The last time that we saw the beloved soccer ball from Cast Away (2000), he was floating on the ocean, tragically separated from the adoring Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks). We all know where Chuck went from there, but what do you think happened to Wilson?

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls099456155/
Poll: TBD

Suggestions welcomed. : )

He decided to cast a vote on an IMDb poll about that ever happened to him. He had learned about it after getting a ton of mail.

Dan. Yep. It's nowhere near done. Not indicating that she has yet to update other people's suggestions but there are duplicate placeholder spots: Lost and Jaws have two each.

Yes, unfortunately, it is. It has taken me a long time to go through all of the great suggestions, which has been very entertaining. : )  

I've finally made some progress lately, though, so I'll let everyone know when I get through it and I'll take down the "under construction" label on the list.

RubyFruit76,

FYC:

Captain Jack Sparrow found Wilson on a seashore and made him a member of the Black Pearl crew.

(sorry for posting this so late, I thought someone must have suggested it already.)

Wilson got his captain's names confused - often

Groucho Marx ... Captain Geoffrey T. Spaulding - The African explorer

Sorry. I had fixed the post. It should work now. That is Wilson himself talking.

That was meant for the 2nd image link for Wilson (1947).

Dennis the Menace (1959–1963)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052461/reference
Dennis' wide-eyed curiosity, well-meaning attempts to help out, 
and his simply being a normal, red-blooded American boy growing up 
always seemed to lead to trouble.
Usually on the receiving end was Dennis' next-door neighbor George Wilson

I made a little bit of progress, finally, and added a few suggestions today. I'll continue as soon as I can. Thank you, everyone, for all off the suggestions and feedback and for making me laugh! 
Oh, and thank you for your patience. : )
