Loved Paul Lynde. His jokes were hilarious, especially the gay jokes, back in the day when gay was way in the back of the closet.

Pretty much all the WKRP actors are memories. I occasionally watch MeTV and AntTV and often google the people from those old shows just to see if they're still with us. Whatever happened to that bombshell Loni? After she and Burt split, she disappeared. Johnny Fever? Venus Flytrap?

Gale Gordon regularly appeared on Lucille Ball shows in a supporting role.

Willard Waterman's name is virtually unknown, but everyone who is familiar with the early days of television would recognize him, perhaps best known as the grocer on Dennis the Menace.

It seemed like Loni Anderson's career was basically over once she left that show - "Johnny Fever" was Anne Romano's love interest on One Day At A Time after WKRP ended. I don't know what happened to "Herb" and "Venus Flytrap." Seems like that show was the career height for many of the cast members.

You are contributing some great ones, CCcgirl!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_G._Carroll


Via Wiki:

"Carroll is perhaps best known for his roles in six Alfred Hitchcock films: Rebecca (1940), Suspicion (1941), Spellbound (1945), The Paradine Case (1947), Strangers on a Train (1951), and North by Northwest (1959). He appeared in more Hitchcock films than anyone other than Clare Greet (1871–1939) (who appeared in seven) and Hitchcock himself, whose cameos were a trademark. As with earlier roles, he was often cast as doctors or other authority figures (such as the spymaster "Professor" in North by Northwest)."

juice, we're old movie nuts. Cary Grant, the Thin Man complete set, the good John Wayne movies, we have them all on DVD. Cabin fever is rough up here in the winter...I'll bet we have at least three hundred movies on DVD and none of them were filmed after 1998.
