One of the more significant recurring characters was Sardo (Richard Dumont), owner of "Sardo's Magic Mansion" (a magic shop). He would often attempt to sell a character a "prized" item, rarely succeeding. He often had items in his shop that contained real properties of magic, yet did not know until it was revealed in the story. One of the most memorable recurring jokes in the series occurred when someone would address him as "Mr. Sardo". He would then get irritated and exclaim: "No 'mister'; accent on the 'doh'!" Although he rarely got what he wanted, he would often end up helping the characters, often intentionally. He appeared in Gary's stories
My Magic Store is called Real Magic. Before that, it was known as Magic Mansion. The epiosodes I have been in are:
The Tale of the Time Trap (2000)
The Tale of Oblivion (1999)
The Tale of a Door Unlocked (1996)
The Tale of Cutter's Treasure (1) (1994)
The Tale of Cutter's Treasure (2) (1994)
The Tale of the Carved Stone (1994)
The Tale of the Dark Dragon (1993)
The Tale of the Super Specs (1992)
Some of the items I have sold to people were:
-Super Specs. Yes I sold those to Weeds. I belive he gave them to his girlfriend on April Fools.
-A potion to make you cooler. I sold that to Keith, that didn't work out very well.
-A carved stone that would make you popular. Yeah, sold that to Alison. Well she made one friend I think.
-A Miniature door that made you see the future. Sold that to Justin and he got the girl! That was the only thing what I said about was ture!
Another recurring character was Dr. Vink (Aron Tager).
He was a physically imposing man who would often appear as a mad
scientist, sorcerer, and the like. He would also get his name
mispronounced. When this happened, he would respond "Vink. With a
va-va-va." Often, the protagonist would call him a "nutbag" behind his
back, assuming he could not hear him, only to have him reply later,
"...and I am not a nutbag." He appeared in Frank's stories.
Aron Tager also played the carnival worker who stands in front of the
Funhouse and invites people to go inside in "The Tale of the Laughing
in the Dark".
Dr. Vinks riddles:
"What is lighter than air, can be seen by the naked eye, and if put in a barrel, will make the barrel lighter?
Answer: A Hole.
"How far can you walk into the woods?".
Answer: Halfway. 'After that you would be walking out.'
In The First episode 'Tale Of Phantom Cab', Vink tells us about his Wild Boar Brain.
