10/10. I didn't actually "know" all of these numbers, of course, but I have a good sense of how often each character appeared.

I've got to find out if Svengoolie has ever shown Plan 9 From Outer Space and
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians and
Gremlins. I WILL check it out.

Joanna Moore (Peggy McMillan) was on the movie Monster ON The Campus &
Aneta Corsaut (Helen Crump) eas in the movie called The Blob with Steve
McQueen. I wonder if Svengoolie has ever shown these two movies.
Here is the broadcast schedule from when Rich Koz began hosting the program back in 1995 on WCIU (one of Weigel's flagship stations, prior to the formation of MeTV), to present.

https://thetvdb.com/series/svengoolie-on-me-tv/allseasons/official

Yes the Blob has been shown, and you can find other movies you may have questions about on this schedule. Prior to that time you can easily Google additional information, as it is readily available.
I will check about the movies
This Island Earth and Attack OF
The Crab Monsters with Russell Johnson and Monster ON The
Campus with Joanna Moore.
I will also check for the movies
Clue TEN Little Indians My Demon
Lover Fiend Without A Face
Love AT First Bite Dracula :Dead and Loving It Svengali (1931 with
John Barrymore and Marion Marsh as TRILBY) AND The Rocky Horror
Picture Show and Beetlejuice.
I would like to see METV write an article on The Horror Hosts on TV
Including Svengoolie Wolfman Macs
Chiller Drive In on RETRO TV and
Bowman Body (Bill Bowman ) the host of Shock Theater on channel 8
WRIC -formally WXEX and Dr Paul
Bearer (Dick Bennick ) the host of
Shock Theater on channel 8 WGHP
in High Point NC and the other horror hosts around the United States. Different TV weatherman
Like Frank Deal who told Henny
Youngman jokes while he was giving the weather and other TV
Weathermen around the country.
I would also like to see an article
On actors Vito Scotti (Dr Boris
Balinkoff ) and Mike Mazurki (Igor ) from The Friendly Physician episode of Gilligan's Island. Mike Mazurki
Was in a lot of movies including
Thank Your Lucky Stars a 1943
Eddie Cantor movie where Mike
Mazurki played Olof.
Vito Scotti also played the Japanese sailor on Gilligan's Island.
Channel 8 WRIC is in Petersburg -
Richmond where Bill Bowman played Bowman Body the host of
Shock Theater on ch.8 WRIC-tv.
" I would like to see METV write an article on The Horror Hosts on TV."

That would be a better topic for the Svengoolie Blogs. Although Svengoolie is a regular Saturday program. For general interest It's not likely MeTV would publish an article on this section of their website, drawing interest away from Rich Koz. That doesn't mean Rich Koz wouldn't be interested in the topic on the Svengoolie website. Here's the Contact info from the Svengoolie Website:

ThE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF THE
STRANGE MR. SCHWAMP!!
THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE TITLE OF A
PERRY MASON TV EPISODE !!
I agree with Dave Sundstrom that
Ron Howard most likely knows the
name and identity of the man who
Played Mr.Schwamp on TAGS.
Some home movies of Ron Howard and his family show clearly that the
man who played Mr Schwamp is in
the home movies of Ron Howard.
Andy Griffith and Sheldon Leonard and Don Knotts probably knew the
Name of the man who played Mr.
Schwamp but when Andy Sheldon
And Don passed away they took the
Secret with them and never told soul. Ron Howard if you know who
Played Mr Schwamp please let the
Public know his identity.

----------------------------------------

Good point inadvertently made. If RH is the closest connection to who appeared in their home movies, no doubt he knows who the man was. Or at least how he came to be an Extra (means, no dialogue).

So here's the point. Considering how ardent (to be kind) TAGs ultra fans are, it's possible that there's been no desire to reveal anything about the individual. Could even be promised, not to do so. Or surely the man would've surfaced long ago among contemporary fans.

Here's the problem, which already makes actors (and particularly Stars) nervous is the fanaticism involved in people pushing further than a fictional piece of entertainment warrants (deserves). There've been notable instances of unsafe repercussions, and shouldn't it be expected for people to respect the privacy of others? We all want it for ourselves.

Let's be clear. Mysteries exist in real life as we find them in the News. There are NO mysteries in fictional writing, unless they are included as a plot device (meaning purpose). The characters don't "disappear" or come to "untimely" circumstances.

They are either written out, intentionally for some Series. Or a decision has been made to discontinue their inclusion. The entertainment they've brought to audiences can be (or not) appreciated. Otherwise, it's all pretty futile.

Mary Simpson 2 played by the pretty and wonderful Sue Ane Langdon was the Friendliest Girlfriend that Andy Taylor ever had and she never got mad at
Andy Taylor not even one time.
It's true that Sue Ane Langdon played
Mary Simpson 2 in one episode only of
TAGS but if she had stayed on TAGS
I Beleive that the writers of TAGS would have kept her friendly. Mary Simpson 2
Was in the TAGS episode Threes A
Crowd.Ellie Walker Peggy McMillan and
Helen Crump lost their temper with
Andy Taylor several times.
Come to think of it Barney Fifes first
2 girlfriends Miss Rosemary and Hilda
Mae never got mad at Barney but Thelma Lou got mad at Barney a lot.
On Gomer Pyle USMC Sergeant Carters girlfriend with three different last names
Bunny Harper Olsen Wilson had a bad temper also.

Ernest T. BASS WAS IN 5 EPISODES
OF THE ANDY GRIFFITH AND IN ONE EPISODE Howard Morris played George the TV repairman.

I wish that ED SAWYER played by
William Lanteau was on the TAGS
Episode called Stranger In Town and then Ed Sawyer vanished into thin air faster than you can say Chuck Cunningham. Several Mayberry Residents
Vanished without a trace including
Peggy McMillan and Warren Ferguson.
These Mayberry Residents who Vanished from Mayberry with no explanation were all victims of ED SAWYER SYNDROME.

I wish Helen Crump appeared in ZERO episodes!
I wish that the writers and producers of The Andy Griffith Show had made Mary Simpson
Played by Sue Ane Langdon Andy
Taylor's permanent girlfriend instead of appearing in one episode only of TAGS called Three's A Crowd. Peggy McMillan played by
Joanna Moore was my second choice for permanent girlfriend of
Andy Taylor. Peggy McMillan was only in 4 episodes of TAGS.
I guess if Ellie Walker or Peggy McMillan or Mary Simpson had stayed on TAGS that Helen CRUMP
Would have never arrived in Mayberry.

Would you be one of the Wild "Cats", the secret club Opie joined in S2E14" The Keeper of the Flame."

All I could do was guess at the times actors were in an episode. How else would know?
