    Wasn't Robin Williams' first TV show a guest spot on Happy Days, starring as an alien in one of Richie's dreams.. he had to battle the Fonz - Fonzie's thumb (and touch on the jukebox and pinball machines) vs. Williams' alien's finger?

    Which came first? Tom Hanks on Bussom Buddies or Tom Hanks' guest spot as Alex's uncle on 'Family Ties'?

    Bosom Buddies predated Family Ties by a couple years. Hanks had a couple movies under his belt by then.

    On topic, I find it funny that Russell Dalrymple's hottie 15-year-old daughter in season 4 of Seinfeld was Denise Richards.

    George Wendt, Shelley Long, Larry (sic) Fishburne, Patrick Swayze, Ron Howard all cameoed on M*A*S*H at one time or another.

    Don't forget Molly Ringwald as a season 1 star on "Facts of Life"

    I should've have checked IMDB first. :)
    However in doing a check on it.. Family Ties predated his big screen debut (Splash) by a year. Between Bosom Buddies and Family Ties was just a series of TV guest apperances.

    Well done, Joe. I was just going on memory because I watched way too much TV as a young'un.

    Also, Conan O'Brien was a writer for Saturday Night Live, as were a bunch of other comedic luminaries. O'Brien had a couple cameos.

    Conan was also a writer for The Simpsons in an early season

    Bridgette Wilson was "Ginger" on Saved By The Bell. The ditzy girl who asked Zack "Do I have lipstick on my teeth?"

    Mr Bastard,

    Actually the mechanic's only child was in two episodes Mayberry-wise. The episode you mention: I thought the line was "Thank you very much, sherrif." I might be be wrong. It was the episode that has Opie finding an abandoned baby. The other episode: Jack has a big part. Andy and Barn go to Raleigh (some lawmen's meeting, Barnie was probably polishing his bullet) and Jack is accused of a robbery (a TV I think). Our heroes stumble on stuff that clears Jack. Jack on the stand, professing his innocence--it was like Larry Olivier doing community theatre.

    Ed Harris with a little part (not one of featured guest stars) as a dirty cop in The Rockford Files.

    YHS, etc

    Anyone see Paul Reubens on Letterman last night? They showed the "giant underpants" bit.
