    What is your favorite fictional animal?

    Fish, fowl, etc. they all count. I have a favorite but am interested in seeing others choices. I will give up my fave a little later on.

    My favorite fictional animal would have to be the mouse, Mr. Jingles, in The Green Mile by Stephen King.  I loved the complexity and the simplicity of the mouses appearance in the movie.  Mr. Jingles became a calming solution for one of the inmates on death row because the mouse became something to live for.  I love that the mouse had so much interaction with everyone around him: inmates and officers.  It seems silly, but you almost become attached and emotionally drawn to the character in certain parts.  For instance, when the mouse dies and John brings him back to life.  Or the hatred you might feel when Percy kills the mouse.  You want Mr. Jangles to live so that Eduard Delacroix has something to live and so he has his one last friend before his death.  I love that even the officers took a liking and a special kindness towards Mr. Jingles, even though he was the pet of a man on death row.  They made sure he had a place to live and that he wasn't hurt.  When the mouse did die, and was eventually brought back by John, they all hoped for his miracle.  I love the happiness, connection, and simplistic hope that Mr. Jingles brings to the story.

      Krysten: I love it! I was hoping for some characters outside the box...some that I had forgotten, and you offered a great one on the first answer. I too, loved Mousy Mouse. Thank you for the response, and welcome to hubpages!

    My favorite fictional animal has to be Charlotte from "Charlotte's Web" May we all be lucky enough to experience what the characters in E.B. White's beloved book experienced:
        "It is not often that someone comes along who is a great writer and a true friend...Charlotte was both"
       I read this book every year to my class....that line never fails to bring tears as I read it!

      How could anyone not love Charlotte? Of course, wondering about my own favorite, Charlotte was one that immediately came to mind.

      It's a classic for sure! I was also lucky enough to do the play for a theater group that I was a part of years ago. Great fun!

    I think mine has to be Babar the Elephant, from the children's books.  I'd always loved elephants as a kid and used to draw them all the time.

      Thanks, bravewarrior. Babar was one that I enjoyed growing up, and then I watched my children reading the stories a generation later. And now...my grandchildren!

      Those that stand the tests of time and are handed down thru the generations are the best!

    Ruth, the White Dragon; one of Anne McCaffrey's creations. I love several of her dragons, they are each totally different characters. Some of them are regal, some are sweet, all are wise in their own way. The Pern series is a great read and I have all of them. I have read them so often that they are just about memorized.

      Very good choice. It has been decades since I read that series and have thought about reading the first on again.

    2. Becky Katz profile image83
      Becky Katzposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      If it has been decades since you last read the series, you will be surprised to know that there are many more. Anne is no longer writing the series but her son is continuing the work. He is the only one she would allow to continue the series.

    Aslan from the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. He was my hero when I was a kid, and I love the film adaptions too. I just want to hug him! lol! These days kids are brought up with Harry Potter, but back then it was Aslan who was the most famous book character.

    1. wayne barrett profile image73
      wayne barrettposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Aslan is another that crossed my mind as well. Good choice!

    Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too by A.A. Milne. The rest of the gang is superb!
    As Pooh says, "Think, think, think." Allow your creative and clever juices to flow. Never stop thinking...

    I have two, dragons of all types and Stitch. My dragon collection is in the hundreds, with statues, plaques, drawings and even Christmas decoration.  My stitch collection is mainly stuffies and a few toys. My stitch collection would be larger but I have given each of my grandchildren one stuffie on their first Easter instead of a teddy bear. I have also presented the loveable stuffie to my sons girlfriends to welcome them into the family.

      one dragon has been mentioned so far...Ruth of the Dragon Riders of Pern.
      Personally, I've always been partial to H.R. Puffinstuff!

      DommaLeighposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I loved the pern series and yes I have stuffies that are dragons but I don't have a puffnstuff. Maybe I should get a magic flute to attract one? I used to love watching that show as a kid.

    I appreciate the answers I have gotten so far. Some I expected and some that were a surprise. I want to mention that my personal favorite has always been, Old Yeller!

    My heart belongs to Lassie. Lassie is a true female impersonator. How many knew she is actually a male. Smart writers brought this canine character through all kinds of family oriented adventures.

      Lassie was a family favorite when I was growing up. And yes, I did find out years later that Lassie was actually a Laddie!

    My favorite fictional character would have to be Cerberus.  Either that or the Chimera.   Harry Potter anyone?

    Eugene the Jeep. Created in 1936 for the Popeye strip and incorporated into the cartoon. He appeared similar to a small puppy but was from another dimension and had special, magical powers. It was so far ahead of it's time for the 30s and so out of place, it always fascinated me.
         Google eugenethejeep and read the whole biography. You will be amazed at the imagination taken, in that time, to create this creature.

    Thestrals.  Only some people can see them, and they aren't what they seem.  They seem threatening and imposing, but they aren't.  They're actually very useful and intelligent.  They have an excellent sense of direction and will take you anywhere.

      Good answers! Thestrals were my favorite creatures mentioned in those books.
