* ''TheAdventuresOfSuperman'', owing to its shoestring budget, did this all the time. On any given episode, you could expect the [[MonsterOfTheWeek mob-boss of the week]] to be played by one of about a dozen guys.

** Robert Llewellyn, who plays Kryten, later appeared as robot salesman Jim Reaper. As Kryten is a [[RubberForeheadAlien rubber forehead mechanoid]] with a funny voice, this might not have been so noticeable if he didn't later appear sans mask when Kryten got turned into a human. Later still, he appeared as "the Data Doctor."

**In ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo,'' we meet a drag racer named Robert in episode 7, and way down the line in episode 42, Ashley and Cassie would compete for the affections of a new student named Bobby. They were played by the same actor, and it's really unclear whether or not they were intended to be the same guy.
