Mugato: I catch Seinfeld whenever I come across it (it's not hard since it's on like 40 times a day) and I've never seen that "burning the Puerto Rican flag" clip. Is that too controversial for syndication or something?


It can air in syndication, but I haven't seen it air outside of TBS about three years ago. If you'll recall, they also took The Invitations out of syndication shortly after the Anthrax attacks post-September 11th.

A little more info about the episode.

I was always partial to Karen's (from Will and Grace) alter ego Anastasia Von Beaverhausen.

I'm really surprised that they missed Rusty Shackleford, though. Dale used that name a lot.

Art Vanderlay wins it hands down.

scottydoesntknow: cr7pilot: Roger is genius. It would be difficult to pick a favorite persona, but the episode where he pretends to be Dog the Bounty Hunter is one of my favorites.

That one was great (and also one of the best episodes, where Stan and Roger get high).

Omnivorous: Sorry, but the word "best" doesn't belong in the same sentence as anything from Seinfeld

You can stuff your "Sorrys" in a sack, mister.  Last night I saw the episode where Kramer doesn't trust doctors, so he goes to a vet for his cough.   The bit they did with Kramer starting to act like a dog was funny enough to keep me laughing for 5 minutes.


No, Kramer, you are bad! Bad neighbor!

my favorite is shallow vows, where he plays a wedding planner. He steals the entire show and everythng done as his jeannie gold planner is hysterical. I personally think that it is the best episode of american dad.

I think the longest sustained laugh I ever had was the episode where Kramer gets the set of the Merv Griffin show. Being English I don't even know who he is, but him acting like a talk show host and interviewing everyone was absolutely hilarious.


Farking THIS. I CRY whenever I watch that episode. The fact that most of the folks who sit on the set actually start speaking as if they were really on the show makes it even funnier.
