There was Newman the mailman, the Soup Nazi, and George Costanza's father played by Jerry Stiller.

There were those episodes, who's plot created catch phrases that are now used in American society, such as; "yada, yada, yada". There was a team of more than a dozen writers for the show. The living arrangements with Jerry Seinfeld and Cosmo Kramer was that they lived across the hall from each other.
