    Actually, I'm thinking it was Mike and Carol Brady.

    No, that was Gene Simmons.

    Okay, this one has me puzzled, because I just saw another source that said the answer was Bewitched.

    Who was the only regular cast member of the TV show "M*A*S*H" to actually serve in the Army in Korea?
    Ironically, it was Jamie Farr (Klinger). Proudly and without the dresses.

    Leonard Nimoy's Spock was the only original Star Trek crew member from the first pilot to continue on the Enterprise's 3 year mission.

    The theme song to long running NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives was written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, the same duo who created The Monkees.


    Arnold Schwarzenegger was considered for the role of The Hulk but, even at 6' 2", was reportedly not tall enough (Lou Ferrigno is 6' 5").


    The Beverly Hillbillies theme song was #44 on the charts in 1962.


    There were three episodes of The Andy Griffith Show that mentioned that Andy and Barney were cousins: The New Housekeeper, The Manhunt, Runaway Kid


    Elizabeth Montgomery played the roles of Samantha Stephens and her more free-spirited cousin Serena on Bewitched. However in the cast listing, the role of Serena was listed as being played by Pandora Spocks


    Hugh Beaumont, Ward Cleaver on Leave It To Beaver, held a Master of Theology degree from the University of California and was an ordained minister. Before graduating from California he also attended the University of Chattanooga.


    The reason Theodore Cleaver was nicknamed "Beaver" was that his brother, Wally, when he was little, could not pronounce "Theodore."


    Jeffrey Hunter played the captain of the Enterprise in the first Star Trek pilot.

    James Tiberius Kirk was the youngest starship captain ever. Gene Roddenberry's first choice for Captain Kirk was Lloyd Bridges . Jack Lord of Hawaii Five-0 was asked to play Captain Kirk before Shatner.


    After the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, William Katt's character's name on The Greatest American Hero was changed from Ralph Hinkley to Ralph Hanley to avoid association with would-be assassin John Hinkley Jr.



    On the 2004 TV reunion movie, Mike Seaver offers his old jacket to his daughter she says that it is no big deal because "it's not like Leonardo DiCaprio wore it", but he actually did wear it when he starred on the last season of Growing Pains.

    Barry Williams (Greg Brady) has written about his unsuccessful attempts to put the moves on Maureen McCormick (Marcia).

    What was the name of the newspaper that Sam Drucker was editor of in the series Petticoat Juction and Green Acres?
