14. Mr. Pitt

Best-known episode: "The Gymnast"
Roughly every third episode, Seinfeld's channel-mate Law & Order would feature a storyline about evil, out-of-touch rich people who ruled New York like their personal kingdom. Mr. Pitt was this show's goofy counterpoint: Played with supreme starchiness by the late Ian Abercrombie, he was a wealthy eccentric so consumed with finding just the right pair of white socks and eating his Snickers with silverware that he made Elaine's life hilariously miserable. To this day, we can't see Woody Woodpecker without thinking fondly of him. TIM GRIERSON
