Script written by Savannah Sher

Can these kids get any cuter? Millie Bobbie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Finn Wolfhard are definitely the breakout actors in the last 2 years and for good reason. Stranger Things is arguably one of the best shows ever and these kids have done some pretty cute things that we wanted to showcase.

Top 10 Adorable/Funny “Stranger Things” Cast Moments

This show may be somber, but its young cast is anything but. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Adorable/Funny “Stranger Things” Cast Moments.

For this list, we’re looking at the most endearing moments that the kids of “Stranger Things” have had off-set.

#10: Making a Burrito With Stephen Colbert

Eleven’s favorite snack food might be Eggo waffles, but in this sketch on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” from September of 2016, Millie Bobby Brown helps the host cook up a meal of his own. In a spoof of the scenes from the show that take place in the Hawkins Laboratory before Eleven escaped, Millie uses her telekinetic abilities to heat up a burrito for Colbert and deliver it to his plate. Colbert plays the role of Eleven’s creepy “Papa”, and manages to bring light to a situation which would otherwise be totally sinister.

#9: Chocolate Daddy Meme

These kids sure know how to have fun together! In a September 2016 interview with “E!”, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo are discussing their newfound internet fame. They touch on what it has been like to receive attention from some of their favorite celebrities, but also get into a discussion on meme culture. Caleb at one point brings up the “chocolate daddy” meme that was created in his honor. He admits that he perpetuated it himself and that “chocolate daddy” is a nickname he gave himself. When the other two chime in with him, it’s almost too cute to handle.

#8: MTV Movie Awards & TV Awards Speech

At the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, “Stranger Things” was honored with one of the biggest awards of the night- Show of the Year. Earlier in the evening, Millie Bobby Brown had already taken home the statue for Best Actor in a Show, but this time the whole cast was able to take the stage to receive the accolade together. You can tell the kids have a nervous energy about them when they each take a turn with the mic, making sure to thank The Duffer Brothers, Netflix and of course their parents, who are watching from the crowd.

#7: Reacting to VR

Considering the scary nature of “Stranger Things” and the tender age of the primary cast members, it should come as no surprise that people want to freak them out. While they’re acting, they don’t get the full experience of seeing the CGI and special effects, so Netflix gave them VR headsets so they could fully immerse themselves in the horrifying world of Hawkins. Even though we can’t see what they’re seeing, it’s hilarious to watch their reactions to whatever it is that’s happening. And this isn’t the only time we’ve gotten a laugh at their expense...

#6: Stranger Strings

When the cast appeared on Jimmy Fallon in 2016, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlinand Finn Wolfhard made it quite the memorable episode. They started off by discussing the kiss between Eleven and Mike, which the two participating actors had quite different experiences with. Then they went on to play a game called “stranger strings” where they were each armed with a can of silly string, and had to reveal embarrassing facts about themselves. Millie Bobby Brown was the star of the show (as always) when she regaled the crowd with her Nicki Minaj impression.

#5: Handing Out PB&J

At the 2016 Primetime Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel was playing host, and decided to involve the kids of “Stranger Things” in the most appropriate fashion. Knowing the attendees would be hungry, he organized for his mom to make just about 7 thousand peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so that the guests could have a little snack part way through the night. Who better to ask to make the deliveries than the young “Stranger Things” castmembers? But wait...shouldn’t they have been handing out Eggos?

#4: Barb’s “Return”

Jimmy Fallon clearly loves “Stranger Things”, because he has taken the opportunity to involve the show in several different skits. In this one, he puts together a recreation of a scene from “Stranger Things” but adds a hilarious twist. Barb was the unsung hero of the series, a minor character who ended up with a serious following. In this sketch, Tonight Show writer A.D. Miles plays her in a faux deleted scene where she comes back from the Upside Down to give hell to the kids who left her there.

#3: Lip Sync Battle

For any young actor these days, participating in a Lip Sync Battle is practically a rite of passage. While Millie Bobby Brown wasn’t present for this one, all four boys took part in a competition to see who could impress the audience. Each of their performances was distinct and each seemed better than the last. Watching the other cast members look on as one of them performed showed just how tight this crew is. Caleb McLaughlin was declared the winner, but in the end it really felt like they were all in it together. And seeing Chrissy Teigen dressed as Barb was enough to put this episode over the edge.

#2: Dancing at the Emmys

“Stranger Things” may not taken home any actual awards at the 2016 Primetime Emmys, but the cast definitely won for most charming live performance. Before the broadcast actually began, Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo performed their own rendition of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ hit song, “Uptown Funk”. The song wasn’t initially televised, but luckily several versions hit the web not long afterwards. What do you think our odds are of getting a “Stranger Things” musical episode? These kids clearly have enough talent to carry it!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

#1: The 74th Annual Golden Globes Opening

When Jimmy Fallon hosted the Golden Globe Awards in early 2017, his opening number was one of the most memorable in recent years. The whole piece was “La La Land” themed, with stars from all of the years biggest TV and movie hits making appearances. The highlight though was definitely when the back of a truck opened up and the “Stranger Things” kids were inside in what looked like the set of the show, and Millie Bobby Brown gave a rap performance about her character. Can someone give this girl a musical career already?
