15 Unseen TV Characters: Ugly Naked Guy, Mrs. Columbo, Etc. (VIDEO)

TV shows love using characters we're never meant to see. They're the spouses, bosses, lovers, and enemies of our main characters -- called repeatedly on the phone, or visually hinted at from behind a big chair. These guys are handy. We don't know what they look like, how they dress, or whether their apartments are fancy or not, which usually makes them the most believable characters in a fantasy world of material porn.

So it's about time some mashup wizard helped us pay our respects, and the wizards of Mewlists have done just that. We've posted their effort below -- a countdown of the top 15 unseen characters from shows old and new. Take a walk down faceless memory lane with the likes of Juanita and Wilson waving hi.
