Take a look at history, story-telling, and human nature and it's undeniable...We love heroes. We swoon over sweethearts. We loath villains. This gallery captures it all and the eye-stunning shots are sure to amaze. Click ahead and fearlessly dive into stories of unsolved mysteries, explore visual spectacles such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers in their first year as a band, melt over Amy Winehouse as an eight-year old dressed like Minnie Mouse, and laugh about the souped up car the Monkees drove around in.

Plus, we have shots of a shirtless Sonny Bono, Goldie Hawn hawking wine, and little Bill Gates in 8th grade. We hope you've rested your eyes - because we got photos to amaze! Onward!

Look at Andre the Giant with his posse. Mr. the Giant - was 7 feet 15 inches tall and weighed 520 lbs. His size was a result of gigantism caused by excess growth hormone. His gigantic size led him to be called: "The Eighth Wonder of the World."

One of his most famous wrestling bouts was with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III in 1987. Andre also played the beloved character Fezzik, the giant in The Princess Bride. Legend has it that Andre the Giant holds the world record for most beers consumed in one sitting. During a six-hour period he drank 119 of bottles. So, how many giant pee breaks would he have to take?
