Y is our last stretch for the alphabet, but I loved this one because of the cute little Enchanted Forest version! Y is being represented by Jiminy Cricket, known as Archie Hopper in Storybrooke!
Jiminy has a great backstory. He wasn't always a cricket - he was raised by immoral parents who got him to steal from a young age but he never liked it. After helping Rumplestiltskin, he asks for a way to escape from his parents as a reward. Rumple gives him a potion that is accidentally taken by a nice couple and turns them into puppets. Turns out, those were the parents of young Gepetto. In an effort to make up for his mistake, he begs for help from the Blue Fairy, who can't reverse the spell but does turn him into a cricket so he can escape his parents and he becomes the lifelong friend of Gepetto as a result.
In Storybrooke, Archie is the local psychiatrist who tries to help Henry with his "delusion" about the truth about Storybrooke before the curse is broken. He also owns the dalmatian, Pongo - I keep waiting for Perdita to show up and Archie to get a love story of his own!
