If anyone could make a demon likable, it's Ted! We first met the actor on the '80s sitcom, Cheers, and then laughed along with him on The Good Place. Those who have worked with him have nothing but good things to say, like when co-star Kristen Bell called him a "national treasure."

The fact that the late actor is still so missed is a testament to how great he really was. When Lisa Jakub, who played Lydia in Mrs. Doubtfire, was kicked out of school for missing school due to filming, Robin went out of his way to write a letter to the school, asking them to take her back.
