98. The Polar Bear Guy
Best-known episode: "The Pez Dispenser"
Thank God Kramer's buddies from the Polar Bear Club show up at Jerry's apartment just as he's about to host an intervention for Richie Appel, an old comedian friend who's messed up on drugs. No one knows what to say or do, but the lead Polar Bear, played by Allen Bloomfield, has some experience to draw on: "We used to do that when one of our polar bears stopped coming. We'd go to his house, ‘What you don't wanna be a polar bear anymore? The water's too cold for you?'" He also educates Elaine on the concept of male kangaroo "pouch envy." JENNY ELISCU
