Entertainment Weekly lists "Best Sidekicks of all Time"

Entertainment Weekly's "Best Sidekicks of All Time" includes Seinfeld's George Constanza, Star Wars' Chewbacca, Lord of the Rings' Samwise Gamgee

from msnbc.msn.com:

LOS ANGELES - Greatest sidekick of all time?

According to Entertainment Weekly, it’s Johnny Carson’s longtime couch-warmer, Ed McMahon. The magazine picked what it deemed an all-time top-50 of second bananas.

Rounding out the top five, in order: Robin (Batman’s boy wonder), Jerry Seinfeld’s pal George Costanza, Han Solo’s buddy Chewbacca and Lucy Ricardo’s partner-in-crime and sometimes slime, Ethel Mertz. No. 6? Elementary, dear reader: Dr. Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ faithful companion.

Frodo Baggins' sidekick Samwise Gamgee was No. 7, followed by Ed Norton from "The Honeymooners" (No. 8), the diminutive Tattoo of "Fantasy Island" fame (No. 9) and Dwight Schrute of "The Office" rounds out the top 10.

A few others who did make the list: Howard Stern’s second-in-command, Robin Quivers (13); Napoleon Dynamite’s best bud, Pedro Sanchez (22) and Art Garfunkel, of Simon & Garfunkel (25).
