Mr. Plinkett

Harry S. Plinkett is a senile old man portrayed by Rich Evans and Mike Stoklasa for Redlettermedia, a YouTube film review channel. The character appears in two different continuities. Evans portrays him in Half in the Bag while Stoklasa portrays him (voice only) in Plinkett Reviews. The character achieved massive fame online for his series of reviews for the Star Wars prequels. Evans’ Plinkett is more of a confused and slightly off old man getting his VCR fixed by the Lightning Fast VCR Repair Men while Stoklasa’s is a full on serial killer pervert. Since Stoklasa’s Plinkett never appears on-screen, this guide will be based off of Evans’ version.
