We laughed, we cried, we ate a lot of popcorn.

From Laverne and Shirley to The Blues Brothers to The Odd Couple, we’ve always loved to watch best friends fight, make up and generally yuck it up on screen. After all, there’s a whole genre of film called The Buddy Picture!

To these celluloid pals and others, we dedicate this homage in celebration of the United Nations-designated International Day of Friendship, which occurs every July 30. Feel free to add your own favorites to the Comments section, below.

1. Laurel & Hardy

Hilarity ensues when a happy-go-lucky clumsy chap meets a portly and pompous fellow. These masters of slapstick kept audiences in stitches while trying to get out of yet another  nice mess.

2. Scooby and Shaggy

Zoinks! This pair of scaredy cats could solve a mystery even by running away in fear. The ghosts, ghouls and goblins would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for the Scooby-snack eating tag team of meddling best friends.

3. The Golden Girls

See if you can get through this scene without crying—and laughing.

4. Timon and Pumbaa

The carefree comedy duo from the animated film The Lion King consists of a quick-witted and silver-tongued meerkat and a slightly pungent-smelling warthog who live by their motto “Hakuna Matata,” which means “No Worries.” Together they help Simba safely return to Pride Rock.

5. The cast of Friends

So no one told you life was gonna be this way … (clap, clap, clap, clap). Whether it was Ross and Rachel, or Joey and Rachel or Chandler and Monica or Phoebe and, eventually, Mike (Paul Rudd), six best friends navigate through life, love and coffee in New York.
