Can you name these classic TV characters you never see onscreen?

I.D. the most mysterious characters we never saw on classic TV.

 
Some of the most unforgettable characters on classic TV were characters we never once saw on the screen. 

From dramas like Charlie's Angels to sitcoms like The Andy Griffith Show, these characters added a certain air of mystery to shows from every decade.

Think you can put a name to all these faceless TV stars?

Scroll through the questions below. Only the biggest TV fans can name 8/10 offscreen characters. Good luck!
  1. On 'Charlie's Angels,' the Angels receive instructions through this speakerphone. Who's the character we never see who speaks through it?
  2. On 'Columbo,' Detective Columbo lives with a Mrs. Columbo who he sometimes phones and often refers to, but she is never seen on camera. Who is she in relation to Columbo?
  3. On 'Cheers,' Norm refers to his wife all the time, but it becomes a joke that the audience never sees her. Here, she shows up at Thanksgiving but gets a pie in her face. What was her name?
  4. On 'The Andy Griffith Show,' there's a waitress who Barney sometimes dates, but who we never see on screen. What was her name?
  5. On 'Magnum, P.I.,' Thomas Magnum lives in "Robin's Nest," the luxury beachfront estate owned by which author?

  6. On 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' Mary's neighbor Phyllis has a husband who never appears onscreen. What was his name?
  7. On 'Home Improvement,' the Taylor family has a neighbor whose face is always partially obscured, usually by the fence between their yards. What was his name?

  8. On 'M*A*S*H,' this character only appeared onscreen once, but we often heard his voice when Radar or Klinger called him up. What was his name?
  9. On 'Twin Peaks,' Agent Dale Cooper recorded tapes that were always addressed to his secretary at the FBI. What was her name?

  10. On 'Leave It to Beaver,' Beaver often talked about a girl in his class. Perhaps you remember, she had an extra toe on both feet? What was her name?

How could you forget John Beresford Tipton (the protagonist of "The Millionaire") who was also never seen, only heard (voiced by the legendary Paul Frees)?

You got 7 out of 10
Darn, missed a few. No shame in phoning a friend next time!

Found Columbo Boring and annoying, haven't seen Twin Peaks since it went off the air and NEVER saw/nor want to see a pathetic goody-goody show like Left a cleaver in your skull.
