The 10 Best Parks and Recreation Recurring Characters (Honorable Mentions)

Obviously there are way too many memorable characters in Pawnee. Here are the ones who barely missed the cut.
  1. CRAZY IRA & THE DOUCHE
    Shock jock radio show hosts often talking about boobs and fart Popsicles. Made Leslie do Bill Cosby impression in a kiddie pool filled with Jello, so they could take back things they said about Ann on air. Tom is a huge fan.
  2. ETHEL BEAVERS
    80+ year old court stenographer who works on the dreaded fourth floor. She's annoyed with most people though still goes out on dates and has them sleep over. April and Andy adopted Ethel as their grandmother.
  3. COUNCILMAN BILL DEXHART
    Seems like Dexhart is an a new sex scandal every week yet he never resigns and no one ever seems to care. His polling numbers go up each time a new scandal breaks. Once lied about building homes for the underprivileged but instead went to Brazil to have four way sex in a cave.
  4. JENNIFER BARKLEY
    Hired to managed Bobby Newton's campaign and doesn't seem to care about anything except the money. She's got lots of political connections in Washington and later gets Ben a job in DC. Her best moment was once bribing Leslie with Joe Biden's phone number (Leslie has an unhealthy obsession with Joe Biden).
  5. BRETT AND HARRIS FROM ANIMAL CONTROL
    The two stoner friends who somehow have had jobs at animal control for years. They often wonder who to call when there are animal problem in Pawnee. Brett once made a bird alarm clock like he saw on the Flintstones. Harris has been to over 400 Phish concerts and was the donor of the month at the local sperm bank.
