Joseph "Little Joe" Cartwright - is a fictional character in the TV show Bonanza which aired on NBC for 14 seasons (1959-1974). Portrayed by Michael Landon, Little Joe is the third son of Ben Cartwright and the only child of Ben and Marie Cartwright, Ben’s third wife. He was named in honor of Marie Cartwright’s former husband Joseph "Big Joe" Collins who had saved the life of Ben Cartwright. Joe has little memory of his beloved mother, and was under five when she died in a horse riding accident. Little Joe received his nickname because compared to his brother, Hoss, he was little. Even as he grew up, the nickname stuck, and Hoss remained taller and larger than Joe. Joe enjoyed playing checkers and poker; he also made bets that ended up with hilarious results. His enthusiasm for life often got him acting before thinking of consequences. Joe was the romantic one in the family and was always eager to meet women.

Trivia: Magic Mike was loosely based on Channing Tatum's eight-month stint working at Male Encounter, a now-defunct strip club in Tampa, Florida when he was 18 years old.

Qwilfish (is a fictional character from Pokemon. Qwilfish is a sea dwelling Pokémon with a spherical body and a flat, paddle-shaped tail. The upper half of its body is dark teal and the lower half is very light yellow. Its tail is tall and thin with a dark teal outline, light yellow inside, and two dark teal dots in the center. Its eyes are even with its body and are always seen slanted angrily. Below its eyes are its puffy pink lips. All around its body are sharp, conical spikes, which evolved from scales over time. In order to attack, Qwilfish drinks over 2.6 gallons of water to inflate its body. It then uses the water pressure to shoot poisonous quills at its foe, which can cause fainting. Due to its round body, Qwilfish is not a great swimmer, and when filled with water it is even harder for it to swim)

Corporal "Radar" O'Reilly - is a fictional character of the M*A*S*H novels, film and TV series. Radar was portrayed by Gary Burghoff in both the film and on television, the only regular character played by a single actor. His full name is never given in the original novel or film, but on the TV series it is Walter Eugene O'Reilly, 'Walter' being picked by Burghoff himself. Radar is from Ottumwa, Iowa, and joined the army right out of high school. He seems to have extra-sensory perception, appearing at his commander's side before being called and finishing his sentences. He also has exceptionally good hearing, able to hear helicopters before anyone else, and to tell from the rotor sounds if they are coming in loaded or not. It was these abilities that earned him the nickname "Radar". In the film, Radar was portrayed as worldly and sneaky, a characterization that carried into the early part of the series. Soon after the TV pilot episode, Burghoff noted that the other characters were changing from the film portrayals and decided to follow. He and writer Larry Gelbart evolved Radar into a naïve farm boy, who still sleeps with his teddy bear and whose favorite beverage is Nehi brand grape soda. He has a virginal awkwardness with women, and a fondness for superhero comic book.
Scarecrow (is a character in the fictional Land of Oz created by American author L. Frank Baum and illustrator W.W. Denslow. In his first appearance, the Scarecrow reveals that he lacks a brain and desires above all else to have one. In reality, he is only two days old and merely naïve. Throughout the course of the novel, he proves to have the brains he seeks and is later recognized as "the wisest man in all of Oz," although he continues to credit the Wizard for them. He is, however, wise enough to know his own limitations and all too happy to hand the rulership of Oz, passed to him by the Wizard, to Princess Ozma, and become one of her trusted advisors, though he typically spends more time having fun than advising)
An illustration by W. W. Denslow from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, also known as The Wizard of Oz, a 1900 children's novel by L. Frank Baum..................
From the movie..................
Trivia: The face mask that Ray Bolger wore for his Scarecrow costume was made of rubber, and it was so heavy and tight that it nearly suffocated him several times. Bolger opened up about the difficulties of the costume, saying "I had a rubber mask. It sort of closed the pores in my face, and when the lights got real hot and ate up all the oxygen I couldn't breathe." In fact, the costumes were so unbearable for all three men on set that Judy Garland remembered how "each one was making bets as to which makeup was the most difficult all the way through the picture."

"Trapper" John McIntyre - is a fictional character in the novels, the film (played by Elliott Gould) and the M*A*S*H TV series (played by Wayne Rogers). He is one of the main characters in the M*A*S*H TV series during the first three seasons. His nickname comes from an incident in which he was caught having sex with a woman in the lavatory aboard a Boston & Maine Railway train: she claimed in her defense that "he trapped me!" In the book and the film, Trapper John serves as thoracic surgeon of the 4077th. In the film, he has a dry, sardonic, deadpan sense of humor, while in the M*A*S*H TV series he is more of a class clown. Trapper spends much of his time on the series engaging in mischief with Hawkeye Pierce, with the two playing practical jokes on Majors Frank Burns and "Hot Lips" Houlihan, drinking, and trying to seduce women. While Trapper expresses great love for his wife and daughters, he also fraternizes with the nurses a great deal with no pretense of fidelity. In the film, Hawkeye and Trapper are given roughly equal focus, but in the TV series the character became more of a sidekick to the character of Hawkeye. This frustrated Rogers, and in combination with a dispute over the terms of the contract for the fourth season, he quit the show; the character of Trapper was abruptly discharged from the Army and sent back to the United States between seasons. The character later appears in the spin-off TV series Trapper John, M.D., played by Pernell Roberts.
