It's a harsh fact of life that not everyone around the world speaks English. Can you believe it? And yet, they still want to partake in popular culture -- but on their terms. So, just like they use the metric system (the enlightened, practical-minded savages!), they also convert American movies and shows to their culture -- and that often includes the names. There are so many popular characters in books, movies, and TV shows. But who is the most popular? And why do they appeal to us? In this article, we'll take a look at some of the most popular characters and try to figure out what it is that makes them so special. We'll also discuss how these characters have evolved over time and what their popularity says about us as a society. So read on to find out more about your favorite characters and what they are called in other countries.

Here, allow us to be the Vincent Vega to your Jules Winfield and tell you what they call Donald Duck in Italy.
