Great TV characters never truly go away. Sure, their shows may eventually be cancelled but we get to see them via reruns, DVDs, and maybe even an occasional reunion. If we're lucky, they might even pop up in an unexpected place or two -- like The Price Is Right and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.
The Drew Carey Show ran from 1995 until 2006. The sitcom centers around a nice guy (Drew Carey) who works in the human resources department of a multinational department store. His boss is Mr. Wick (Craig Ferguson), a nasty man with a loathsome secretary named Mimi Bobeck (Kathy Kinney) -- an overweight woman who wears too much makeup. Other characters are played by Ryan Stiles, Diedrich Bader, Christa Miller, John Carroll Lynch, Cynthia Watros, Ian Gomez, and Nan Martin.
The castmembers are all very talented but the show's most memorable persona is certainly Kinney's egocentric Mimi. Interestingly, the character was intended to only appear in the pilot episode but the audience's reaction was so positive that she became a regular.
