Mr. Show With Bob and David - Characters


Odenkirk and Cross tried to avoid using recurring characters a la Saturday Night Live, but a select few characters still appeared on the show more than once throughout its run. They are:

  • Ronnie Dobbs (David Cross) is a white trash habitual petty criminal, regularly caught in the act on Fuzz, a COPS-like program.
  • Terry Twillstein (Bob Odenkirk) is a British television producer who discovers Ronnie Dobbs and tries to utilize him in a West End-like fashion.
  • Senator Howell Tankerbell (Bob Odenkirk) is an ultra-conservative Georgia Dixiecrat Senator.
  • Three Times One Minus One (T.T.O.M.O) is an R&B duo made up of Pootie T. (Cross) and Wolfgang Amadeus Thelonius Van Funkenmeister The 19th and 3 Quarters (Odenkirk). Their repertoire includes the almost-wordless song "Ewww, Girl, Ewww", its exact replica "Eww, Girl, Eww, Girl", and the song "Goodbye 2 Every 1 Ever", written in memory of "everyone that's ever died". They are sponsored by the White People Co-opting Black Culture Network.
  • Droopy (Bob Odenkirk) is a dirty and chronically congested take on the "lazy twenty-something slacker" stereotype. He loves to messily eat chocolate and, for an unknown reason, wants to work at the front desk of his local museum, though he has few qualifications.
  • Dylan (David Cross) is an incredibly pretentious man clad in glasses and a long scarf, even in hot weather. He shuns popular American culture and modern technology, but is surprisingly friends with Droopy. In audio commentary, castmates describe Cross's first impression on them being reminiscent of Dylan.
  • Kedzie Matthews (Tom Kenny) is a hyperactive comedian. Despite his overblown, unfunny humor, everyone on the show finds him hilarious.
  • Fancy Pants (Bill Odenkirk) is a dandy who makes occasional silent, yet noted walk-ons. First seen clad in Edwardian garb he makes his second appearance in a more Elizabethan style.

Famous quotes containing the word characters:

    For the most part, only the light characters travel. Who are you that have no task to keep you at home?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Of all the characters I have known, perhaps Walden wears best, and best preserves its purity. Many men have been likened to it, but few deserve that honor. Though the woodchoppers have laid bare first this shore and then that, and the Irish have built their sties by it, and the railroad has infringed on its border, and the ice-men have skimmed it once, it is itself unchanged, the same water which my youthful eyes fell on; all the change is in me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The more gifted and talkative one’s characters are, the greater the chances of their resembling the author in tone or tint of mind.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
