Hampton is the naysayer of the group. Whereas Win and Dud are positive peeps who want action all the time, Hampton would much rather be in bed with ocean sounds and a bowl of plain yogurt. Too bad it’s HIS JOB to keep an eye on his earthling adventure-pals. He tries to talk Winston and Dudley out of action before they hit warp speed but, not surprisingly, it NEVER works.
What Hampton lacks in smiles he makes up for in sarcasm. His tongue-in-cheek responses to Winston’s wants are always good for some BIG LAUGHS and character juxtaposition. The contrast between Dudley and Hampton, Win’s numbers 2 and 3, plays out like a modern day Laurel and Hardy sketch (but with more power wedgies). Hampton’s “no, no, no” plays perfectly off Dudley’s “duh, duh, go”.
