Aphie from a Bug's Life. Random, but I always thought that little fella was so darn cute.

awww frankenweenie. he so cute. aphie too.

though i am a cat person in real life i'd say smitty from The Awful Truth

Jandy said...

Ha, I was going to say The Thin Man's Asta, which is the same dog as in The Awful Truth. :)

I'm a cat person IRL, too, but I can't think of any really great movie cats off the top of my head...Cat from Breakfast at Tiffany's? Or That Darn Cat? Baby from Bringing Up Baby?

The toaster from The Brave Little Toaster. I'll make him very welcome.

Do 6' talking rabbits count?

Shadow from "Homeward Bound." He is hands down the best, cutest, most loyal dog in movie history.

Amy said...

Milo from Milo and Otis. :)

"The Beast" from Beauty and the Beast.

Or is that too perverted? Haha.

NATHANIEL R said...

janine! hee. i assume this is pre-transformation. Are you hoping for the transformation or do you just keep him huge and furry?

brodie STAY DISCIPLINED!

Lassie from the original Lassie Come Home. Roddy McDowell can still make me cry at the end.

Buckley in The Royal Tenenbaums. Very handsome dog.

Kamikaze Camel said...

Can I say Frankenweenie too? If I ever get a dog I want a Frankenweenie.

"cat" from breakfast at tiffanys....wet of course. audrey & i would search for him/her through the streets of NY while it's pouring.

Pfangirl said...

Probably the Luck Dragon from Neverending Story... or Gizmo from Gremlins.

You can tell I'm a child of the 1980s, can't you? ;)

I change Teddy. I choose Murry from Who's That Girl.
I am a cat person BIG time and he comes accessorized.

NATHANIEL R said...

michael i had totally forgotten about Murry. thanks for reminder. the accessories alone, once sold, could keep him in food for a long long while.

i'm guessing he eats a lot too.

Deborah said...

Gizmo is a great choice. Or Stitch from Lilo & Stitch. Underrated movie, that.

Janine said...

Nate, I like to keep 'em huge and furry!

(post-transformation the Beast looks like my dad, and that's a bit too much for me.)

I would make Kate Beckinsale my pet. Put her on a leash and have her walk around with me everywhere. There would be lots of licking.

Cristhian said...

Balthasar, the donkey, from Au Hasard Balthasar.

Michael Parsons said...

I would feed him right wing christians

NATHANIEL R said...

HA!

NATHANIEL R said...

evil clown --you are eeeeevvil. but funny.

careful though. I've heard kate beckinsale bites. Or i mean, I've seen kate beckinsale bite. Pointy teeth and everything!

Jose said...

Toto of course!

Rick said...

Asta from the Thin Man movies. He looks good, is talented, and can mix a mean martini.

Missy said...

The dog from As Goods As It Gets.

The Black from "The Black Stallion".

For dogs, I like Jimmy Bean's dog in "Pollyanna" or the youngest brother's dog in "Summer Magic".

That's one thing I thought interesting about Viggo Mortensen - he did take home the horse that he rode in LOTR and also the horse in that other western he made after LOTR (I think that horse was called Paint - I don't remember the name of the other horse).
