My favorite. Tom Terrific and Mighty Manfred.
(Yeah, yeah, film, not TV!)
Don't forget Beau Mavrick (Roger Moore).
How about Lassie....originally played by lassie..later in the years Lassie was played by Lassie.
Rob and Laura Petrie
Officers Jim Reed & Pete Malloy. Unfortunately, they never had the opportunity to work with Joe Friday & Bill Gannon.
"The dicks have their job, we have ours."
Yogi Bear & Boo-boo (was he like the result of a bad decision? Anybody know?).
Same could be said about Honey Boo Boo.
Pepe....le Pew~ ~ ~
Uncle Tonoose(Hans Conried) who was in multiple tv shows and did voice overs for cartoon.
That was one of my faves when I was very young too! "A bumble bee, or a tree? It's meeeeeee!"
And then there was Crabby Appleton and Isotope Feeny, The Nuclear Meanie. I can still recall Crabby's theme song by memory ...
"My name is Crabby Appleton, and I am simply awful,
It titillates my funny bone to do something unlawful.
I'm fond of gloom, impending doom, I think good deeds are sappy,
I laugh with glee, it pleases me, when everyone's unhappy!"
(Sung in the very appropriate Aeolian minor, of course.)
When I think back, it was quite the vocabulary-builder for someone of preschool age. I remember asking my mom what "impending" meant. I know that I was first exposed to "nuclear/nucleus" in that series and learned that nucleus ~= core from the Captain's intro.
Rocky and Bullwinkle
Rocket J. Squirell and Bullwinkle J Moose
Boris, Natasha and Fearless Leader
Kids show with adult humor.
and later on Lassie was replaced byLassie.
Sat mornings was Fury and Circus Boy played by Mickey Dolenz, later of the Monkees.
Must have had a thing for jungle animals!
Stroke! Stroke! Stroke!
(Bail, bail, bail.)
Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit outa this hat!
Oops, wrong hat!
MIss Kitty from Gunsmoke....The original Hello Kitty
A kudo if anyone knows Doc Adams first name without cheating.
Hmmmm ... any relation to Dr. Frank-N-Furter?
Dr. Galen Adams. He and Kitty were also friends with Matt Dillon, Chester Good, Quint Asper, Festus Hagen, Newly O'Brien, Ma Smally, Sam the bartender, Moss the livery man and Burke the freight operator. I think I've seen far too many reruns during the pandemic!
Very good grasshopper. The episode it was revealed, guest star was Vera Miles. It was the only time his name was mentioned. You forgot Toobill(Frank DeKova) who was Matt's go to for info out on the prarie.... He went on to play Chief Wild Eagle on F Troop which had a great cast....
On another note, how about Fuji from McHale's Navy.... They'd never get away with that today.
It also had a Gruber....the late Carl Ballentine.
I could go on all day...... try the veal
Doc Adams first name was mentioned in another episode by a former collegue, Dr Schultz I think it was. When he said Doc,s first name Matt showed suprise. I think that was when it was first mentioned. Can't gaurantee it though.
Separate names with a comma.
