This compound word is full of words.

You might say it is made up of 2 words and you would be right. But the first of the 2 words is also a compound word!

You might say it is made up of 3 consecutive words ( I just said that)

You might say it is made up of 4 consecutive words and again you will be right.

Then you will say that the first and the last of those 4 words when put together is an english surname. Heard in a famous sitcom.

Any guess?

A possibility is

Newspaperman

Made up of 2 words - the first of the 2 words is also a compound word, 3 consecutive words & 4 consecutive words

Newspaper (news + paper) + man = New + spa + per + man

An english surname. Heard in a famous sitcom.

Seinfeld when being foiled by his antagonist Newman.
