Poll Suggestion: "They Should Get Together."

  • Updated 10 months ago
We've probably all seen T.V. shows and wondered what it would've been like if the characters crossed over and got in a relationship with a character from a different series. Below, that question is asked: and you answer. Which of these fictional characters from separate shows should be a couple?

Some of them might truly be compatible, while others are just funny. :)

Sorry if most of them are from old shows, but that's pretty much all I watch. :)

Thanks to everyone who suggested ideas on my previous thread https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/need-some-suggestions-for-my-poll-idea!  Even if I didn't use your idea entirely, they definitely gave me ideas and inspiration.  :)

NarniaisAwesome,

I'm trying to understand the logic of the pairings you suggest. On the surface, the pairings seem rather random.

For instance, why should these two characters get together:
Morticia Frump from "The Addams Family" and Ricky Ricardo from "I Love Lucy."

The Creepy, Kooky Lady and the Bandleader.

Thank you for asking!  

Well, the way I see it is some of the couples may seem random, but when you think about it, they might be funny together.  Just picture Morticia and Ricky as a couple:  Ricky's trying to go about his bandleader life, but Morticia's weird family is always baffling him, or trying to get in on the act.  (So like Lucy/the Mertzes, only more creepy, lol.)  

Or Doug Heffernan and Mary Richards.  Doug's a lazy, food loving guy, while Mary is ambitious and skinny.  :)

And then there's just the generation gap with some.  :)  

Hope that's a good answer!

I agree with Dan, these couples seem not only wrong for each other but honestly look like shows I'd never want to watch. Sorry.

Plus, you hardly used any of the many many suggestions from the other thread.

Its a good Idea on Paper. But hard to come up with P.C. Blurbs.
I know you put a lot of hard work on it. For it to be funny it would have to be a PG13 Poll!
Example
Mary Stone from "The Donna Reed Show" and Mike Seaver from "Growing Pains."
G Version
Will you still need me, well you still feed me, back in 64.
Non P.C.

I personally would do a poll like yours but it would be a Richard Pryor Don Rickles kind of Risque type of poll. That probably wont fly here.
I see your humor with your descriptions. Most folks' imaginations have to be dictated. Abstract imagination is where you and I are at. Making someone see that abstract, that is not used to operating on that level is tough. It will shoot right over at 30,000 feet.
You got to remember that unless the 3 or 4 that approve the polls, see it, it wont go live. Dan is one of those.
He was politely saying it needs a rewrite or a tweak.
I'd love to give you help on this but my gut says non P.C.
That will probably get you in hot water.
Or Not! Dunno. There is no hard do's and dont's.
Do what you feel and see what the feedback is.
My short answer
Polish it.

I almost did not want to answer as I did not want to hurt your feelings. It's harder being serious for me than being funny. LOL!

I saw Jen's comments above a bit ago. If you want help with this, I'll try.
Cheers.

 I know, I always put that stupid smiley face in almost every comment!  :)  There I go again!  Anyhow, if you'd like to make your own, separate poll of this, that's fine with me.  But I'd like to keep mine the way it is... even if it never becomes a poll.  Thank you!

Also, thanks for this.  :)

Most of my humor is like that.

Right now I'm not so sure one of my polls will ever go live again.
