MeTV fan John Walsh wrote us and suggested, "For the quizzes how about the old TV Crossword clues?" Great idea! Do you have a great idea for a quiz? Share it with us!

Before handy channel guides were available right on your TV screen, you needed a way to find out what was airing! Good thing we had the TV Guide back in the day. The weekly listings magazine was more than just a printed schedule. There were also feature stories — and crossword puzzles!

We dug up the Television Crossword from the July 14, 1973, issue of TV Guide. (Sonny and Cher were on the cover.) Try to answer these crossword clues — without the grid!

  1. 16 Across: He's Hawkeye
  2. 41 Across: Gunsmoke's Milburn Stone
  3. 1 Across: Mr. Lynde

8/12. I was only a year old in '73, so I think that's pretty good. :-)

Missed three of 'em and I refuse to feel guilty because I was only 11 in 1973.

I sure wish that you would tell us who the actors are in individual episodes. I watched a Dick Van Dyke episode last night about a "Twizzle" dancer and singer and would love to know who he was. Unfortunately, the scroll afterwards was too fast and I never caught it. Who was he please? Thanks

If you go over to IMDb and search The Twizzle, it should bring up the list of actors - there are several with no pic and uncredited. Jerry Lanning played the part of Randy Twizzle.
