  11. I know he’s not truly a science fiction character, but no legitimate answers come to mind.

  12. My favorite is Twilight Zone, but I went for what I thought would be most popular, although the fact that the Sci Fi Channel is currently running a marathon of Rod Serling’s signature series might skew responses.

I know HP and LOTR aren’t Sci-Fi, and to be honest I hate it when people call fantasy stuff “sci-fi”, but I couldn’t think of anything else to put for those two. Also, I’m not trying to insult anyone by calling HP a “childrens’” series. I’ve read them and I love them; I just thought it might be popular enough that some other people would answer the same.

Comments:

I think Superman does indeed count as sci-fi. After all, he came from another planet, and there are definite sci-fi-ish elements in the Superman legend.

#4 was tough, as it was difficult thinking of things that counted as children’s, sci-fi, and a series (Heinlein’s juveniles being one of the best examples of children’s sci-fi, but they don’t really form a series). I was tempted to put A Wrinkle in Time (and now I wish I had), Lucky Starr, or Artemis Fowl, but at the last minute went with a series I remembered from my own childhood (Danny Dunn).
