#neverforget Australia Edition: Toadie "Toadfish" Rebecchi

2 be Toadie.

If you are human, saying the words "Toadie Toadfish Rebecchi" should bring a smile to your face and a single tear to your eye, so special is the place he holds in all our hearts. A gentle and kind man, Toadie (aka Jarod Vincenzo Rebecchi aka Ryan Moloney IRL) is a guy we'd happily wed and one who will never ever leave our memories.

As part of a new project called #neverforget, we'd like to celebrate the things that make us human, the special stories and people that we hold dear. What better place to start this adventure than with iconic Aussie bloke Toadie? 

Toads is currently celebrating his 20th year on Ramsay St as we celebrate the existence of this GIF.

Toadie's mullet remains the pinnacle of long curly mullets, a trend that continues to inspire ~ironic~ Facebook event photos to this day. 

In a cruel turn of events, Toadie tragically lost the mullet, but he handled it with grace and style.
It's impossible to reflect on Toadie's lasting impact without mentioning his young cousin Wayne Terrance "Tadpole" Reeves and brother Kevin "Stonefish" Rebecchi. Bravo to the writers for carrying this amphibious theme through the show's 31 seasons, pool and all! 

Another highlight of Toadie's career is this very real (note: definitely fake) interview in which he confesses, "Mate, completely different. Look, I understand Toadie is a memorable character, and I've been on that show for a long time. But really, it's just a show, and I'm a real person. I have a real name for Pete's sake! I'm sick of it! Do you know what happens when you Wikipedia my character's name? It's longer than my real page! I'm fucking sick of this shit. It's not my real name!"

Why does this have only 90 views, why?

Never forget Toadie "Toadfish" Rebecchi.
