Best TV Shows With Two or More Main Protagonists

OK, shows can have multiple main characters, but for this list I'm specifically talking about ones where there are two or more main protagonists. Like for example, SpongeBob has multiple main characters, but the true protagonists is SpongeBob himself. Compare that to shows like Tom and Jerry or Drake & Josh where there are two true protagonists and you'll see. EVER!

The Top Ten

Of the four Teletubbies, Po is my favorite of them by far. Go, Po, go!

Wow telling someone to grow up.
Ever heard of nostalgia?
The new Teletubbies is very different to the 90s.

3. The babies called Tiddlytubbies.
4. Po has a helmet now when she rides her scooter!
