5. Ralph Kramden (Jackie Gleason), 'The Honeymooners'

Ralph Kramden is a short-tempered, yet kind-hearted bus driver for the Gotham Bus Company. Kramden's hot head often leads to rows with his wife, Alice, to whom he constantly makes empty threats of violence — "One of these days, Alice! POW! Right in the kisser!" Ralph is famous for his get-rich-quick schemes and often involves his best friend Ed Norton in the plots.
