Emmitt Nervend is a character who frequently appears in the background, as sort of a deranged version of "Where's Waldo?" He wears a suit, his hair stands on end as if he has just been electrocuted, and he perpetually has a tremendous smile on his face. Generally he looks the same in all of his appearances, and is rarely animated.

The credits in the first season included a gag credit for Emmitt each episode, as well as a credit instructing the viewer how many times Emmitt could be found in the episode. Both practices were abandoned in season 2, but Emmitt continued to appear.

Trivia Edit

  • Emmitt originated as a sketch by first season producer Mitch Schauer. Tom Ruegger saw it hanging in Schauer's office and asked to use the character on the show.[3] At Freak-a-Con 2018, Schauer described Nervend as being "on the verge of being a serial killer or having a nervous breakdown."
