Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and The Doc (Christopher Lloyd) in the Great trilogy "Back To The Future"
Still one of the favorites of many generations who enjoy the adventures of Marty going from the 50's to the Old West on board of the fantastic time machine  'The Delorian'
I have loved so many characters in TV and the movies that is hard to describe the reason for each, maybe is the originality, the funny side, how evil it was or simply a Great Performer,. So, since I like so many and some of them are from Latin America, I'm making a little compilation of most of them :

The whole cast of The Golden Girls
Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McLanahan), Rose Nylung (Betty White) and Dorothy Sborneak (Bea Arthur).  The unsuspected foursome that stole the show and the hearts of millions of people all over the world, the dignifying portrait of 4 senior women who live a life full of action, laughs and silly situations, all while nicely dressed and hair looking great.!
