@boomerang,
Inspector Jacques Clouseau of The Pink Panther which for me is kind of a let down in that Peter Sellers who several times over portrayed Clouseau has the same birthday so it wasn't a stretch.

Randy Pearson (That 70s Show)
I don't know who this is, as I loathe that show and have never watched a full episode.

Right now I'm really only kind of jealous of hinghead and his big bird connection.

I've never seen "30 Rock" edgar and I don't have much of an idea of who Liz Lemon is but I know Tina Fey plays her and I love her Sarah Palin! Still, I was hoping to share a fictional birthday with someone I love -- like Harriet the spy...

I'm thinking more writers should tell us the character's birthday. I know it's always kind of fun to come across my birthday in print but I've only come across it a time or two. Usually in books that are written like diaries.

Why can't this be the other way around? I would love to identify with Garfield.

(A real-life person who shares my birthday was J. Edgar Hoover.)

Malcolm Reed from Star Trek: Enterprise, except he's probably born a good 150 years after me (the real actor is born the same year as I am, and the show took place a century and a half into the future, so yeah, his birthdate should be in 2112).

@ehBeth,
René Laloux
Born July 13, 1929
Paris, France
Died March 14, 2004 (aged 74)
Angoulême, Charente, Poitou-Charentes, France
Occupation Animator
Film director
Screenwriter
Years active 1960–1998

René Laloux (July 13, 1929–March 14, 2004) was a French animator and film director.

Biography

He was born in Paris in 1929 and went to art school to study painting. After some time working in advertising, he got a job in a psychiatric institution where he began experimenting in animation with the interns. It is at the psychiatric institution that he made 1960's Monkey's Teeth (Les Dents du Singe), in collaboration with Paul Grimault's studio, and using a script written by the Cour Cheverny's interns.

Another important collaborator of his was Roland Topor with whom Laloux made Dead Time (Les Temps Morts, 1964), The Snails (Les Escargots, 1965) and his most famous work, the feature length Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage, 1973).

Laloux also worked with Jean Giraud (Mœbius) to create the lesser known film Les Maîtres du temps (Time Masters) in 1981. Laloux's 1988 film, Gandahar, was released in the US as Light Years. The US version was redubbed by Harvey Weinstein, from a screenplay adapted by Isaac Asimov. The US version was not as successful as the French version, grossing less than $400,000 on its release.[1]

Laloux died of a heart attack on March 14, 2004 in Angoulême, Charente, Poitou-Charentes, France.

@hingehead,
And Mrs Hinge is Wallace from Wallace and Grommit. No wonder no-one takes us seriously.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
I chose René Laloux because he was an Animator, Film director, and Screenwriter. Who could be a more fictional character because of Laloux's occupation? His life was based on fiction. Does this make him a fictional character?
