41. Mickey Abbott
Best-known episode: "The Stand-In"
For seven fabulous episodes, Kramer and his good friend Mickey Abbott — a tough-talking, ill-tempered little person (do not call him a midget) — were the DeVito/Schwarzenegger of Must See TV. The gangly Kramer and his tiny cohort often found employment together that accentuated their odd coupleness, like when Abbott was a department store elf alongside Kramer's Santa in "The Race," or when Abbott portrayed a child actor's cue marker on a soap opera in "The Stand-In." Abbott was portrayed by Danny Woodburn, a former stand-up comedian who later had roles in Watchmen (as Rorschach's jailhouse tormentor) and Death to Smoochy along with over 100 TV appearances.
