First of all, thanks to those who expressed their concern. I'm out of the hospital and doing fine. I now have a brand-new aortic valve. So, the topic of this contest is animals that have played a starring or featured role in movies and television. Heroic animals, cute animals, funny animals. Let's restrict the entries to real, live animals -- no animation, costumed performers, puppetry or CGI. I'll allow entries from SF and fantasy -- including animal characters with fantasy attributes (e.g., animals that talk or have human-like personalities) as long as they're portrayed onscreen by living, breathing creatures. The usual restrictions: maximum image size 200 x 200 pixels, maximum file size 1 MB. So, to kick off the contest, here's my entry: America's favorite talking horse, Mister Ed. EDIT: Somehow the thread title ended up as "Misc Av Contest" instead of "TV and Media Av Contest." Can a mod fix that?
