Remember that TropesAreNotBad; an expy can give an old character concept a new lease on life, take it in a different direction, adapt it to a new medium, or simply do something with it that's as good or better than the original. Iconic characters like YogiBear and MickeyMouse are obvious clones of [[TheHoneymooners Art Carney]] and FelixTheCat respectively, but that hasn't stopped them from being among the most acclaimed cartoon characters of all time.

An '''expy''' (short "exported character") is a character from one series who is unambiguously and deliberately based on a character in another, older series. A few minor traits, such as age or hair color, may change, but there's no doubt that they are almost one and the same. They often turn up in different works by the same writer(s) or production team.

Short for "exported character", an expy is a character from one series who is unambiguously and deliberately based on a character in another, older series. A few minor traits -- such as age and name -- may change, but there's no doubt that they are almost one and the same. Often seen in different works by the same writer(s) or production team.
