Once upon a time there was a lovable green ogre who fell in love with a beautiful fair maiden, and the two lived happily ever after. Of course, the road to happy wasn’t easy, and together, the couple made several new friends, four feature-length films, and millions of dollars in the process. Shrek (Mike Myers) might be on our list of 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years, but it’s the great ensemble cast that made the Shrek franchise’s four films so memorable. Before we meet new friends in next year’s Puss In Boots spin-off, tell us: Which Shrek fairy tale character is your favorite, and why?

We’re giving away 10 copies of Shrek: The Whole Story, which includes all four films, on DVD. The prizes are courtesy of DreamWorks Animation, and are available while supplies last.
