It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!” 148

April 30, 2013

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!!

What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll entitled Superhero Sequels has now closed. Asking you which superhero sequel are you most excited to see. Over 35 votes came in but the end result was a bit expected. The winner for the #1 anticipated superhero sequel is:iron-man-3

  • Be sure to check out the rest of the results with the link HERE.

I wish to thank everyone that voted in the poll, shared it with others, and added to the conversation with your comments!


This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “Favorite Furry Friends” asks you to take time to consider some of your favorite furry companions in movies.

Whether or not you are a cat-lover, a dog-lover, or just an animal-lover there is no denying how much animals add to the feeling of a movie!the-muppets-animal

Animal companions in movies make you smile, laugh, cry, frown and more and they do it all through few to no words at all. (I know some people who wish they could say the same about their girlfriends). 😀 hahahahaha (sorry, that was mean, but it was too funny!)


From Turner & Hooch to E.T., The Extra Terrestrial (does he count to you?) to Pi in National Velvet…so many animals have earned a special place in the hearts of moviegoers around the world. Today’s post takes ANIMATED animals out of the picture so to speak. I am curious to know which movie animal is your favorite? So many to choose from, I narrowed it down to ten with a mixture of more than just dogs that seem to get the spotlight more than other animals.artax

There is an “OTHER” choice for your 2nd pick, but please eliminate the desire to include anything like Lady & the Tramp, Sebastian from Little Mermaid, Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon, etc. This poll is for live-action movie animals only!


That being said…

Today I ask you


Thanks for joining me today! Can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 5-7-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”

I do, however, have a secondary question for you. Please vote below:

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    I was tempted to answer “War Horse” just so I could say “My ‘Orse, Sir!!” LOL

    But then good tastes prevailed. 😉

      haha. good tastes indeed. LOL. and, once again, you had me repeating one of your comments in the implied accent. haha

    I say other for both of mine. Chewbacca and the shitzu from seven psychopaths.


    • April 30, 2013 11:32 am

      thanks for voting!


    • April 30, 2013 11:33 am

      Does Chewbacca really count? I don’t think so actually. I’m curious what others have to say!


      • April 30, 2013 12:00 pm

        If it was “furry friends”, yes. But since the actual poll question specified animals (implying the non-sapient use of the word), then no.

    What about Toto?


    • May 7, 2013 12:17 pm

      Toto is a good pick. I was surprised to learn that Toto was actually a girl dog! did you know that?

      thanks for voting!

        I just learned that this past week. And did you know that someone ghost wrote an autobiography of Toto–“I, Toto: The Autobiography of Terry, the Dog Who Was Toto”.

        It currently has (31) 5-star and (2) 4-star reviews w/ nothing lower.

        I ran into/met someone at a Film Festival last week and mentioned your pole and my vote. He proceeded to go on and on about Terry. He is a big fan to say the least.

        very cool to know. I had no idea either.

        and, hey, thanks for mentioning my page with someone else. the mention is special and very much appreciated man. Thanks!

        I’ll look up that book

    I choose 3 lovable animals; Shadow, Chance, and Sassy. I love Homeward Bound. However, if you made me choose two I would pick Shadow and Chance.


    • May 7, 2013 12:18 pm

      I gotta give you props, Sara, for your Homeward Bound choices. I loved that movie as a child! Thanks for voting

      A good pick my friend!


  7. May 1, 2013 12:33 am

    It’s clear I’m not big on animal companions as I only cast 1 vote on Artax.


    • May 7, 2013 12:19 pm

      Thanks for voting nonetheless man. Artax is a good choice!

    Hi, Terrence:

    I’m going with a pets vs. nature film from 1986, ‘The Adventures of Milo and Otis’. With a pug (Otis) and an orange tabby (Milo) have adventures in the Great Outdoors. Directed by Masanori Hata and narrated by Dudley Moore.

    Good catch on ‘Animal’ from ‘The Muppet Show’!


    • May 7, 2013 12:19 pm

      Thanks for being here. Always appreciate the comment! I loved Milo and Otis as a child. Still one of my favorite films! 🙂
