Washington, Sept. 5: Canines are apparently the favourite TV animals of all time, taking three of the top five spots and 20 places overall in a new survey.
According to TV Guide Magazine's new list, Lassie, the beloved collie, stood on the first position with a 19-year TV run, while the second spot was nabbed by the fictional talking horse Mister Ed, Fox News reported.
The adorably precocious Jack Russell terrier, Eddie, from the US sitcom 'Frasier' grabbed the third spot and was followed by 'Today Monkeyshines's temperamental chimp J. Fred Muggs.
Scooby-Doo from 'Scooby-Doo' series made up the top five.
Other animals on the list included Felix, from 'Felix the Cat', Kermit the frog, from 'Sesame Street', Pink Panther, from 'The Pink Panther Show' and Salem, from 'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch'.
'Friends's Marcel, 'The Muppet Show's Miss Piggy and 'The Mickey Mouse Club's Mickey Mouse also featured on the list. (ANI)
