Well, of course, a lot of these guys were playing very different kinds of Mustard. But, attempting to calibrate for all other things being equal, I like Covell. When I think of a toffee-nosed soldier, he's about what I imagine.

I went for John Standing, although Walter Covell would be second. For me, David Robb was the best of the TV Mustards. I've said it before, that I wish the Xmas cast had gotten a full series.

Walter Covell wins for me. He did the most Colonel Mustard modeling and brought him the voice that fits.

I believe he played Colonel Mustard on the 1972 box as well as the puzzle series and thus the 1996 version.

Did he really do the most modelling? Sure, he looks similar, but I never seen anywhere that proves it is him. Confused

I thought the puzzle series and vcr games were confirmed but the 1972 one was up for speculation.

I've always thought the goofier puzzle series shots mimic his mannerisms from Murder in Disguise. Of course, it could be a great model impersonating him.

ok so I was totally between David Robb, Michael Jayston, and John Standing. I think it just kinda depends on what you're going for. I think they all, for the most part, were quite good. But those three definitely had the look and character down I think.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Walter Covell's performance. The VCR games still crack me up to this day.

I'm afraid to say that there is another one we need to add to the list of Cluedo suspects who have passed away. Leslie Grantham has passed away https://twitter.com/i/moments/1007592347717259264

I've always thought David Robb resembled 1986 Mustard, who was my first Colonel Mustard. Smile

Too bad he didn't get a full season. I would have loved to see his acting range as the Colonel.

OH! I do want to give a shout out to the Australian series Mustard, George Mallaby. I thought he gave a nice performance. Sometimes it could be similar in camp to Walter Covell, but I thought he had a great look for Mike Mustard.

Walter Covell is THE Col. Mustard. He embodies the very essence of everything Mustard stands for. In the interviews of him, he seems like he can preform as Mustard for birthday parties. Martin Mull was an excellent actor for Mustard as well, showing the corrupt side. Also, the person who played him in the first season of Cluedo did a very good job of converting him to the modernness of the 1990s, while the others in the later seasons seemed like they stayed true to the original man in 1949.
