Classic TV Show Best Friends
Even your fave TV characters need a little love and support from their best friends. In tribute to all the people who make our lives a little easier (and a lot more fun), Kidzworld is taking a look at our favorite BFFs from television history. Check it out!
Kimmy Gibbler - Full House
Kimmy Gibbler was DJ's best friend on the hit '90s TV show Full House. She was brash, weird, and appeared to be pretty slow, but DJ defended her saying, "Kimmy's not an airhead. She just doesn't like to think." No matter how unlikable she seemed to the Tanners, the fans loved her, and she developed into a major character in later seasons of the show.
Vinnie Delpino - Doogie Howser, MD
Doogie may have been exceptionally intelligent (after all, he graduated from Princeton when he was 10!) but he had a pretty "everyman" best friend in the form of the fast-talking Vinnie Delpino. Vinnie was mischievous, outgoing, always on the prowl for ladies - and, most importantly, got Doogie to lighten up and act his age once in a while.
Milhouse Van Houten - The Simpsons
Poor Milhouse has the thankless task of being Bart Simpson's best friend. He's naïve, trusting and easily abused by Bart (not to mention the bullies at school) but he doesn't really seem to mind. Maybe because hanging out with Bart gives him easy access to his long-time crush, Lisa.
Paul Pfeifer - The Wonder Years
It's thought that Paul from The Wonder Years inspired the creation of Milhouse on The Simpsons. Nerdy, sensitive but highly intelligent, Paul sometimes was a bit of a buzz-kill for the slightly cooler Kevin Arnold, but, according to the final episode, the two remained lifelong best friends.
Stevie Kenarban - Malcolm in the Middle
Despite having glasses, asthma and being in a wheelchair, Stevie can be a feisty friend to Malcolm. He was originally set to be in only one episode of Malcolm in the Middle but was made a regular character because fans loved him so much.
