("Basketball")

Season 2

Packer's license plate

Packer's license plate is WLHUNG. It's a play on the phrase "Well Hung", however it is often misunderstood as a reference to William Hung. Packer has no idea who William Hung is and wonders why people always ask him if he's a William Hung fan. ("Sexual Harassment")

Michael tells a story of the two of them meeting twins and taking them back to a motel, where Packer had sex with both of them. ("Sexual Harassment")

Todd Packer is Michael's emergency contact. ("The Fight")

Packer is seen attending the Christmas Party. ("Christmas Party")

According to Michael, Packer used to sit at Dwight's desk while Michael sat at Jim's desk. ("The Carpet")

As a prank, Packer left an unidentified object with an atrocious smell in Michael's office, causing Michael to have to replace the carpet in his office. While the object was never fully identified and was only partially seen by the camera, it is commonly believed that it was human feces. ("The Carpet")

Season 3

Michael tells a story of a convention in Hartford at which he and Packer met a girl in a bar. Packer makes out with her, only to discover that her boyfriend is a bouncer at the bar. The bouncer chases them, and Packer manages to get away, leaving Michael behind to get beat up. ("The Convention")

After returning from a vacation with Jan Levinson in Jamaica, Michael calls Packer in Atlanta to brag about it. Packer doesn't believe him, so Michael attempts to email Packer a photo of Michael with Jan sunbathing topless at the resort. Unfortunately, Michael clicks on the wrong email address and instead of sending it to packer@dundermifflin.com, he sends it to packaging@dundermifflin.com, which leads to the photo being forwarded to staff and acquaintances all over the company. ("Back From Vacation")

It is Packer's idea for Michael to get a stripper for Bob Vance's bachelor party. Upon Michael's objections, based on sexual harassment grounds, he recommends that he hire a stripper for Phyllis' wedding shower as well. ("Ben Franklin")

Season 4

In a deleted scene Michael talks about how Packer asks if the carpet matches the drapes. ("Money")

Season 6

Packer is seen in clips from "Sexual Harassment." ("The Banker")

While celebrating St. Patrick's Day at Cooper's Seafood, Todd Packer calls Michael to convince him to join him (in his characteristically vulgar way). Eventually, most of the office employees meet there, and Meredith starts to hump him. ("St. Patrick's Day") This marked his first appearance in three years.

Packer calls Michael so he can tease him after he appears on television denying any problems with Sabre printers. ("Whistleblower")

Season 7

After hiring Danny Cordray as a Traveling Salesman, Michael said he forgot that they already had a Traveling Salesman, Packer. ("The Sting")

Packer shows up at the office Halloween party dressed as a pregnant nun. ("Costume Contest")

Packer appears as a drunk in a bar in Michael's movie, Threat Level Midnight. When Michael and the rest of the cast start dancing "The Scarn," Packer stands up and yells, "If doing the Scarn is gay, then I'm the biggest queer on Earth!" ("Threat Level Midnight")

After Michael gives Holly a glowing recommendation, Packer gets a full-time job in the Scranton branch, much to the dismay of the other employees. However, after Packer mocks Kevin's weight and insults his own daughter, Holly soon realizes that Packer has a horrible personality. Fed up with Packer's presence in the office, Jim and Dwight prank Packer into leaving Dunder Mifflin and transferring to Sabre's corporate headquarters in Tallahassee. When Michael discovers this, he intends to tell Packer and apologize on Jim and Dwight's behalf. However, Packer openly insults Holly and tries to tempt Michael into cheating on her. Angered by this, Michael decides to play along with Jim and Dwight's prank, congratulating Packer and letting him quit to head out to the nonexistent job offer. ("Todd Packer (episode)")

Season 8

In Tallahassee, Packer competes with Dwight for a vice president position. Nellie chooses Dwight. Shortly after, Robert California reveals to Jim that he is going to fire Dwight for Nellie's incompetence. Jim protects Dwight, and Packer is fired in his place, after 20 years at Dunder Mifflin-Sabre. ("Last Day in Florida")

Season 9

Todd returns to the Scranton branch claiming to be on step 8 of Alcoholics Anonymous and step 9 of Narcotics Anonymous. He apologizes to several people but includes veiled insults. He gives everyone cupcakes to which people seem ready to forgive him, but Pam prevents everyone from accepting them as she feels that Packer has been so mean to them that a cupcake should not win them over. Todd later talks to Clark and gives him a cupcake as well. Packer later leaves after everyone eats the cupcakes and reveals that he laced them all with various drugs, some legal and some illegal, as payback for his firing. He proudly tells the cameras this as he sits on his convertible (illegally parked in between a handicapped spot and a no-parking zone), his license plate reading "WLHUNG" still there, but instead of his usual red Corvette, he now drives a blue one.

Later, he drives to Philadelphia to give cupcakes to Daryl and Jim. ("The Farm")
