The Drew Carey Show

The Drew Carey Show/ABC/1995-2004 (Little Person)

Doreen (Debbie Lee Carrington), a feisty little person who works at the Winfred-Louder Department store in Cleveland, Ohio. At the store, Doreen admired coworker Mimi Bobeck (Kathy Kinney) and began to act and dress like her. Because she was smaller version of Bobeck, Doreen was called  “Mini Mimi.”


Doreen cheered the larger Mimi when she insulted Drew Carey, the Asst. Director of Personnel with such barbs as “Bite me, Doughboy” and “Shut up, Pig!”

“One of these days, I’m going to bite you and I’m going to get very, very sick.” – Drew to Mimi

The Doreen character debuted on the first episode of Season 5 “Y2K, You’re Okay” (September 22, 1999) and made three more appearances on the show.
