Trivia

Helga, the psycho carpet cleaner, was originally suppose to be a preppy, goody-goody type of character. After she was cast as Helga, Ashley Fowler showed up to the set with an idea for her character. She was dressed in goth and sported a horrible Russian accent. Axmaker and the rest of the cast and crew quickly came to the conclusion, this was Helga. See more »
