The marquee may have read "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle," but there weren't the only TV characters on the minds of some of the guests at last night's New York premiere. As for what small screen heroes they'd like to see on the big screen, ABC newsperson Elizabeth Vargas told PEOPLE that her fave "Lost in Space" family has already made it to the movies (albeit in a dud). "I could identify with Penny," said Vargas. Rapper Charli Baltimore said she and her daughters are big fans of "The Powerpuff Girls" (plans are already underway for a big screen treatment of that Cartoon Network series). Actress Cathy Moriarty proved herself an animal fancier -- favoring big screen appearances by Underdog, Felix the Cat and Scooby Doo -- as did former New York Jet and ex-"Monday Night Football" booth announcer Boomer Esiason. Who would HE like to see on the big screen? Magilla Gorilla. "That," Boomer told PEOPLE, "was brilliant."
