MANILA - From "Mr. Keating" to "Mrs. Doubtfire," fans of the late actor Robin Williams took to social media to recall some of his most memorable movie and television characters.

On Twitter, fans were quick to note his portrayal of an eccentric alien in the late '70s sitcom "Mork & Mindy," which kickstarted his career that spanned more than three decades.

Others commended his dramatic film debut in "The World According to Garp" (1982) and his Academy award-winning performance in "Good Morning, Vietnam" (1987).

His portrayal of a quirky homeless man in "The Fisher King" (1991) also earned mentions, while photos of him as the "Bicentennial Man" and the Genie from Disney's "Aladdin" flooded the micro-blogging site.

On Tuesday, ABS-CBNnews.com held a poll to see which of Williams' films resonated with readers the most.

Topping the list was the comedy "Mrs. Doubtfire," which saw Williams cross-dress as an old British nanny, longing to spend more time with his children.

The all-ages adventure film "Jumanji" came in second, followed by both "Dead Poets Society" -- which earned him Oscar nomination -- and the comedy-drama "Patch Adams."

But more than the result, the poll also prompted netizens to remember their favorite performance from the actor.

Many quoted Williams' most memorable lines, while some posted pictures of iconic moments from his films.

It followed the trend on Twitter, where his films such as "What Dreams May Come" and "Flubber" dominated conversations.
