    Hi Diane

    Glad to see you're up to posting. Beginning with the last picture, I think
    the actor is Alan Young. The robot is Robby, and I'm pretty sure I
    posted about him in one of our other games. Robby first appeared
    in the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. He was used in numerous other
    films and TV shows. Often with a minor change in his appearance.

    Picture no. 5 shows Ken Curtis on the left. Ken played a deputy
    of Marshall Dillon in Dodge City, Kansas. Earlier Ken was a big band
    singer and a member of the Sons of the Pioneers. Nice voice. You
    can hear him sing on Youtube. On the right is Milburn Stone as Doc.

    The program is Gunsmoke which I first heard in a car when it was a
    radio show. The TV show ran for 20 years which was a record until
    the Simpsons showed up. I believe the Simpsons have been on TV
    for about 40 years.

    I'll leave the rest for some of our other contestants. I know lots
    of folks want a chance to win a cool prize like 40 cases of
    Campbell's high sodium soup or a lifetime supply of Prell shampoo.

    Do they still make Prell? I may give it a try! :)

    !. The dog's name is Tramp, the show is My Three Sons.

    2. The City is Cape Canaveral FL. The show is I Dream of Jeannie.

    3. The lady is Alice from The Brady Bunch but, alas, I don't know her boyfriend's name. :(

    $. The show is The Munster's. I don't know the address.

    the show is Lost in Space, Robby the Robot with Professor Smith, played by Johathan Harris.

    2. I thought I Dream of Jeanie took place in Cocoa Beach. Tony was an astronaut and worked at Cape Canaveral. Not sure, though.

    3. Alice's boyfriend's name was, Sam. She was the Brady Bunch's housekeeper.

    Love, Mikie

    Good game, Diane. Nice work, fellow detectives. Here are pics of some
    people who were once big stars on popular TV programs. Some were
    stars of radio as well.

    Hi everybody, or as Rock said: "fellow detectives"! :)

    Well, my friends, y'all got *most* of the answers. I'll post a summary below:

    1) Fred MacMurray and TRAMP, My Three Sons

    2) COCOA BEACH, Florida; I Dream of Jeannie

    3) Alice (from the Brady Bunch); boyfriend SAM THE BUTCHER

    4) The Munsters: 1313 MOCKINGBIRD LANE

    5) Gunsmoke, set in DODGE CITY, KANSAS

    6) The Robot's Name??
    The pic I posted is from Lost In Space.

    According to Wiki: The Robot was designed by Robert Kinoshita, who also designed Forbidden Planet's Robby the Robot. Robby appears in Lost in Space episode #20 "War of the Robots" and in episode #60 "Condemned of Space."

    This is a pic of ROBBY the ROBOT:


    Now, on to Rock's pictures ..............................................

    I'll attempt a few guesses ...............

    3. Judy Carne, of Laugh-In fame

    6. Milton Berle

    2. Is that the guy on the TV show with Batman??? I can't think of his name!!!!

    Later, friends................

    Diane :)

    Very good, Diane. Here is your loving cup. [​IMG]
    I figure it will hold 3-4 cups of love. Yes, it is Robin from Batman: Burt Ward. I
    read his autobiography a few years back. He was paid very little money on
    Batman. When the show became a big hit he asked for a raise. The producer
    screamed at him and threatened to fire him. (Just checked Wikipedia. It says
    he was paid $350 per episode. Eventually got a raise.) He also was injured
    doing some of the explosions, etc.

    Judy Carne and Milton Berle are correct. Judy was once married to Burt
    Reynolds. Laugh In was the big success of her show biz career. Burt Ward's
    career post Batman was somewhat more successful.

    Milton Berle was Mr Television in the early days of TV when most homes
    didn't have a TV. People reportedly bought a TV mainly to see Milt's show.

    I read that when the show ended, NBC paid him 5 million not to work
    on TV. It did not want competition from Milton on other networks. But
    Milton loved working, and was reportedly sorry he ever took the money.
    Still kept working as much as he could.

    #4 Don Adams was Maxwell Smart, "Get Smart"

    #5 Audrey Meadows was Alice Kramden, "The Honeymooners"

    #8 Jack Paar was an early host of "Tonight Show". The first person I saw on T.V. when I was about 12 years old, but I don't remember what progam.

    Hi All; sorry I'm so dumb! You are all well educated in things I was never exposed to. But I have a small contribution : #7 is Eddie Rochester Anderson. AKA Rochester, an actor from the forties and fifties I think.

    I cheated: Richard told me who he was----:(.
    I told ya I was dumb!

    I came in to late and it looks like you all got the answers before me. Yes, there was a few I wasn't sure about. Thought I would pop it to see DIANE and what she was up to :)!! Thanks DIANE, I had seen all of most of those programs and really enjoyed many of them. I hardly watch any TV now. I think for the most part TV shows have been going down hill lately.

    GB- You are absolutely right when you said that in those days people or children got many fewer presents. Birthday or Christmas was most of those times when we got gifts like stuff we needed for school, to wear, etc. In our stockings we got fruits, nuts, warm mittens or gloves and MAYBE a very small toy. They were also not the red stocking we see today probably one of my dad's old long socks. My mom was orphaned early in her life in what was then Czechoslovakia. It was also during or just after WWII so many people were struggling to get by. Thanks for that memory of your son GB. Hope you can find the picture to share. They are so sweet !!

    I loved The Honeymooners, My Three Sons, The Brady Bunch ( even though a bit corny now) but enjoyed it, Jack Paar, Milton Berle, etc.. and so many more.

    Hugz to everyone. I need to go do some washing, folding, etc. before going over tow watch FB at DD's a couple houses down.

    Hi everybody! And hi Granni for popping in!

    It seems like all of Rock's PICTURES were guessed.

    So guess what ........ here's more! Yippee! :eek:



    I'm gonna start where I left off:

    Hi Kids

    Diane, pic n. 7 is Irene Ryan as Daisy Moses aka Granny on the Beverly
    Hillbillies. The handsome young fellow on her left is Edgar Buchanan.
    I saw Irene many decades on some TV show. She did a very nice tap dance.

    No 9 is the cast of Bonanaza at the Ponderosa Ranch. The theme song was
    written by the guys what wrote "Silver Bells". You can hear Lorne Greene
    and others sing it on Youtube.

    Barry, no reason you should know American pop culture if you didn't
    grow up here. I'm sure not many Americans are familiar with Danny
    La Rue, Max Bygraves, Gracie Fields, Anna Neagle or Michael
    Wilding. The last named, Kids, was the first husband of Liz Taylor.

    Gordon sends you the names of 2 cozy mystery writers. Martha Grimes
    (the Richard Jury series) and M. C. Beaton who wrote the Agatha
    Raisin series (too dry for me) and the Hammish McBeth books.

    Hi Kids

    Number ten is Don Adams as Maxwell Smart with his shoe phone.
    Reminiscent of Dick Tracey and his wrist radio (which was actually
    more like a phone than a radio). My mother loved this show.


    Number 11 is Agnes Moorehead as Endora in Bewitched. Am
    reading a book by Debbie Reynolds. Agnes was a neighbor and

    I first thought number 8 was Joan Rivers, but now I see it is
    Bea Benaderet. Lucille Ball wanted her and Gale Gordon as the
    landlord/friends in I Love Lucy, but they were both busy. Bea
    was on a Lucy show though with Edward Evert Horton. It was
    showing here a couple days ago.

    Bea was on lots of radio shows including My favorite Husband which
    starred Lucille Ball and morphed into I love Lucy on TV. She was
    also on the George Burns/Gracie Allen show and Petticoat Junction,

    So I think that completes the last batch.
