MR. FURLEY, THREE'S COMPANY Such a formative show for me! With the pantsuits and scarves, he reminded me of one of my grandmothers.
MORK, MORK & MINDY He's an alien—odd by definition—but I was obsessed with him as a child. My 5th birthday party was a Mork & Mindy party.
MRS. McCLUSKEY, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES She's like the fool character in a Shakespeare play: She's disregarded, but has insights.
BENTLEY, THE JEFFERSONS He was childlike. Sometimes people didn't have the patience to deal with him. I don't blame them!
PAULA ABDUL, AMERICAN IDOL I love her! You never know what she's going to say. If she was gone [from the show], we'd really suffer for it.
