I know this has been talked about but TAGS characters crop up in the strangest places and when you find them you just gotta tell somebody! 

I was just watching an Alfred Hitchcock episode 'How to Get Rid of Your Wife' and lo and behold there was Chester and Skippy and they were in the same scenes together.  It's almost as exciting as finding a new Tom sighting!

I was watching some random old sit-coms on YouTube today and started watching a series starring Betty Hutton called "Goldie," circa 1959.  Goldie's best friend is a cigarette girl played by Jean Carson, known to us as Fun Girl Daphne and convict Naomi.  She was a pretty, young brunette, but there's no mistaking that voice!

If you watch Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock you'll see many of our friends playing roles before they came to Mayberry, even Opie and Aunt Bee.

Great find MM!

Just watching another Alfred Hitchcock, 'The Right Kind of House' and Malcolm Tucker aka Mr. Foster is the main character.

He is also in the film 3:10 to Yuma.

Although not a television show no less than six TAGS alumni appeared in Rosemary's Baby including Hope Summers (Clara Edwards [Johnson]), Walter Baldwin (the first Floyd), Almira Sessions (Mrs. Fletcher), Jean Inness, Roy Barcroft and Pearl Cooper (wife in Horse Trader).

I was watching an episode of Leave It To Beaver the other day, where Beaver and Larry were "arrested" for stealing a rowboat. The gruff but friendly police sergeant looked familiar....it was Derekson, the bad guy in The Manhunt, played by Frank Gerstle.

Those were the days when TV was entertainment.  Today... not so much.

That is one of my favorite Leave It To Beaver episodes. So many of the things that happened to Beaver happened to me as a kid. I always seemed to get in a jam like that!

It was a sad day when Netflix discontinued this series. 

I hope you never got trapped in a giant bowl of soup on a billboard!

LOL Or gave your father's best suit to the rummage sale.

Haha, never was in such a soup bowl and did not give away my dads best suit, but I did give away other family member's item. Drove a gocart down the road when I was very young, went to a carnival that I had no permission and had the best time ever! Broke my brothers trophy by accident. Broke other things by accident and hid them. I was always mailing in for things, but never an accordion or baby alligator.
