** Having been partly inspired by Creator/GrouchoMarx, Yakko gives off some Jewish vibes too, especially considering his name sounds like it was derived from "Yakov", a common Hebrew variant of Jacob. His siblings, however, don't really seem Jewish.



* Harley Quinn, the [[ComicBook/TheJoker Joker's]] moll on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', always seemed vaguely Jewish with her quirky personality and [[MostAnnoyingSound "fingernails-on-a-chalkboard" screechy voice]]. Then the beans were spilled when Harley was asked why she liked Christmas trees so much if she was Jewish. Later in that same story, Harley shouted "Happy Hanukkah, chump!" when attacking Batman. The Joker himself spouts the odd Yiddish phrase, but this is probably either by association with Harley or due to his background in show business - or maybe, once again, it's just Big Applesauce. It was recently revealed that Harley is half-Jewish and half-Catholic.

* A couple of the ''Film/CarryOn'' characters could've been Jewish. Some of the jokes in the dialog are based on Cockney [[note]]The East-End of London at the [[TheFifties time]] [[TheSixties of the]] [[TheSeventies films]] had large Jewish communities[[/note]] and Yiddish play-on words. Characters themselves sometimes showed a couple of Jewish stereotypes: in ''Film/CarryOnMatron'', Creator/KennethWilliams was a worrying hypochondriac and was even nicknamed "the rabbi" in a fit of rage from one of his employees, whereas in ''Film/CarryOnCamping'' Creator/SidJames and Creator/BernardBresslaw (who were both Jewish in real life) were dating Creator/JoanSims and Dilys Laye -- the latter having a [[JewishMother moaning mother]] (portrayed by a Jewish actress) -- and the two women constantly [[JewishComplaining moaned]] about their boyfriends' foolish antics throughout the movie, leading into loads of [[JewsLoveToArgue arguments]].

* In ''Series/{{Friends}}'' Rachel Green is implied, but never stated, to be Jewish; in one episode, she refers to her grandmother with the Yiddish term "bubbe."

* In ''Series/{{Friends}}'' Rachel Green is implied, but never stated, to be Jewish; in one episode, she refers to her grandmother with the Yiddish term "bubbe."" In another episode, when Phoebe is writing a holiday song, she tries the line "spin the dreidel, Rachel"; Rachel's only objection is that this doesn't rhyme.
