Community: You'll Never Get 100% On This Dean Pelton Quiz!

Community has made it to Netflix and the Dean Deanie is back with a vengeance.

Sony Pictures Television

Across six seasons (and, as of yet, no movie), Community has brought to life a diverse cast of characters who we have found cause to love, hate and admire - from Abed to Magnitude, Jeff Winger to SeƱor Chang. But if there's one character that truly embodies the spirit of Greendale Community College, it is the dedicated, fun-loving Dean Pelton.

He may look like your run of the mill, mundean school administrator, with his signature short-sleeve shirt and tie, black framed glasses and bald head, but nothing could be farther from the truth. A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, tied by a rainbow-coloured bow and iced with a sweet and spicy topping, Dean Craig Pelton is truly undefinable.

Sporting an ambiguous sexuality and open fetish for a certain breed of dog, he wears his eccentric personality on his ever-changing, costumed sleeve. His school pride is second to none and backed by an inferiority complex that means he is always striving to attain the college's next big success, whether it is space programs, large sandwich chain endorsements or statues of Luis Guzman.

Sharpen your pencils and sit up straight, it's exam time at the dean's office.

Oh, man, this got Sorkin-y.
