One thing that we rarely lose from childhood is the connections to literary characters who speak to our souls. Whether on TV, in the movies, or part of a book, fictional people help us navigate through life's challenges, and most importantly, remind us that we are not alone in our struggles.

10. I want a hug.
Eeyore - actually used to really like him as a kid because I felt bad for him and wanted to give him a hug. Now I want someone to give me a hug.
So true. I had a stuffed animal of him which I dragged everywhere as a kid. I even made him a little friendship bracelet. Man, I miss that.
9. Super relatable.
"I already have a drink. Do you think he'd buy me mozzarella sticks?"
8. I suck at clarinet.
You either die a Spongebob or live long enough to see yourself become a Squidward.
6. Have you bankrupted a town?
Ben Wyatt, minus the fantasy love. But I do love me a good calzone.
Oh God, I relate to Ben so much. I'm very much the serious worker who will stop everything to talk about nerd stuff if it is brought up in any capacity.
Are you also a man-genius with a slight but powerful body and a taut narrow frame like a sexy elf king?
I think Snorlax is a great one to be. Sleepy chill dude but when it comes to it you can k.o. a hoe in one move. I'm narcoleptic tho so I too relate to Snorlax.
The husband in porn vids : the only one who doesn't have sex.
So you see yourself in him, or in him?
3. Pass the cranberry sauce...
Linda Belcher! I just want to play and take care of people.
Mommy doesn't get drunk, she just has fun.
She's drunk, fun, and caring. Everything I aspire to be.
2. I just want to be alone in my swamp.
Shrek we're both gods and handsome and ogres.
Wow I kind of identify more with Donkey... especially with the constant SINGING!!!!!!
1. On so many levels.
Probably Angela from the Office
JAZZ IS STUPID! JUST PLAY THE RIGHT NOTES!
Secretly, we all fear having birthdays like the one in Sixteen Candles, where nobody shows up and we're forced to deal with how lonely we feel as people. But sometimes, people have things happen on their birthday that put Molly Ringwald to shame.
It stinks to have your special day go sour. Moreover, it hurts, that if whatever happened was bad enough, you will never be able to not associate your birthday with that awful thing.
