Dark Days In Television History
April 27, 1995: The first appearance of the David Puddy character on Seinfeld.
Nothing against Patrick Warburton. I was just watching a Seinfeld rerun tonight -- the face-painting episode -- and it finally dawned on me. The decline of Seinfeld's writing definitely coincided with the emergence of the Puddy character. By season seven it had stopped being a show about nothing and become a show about callousness, thus jumping the shark.

Hehe, they showed that same rerun (the Fusilli Jerry) here the other evening. I love Seinfeld reruns, I'll probably be watching them as long as they're on the air.
R u certifiable? Puddy's character was hilarious and gave Seinfeld a very needed breath of fresh air at that point. The face-painting episode is fucking classic.
I suggest buying season's 1 - 6 (and the rest when you can)....the show was always callous. "No hugging, no crying."
Looking forward to a spirited Puddy debate!
Hmmm, it's lunchtime...I'm thinking Arbys.
I'm with u blu. Seinfeld never jumped the shark, although the last episode was a bit lame.
Puddy? What is funnier than the episode where Elaine keeps paying off her bet to Jerry because she can't quit having sex with Puddy? She can say it. She just can't stop DOING it.
yup, the last episode did pretty much suck.
If true, the Devil jumped the shark.
If you want to see Warburton outside of Seinfeld, I recommend "The Dish", probably the best Aussie film I've ever seen. Watch what he does to his character, but also watch what Sam Neill does to his.
Why? Are they sheepherders?
If you must remember Patrick Warburton, please, remember him as the Tick.
I'm a firm believer that the term "jumped the shark," has...um...jumped the shark. So to speak. Also, if you must remember Patrick Warburton, please, remember him as Joe Swanson on Family Guy.
> Why? Are they sheepherders?
This shouldn't be the place to discuss your difficulty getting dates.
Easy shithead the ad hominum is a reach to far. How I stayed awake through The Dish I do not know. Leave the comedy to those who have wit.
He's also Brock Sampson on The Venture Brothers, the funniest show on Adult Swim.

Interesting. I both struck a nerve, and precipitated a response that was self-conflicting. This must be an example of the aforesaid wit.
