    Lisa Simpson – 'The Simpsons'
    Bart might think she's a wet blanket, but if it weren't for Lisa's common sense and critical thinking, Springfield would have slipped into anarchy a long time ago. Lisa proves that worldly curiosity and an inquisitive nature aren't things to be ashamed of, they're qualities that help save the day when you're surrounded by reactionary buffoons.

    Peter Parker – 'Spider-Man'
    Peter Parker is the quintessential geek hero, in that his nerdiness actually turns him into a crime-fighter with full-blown superpowers. Like the children on Willy Wonka's factory tour, Parker's curiosity during a science field trip results in a life-changing event. Luckily, instead of drowning in chocolate or turning into a giant blueberry, Parker becomes faster, stronger, and gains the ability to walk on walls.



    Josie Geller – 'Never Been Kissed'
    Most might assume Never Been Kissed is a cheesy comedy where Drew Barrymore gets to play dress up, but really it's a tale of redemption and catharsis. The once-nerdy Josie Geller has a second chance at high school and experiences what it's like to be cool, only to realize being true to her geeky self is the coolest thing of all.

    Max Fischer – 'Rushmore'
    Instead of friends, Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) collects hobbies. The truth of the matter is that he's just smarter than all his peers... smart enough to compete with a grown man for the affections of a woman who has no interest in either of them. In the end, Fischer loses the girl, but not before staging an uncharacteristically professional high school play that impresses even his biggest skeptics.



    Andy Stitzer – '40 Year Old Virgin'
    The 40 Year Old Virgin is a refreshing take on the classic geek character. Sure, Steve Carrell's character Andy is shy, conservative, and has a collection of toys still in their packages, but he's also a sweet, genuine human being with a layered personality and relatable problems. Andy proves that geeks aren't one dimensional and nice guys don't always finish last. (Sometimes they just have to wait four decades to get laid.)

    Garth – 'Wayne's World'
    In Wayne's World, Garth has all the trappings of a nerd—thick glasses, paralyzing anxiety when talking to beautiful women, an obsession with drums and metal music—but he turns these qualities into an effortless charm. His boyish awkwardness turns Kim Basinger on, he's got a popular late night show with his best friend, and he gets to play with bands like Aerosmith. Dreams do come true, even for geeks




    Liz Lemon – '30 Rock'
    Junk-food addicted hermit by nature, Princess Leia impersonator by choice, Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is comfortable in her own skin, and she's all the better for it. How else could she have become the lead writer on a variety show that has sketches like "Gaybraham Lincoln," "Hot Baby," and "Pam, the Overly Confident Morbidly Obese Woman"?

    Brian Johnson – 'The Breakfast Club'
    In The Breakfast Club, each character fits a stereotype, and they eventually reveal themselves to be something much more than their superficial labels suggest. As the "nerd," Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) shows his "cooler" classmates that being an overachiever is not without its challenges and stresses. Able to express himself eloquently, it's the brainy Brian who becomes the voice of the motley detention crew, giving words to everyone's emotions.



    Doc Brown – 'Back to the Future'
    Great Scott! Who wouldn't want to be friends with Doc Brown? He may be borderline deranged and totally far-out, but the man built a freakin' time machine out of a Delorean. Popularity, extreme wealth, exotic travel—it could all be yours if you had the ability to travel through space and time.

    Willow Rosenberg – 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
    As the nerdy Watson to Buffy's Sherlock, Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) starts off as Buffy's brainy researcher and loyal BFF. But after learning how to handle herself around vampires and demons, Willow becomes much more than that. And by "much more," we mean a badass sorceress who can rip the skin off of dudes with the power of her mind.




    Milton Waddams – 'Office Space'
    Anyone who has ever experienced injustice in the workplace can relate to Milton Waddams (Stephen Root). Tired of being walked on by his slick and obnoxious boss, soft-spoken Milty exacts his revenge by blowing up the office and walking away with hundreds of thousands of dollars in embezzled funds.

    Gary & Wyatt – 'Weird Science'
    What nerdy high school boy wouldn't love for the magic of Weird Science to become a reality? Shy and awkward around the opposite sex? Just create the perfect mate with some old computers and a perfectly placed lightning bolt. Thank you, Gary and Wyatt, for giving us all something to hope for.




    Abed Nadir – 'Community'
    Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi) is a socially awkward encyclopedia of all things pop culture. His life is made up of a series of quotes and references to the point that we have to question his sanity. But for as much as Abed is labeled a freak, it's his capacity for understanding human nature that is the uniting force behind Community's Greendale 7. He's the glue guy, and every group needs a glue guy.

    Data – 'The Goonies'
    The titular Goonies are a bunch of social outcasts, but it's this collection of misfits who saves an entire town from greedy real estate developers. Their treasure hunt turned rescue mission would have never succeeded had it not been for perhaps the biggest nerd in the group. Data's inventive mind and rudimentary contraptions prove to be quite handy on multiple occasions.




    Enid and Seymour – 'Ghost World'
    The makers of Ghost World probably never thought of themselves as trendsetters, but their characters are practically the template for what is now considered hipster cool. Seymour (Steve Buscemi) rocks vintage dad clothes and collects esoteric old records, while Enid (Thora Birch) is an aspiring artist with a '50s-inspired wardrobe. The two should just move to Williamsburg and start a blog about how what is nerdy one day is trendy the next.

    Betty Suarez – 'Ugly Betty'
    The fashion industry has earned a reputation of being both ruthless and shallow, which makes it an unlikely environment for a sweet, good-natured, mild-mannered geek like the titular character in Ugly Betty. In the end, it's Betty who rubs off on the cutthroat fashion world, showing that an individual doesn't have to sacrifice her personality or values to get ahead
