    If you're going to mention Tonto, why not include Pat Brady as Roy Rogers sidekick? And Pancho was the Cisco Kid's sidekick. I forget Gene Autry's, but he had one also.

      Thank You! He could easily kick majority of the people asses on this list, even Robin!

    There is an error in your article. Since I am an avid Sherlock Holmes fan and have read all the original stories I must be picky for a moment; indulge me!

    Holmes never once said "Elementary, my dear Watson." He DID, however, say "The game is afoot."

    I just couldn't let that go.

    Also, after watching TLOTR trilogy I have concluded that it is Samwise Gamgee that is the hero, not Frodo, who would have perished early in the journey had it not been for Sam's leadership, strength and friendship.

    Sancho Panza the definitive sidekick should be on that list.

    Robin should be first, but where's Kato?

    Pippen should have made it too tho.

    Actually, the words "Elementary, my Dear Watson" were never written in Sherlock Holmes. It's a myth and….well…it's a rather funny one :) However, one of the most common words used in the stories is "ejaculated", as Watson always does that whenever he says something….

    How about Ethyl to Lucy Ricardo? Jay to Silent Bob? Amanda to Jigsaw? Bert to Ernie?

    One GLARING omission: Robin Hood's Sidekick Little John…you put in one of the most inept sidekicks ever (Barney Fife) and leave out of the Biggest and Baddest of All-Time

    I'd have to put Robin (in all his incarnations) on the list of worst sidekicks. Is there a list of those on here? Maybe I'll write one.

    My own favourite has to be Gabrielle from Xena: Warrior Princess. I think she was an inspiration to all of us of a certain age.

    Let's not forget Gabby Hayes , sidekick in scores of westerns.

    But Sancho Panza really should have made the list.

    I realize that this may be obscure but what about some of the golden age of television’s teams. Cisco Kid and Pancho, Ralph and Norton, Burns and Allen, Cid Caesar and Imogene Coco, Abbot and Costello, Mr Rourke and Tattoo. I realize they couldn’t all be on the list as you had to narrow it down to ten. The ten you have mentioned are worthy of the list. I would like to submit that you probably have enough sidekicks out there to warrant a second list. How about it. If it is at least half as good as this list, I think it would be very Interesting. While I’m commenting, have you ever done or would you consider doing a list of top ten heroes and their arch-enemies. You know, Holmes and Moriarty, Picard and Q, Batman and Joker, etc. Something in that vein. This was a great list.
