Hi I was looking at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112056/characters/nm0567912?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t1 which is Michael McDonald listed as a MadTv member 1995-2016. I can't find an "Edit" link anywhere.. I'd like to add 1. that he played Dr. Phil, and 2. to add a little boy character, "Stuart" quote below that, ((Stuart (nicely first, high childish voice): Let me doooo ittt..! \n Stuart (evil manly lowered voice): Let me do it.)) Is it because I'm browsing on an Android mobile phone? I toggled to Chrome "desktop site" in my browser and even clicked Desktop mode link on the site too, but no go. Thanks in advance.

You have to start at the Mad TV Title page to edit info.

CliffJ thanks;

Ackk... Too difficult to figure out.

When I click [Edit Page] and choose both Cast and Quotes, a weird thing.. cast has only three (3) people listed out of the 1119+ that were featured on the show!
Conlon, Tim Various (1996-1998) 10
Francisco, Pablo (I) Various (1996-1997) 16
Totman, Brooke
I give up :(

I can get you through it. it is difficult the first time. It only takes me about 2 minutes per submission.
One is a character submission addition. the other is a quote submission for a character.
Let me know.
You should wait a few days after a character submission before you do a quote submission. You will have to wait for staff to approve the character.
Noticed a problem with the edit page. have started a string for this problem. We can still do this in a couple of days. Just add a comment. I'll watch this for you response.

I will pass. But very super kind of you to offer. The big edit would be to add that Michael McDonald played a parody character or caricature of Dr. Phil :) if someone would like to edit that in, and take the credit, by all means please do so! :) :)

  • This one was already in there

  • Dr. Phil : [while stuffing his maid's face with cake]  You're like a little Latino sponge, sucking up what you like to have.

    Dr. Phil : [looks into the camera]  What the frick? Is that a camera?

  • [draws a gun and shoots the camera]

Neat that those quotes are there, but if you Google "imdb MadTv" there's a main link for the main imdb page but also an auto categorical result below that, "Full cast and crew." If you click that (takes you to "Series Cast & Crew") and then click on, "Cast," you (or I on my Android Google Chrome, phone browser at least) arrive at:
https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0112056/fu...
Michael only has the following characters listed:

It won't let me copy paste so I screenshot it.

You would need to know which episodes he played that character end edit his character name for the episode. For most episodes it is listed as "Various".

Regarding browsing IMDb's desktop site on a phone, I can recommend the Opera Mini browser, which has a setting which lets you stay in desktop mode (I use iPhone, so I don't know if the Android version is the same).

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your post.

The character names listed are derived from the characters Michael McDonald has attached to episodes of the show, the list is too long to copy in all but here are some snippets:






If you'd like to add that he played Dr Phil, you will need to update the credit on the episode in question to include the character name - after some time, this will update on the quotes page you've listed.

You can update the character name by clicking Edit page listed at the bottom of the episode page. 

Have a great day!

Joel
