I like the the WKRP mascot.........the WKRP Carp
Bailey Quarters, Johnny Fever(BOOGER!), and Venus Flytrap were great characters.
I forgot The Addams Family and The Munsters on my list!
Hard to believe that no one's mentioned SCTV/Second City? So many people got their start there.
I can't believe I forgot Brooklyn 99. I love that show. Holt is awesome and I have a mad crush on Rosa.
The IT crowd
Most of the above didn't go on too long which IMHO is the problem I have with a lot of modern comedy series; they don't seem to know when to stop.
* (For non UK readers): Tony Robinson (aka 'Baldrick') does a serious TV series called 'Time team' where they excavate archaeological sites. I can't watch it without expecting him to have a 'cunning plan' or make some other 'Baldrick' comment. I've also seen an old Leslie Nielson film where he was playing a serious role and I had the same problem.
Tony also did a series on the worst jobs in history. Almost all of them involved excrement of some sort.
I have the same thoughts when watching Hugh Laurie in a serious role. After seeing him on Blackadder, it's difficult to see him in another light.
12 episodes of pure comedy genius that stands the test of time.
