First would be Bob Golic as the toughest and possibly oldest RA in the history of college on Saved by the Bell: The College Years. Golic sported a lengthy mullet and painted on acid washed jeans. I didn't watch this show nearly as much as the original Saved by the Bell, but I just remember Golic always popping in to the massive apartment Zach had after some hijinks had ensued, giving Zach the old "Why I oughtta!" face and then cue the laugh track. Surprisingly, this show didn't last terribly long.
Secondly would be Alex Karras on Webster. For anyone who has seen "Blazing Saddles," Karras starred as Mongo and is most known for laying out a parked horse with one punch. After that he grew a sweet mustache and served as George Papadopoulos, the father of the adopted Webster on Webster. In this role, George would laugh at Webster's antics, teach life lessons, and install a secret passageway behind a grandfather clock designed for miniature children to use.
The last was more of a cameo, as Ed "Too Tall" Jones appeared on an episode of Different Strokes (video here) where Arnold pretends to be a magician. Jones displayed a tight sweater vest and an even better command of the English language.
Clearly, Strahan has some huge shoes to fill.
