Slogging insights

It can be from a show or a movie, but there's always that one character that can make you laugh, no matter the situation, and that's a universal truth. This character gives us the break we need from the more serious events and allows us to enjoy them on another level.

M贸nica Freitas Say no more, if this was a contest, you had won already 馃槀 I completely agree! Sokka was the whole package, had a good story and he was HILARIOUS. Avatar was good, but he made it better with his jokes

Meowth from the Pokemon series, or baby yoda 馃槀

AbeerJan 7, 2022, 7:51 PM

Luis from the Ant-Man movies is hands down the best storyteller 馃槅

Zaeem ShoaibJan 7, 2022, 10:06 PM

Oh, my fondest memory of a comic relief character is Mushu from the original and yes, still better, Mulan. Eddie Murphy's voice for the character was an excellent choice.
Which also brings me to, of course, Donkey!! from Shrek!

Zaeem ShoaibJan 7, 2022, 10:07 PM

Honorable mention goes to the late great Robbin Williams as the Genie in Aladdin

M贸nica Freitas You should! I wish I saw it growing up, the whole cartoon is amazing

Sara PintoJan 10, 2022, 4:07 PM

Jack Boreham Ah yes, the gem of Team Rocket! I loved when he made fun of Jessie and James, so funny! I haven't seen The Mandalorian yet, but that message made me want to watch it just to see it haha

Sara PintoJan 10, 2022, 4:10 PM

Abeer The best part is that Scott Lang by himself is already funny, so they made such a hilarious duo haha

I haven't seen the new Mulan yet, but I believe you. No one can beat Eddie Murphy giving voice to characters. My brother and I still repeat, to this day, some of the iconic lines he delivered 馃槀

M贸nica FreitasJan 10, 2022, 5:58 PM

Sara Pinto Oh, I know. My favorite character is Appa ahahah I also really liked The Legend of Kora.

Sara PintoJan 11, 2022, 10:12 AM

M贸nica Freitas I totally agree! I wish I had an Appa of my own haha

Sara PintoJan 11, 2022, 10:14 AM

Jack Boreham Do you recomend The Mandalorian?

M贸nica FreitasJan 11, 2022, 10:44 AM

Sara Pinto you can always get a dog and cosplay it as Appa 馃槀

Limarc Ambalina I was never much of a HIMYM girl, but I always liked Marshall. Plus, he had a great story!

Linh SmookeJan 17, 2022, 8:49 PM

Linh Smooke I think we can all agree that the end was pointless 馃槀

Sara PintoJan 18, 2022, 4:07 PM

M贸nica Freitas Linh Smooke Whenever I saw it, it was definitely because of him and Lily. They were pretty good! Even though I was not a fan, I completely understand the frustration haha
