Men In Trees (2006-2008) - Character: "Ben"
Abe takes another stab at getting out of the "ER" shadow in this series debuting in the Fall of 2006. The rough story could basically be said to be "Northern Exposure" in reverse. This time it's a relationship expert who goes to Alaska for a speaking engagement and finds that he world was not as perfect as she thought. So now stuck in Alaska she decides to start her life over again. I just hope that this show fairs better than "Sleepwalkers" did.
E.R. (1994-200?) - Character: "Jerry"
What can be said about this series....groundbreaking, funny, touching, gripping, exciting and I could go on. For a good portion of the 11 years ER has been on we have been watching "Jerry" run the front desk. Well that is when he's not dressed up in a kangaroo suit (see photo) or blowing it up with a rocket grenade. Abe took a 3 year break (1999-2002) from ER but is back through 2008.
Sleepwalkers (1997) - Character: "Vince Konfke"
Cancelled after only two episodes aired in North America (a few more episodes aired on the west coast), NBC never gave this one a chance to catch on with viewers. There is hope though. It is available on DVD from England (called "The Sleepwalker Project") but note that it only contains 3 of the 9 episodes, or phases, the German version contains 6 of the 9.
Parker Lewis Can't Lose (1990-1993) - Character: "Kubiac"
A loosely based spinoff of "Ferris Beuller's Day Off" this is the series that most people first met Abe. There was a Ferris series the same year but it flopped after 13 episodes while Parker lasted 73. Playing a fairly cliche' but loveable bully named Larry Kubiac (or "Kube" for short) this proved to be the perfect launch vehicle for Abe.
Guest Appearances
Criminal Minds (2005) episode 1.7 "The Fox" Character: "Frank Fielding"
Abe only has a small part in this episode but what a job he does! He's accused of killing his sister and her family. Abe's character is a bit on the slow side mentally so it comes as a major shock that first his sister and her family are dead and that second he's being accused of the murder.
Robot Chicken (2005) Various voices
This is basically a sketch comedy show like MAD-TV and the like but it uses action figures, claymation and other non-traditional methods. It's very twisted and funny.

Later he forces Stan into a production of "South Pacific".

Jimmy, Bud and Kelly's cousin. Jimmy was determined to find

In this episode, Roseanne sends everyone off to a Halloween party, but stays at home because she doesn't feel in the Halloween spirit. The ghosts of Halloween past, present and future come to visit.

Angel Street (1992) pilot episode version 1 Character: "Rufus"
Next to nothing is known about this version of the very short lived detective drama series. There were only 8 episodes were made, including two versions of the pilot but only 3 aired. Odds are this will never see the light of day again in any format. Oh well it would have been nice to see this one. I have heard that the pilot was turned into a movie but this will take some tracking down.
Blossom (1992) episode 2.22 "Whines and Misdemeanors" Character: "Francis"
Yet another cameo performance for Abraham in this episode that aired on 6 April 1992. Blossom lands herself in detention, where we find Abe as Francis, an "artistic type" (so we are told). Interestingly, Francis is also Kubiac's first name in "Parker Lewis Can't Lose".
Married ...with Children (1991) episode 6.1 "She's Having a Baby: Part 1" Character: "Baby"

R.J. tells Helen that the reason he told Roy that was because he really wanted to learn the cello, and that he doesn't have a crush on her because he's actually gay

Growing Pains (1990) episode 5.19 "Mike, the Teacher" Character: "Really Big Kid"

Abe stands up, desk still attached to his body, and waddles out of the classroom with the desk swinging as he walked.
