When Bob Odenkirk perfectly played Charles Manson

Well before Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul (and even Mr. Show), Bob Odenkirk showed his comedic chops by playing Charles Manson on the short-lived 1990s TV sketch series The Ben Stiller Show.

In two of the skits, he plays the madman as a sort of incarcerated "Heloise" in "Ask Manson." In them, he answers questions on stain removal and car troubles.

The third one takes a different, and completely inspired, turn. It's Manson as Lassie and it's one of my all-time favorites.

I won't say anymore, just watch:
