    Trivia

    Bunifa always hated being called by just Bunifa

    Though Bunifa's first sketch was the season 1 Homegirl Surgeons, many MADtv fans don't consider this the first one because "it's not the Bunifa we know and love" due to the fact that she did not have the same additude as Bunifa in later seasons.

    This was Debra Wilson's most recurring chracter.

Default for her bio (not catchphrase)...

From episode 413 where Phil LaMarr is on a blind dinner date with Bunifa:

Phil: Bunifa, that's an interesting name.

Bunifa: It's African, it means the first and the fifteenth.

She said this same exact thing in 421 Open: Bunifa

Wasn't bunifa in the first season when she was in the hospital with guest star Kim Coles. And shouldn't it be added that Aries was the voice of Sonya? Just curious.

I was gonna bring this up earlier, but now that someone else has, I guess I'll say that...

Even though it isn't the same Bunifa, I think that in the guide here it should be noted that a very different version of Bunifa appeared in that season 1 episode, just don't list it or count it as an appearance.

I don't know about that...they were way too different to even be considered as the same character (besides the name, of course). But that's just my opinion

I realize that, but because of the namesake, it should at least be noted so that we don't get more questions about that sketch. That way, no one will have to ask where it is, because it has happened several times before. It'll make it easier on all of us.

I watched my Bunifa last night and took notes....

Stuff to add to her bio: She's from Hawthorne California. She's always broke. Her best friend is Sonya who drives a tow truck. When she's feelin' it, she wears strawberry champaign and fudge body splash. She also wears nipple rings and a belly ring. She likes movies that you can talk through, All My Children, "scrimps" with ketchup and mayonnaise, Sizzler, Red Lobster, avacado, catfish and Popeye's on biscuit night. She describes herself as friendly, outgoing and easy to get along with, but is anything but easy to get along with.

Memorable Quotes:
"You white boys can call me too, cause like as far as I'm concerned, vanilla and chocolate still make chocolate."

Catchphrases:
"Hello, Sonya!"
"You so nice"
"shoot"
"What you need to do is..."
"I'm sorry"
"Cause I'm black ... well, let me tell you something..."

question...I was watching Season 1 and Bunifa was in an episode with some special guest star. It was toward the end of the episode! She was a doctor..........but it wasn't the Bunifa we all know, but Debra introduced herself as Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Jackson. It was epsidoe 17, or 18 I think.

wow, sorry after reading that i guess it wasn't that clear. I was just wondering if it should be added that BUnifa first appeared in season 1.

No, because that particular bunifa was a totally different character that just happened to have the same name......

I would like to bring up the first Bunifa appearance again. I think that the first appearance of Bunifa was in episode 117, but it is not mentioned here because some people say that it is "not the Bunifa we all know and love". I disagree, the woman seems very Bunifa like. Maybe not the Bunifa from season 4 on, but maybe something happened to Bunifa that had caused a change that turned her into the Bunifa "we all know and love". This would be like saying that Will Sasso's Kenny Rodgers impressions in the early times does not count because "it was not the drunk, angry Kenny we all know and love". I want to add the first Bunifa on here. If I do not get a response I will add it.

i agree with this.....I decided not to argue way back when, when I originally talked about it, but i'm glad someone else agrees!

Yeah. Scorp says that it was a completely different character, but it's not like her name was John Doe, Mary Beth Parker, or some type of common name. What are the chances that 2 characters would be named Bunifa Latifah Halifah Sharifa Jackson? I will put it up in 24 hours unless I hear a rebuddle.
