Who's your favorite incidental character in a host segment?

There were some great incidental characters that either visited the mads or the SOL crew.

My top 3 are:
Pitch a devil (not THE devil)
Phineus Tiberius Mindslap
Krankor when he pays the SOL a visit

Bonus:
“Eggs” the pain leak inspector

I love Mike’s one-off appearance as Toblerone in Escape 2000. I wish that had become a recurring character.

Oh, and Mike and Paul as Observers. They really were great whenever they showed up.

Edit: Oh, and Paul as Karl who was taken over by the Traveler’s Group and Todd who wasn’t threatened by Pearl at all.

Isn’t incidental a side character, someone who appears briefly? Krankor was the primary antagonist in the movie? Or are we just talking about what they were to the Host Segments.

Either way, Bowler Hat guy from The Deadly Bees. He was incidental to both the film and the Host Segments.

Also, I think they could have done something similar with whiney Whatney from Outlaw, just a walk-through on the SOL during a sketch, saying, “Cabot? Cabot! Cabot?!” and later in Deep 13, same thing… Cabot, Cabot, Cabot?

It’s a shame that we only got one appearance of Beez as Steffi the Babysitter.

She absolutely had genuine Mads cred.

I was referring to Krankor’s host segment visit on the SOL. But hey, we’re a pretty relaxed fanbase so it’s whatever is the most fun!

Yes! I absolutely loved her disgusted reaction to the title of the film “The Touch Of Satan”.

I’m going to go with my pat answer of “whatever role beez is playing.”

@optiMSTie I had such a crush on Steffi! She didn’t take poop from no one!

Also, Eddie is a really cool choice! That is such a funny episode, and Mike does a great job of mediocre acting so it comes off B-movie-ish. It is hard to believe it is the same guy who played Dr. Peanut! I think Mike really doesn’t get the acting credit he deserves.

Jerry Seinfeld as Freak Masterstroke was a great one off appearance for me. Also Bill Corbett as Leonardo Da Vinci in Werewolf cracks me up every time.

I forgot! I absolutely love Mike and Paul as clowns trapped in the Hexfield.

A&E host, Jack Perkins. So soothing. So erudite. So unfortunately no longer with us.
