    Important characters who never appear

    We may have done this before:

    I’m watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, one of the great 80’s comedies about well-off white kids, and it occurs to me that Cameron’s strained relationships with his materialistic parents explains a lot about his character and, to some extent, Ferris too insofar as they serve as models of the kind of adults he does not want to become. But neither of Cameron’s parents are in the film.

    Cheers had Norm’s wife Vera

    In Frazier, I don’t think Niles wife appears ever.

    I only saw it a few times, but Charlie never appears on Charlie’s Angels

    Godot never turns up in Waiting for Godot

    Romeo’a ex Rosaline doesn’t appear in Romeo & Juliet

                      Monkey Harris in Only Fools is never seen but referred to from very early on right up to Time on Our Hands.

                        In Seinfeld, Kramer always seems to list various randos who never appear on screen. Lomax is one of them.

                        Howard Wolowitz's mom on The Big Bang Theory was a voice only character.

                        Arguably, Norman Bates's mother.

                              This was the only time Mrs Wolowitz appeared on screen:

                                Usually Bob Sacamano.

                                I don't think Cousin Jeffrey has been seen either.

                                  Won Ton. Everyone in Darkplace Hospital was in fear of him.

                                    Nope. Both unseen characters according to the Seinfeld wiki.

                                        Thank you, Snake, I had never heard of this before. The story of the producers' attempts to keep the misconceived series alive by completely abandoning its premise is highly amusing.

                                            The General in Dastardly & Muttley.

                                            The little red-haired girl in Peanuts. (Until ruined by that recent movie.)
