My top 5 Childhood Bad Guys

5. Sheriff Nottingham in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves"

4. The Fratellis in "The Goonies"

3. J.P. and Natalie Sands in "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

2. Johnny in "The Karate Kid"

1. Velda Plendor in "Troop Beverly Hills"

What are your top five?


  1. Mmm...thinking. Oh what about Dr Claw from Inspector Gadget? Sorry that's all I've got :)

  2. Wow. I LOVE this list.

    5. Vicki Robinson, The Parent Trap (Haley Mills version - that character still pisses me off, such a satisfying ending to that movie)
    4. The Nothing, The Neverending Story
    3. The White Witch, The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe
    2. Skeksis, The Dark Crystal
    1. Willy Wonka (I know he wasn't actually a bad guy, but he scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.)

  3. AMAZING list lisa! I don't think I would make a single change!

  4. i'm pretty late to this party but wanted to say that i'm in agreement on all of these, especially the fratellis and vicki robinson. except maybe willy wonka, taryn. he didn't scare me, but the oompa-loompas did.

    i'd also like to add richards (james spader) from mannequin and king jareth (david bowie) from labyrinth. i learned at a young age that corporate takeover and baby theft were WRONG.
