'90s sitcom redheads?
September 27, 2013 2:10 PM   Subscribe

Help me brainstorm a list of red-headed sitcom characters from the 1990s.

I've been invited to a '90s sitcom dress-up party. I'd like some help thinking of potential characters to choose from. I'm a woman with red hair, and not much time to plan a costume.

My sitcom memories aren't strong, and neither is my '90s nostaglia, so any help would be appreciated!

Beth from NewsRadio. (Who wore all kinds of crazy outfits, so you could wear just about anything.)

Vicki from Suddenly Susan.

Zoey from Cybill.

Angela Chase, My So-Called Life. Although it's not red, "It's Crimson Glow." (And yeah: not a sitcom, but still: BEST COSTUME EVER!)

Peg Bundy from Married With Children? Bonus for being able to wear something outragous. All you need is a can of Aqua Net!

Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Not quite a sitcom, but not quite not, either.

Does an animated character count? Pepper Ann Pearson is one of my favorite '90s redheads.

Veanne Cox's Toby character on Seinfeld was AWESOME (that was the "pinky toe" episode)

Not a sitcom really, but Scully from the X-Files! That's who I am this year, assuming I can find an appropriately ill-fitting beige suit.

Connie Britton's character in the early seasons of Spin City, though there wasn't anything especially memorable about her other than "being Connie Britton."

Pete (Mike Maronna) from Pete & Pete (as well as younger Pete). Also remembered as Stuart from the Ameritrade ads (and the "Final Days" Clinton video). He didn't keep acting; he's now working in the industry as a best boy (electrician), such as on Elementary.
Uh, if a guy costume is okay. I'm tired but this leapt to mind from the title.

In this one Seinfeld episode, you have three red-headed "characters" to choose from, Sally Weaver, Estelle Costanza, and my personal favorite, "The Doll". If your hair is short, and if you can find the right ugly blue housedress, I think the doll would get a lot of laughs.
