Sitcoms from Western nations have managed to penetrate the global audience and this has been going on since the pre-online streaming platform era. Some of the sitcoms penetrated the global audience before the fastest mobile internet was in place and only a few could afford the WIFI. However, things changed with the introduction of online streaming platforms and the quick mobile internet.

This has provided the production houses not only to sell the rights to their television series but also to rewind the clock for their fans. There are many such TV series that were sold to online streaming platforms across the globe years after they were off-air. Meanwhile, in this listicle, we will discuss the Top 10 most loved characters from various sitcoms.
