Eighties television star MacGyver has beaten out Indiana Jones, James Bond and others as the fictional hero most Americans would want by their side.

In a survey done by the McCormick Tribune Foundation, participants were given a choice of seven fictional heroes they could choose from to have by their side incase of an emergency: MacGyver, Indiana Jones, James Bond, John McClane, Jason Bourne, Jack Bauer or Lara Croft.

Twenty-seven percent of them selected the resourceful MacGyver, who was played by Richard Dean Anderson. During the run of the series from 1985 to 1992, MacGyver did everything from lighting a fuse without a match to stopping an acid leak with chocolate.

He was followed by Indiana Jones (16 per cent); John McClane (14 per cent); James Bond and Jason Bourne (8 per cent each); and Lara Croft and Jack Bauer of 24 (7 per cent each).

I'd have go to with Bonds!

and then whoever

Jack Bauer would be the WORST, how many people have died around him BUT him :D
I'd take:
1 MacGyver
2 Indy
3 Bond (Sean Connery)
4 Jack Bauer
I'd want MacGyver too. He can change the laws of physics, chemistry, etc. with just a wad of chewing gum, a piece of duct tape, and a lighter. ;)
Wouldn't you just want Lara Croft by your side?
Michael Weston.
Heck yeah!

MacGyver was my absolute favorite show. I've seen every ep at least 3-4 times. When I was younger I asked for a "MacGyver knife" for Christmas. I adored him and still do. There will never be another show like MacGyver--for sure.
