Top 10 Comedic Character Duos in an Animated Series

The Top Ten
1 Tom and Jerry - Tom & Jerry
2 Rick and Morty - Rick and Morty

Absolute perfection of the trope, enough said; I don't even like the show nearly as much as most, and even I can agree on this

3 Beavis and Butt-Head - Beavis and Butt-Head

One of the all-time best parodies of stereotypical dumb rock-elitist teenagers at the time, hands down

4 Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck - Looney Toons
5 SpongeBob and Patrick - SpongeBob SquarePants
6 Ren and Stimpy - The Ren and Stimpy Show
7 Pinky and Brain - Pinky and the Brain
8 Jim and Peter - Earthworm Jim

Oh, and also, before I forget:


JIM: Don't you think it's STRANGE, a giant worm and a talking dog living together?

PETER: It isn't strange; there's a warthog down the street who lives with a talking eggplant!

Long story short, this show is the most underrated thing I've seen in a LONG time; I'm not spoiling the episode origins, but examples of some of the more hilarious dialogue exchanges between the two include:

JIM: (flies his way through the understandably terrified Psycrow's ear canal until he finally reaches the poor bastard's ridiculously small brain) PSYCROW'S BEHAVIORAL CONTROL CENTER! QUICK! (swings his hand out behind him so ludicrously exaggeratedly and forcefully that Peter Puppy reflexively flinches backward to avoid getting hit in the face with it) YOUR TAPE PLAYER!
PETER: You're NOT gonna get CUSTARD (totally not an innuendo for man-juice) all over it again, ARE YOU?!
JIM: (shoots priceless death glare at Peter, then snatches the device right out of his hands and jams it directly into Psycrow's cerebral cortex)

PETER: Well, you see, my college education tells me that (insert hilariously long and over-complicated string of scientific ...more

9 Daggett and Norbert - Angry Beavers
10 Yakko and Wakko - Animaniacs
The Contenders
11 Heffer and Filburt - Rocko's Modern Life

My personal favorite scene from them:

FILBURT: (with his potato chips stacked up on the desk of his local high school's science lab in a disturbingly meticulous fashion) Okay, I'll eat THIS one today, and THIS one tomorrow, and then I'll save THIS one for cartoons (grabs handful of them and starts holding it like a handful of playing cards), and then I'll eat this one right now...yeah, that's right, baby, I'm eating YOU!
HEFFER: (glares greedily intently at Filburt's chip stash)
FILBURT: Oh no! Oh NO NO NO NO NONONONONONONO! I AIN'T GIVING HIM NOTHING! Lemme tell you something, pal; I got PLANS for these chips! YOU ATE YOURS, FAT BOY! THESE BABIES ARE MINNNE! (continues counting his chips like a stereotypical Jew counting his coins)
HEFFER: (completely loses his mind and lunges onto Filburt, initiating a classic Looney-Toons-style "dust brawl" between the two)
FILBURT: GET your FAT stinking hooves OFF of me! (wins the fight and looks down angrily at Heffer while ...more

Same here as with Ren and Stimpy (don't worry, Pinky and the Brain are coming up soon)
