Limericks based on Movie and TV Characters

This collection of limericks uses heroes and characters from TV and movies for inspiration. I have tried to select characters, TV shows and movies that most people are familiar with. Hopefully at least some of these give you a laugh.

Super Surrealism

Superman the Man of Steel,

Met Salvador Dali in the town of Medfield.

He said, 'Paint my picture

As a top baseball pitcher."

The red sox and cape looked surreal.

The Ultimate Bond Girl

James Bond Agent 007,

Was so suave and attractive to women,

Though the girl he adored

Was called Pussy Galore,

A name that was made in Man's Heaven.

Anti-Smoking Alpaca

I once owned a pet alpaca

That hated the smell of tobacc(a).

When I lit up a smoke,

He'd cough and he'd choke.

His face would distort like Chewbacca.


The Flash

The Incredible Flash

A superhero named the Flash

From here to there would always dash.

He rushed into a tunnel,

Now he's poured through a funnel,

And the train was delayed in the crash.

A Girl Called 'Pond'.

There once was a girl they called 'Pond'.

Of 'The Doctor' she was quite fond.

Though 'Rory' she wed,

What got into her head?

As companion for 'Who', she belonged.

Castle and Beckett

Castle Wrestle

A mystery writer named 'Castle'

Caused the New York police quite a hassle.

His attraction to Beckett

Made the situation delicate,

Because with her he wanted to wrestle.

Mr Spock

Star Trekking

Star Trek the Next Generation

Captured many an imagination.

Though the original show,

Went where others won't go.

Mr Spock the show's greatest creation.

Thanks for the laughs John, I really thought that they were funny. I just heard something on the radio this morning about laughter being a great healer, but I knew that - I laugh all of the time. I enjoyed the video at the end too. Up and shared.

Very creative, John. The Bond one had me chuckling. I think my favorite is the one about Castle and Beckett. I always knew they'd eventually hook up.

This was a great read! I found myself letting out a few chuckles along the way. I like how you chose entertainment (TV and characters) as your topic. Job well done!

Jodah this was a great idea for laughter. The 3 Stooges crack me up every time too. Can't get enough of that crazy Richard Pryor either. I remember when I used to laugh until my side would ache. Great job buddy...

Thanks for reading Shauna. Glad you liked the Bond and Castle ones. Yes, good to see characters in tv shows eventually hook up these days...Castle and Beckett, Bones and Booth..next it has to happen in the Mentalist with Patrick Jane and Liz.

Thanks word, yes I am still a fan of the Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, and Abbott and Costello. Richard Prior was hilarious too. Shame Ill health ended his career.

Very clever, John. :-) My favorite was Mr. Spock. I didn’t watch the series until the first film was released, and was hooked. It’s a shame the powers that be didn’t let this show run a bit longer. Subsequent series paled in comparison.

John, I think it has happened in the Mentalist. Nice to know we watch the same shows. Love Bones. Booth brings out the best in her.


Jodah profile image

Jodah 2 years ago from Queensland Australia Author

Hi again Shauna, maybe it has in the mentalist too. We are probably a season behind here. Sounds like we watch the same shows though.

Jodah,

With each limerick, I would think okay this one is my favorite, but the Star Trek won above all the rest although Bond was a very close second...

Laughter is the best medicine. Thank You for being such a great doctor.

V+/Share as always dear friend,

Kim

Jodah 2 years ago from Queensland Australia Author

Just call me Dr John, Kim. You are so right, laughter can heal every ill. Thanks you for the vote up and share too. The Star Trek limerick seems the most popular so far. :)
