Seinfeld Characters & Their How I Met Your Mother Counterparts

Aside from the fact that Seinfeld‘s Dr. Tim Whatley and HIMYM‘s Hammond Druthers were played by the actor, Bryan Cranston, both characters bear striking similarities to each other. Whilst Whatley was a dentist and Druthers, an architect, both of these Cranston characters worked higher-skilled jobs on their respective shows.

Tim didn’t care much for Jerry and would occasionally make things difficult for him. He prolonged a painful dental procedure on Jerry in “The Yada Yada,” and in another instance in “The Mom & Pop Store” invited all of his friends but Jerry to his party. His HIMYM counterpart, Hammond, was just as arrogant, obnoxious, and self-serving as Whatley. As the head of Ted’s architectural firm, Hammond was a toxic boss who made his employees’ lives miserable without a care in the world.

Nana – Rita Aldrin

Jerry Seinfeld’s Nana, who features in one of the most wholesome family moments in Seinfeld, finds her ideal counterpart in Lily’s paternal grandmother, Nina Aldrin. Both Nana and Rita are sentimental people who use gifts to express affection for their grandchildren.

In Seinfeld‘s “The Pledge Drive,” Jerry reveals Nana sends him a birthday card every year with a $10 dollar check enclosed inside. Similarly, her HIMYM counterpart, Rita, gifts her favorite granddaughter, Lily her house in the suburbs before moving to Florida in season 7. All in all, Nana and Rita are fan-favorite grandmothers who know how to treat their younger ones with love, and affection.

Frank Costanza – Robin Charles Scherbatsky Sr.

Seinfeld’s low-key villain, Frank Costanza lines up with HIMYM‘s low-key villain and Robin’s father, Robin Charles Scherbatsky Sr. for numerous reasons.

For starters, both men were unloving, emotionally-absent fathers to George and Robin. Frank pushed the alternate holiday to Christmas, aka, the Festivus on George, and forced him to rumble in the middle of their living room as a child and as an adult. His irascible HIMYM match, Robin Scherbatsky Sr. exerted a lifelong toll on Robin by forcing her to learn activities she didn’t want to. She desired his approval and affection all along but he never came around.

Morty Seinfeld – Marshall Eriksen

Morty Seinfeld is amicable, loving, and caring like his HIMYM counterpart Marshall Eriksen. Both men provide love and a stable structure to their families. Morty was a loving husband to Helen, he checked up on his son, Jerry regularly and often visited him in NYC.

Though Marshall comes from a younger generation, regardless, he had strong family values and was a loving husband to Lily. He was particularly close to his dad, Marvin Eriksen Sr., and strived to emulate his good qualities all throughout. Marshall named his newborn boy after his deceased dad, and just like that another wholesome father-son relationship on HIMYM was set in motion.

Joe Davola – Blah Blah

Joe Davola gave Jerry the creeps every time he ran into him. First seen in “The Pitch,” Joe the writer instantly induced fear in Jerry and later threatened to “kibosh” him. Davola also knocked Kramer to the ground after finding out he wasn’t invited to his party.

Davola finds his HIMYM counterpart in none other than the one-off character, and Ted’s ex, Blah Blah who was actually named, Carol. She and Davola both gave off a scary, dark vibe. The counterparts tried their best to make their company uncomfortable, going as far as yelling, paying backhanded compliments, and threatening them.

Cosmo Kramer – Barney Stinson

The master of physical comedy, known for his funniest entrances on Seinfeld, Kramer, lines up with Barney who too loved to make an entrance. Both Kramer and Barney stood out because of their unconventional lifestyles that sometimes worked out and sometimes backfired in their faces.

Whilst Kramer largely sustained himself by living off of Jerry, Barney was the richest character in HIMYM. Regardless, Kramer and Barney loved adventures and the uproarious NYC neighborhoods, and both were stand-out comedic relief in already funny shows.

Elaine Benes – Robin Scherbatsky

Elaine Benes’ traits closely match Robin Scherbatsky’s. They both were career-oriented, smart, intelligent, well-read, and well-informed women who stood their ground even when people opposed them.

Elaine was emotionally closed off like Robin and too faced difficulty creating and maintaining personal relationships. She frequently shoved people, going as far as fighting George’s father, Frank in “The Little Kicks.” Robin too had a penchant for violence. She’d throw chairs on people, and got court-mandated therapy for assaulting a woman in “The Stinson Missile Crisis.”

Jerry Seinfeld is a man of many flaws just like his HIMYM counterpart, Ted Mosby. Both men play realistic leads with flaws, quirks, and virtues. Ted, for example, constantly derided Barney for his childlike enthusiasm and his obsessive need to correct others irked every single one of his friends. Jerry cranks up his anti-hero traits up a notch with his neurotic dating habits and self-serving behavior.

That said, both Ted and Jerry care deeply for their friends and would sometimes go out of their way to show their love. Jerry let Kramer eat out of his fridge, and let him temporarily move into his place in “The Chicken Roaster.” Some of Ted’s selfless acts include lighting up the apartment for Robin to cheer her up in “Symphony of Illumination” and leaving his place to Lily and Marshall in “Karma.”
