11. Barney Fife (Don Knotts), 'The Andy Griffith Show'
In the sleepy town of Mayberry, North Carolina, there is no one as lovable as deputy sheriff Barney Fife. Overly emotional and completely insecure, Barney masks his shortcomings by overreacting to petty violations and claiming expertise in everything from women to law enforcement. Even so, Barney has a good heart and is fiercely loyal to Sheriff Andy Taylor.
