People Voted for the Best Fictional Pet They Would Like to Have, and It’s Not Even Scooby-Doo

When we watch a cartoon or a movie where the heroes have unusual pets with superpowers, we often wish we had a pet like that. The Ranker website offered people a chance to vote for the best animal characters from movies, cartoons, comics, and books that they would like to have as their pets in real life. Cats, dogs, birds, monkeys, and even tigers made the cut — and they ended up with a big list of popular fictional animals that we adore, with quite an unexpected hero at the top.

Here at Bright Side, we want to share the top 20 animals with you from this poll, and we wonder if you’ll find this list as surprising as we did.

20th place: Wilbur from Charlotte’s Web

19th place: Sven from Frozen

18th place: Lassie from Lassie

17th place: Figaro from Pinocchio

15th place: Garfield from Garfield

13th place: Pluto from Disney movies

12th place: Bolt from Bolt

11th place: Rajah from Aladdin

10th place: Pikachu from the Pokémon movies

9th place: Abu from Aladdin

8th place: Pascal from Tangled

7th place: Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes comics

6th place: Hedwig from Harry Potter movies and novels

5th place: Scooby-Doo from the Scooby-Doo movies

4th place: Snoopy from the Peanuts comics

3rd place: Stitch from Lilo & Stitch

2nd place: Dug from Up

1st place: Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon

Which of these creatures would you like to actually own and why? Would you add any other fictional animal characters to this list?
