bright light flashing from the Robot also?

I'd invite Hoss Cartwright, but there might not be any leftovers.

I'd invite Barney, I would fatten him up with fried chicken and gobs of butter on corn on the cob with dinner rolls with mash taters just so he would make weight for the deputy's job.

Mel Cooley and Fred Rutherford were
two wonderful characters played by
Richard Deacon.
Richard Deacon is one of my all-time favorite character actors, certainly rare to perform in two different sitcoms simultaneously for two years, 1961-63 overlap in The DVD Show and LITB. I was so shocked and saddened to hear of his death in Aug. 1984 at only 62. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0212586
