"You got 3 out of 8 Could you recognize Scatman Crothers in these Classic TV shows, or did you have to do a double take?"------I got 2, 3, and 5 right.

My favourite is when he voiced a dog alongside Joe E. Ross (Guenther Toody) in a cartoon "Hong Kong Phooey"

He voiced "Scat Cat" in The Aristocats. Likely the first time I saw or heard him.

So I've read.

I started watching Aristocats earlier, and saw his name in the credits.

7/8 - that episode of "Kolchak" (about a zombie) is one of the best in the series - second only to "Horror in the Heights" IMO.

5/8. What's with that wig in #8? Did they really need a character with hair for that scene?

7/8. A very talented actor. My best memory of him was an episode of "Chico" where Sammy Davis guest starred. At the end of the show, Davis, Jack Albertson and Crothers all joined in to do a soft shoe dance. It was great! And all Freddie Prinze could do was look on in awe. And don't forget the horrible death Scatman received in "The Shining".
