It Ain’t Easy Being Green: 20 Memorable Green Characters from TV, Movies, and Video Games

I got the idea for this post when I was walking down the street and saw a parked green car with green characters painted all over it.  It was pretty ugly, but weird enough to look at for a bit.  I came to realize that at some point, the difficulty of being green got lost in the hype over blue.  The Na’vi from Avatar, Dr. Manhattan and his giant glowing dong, and sometime soon, the Smurfs themselves have made blue the “it” color.  Screw that – green is where it’s at.  For the purposes of this post, at least.

Below, check out 20 of the greatest/most memorable green characters from movies, television, and video games.  If I left one of your favorite green characters off, let me know.
