Our goofy yellow friends climbed into the hearts and minds of children and adults alike when the first "Despicable Me" found its way into our theatres. Their popularity grew to the point where many sequels have been made. This brought more laughter to the globe with every new release.

It is obvious that although slightly inept at their jobs, these yellow creatures are serious about finding and following the best super-villain out there. With all their noises and antics, it is hard not to find affection in one's heart for them, even though they do the bidding of those hell-bent on making life difficult for everyone.

Either way, they appear to be fun and maybe slightly irritating. But if you need these tiny yellow monsters to keep quiet for a bit, keep some bananas around. We're sure they will be grateful.

If you enjoyed these quotes, you'll certainly enjoy this compilation from another set of animation favorites, SpongeBob SquarePants and his gang.
