Which came first: the movie or the TV show?

Unlike chicken and eggs, this is not up for debate.

Which came first — the chicken or the egg? It's the oldest debate. At least in poultry.

But when it comes to Hollywood, we can be much more certain of things. Some TV shows were based on movies, and some movies were adapted from TV shows. 

Can you remember which came first when it comes to some beloved characters?

Below, you will see the movie (on the left) and the TV show (on the right). Pick which came first.
