I noticed all the polls, and i felt obligated to read and respond to every one. It takes a while, but it is nice to see a lot of activity on these boards. Anyway, I went with Chet and Biff. Male Power!!

It really depends. I like Iola as a character, but Chet and Biff are better for detecting and entertainment value 8)

I went with Chet and Callie.  As I mentioned in another post, I really like the early Chet.  As with Callie, I was really fascinated with the way that she was portrayed in the Casefiles, not as just another damsel in distress, but she actually helped out on the cases and felt jealous that Frank and Joe always got the cases.

It's sad that new Hardy Boys fans who have only read the UB series, don't know any of the Hardy's friends like Biff, Tony, Phil and even Callie (good thing she appears in graphic novel #1). I wish they would appear in the UB series!

By the way, Biff is one of the Hardy friends who helps them out on cases in pretty much every other series, except for UB. He is big, likes sports, and shares many interests with Joe, who he is good friends with.

Tony Prito is a good friend of the Hardys, who at first works for his father's construction company but later starts working at Mr. Pizza (this forum's namesake), and becomes the manager.

Phillip Cohen is also friend of the boys, especially Frank, since they both are interested in electronics and computers. Sometimes Phil helps Frank and Joe out on cases, as a tech support of sorts.

Neither, Tony or Phil are originally from the US - Tony is Italian, Phil is Jewish. But note that by the end of the original series this was rarely, if ever mentioned.

I guess you if you didn't know who Tony was, JHR, then you probably didn't understand why this forum is called Mr. Pizza's Forum, did you?

Actually, no. I was wondering why they called it Mr. Pizza's Forum... :D

Also, Jerry Gilroy appeared in the first 10 volumes of the original series (both revised and original), but he hasn't been in the books since that point.

The Digests had the Hardy's gain a new friend who appeared in quite a few books from #135 onward, Jamaal Hawkins who was I believe Jamaican.

Oh yeah, I remember Jerry. And Jamaal. Hmm, two J's.

Anyways, I guess Chet is reigning, and surprisingly (at least to me) Bess is following in 2nd so far!
