The Walking Dead's first season is an incredible beginning to a series that would extend for 11 seasons and create six spinoffs plus webisodes. The series is based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, which released its first issue in 2003.

Season 1 of The Walking Dead introduced interesting characters placed in an apocalypse overrun by slow-moving members of the undead, who are referred to as walkers. Many agree the first season is the best, with a small number of characters allowing for more focus on each one's story.

The Walking Dead Rick Grimes season 1 /

The first scene of the series is iconic within The Walking Dead universe. Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) walks toward a gas station, gas can in hand, hoping to find much-needed fuel to continue his trip to Atlanta, where he hopes to find his wife, Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), and son, Carl (Chandler Riggs).

Things take a drastic turn when he faces what he believes to be a lone little girl, but it turns out to be a walker. The pain on his face is evident, knowing what he must do. She would be known as the Teddy Bear Walker portrayed by a young Addy Miller, but before that, her name was Summer.

She is the first on-screen walker killed by Rick, but chronologically, he first killed a walker portrayed by Max Calder in front of Morgan's (Lennie James) house.
