Can you name these celebrity guest stars on 'Diff'rent Strokes'?

Try to I.D. these famous faces from the White House, the world of sports and beyond.

Arguably, no other sitcom has had bigger guest stars. Ever. What other family comedy can claim to have visitors from the White House, from Olympic podiums, from heavyweight championship rings, from Super Bowl halftime shows, and from the Halls of Fame of the MLB and NBA? 

That's not to mention the many other familiar Hollywood faces, both old and young, that turned up on Diff'rent Strokes over its eight seasons. The following celebrities popped in on the Drummonds between 1978 and 1985. Test your pop culture knowledge of the era and see if you know what we're talkin' 'bout.
