A Tribute to Seinfeld’s David Puddy


David Puddy is Elaine Benes’s on-again, off-again boyfriend on NBC’s Seinfeld. Played expertly by Patrick Warburton, Puddy is the quintessential dude: a mechanic, a face-painting sports fanatic, and a high-fiver. Puddy’s vibe is also apparent in other Warburton characters, such as Joe Swanson on Fox’s Family Guy and Ken in Jerry Seinfeld’s animated film Bee Movie.

Puddy appears in two episodes in season 6 and nine in season 9.

Now let’s pay tribute to the comedic phenomenon that is David Puddy.
