1) Definitely Stuart. Classic.
2) Can I put the Sesame Street characters together as one? If not, just Sally
3) Coach Hines
4) Disney Girl

There are too many great characters to put on there. But most I never watched, so...

Gimme Crista or gimme nothing!

Stuart (Michael McDonald): Come on, this should be at the top of everyones list.

Coach Hines (Keegan-Michael Key): The early versions were ok, but when Yaminashi came along, that is when the sketches found there greatness.

Vancome Lady Nicole Sullivan): Has the most character of any character I feel. I believe she says what most of us can't say at certain moment

Disney Girl (Nicole Parker): It shows both her singing, and comedy skills. I hope she does another one before she leaves.

Trina (Mo Collins): I can't really explain why I like this one, I just always felt that out of all the character Mo Collins did a lot, this one had the most substance.


Rise from the Dead!

So Many! This will be hard:

1) Vancome Lady - All Time Best Character
2) Stuart and Doreen Larkin - Best Comedy Duo
3) Ms. Swan - Alex Borestien is amazing, and is incrediably talented, and this character always makes me laugh.
4) Dot - Stephanie is another one who is amazing, I love all of her characters but this one stands on top of all the rest!
5) Dixie Wetsworth - THIS IS CABANA CHAT! Mary Scheer left the show way to early. She was one of the best cast members ever, and Cabana Chat is still one of my favorite recurring sketches on the show.

________________________________________________________________ ________
5 1/2) Darlene McBride - I can't pick just 5...sorry....Darlene McBride is one of the funniest things to ever happen to Mad Tv! We need more of her!

Other Favs high on the list:
Yvoone Criddle, Disney Girl, Two Litre Beth, Shaunda, Angela, Bunifa, and Tovah McQueen & Belma Buttons.

Ones I would like to see more of from the current cast:
Disney Girl, Wendy Walker, & Tori McLachlan

I love Nicole Sullivan, Alex Borestien, Mo Collins, Debra Wilson, Nicole Parker, Danielle Gaither, Paul Vogt, and Mary Scheer.

- "He looka lika man." - Bunny Swan
-"This has been Cabana Chat, and this AHH AHH AHHHHHH is Dixie Wetsworth!" -Dixie Wetsworth, Cabana Chat
-"Tcha...ya know what? Huh-uh!" - The Vancome Lady
-"You're so sexy!" - 2-Litre Beth
-"Look how little my gloves are!" - Dot Goddard
-"Sit your ass on down for a big ol' slice of truth, and a side of wisdom" - Tovah McQueen
-"Look what I can do!" ~ Stuart

This is very hard to me because really like all characters but only will mention without repeating casts member:

5.- Vancome Lady: The first seasons of Vancome Lady are good but not so great until after season four,I like the fun fact of a parody of a Lancome saleswoman (I would like to have seen more skits where reference is made ​​to the fact of working in a department store),a fresh and bold character among many insipid characters of the first seasons.

4.- Bunifa Latifah Halifah Sharifa Jackson: She has the essence of Debra in many aspects,and also his last sketches are the best,its a shame I would have liked to see would have been how as her character had developed (if not for that she left the show).

3.- Dot:IMHO This is the most sad character of the whole show that that give a shame and heartache,everyime when i see a skit of Dot I have that feeling (especially in the firsts ones) but that sadness is what makes me I like her (yes sounds strange),but anyway a sparkling and bright/hilarious child.

2.- Trina: The most bizarre,odd but also underrated and overlooked character of Madtv,I love her misadventures and history in search of love/family,I really would have liked to see her again after her last appearance in season 9,miss her!.

1.- Marvin Tikvah: To me its very difficult to choose only one Michael character in the first place,for me all are in the first spot but I choose Marvin because its IMO the most complex and labored of all Madtv characters and somehow is not the typical or generic character,and for Michel this one its out from his comfort zone (and if I am not mistaken this was not created in Groundlings).

1. Miss Swan probably my fave. Because she looks like a woman.
2. Bunifa Latifa Halifa Sharifa Jackson because she is good at surgery and yelling OH MA GAHHHHHHHHD.
3. Lida & Melina are 3rd. Oh ma gah! Are they lesbian-a? Not really, but they are good at destroying security cam
4. Dixie from Cabana Chat, she has funniest voice I ever heard.
5. Michael McCloud & Jasmine Wayne (x2), I really love their love song. I really love their love song. I really love their love song. The song I love in my life. Their song I love is lovely. Their song I love in my life. Their lovely song in my live. Theirrrr lovely song in my lifeeeeeeeeeee....
