HIC was her last show, but I'm looking for a '90's show that starred someone mentioned in this quiz!

You're talking about "Bob," aren't you?
cperrynaples Jeremy 31 months ago
Yes, Bob was first a comic book artist, then a greeting card writer! Betty came on in season 2 where she was more Sue Anne than Rose!

Here's a really tricky question: 2 of the stars mentioned in this quiz worked together on a variety show in the mid '60's! Name the stars and the show! Hint: the third star of this show was a woman named Caterina Valente!

I know Monty Python very well and a huge fan. I think we have had conversations about MP. I know I had sent a silly olympics clip months back. I think you have mentioned having the collection though.

Yes, and the song was something she recorded over 60 years ago! You'd be surprized how many young people are inspired by old music!
LoveMETV22 cperrynaples 32 months ago
