In my opinion, I think that bandleader Phil Harris was the funniest of the group. The way he was portrayed as an alcoholic, self-centered, and vain man really contrasts to the others and makes him stand out in a special way. "Hellllooo Libby," to me, will always be his trademark, as well as the way he called Jack "Jackson" when no one else did.
