As a Lord of the Rings fan I go for Frodo and Sam (Frodo would never have made it without Sam!)

Yes ... for sure!  Although my poll suggestion is for characters, not actors.  I guess if we could narrow down Gabby Hayes' most recognized character role, then I could consider deleting someone in favor of him.  But, as it stands right now, the "character" sidekicks I have listed are all pretty solid.  :)  TY for the comment.

No.  Not interested in starting a 2nd part.  But thank you for the suggestion.  :)  Am happy with this list as is.  And like I mentioned before, Gabby is an "actor" known for playing sidekick parts.  This list is for "characters" as sidekicks.

Too bad you hit your limit - I'm an endless barrel of unpopular suggestions, lol!  Ask anyone - I'm always here to suggest Narnia, Jack Slater, old sitcoms, and Winnie the Pooh stuff (I was gonna say for this one Piglet/Pooh or Reepicheep.)  :D

The new Christopher Robin is a wonderful movie, but I admit I was a little disappointed that Piglet was partly green and not all pink (although that's how he looked in A.A. Milne's book, which I love).  :)

What a good list! I have it narrowed down to four but it will be difficult to choose. I love that you included Wilson from Castaway, lol; he very well might get my vote.

Oh, I have a poll that's very similar to this one but for TV (https://www.imdb.com/poll/-9RZ6mQlkaA/?ref_=po_ti); it even has some of the same characters. When yours goes live, we can each add a link to the other's poll, through re-pushes, if you'd like to.
