    N.T.Is from The Abyss because who would want to meet such beautiful intelligent creatures that can manipulate H2O so i can breathe under water and travel further than anyone into the deep blue. twitter:

    My favourite non-human character has to be Johnny 5 from Short Circuit. Number 5 is alive!

  9. 9 Brian Robinson November 14, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Mine would have to be wall-e. He is such a beast.

  10. 10 Geraldine Durant November 14, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    Fred Flinstone cause he was just so funny and who wouldn’t want to ride down the back of a dinosaur every day?


  11. 11 Adam G November 14, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    The MGM lion. Rawwr! He does get somewhat typecast though.

  12. 12 mskayz November 14, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    My favorite nonhuman character is Woody from Toy Story. Just watched Toy Story 3 and Woodt is still great!

  13. 13 Sam Clements November 14, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Favourite non-human character?

    Jar Jar Binks, for demonstrating the controversy that a group of pixels can cause!

  15. 15 Judy Bradley November 14, 2010 at 4:16 am

    I have always liked Tinker Bell, but I have to agree with the comment about Toothless the dragon in “How to Train Your Dragon” he is pretty awesome! I also love the Avatar characters & the whole movie!

  16. 16 Lizzi November 13, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    oops! @lizardbush

  17. 17 Lizzi November 13, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    It would be Chewbacca for me. Soft and cuddly but very protective and aggressive when necessary

  18. 18 Laura DeLuca November 13, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Louie from interview with a vampire-he’s just sooo sexy

  19. 19 hminnesota November 12, 2010 at 4:32 pm

  20. 20 Cathy S November 12, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    There are so many! I’m gonna go with R2-D2 he just cracks me up!



  21. 21 SickPigeon November 12, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    Oompa Loompas!!! My favorite color is orange. I love their riddle songs & dances, plus they make candy!! I even have Oompa Loompa shoes.


  22. 22 Daniel November 12, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    My favorite non-human character must be Wall-E. That cute lovable little robot, trying to pursue the love of his life.

  23. 23 Carla November 12, 2010 at 1:02 pm he was just so cute! @WelshbyBirth on twitter

  24. 24 susan smoaks November 12, 2010 at 12:59 pm

  27. 27 Sarah Barnett November 11, 2010 at 1:02 am

    At the moment, my favourite non human character has to be Toothless the Dragon from “How to train your dragon”

    I love that film so much, it’s so adorable!

  28. 28 Andy knights November 10, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    It would have to be the Predator, the reason for this it’s one he’ll of a bad ass and you fight it at your own peril.

  29. 29 Kevin E November 10, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    My favorite non-human character is Mickey Mouse!


  30. 30 Brandon Cox November 10, 2010 at 5:18 pm

    My favorite non-human character would have to be yoda because not only is the little green dude cool, but his speech is amazingly backwards, and dont forget his ability to kick your butt.

  31. 31 HappyMomC November 10, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    My favorite non-human character is Yoda from Star Wars. He is cute, so full of wisdom and I love the way he speaks!

  32. 32 Joe November 10, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    glad I didn’t buy this the 1st time it hit blu ray

  33. 33 hannah evans November 10, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    Mine is Jessica Rabbit because she’s shmokin’!!!

    Haven’t seen Avatar so I’ve got everything crossed!

  34. 34 Wendy McDonald November 10, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    ET is my favourite…I sobbed when he nearly died 😦 To this day, I wish I’d find my own extra-terrestrial in my garden shed! @wendymcd83

  35. 35 Molly Louise November 10, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Frank (the Rabbit) in Donnie Darko – brilliant depiction of Donnie’s alter-ego (and how great to be able to blame it all on a giant fictional rabbit)!


  36. 36 Levi Maku'e November 10, 2010 at 1:46 am

    My favorite non-human character is Yoda from the Star Wars movies. He’s short (like me) but is a master Jedi and is full of wisdom. Plus the way he speaks just makes him even cooler.

  37. 37 Natalie November 9, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    My favourite is Wall-E. I can empathise with a rusty robot that’s seen better days…


  38. 38 Alex Totir November 9, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Superman – he’s my favorite superhero and my favorite alien ever since I was a kid (15 years ago). I always admired his power and his will to help the humanity.


  39. 39 elaine November 9, 2010 at 8:40 pm


  40. 40 Eric November 9, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Has to be superman.

  41. 41 Margaret44 November 9, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    Chewbacca from Star Wars.
    Chewbacca specifically has the roar of the coolest Wookiee of all 🙂

  42. 42 Irene Wright November 9, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    I think Doctor Who is the best as he has brought pleasure to
    thousands of people – kids and adults.

  43. 43 evic November 9, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    My fav of all time has to be the Ewoks! Was awesome watching them work together on the forest moon of Endor against the Empire!

  44. 44 Haritina D. November 9, 2010 at 7:02 pm

    Donkey in the Shrek series. So darn cute!

  45. 45 Simon November 9, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    ET!!! Greatest movie of all time.

  46. 46 Ian Snailham November 9, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    My favourite non-human character of all time is the one and only Jedi Master Yoda.

    That would be Muppet Yoda by the way. CGI Yoda is not my favourite representation of the little dude.


  47. 47 tracey rollings November 9, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    my non human character of all time is dumbo cause through all his diversities he finally realises its good just just be who you are not only that he sooo cute and cuddly i love elephants @mrstracey1972

  48. 48 Kevinwj November 9, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    The Fox from Disneys Robin Hood, cos he was cool before it was cool to be cool!

    Yoda, because he’s funny and I love the way he talks!

  52. 52 Alex Greenwood November 9, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Disney have got to be the best at creating non-human characters! I think Wall.E is up there as a cute, loveable character with a nice environmental message all wrapped up into one! 🙂

  54. 54 Emily Hutchinson November 9, 2010 at 11:40 am

    The ball of fluff with teeth from The Dark Crystal – I always wanted one as a pet. Fizzgig, that was it – sort of like a vicious tribble.

  55. 55 Laura Hadland November 9, 2010 at 11:39 am

    Johnny 5. Give me a reason why he’s NOT the dude?
    He’s robotic, and he wants to be A-live.
    And he’s a damn fine dancer.

  56. 56 Jack November 9, 2010 at 5:48 am

    I imagine the Narn ambassador G’kar, from Babylon 5 is my favorite non-human alien. Or is he human? All of his foibles are ours, his pettiness, his temper, his short-sightedness. But also his desire for something better, his near-infinite hope that he and his race can rise above their current position, these are also a bold reflection of our humanity.

    I like ET!!! He’s so cute!!

  59. 59 bluevektor November 8, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    My favorite non-human character of all-time is Data from Star Trek. He was so borderline human but maintained some of his android characteristics. His use as a reflective tool on human traits was so interesting.

  60. 60 Mr. Chris November 8, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    I think my favorite non-human character of all time has to be Yoda from Star Wars. Why? Because he was a little green guy…full of useful knowledge, and the way he spoke was just great!

    For the contest, thank you. @PriusGuy2004, my Twitter name is.

  61. 61 Mike Schneider November 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Godzilla. Introduced as a monster, he’s run the range from hero to villain… aggressive to peaceful… he’s even died and resurrected. Filling every role from John Wayne to Jesus, this is one versatile lizard.

  62. 62 Diane B November 8, 2010 at 9:57 pm

    E.T. he was the most ugly/adorable lil creature of all time for me 🙂

  66. 66 Brian November 8, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    One of my favorites is Carol from Where The Wild Things Are. Probably because of the emotion the character showed, not just through James Gandolfini’s voice but through the puppetry of his body.

  67. 67 Vanessa November 8, 2010 at 7:10 pm

    My favourite would have to be Dory from Finding Nemo. For me, she’s the best thing about the film and is so funny. “Are… are you my conscience?”

  68. 68 leila prowting November 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Planet of the Apes, so many good memories with some of hollywood best actors Charlton Heston, James Withmore… After so many years i will watch it over and over again

  69. 69 jeannine m November 8, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    The Aliens in district 9……

  70. 70 leila prowting November 8, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    One to have in movie collection. Awesome movie.

  71. 71 Keith C November 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    Could be anything other than Johnny 5 from Short Circuit? Johnny 5 is alive!

  72. 72 Emma November 8, 2010 at 6:53 pm

    My favourite non-human character of all time is E.T. It is a classic! Peaceful, likeable, cute alien won’t attack us but need human’s help to go home.

    It may gives us a false security, but E.T. & Drew Barrymore just burned that in my head.

  73. 73 MrDisco November 8, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    My fav. non-human character would have to be R2-D2. Nothing phases that plucky little guy!

    twitter: MrDisco3

  74. 74 Ben D. November 8, 2010 at 6:48 pm

    My favorite non-human character of all time is definitely R2-D2. If it wasn’t for him, the good guys would have been defeated many times over! He is the true hero of the Star Wars saga!

  75. 75 Haritina D. November 8, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    This was such an amazing experience to watch

  76. 76 Simon November 8, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    I would love to win this!

  77. 77 Steve Johnson November 8, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Wall-E is my favourite non-human character because he is so innocent and naive in his actions. I could just see myself in his shoes (tracks) at many points in the film and feeling lost and confused, so I could totally relate.

  78. 78 Jake November 8, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Chewbacca from Star Wars.

    Surely the greatest non human character of all time mainly for his ludicrous voice, which can be used by humans in times of desperation (example – man stubs toe; man: *chewie voice* “gwwwwrrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrggghh”).

    He also has some pretty good hair going on and has a cross-bow…what weapon is cooler than a crossbow? exactly.

    case closed. game over. chewie wins.

  79. 79 Cassandra November 8, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    I watched Bolt the other day it was fab, this is exactly how I want my puppy to grow up like…..super-bark and everything!

  80. 80 Jane Wright November 8, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    My favourite character just has to be ET. Great family viewing – laughter and tears – a great winter sunday afternoon film. My family watch it and watch it and never tire of this loveable little alien.

  81. 81 Marsha Jones November 8, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    I would have to go with Scooby Doo. Loved watching the show as a child, and still enjoy watching them now with my son. @goalmom5

    Hurley the guinea pig from G-Force – he reminds me so much of my own fat Pepper Pig – silly and lazy and a little bit dim!

  84. 84 adam rogers November 8, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    R2-D2 hands down, little robot with big attitude… plus he has a cool colour scheme 🙂

    I forgot to add that my twitter ID is miriama59. Sorry about that.

  86. 86 Lee November 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    My fav has got to be the Aliens. Because they just seem like the ultimate nightmare. They blend into the shadows and wouldn’t give two thoughts to ripping your head off!

    Twitter: @LeeVEGETA

  87. 87 Kirsten November 8, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    If I have to say ONE it is Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo first entranced me when reading The Hobbit. Then I read more Tolkien and became fascinated with a genre of books I had never read before.
    But all the hobbits and characters from the series are my favorites of all time.

  88. 88 Neil November 8, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    That’s a hard one, but I’ll go with the Aliens from the Alien movies. The original trilogy honestly scared the hell of me back in the day when I was a kid.

    Twitter name: Snowx2k5

  89. 89 Catherine November 8, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    It has to be the awesome Toothless in How To Train Your Dragon.

    I would say that was one of my favourite films of this year and the fact that Toothless didn’t talk, was incredibly cute and funny (and looked a bit like my kitten) just made it a fabulous film to watch.

    Frank (the Rabbit) in Donnie Darko – brilliant depiction of Donnie’s alter-ego (and how great to be able to blame it all on a giant fictional rabbit)!

  91. 91 Lisa Rowsell November 8, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    I love Gizmo from the Gremlin films as he was very cute, but also very mischievious!

  92. 92 Shannon M November 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Shrek! He’s so sweet and gruff at the same time!
