In addition to his unseen wife Martha, George had a neighbor in Los Angeles named Mr. Beasley, who is never seen in Mathnet shows. However, Mr. Beasley appears in cartoon form in the Square One Television (1987) segments with Dirk Niblick, another mathematical detective. The animated Beasley often talks about his unseen neighbor George Frankly, and is voiced by Bob Arbogast, who makes a guest role in Mathnet: The Case of the Missing Air (1988) as radio host Byle Dupe, of whom Mr. Beasley is said to be a fan.

He spent the next 20 years in rock 'n roll... he piles rocks and he eats rolls.

Lord I miss "Mathnet". I first saw it on PBS as part of "Square One TV". Probably the reason I got into computer science and cop shows. The show was (unlike some of the crap on afternoon TV today) genuinely funny, entertaining, and educational.
Of course I didn't get all the in-jokes until I was much older- the whole play on "Dragnet", the criminal brothers Karamazov, George and Martha, and the CAR-RT SORT company...
I only wish today's kids TV has something like "Mathnet". Alas...
