He threatened to leave the Dwarves. Knowing that Gandalf was powerful and wise, Thorin realised what a dangerous journey it would be if Gandalf was not with them. Gandalf also reminded the Dwarves that they were thirteen, and unless they accepted Bilbo, they would remain that many. Being highly superstitious, the Dwarves shuddered at the thought of setting out for such a perilous journey with a number as evil as 13.

He managed to escape while the dwarves where being caught. Gandalf rescued them by throwing his voice and having them argue with each other.

He uses some of his magic with fire. Gandalf was able to disappear and avoid being captured by the goblins because of Bilbo's warning shout. He then made the goblin's fire burst out brightly and used his sword to kill the goblin king.

Bilbo gives his cousin Frodo the One Ring after being hard pressed to do so by Gandalf. In fact, Bilbo almost drew his sword on Gandalf.

When? At the beginning, Gandalf the Grey chats to Bilbo saying he is looking for someone to go on an adventure. Bilbo, being timid at the start, is a little rude to Gandalf, but invites him to afternoon tea. Gandalf laughs and with his staff marks the front door "burglar for hire, etc". Later a knock on the door and after a while 13 dwarfs and Gandalf are in Bilbo's Bag End residence: Dwalin, Balin, Fili, Kili, Gloin, Oin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin Oakenshield. During the adventure Bilbo is separated numerous times from the dwarfs, and aids them in their escapades with his new found confidence and bravery and his magical ring.

While in the goblin tunnels, Dori was carrying Bilbo on his back since the hobbit was too small to keep up on his own. As they ran, a group of goblins quietly followed the company of dwarves and, sneaking up from behind, a goblin grabbed Dori by the foot, tripping him and causing him to drop poor Bilbo. The hobbit bumped his head on a rock and blacked out. A fight broke out between the goblins and dwarves, and then Gandalf shouted, "Follow me everybody!" and the dwarves all ran father into the tunnel with the wizard. Bilbo, being unconscious, was unable to follow and was left behind. Later, Gandalf was quite upset with Dori for not picking Bilbo up again, but Dori said in defense, "You shouted 'follow me everybody!' and everybody ought to have followed. We thought everybody had." Meanwhile, Bilbo went on in the tunnel once he gained consciousness, and proceeded to find the Ring and meet Gollum.

yes because he wants the treasure and to kill the dragon.

Gandalf was not a dwarf, so he would never be mistaken for one. He had a large pointy hat, rather than a hood like the dwarves wore. And his staff was another difference, in addition to being almost twice as tall as a dwarf.

In chaper two of the book The Hobbit, Bilbo gets a message from Thorin and Company telling him he can have 1/14 of total profits, and they will be waiting for him at 11:00 am sharp. so Bilbo goes off and starts his adventure and omplains that they get mutton all the time. Then the hobbit and all the dwarves are caught by trolls and Gandalf saves them from being eaten.

Bilbo is the burglar of the group, and it is his job to go and investigate the scene.In regards to the central themes: heroism, wisdom and nobility we can add the complexities of a noble thief: is this an oxymoron? And in terms of heroes it is ironic that the dwarves were sacked after rather timidly relegating the dirty-work to Bilbo. Do not expect this to change. As far as character-development goes, Bilbo is the central focus. He is growing into Gandalf's glowing pronouncement and the dwarves are‹for now, at least‹being themselves.

Bilbo kept from being captured by the Wood Elves in Mirkwood by using The Ring to turn himself invisible. He slipped in after the company of Elves that had captured the other members of The Company (namely, the twelve dwarves) as the Elves were escorting the dwarves into the Elven fortress.

After Bilbo drives away the giant spiders and saves the dwarves from being eaten, they view him with new found respect. He suddenly seems much more capable than they had imagined - a view which he continues to nurture in their adventures ahead.

He was scared of not being able to catch up with the rest of the dwarfs and Gandalf and he was afraid of being left all alone and not returning back home.

Bilbo is in the Mirkwood with no food or water. The dwarves have been captured by the elves. He realizes there is only one exit from the palace where the dwarves are being held. He manages to get the dwarves out, but is unable to escape right away himself. When he does get away, he is chased.

Rather secretive and certainly not very glamorous. They left hidden in barrels that were being recycled. Bilbo ended up trying to ride a barrel and not get too wet.

When Bilbo wakes up after being unconscious, it is pitch black and the ceilings are very low. Also, Gandalf and all of the elves are gone.

Bilbo has a dream about a door opening. When he woke up he discovered it wasn't a dream. His yell gave Gandalf enough time to prevent him from being caught so that he could rescue the others later.

There are a number of them. If you cite Biblo as the primary protagonist, and the dwarves as secondary, then the primary antagonist is Smaug, which the lessers being the Tolls, the Goblins of the Misty Mountains, Gollum (only for Bilbo), the Spiders of Mirkwood, Mirkwood itself, the Elves of the Woodland Realm, and the Men of Esgaroth on the Long Lake. At some point, all of them stood opposed to the Dwarves and Bilbo on their quest. Each of them is very different in their motivations too. The Trolls: Mostly motivated by hunger, which made them difficult to deal with for Bilbo. They were dim-witted, though, which was how Gandalf was able to trick them. The Goblins: The goblins were belligerent and confrontational, but that's their nature. Things might have gone differently had they not seen the Elf weapons and Gandalf not killed The Great Goblin. In the later parts of the book, they are motivated by revenge. Gollum: In the Hobbit, Gollum is motivated by hunger and his love of the Ring. AS a result, he was a conniving and deceitful. He planned to kill Bilbo no matter who won the contest of riddles. After losing the ring, he becomes unstable and more violent. Mirkwood: the forest is presented as almost being alive it its own right. It was dark, foreboding and didn't seem to want to let the Dwarves escape. The SPiders: the spiders, also motivated by hunger, were primarily used as a means to establish Bilbo as a capable member of the party. They were aggressive and evil. The Elves: The Elves just wanted to be left alone. They saw the Dwarves intrusion as an attack - or begging. When the Dwarves fled Erebor, they were well known to be beggars. Very few trusted them, and no one less than Elves. The Men: The men saw the Dwarves return as an good omen, since most of them were descendants of the lost town of Dale. They assumed the Dwarves knew how to get rid of the dragon. After the Dragon was slain, they felt that the Dwarves should compensate them, but the Dwarves were too greedy.

Gandalf had not meant to abandon the Dwarves and the Hobbit. But he had had to attend the meeting of the White Council and convince them to attack the Necromancer's fortress of Dol Guldur, because he had discovered that the Necromancer was actually Sauron biding his time and recovering his power. He hadalways intended to return to the Dwarves, and he did so at the right time on both occasions - once saving the Company from being eaten by trolls, the other time warning them of the coming of the Orcs and Wargs.

Bilbo is the protagonist because that is how the author depicted it. Done from a different viewpoint, Gandalf or Thorin could easily have been made the hero of the story, though both have many heroic aspects to them, despite being part of the supporting class.

There were already thirteen dwarves and the only reason they needed another to accompany them was due to thirteen being an unfortunate number. Bilbo was made the fourteenth mainly because of the unlucky number 13.

He was so pleased by their praise at the way that he so cleverly snuck into the camp without being seen, that he decided to keep the Ring out of it for a while.

Gandalf made the comment to Bilbo. He said something about there being more than meets the eye about Bilbo. He also said it to Frodo. Both times it was after they escaped from the Misty mountains.

I am not sure exactly what you mean, but I will answer for the two possibilities. In the movies/books The White Wizard joins ranks with Sauron and leaves the Elves, Humans, Hobbits, Dwarves, and various other races on the "good guys." Gandalf, being the second strongest wizard, takes up the title of The White Wizard after being killed in mortal combat by the Balrog, he is then reborn. Why they chose to make Gandalf caucasian, I do not know, it is probably just because that actor was best suited for the role of Gandalf.
