It used to be that Kramer from Seinfeld (1989) was the gold standard for characters with one name. When we found out Kramer was his last name and his first name was Cosmo. With that great mystery solved, let's tackle the next one! Which of these one-named TV characters are you most curious to know their full name?

Great suggestion, if you do a movie version. I have always been intrigued by Tom Hanks's directorial debut, That Thing You Do! (1996). One of the main characters name  isn't used once in the entire movie: Ethan Embry ... The Bass Player and is listed in the end of movie credits as I think as T. B. Player.

Will Tolen and Oswald,

Only the author of a list can edit a list. Sadly, Jen has not been active on IMDb or Get Satisfaction since December 2018. Let's hope she returns so she may consider your suggested inclusion in her poll suggestion.
