“Entertainment Weekly” posted a list of “16 Great Pop Culture Trios.”  It’s unclear whether or not they’re ranked . . . but they ARE numbered, so let’s go ahead and assume they’re in this order for a reason.

They didn’t say much about the list, other than that the trios were taken from “movies and TV,” so that’s why the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria didn’t make the list.  But it doesn’t explain the absence of Snap, Crackle, and Pop.  (???) 



Here’s the list:



1.  Jack, Janet, and Chrissy from “Three’s Company”


2.  Buffy, Willow, and Xander from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”


3.  Harry, Ron, and Hermione from “Harry Potter”


4.  Luke, Leia, and Han from “Star Wars”


5.  Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith, and Kate Jackson from “Charlie’s Angels”


6.  Curly, Larry, and Moe from “The Three Stooges” 


(No love for Shemp?  Hey, he was no Curly, but he could Stooge like a mofo in his own way!)


7.  Kirk, Spock, and McCoy from “Star Trek”


8.  Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short from “Three Amigos”


9.  Lizzie, Gordo, and Miranda from “Lizzie McGuire”


10.  Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup from “The Powerpuff Girls”


11.  Sam, Neal, and Bill from “Freaks and Geeks”


12.  Judy, Violet, and Doralee from “9 to 5”


13.  Cory, Shawn, and Topanga from “Boy Meets World”


14.  Ferris, Cameron, and Sloane from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”


15.  The Sanderson Sisters from “Hocus Pocus”


16.  Annie, Brenda, and Elise from “The First Wives Club”
