Scrubs 1x01 002

A janitor is someone who cleans up yer crap! They are also referred to as custodians, to make the job sound less undignified, and some douches have even taken to referring to them as custodial engineers. But this is a bunch of elitist hooey, as everyone knows a janitor's main function is to plunger a stopped up toilet in a public restroom after some dick chucks a condom into it. Most professional environments and public facilities hire janitors of some kind. They are usually dressed in khaki grey jumpers and can be seen slinging a mop bucket down a hallway. They smell of urine, disinfectant and cheap cigars.

In television, one of the most celebrated and yet, equally disturbing individuals to ever work as a janitor was a strange, tall man known only as The Janitor (though he sometimes addressed himself by the name Jan Itor). The Janitor was a recurring character on the NBC comedy series Scrubs. The Janitor was employed by Sacred Heart Hospital in California and took his job very seriously, which is to say, he had his own definition of his job duties, which usually involved taking long, extended breaks. The Janitor had equally offbeat relationships with most of the hospital staff - in particular a young intern named John "J.D." Dorian.

  • Actor Fred Tatasciore provided the voice of a janitor (as well as many other characters) in episodes of the animated sleuth series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. On the related series A Pup Named Scooby Doo, there was a janitor from Coolsville Junior High School named Gus, who was also an inventor who had a deep fondness for the bespectacled Velma. In Scooby-Doo! Haunted Holidays, there was a janitor character named Clete, who was voiced by Carlos Alazaraqui.

Notes Edit

  • Custodian is another term for janitor. Custodian redirects to this page.
