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

By | May 13, 2020

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.
