My girlfriend and I are in the middle of a major Bob Newhart Show marathon. We checked out all six seasons from the library.
The show is as funny as I remember from my childhood, maybe even more so since I actually get some of the jokes now.
It also reminded me that Mr. Carlin was the show 's funniest character.
Which got me thinking about some of my favorite sitcom characters.
In no particular order:
George Costanza (Seinfeld)
Charlie Harper (Two and a Half Men)
Barney Fife (Andy Griffith Show)
Colonel Klink (Hogan's Heroes)
Vince (Mike and Molly)
Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory)
Niles Crane (Frasier)
Red Forman (That 70's Show)
Ok Cha (Sullivan and Son)
Al Bundy (Married with Children)
Burt Campbell (Soap)
Doctor Johnny Fever (WKRP in Cincinnati)
Archie Bunker (All in the Family)
Edith Bunker (All in the Family)
Bubbles (Trailer Park Boys)
And a few more that have slipped my mind at the moment. I'll add them as they come to me.
