What are some famous duos?

Asked by shrubbery (10251points) May 25th, 2008

I’m think of having a party, allocating people costumes and telling them not to tell anyone else what their costume is, then they have to find their partner on the night, so for example I would allocate someone Tarzan and someone else Jane and they would have to find each other. Or someone B1 and someone else B2. Donald & Daisy, Ren & Stimpy, David and Goliath. What are some other ideas for the pairs? Doesn’t have to be cartoons or movies or anything specific.
