The character of Tim Whatley was introduced in 6:8 The Mom-and-Pop Store and the powers that be decided that he should come back a few more times, but that they should be random in nature. This excellently crafted character was done so by an auteur so humble that he refuses to get credit in 6:19 The Jimmy. This master craftsman is known as the father in Malcolm in the Middle and was born with the name Bryan Cranston.
Whatley was a student of Mickey Abbott's dad in dental school. He was born Catholic, but converts to Judaism. Jerry thinks he did it for the jokes, but I disagree. I think Whatley converted wholeheartedly, as he studied and learned about Judaism and Jewish History. Atleast enough to know more than Jerry. Before becoming a Jew, he experimented sexually with his and Dr. Cessman's dental assts., not to mention their patients. He has Penthouse available to read for those patients and then bans seeing kids, which the K-Man likes b/c he lets the expletives fly. His personal priest, one Father Curtis, who's supposedly a good guy, got his wisdom teeth removed by Whatley b/4 officiating at Mickey's 4th hitching. He doesn't charge Elaine so much as a merchant services fee for work on her teeth and receives a broken Baby Label Maker Baby for it. He should feel privileged to get an angry name from Jerry and has a Chanukah party where Jer meets Tommy Lee Jones, Elaine loses her free sub and maybe a Captain's hat to a Kid in the Hall, and George finishes a tray of kosher cocktail weenies. He has a good friend he went to dental school with who had an '89 LeBaron convertible which George ended up buying.
One thing can be said in all honesty about Tim Whatley, DDS, he looks good whether sporting a beard or going smooth like a seal.

Tim Whatley - 6:12 The Label Maker
In 8:19 The Yada Yada, Whatley correctly states that the Jewish people have lived for 3,000 years, yet Jerry corrects him incorrectly and says itís 5,000.
