Sooo, my favorite character in "Megamind" is Minion, the main character's talking-fish-in-a-gorilla-suit henchman. But earlier this year there was "Despicable Me" (which I also liked), in which the villain's army of assistants were little yellow guys that looked like walking, talking Corn Pops... and were also called minions.
To distinguish the one from the others, and given that "Despicable Me" was directed by two French guys, and given that they did the voices of the minions, I've taken to calling them mignons. Clevair, no?
