The Five: Characters I'd love to be

The Dick Van Dyke ShowI don't have a  bad life, but there are just so many characters on TV I'd love to be. Here are the top five:

  1. Rob Petrie (The Dick Van Dyke Show): Writer for a hit TV show in New York City by day, and then he comes home to an ultra-cool home at night to eat dinner with Mary Tyler Moore. I want to be Rob Petrie.
  2. Thomas Magnum (Magnum, P.I.): I'm not even a warm-climate sort of guy, but I can imagine being a private eye (sorry, private investigator, as Magnum himself would correct me) on Oahu, living on an outrageous estate with my own private quarters and a red Ferrari. Yeah, I can picture that.
  3. Bugs Bunny: Independent wise-ass. I'd probably put on some pants though.
  4. Kelly Robinson or Alexander Scott (I Spy): To travel around the world on someone else's dime, drinking and swingin' and fightin' spies. Sounds cool to me.  
  5. Charlie (Two and a Half Men): This guy never seems to be doing his job (writing commercial jingles) because he's too busy drinking and bedding beautiful women, but he still seems to make a boat load in cash. Sign me up.

Josh Lyman. Or Jack Bauer.

When I was a kid, before my appreciation of MTM (along with hormones) kicked in, I wanted to be Buddy Sorrell, played by Morey Amsterdam on 'The Dick Van Dyke Show'.

He got paid to tell jokes, sleep on the couch, and make fun of a bald guy. I thought that sounded like a good way to make money, and I would often practice the third part on my uncle.
