With Hurricane Sandy currently barreling down on the eastern seaboard, there are plenty of folks hunkering down and riding out the storm with the help of their favorite movies and TV shows.
So in honor of those storm weatherers, we've decided to take a positive spin on the hurricane. These are some of our favorite characters named "Sandy" from movies and TV.
Sandy Cheeks from "Spongebob Squarepants"
As the only Texan under the sea, Sandy Cheeks was represented the air-breathing population of Bikini Bottom.
Sandy the Dog from "Annie"
Sandy. Sandy's his name, if you please.
Sandy Cohen from "The O.C."
If you live in the area around Orange County, California and are in need of a lawyer/surfer/good dad, there's only one dude to call. But bring bagels!
Sandy Olssen from "Grease"
We'll forgive the questionable transformation at the end, but we were rooting for Sandy and Danny all the way.
Sandy Frink from "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion"
You know that awkward guy from high school who had a crush on you and you shot down? Well, you'd be smart to keep an eye out for him at the reunion. He'll be the one with the helicopter.
Sandy Lyle from "Along Came Polly"
Who knew Philip Seymour Hoffman was this good at basketball?
