Gary Walsh vs. Buster Bluth
In the battle of the Tony Hale social misfits, it seems like Gary’s got the upper hand; he’s not quite as defenseless or as terrified of the world in general (particularly if he’s got his man-bag). But to the question of the “upper hand” – are we talking pre- or post-hook Buster? Because that thing can do some damage.
Archie Bunker vs. Peter Griffin
On one hand, this pair of casually bigoted and effortlessly offensive television patriarchs seems like a pretty even match-up (difficulties of real life taking on animation aside). On the other, Archie had Norman Lear writing for him, and Peter has Seth MacFarlane, so… game, set, match.
Norman Bates vs. Joffrey Baratheon
Psycho vs. psycho? Oh, this one could go any number of ways.
The girl in “Raspberry Beret” vs. the girl in “Little Red Corvette”
In the battle of women who were sexually aggressive enough to give Prince pause – and let’s really think on that for a moment – you’ve got to assume the one who asks “Baby, have you got enough gas?” has at least a slight edge.
Addison Dewitt vs. Hobson
When the theater critic from All About Eve and the butler from Arthur do battle, there are no raised fists, or even raised voices. Just two wry wits, sitting in opposite corners across a crowded room, absolutely devastating each other with their cutting wit and dryly delivered barbs. Of all the takedowns here, this is the one we’d like to see the most.
