Rose Marie was in a Monkees episode.

Morey Amsterdam guested on another TV series as Buddy Sorrell.
Anybody want to guess which one? Because of such stunt casting, the Dick Van Dyke Show
exists in the same TV universe as many other series.

8/10 on Rose Marie. Loved her humor and singing "I Want To Be Around (to pick up the pieces)."

"You got 7 out of 10. Hey, great job! You know your stuff!"

I knew who Ginny Simms was because she was in a Abbott & Costello movie and was a knock out.

4/10 didn't do well at all

Me too. I usually do very well to perfect at that sort of thing. Honestly, her early career before Dick Van Dyke, was before my time.

7/10 I don't know her all that well.

7/10. Pretty good for being most familiar with Dick Van Dyke Show reruns, Hollywood Squares and two episodes of The Monkees.

She was also in seasons 2 and 3 of "The Doris Day Show."

I don't remember that. Of course, I just vaguely remember The Doris Day Show...

My Mom saw her when she performed as a child in PA. Before going on she made the Sign of the Cross. She was known as Baby Rose Marie then.

Besides Rob and Laura, all the major characters on the Dick Van Dyke Show were Jewish,
as were the actors portraying them. At least according to various sources I read over
the years. Are you sure Rose Marie was Christian? Not that it matters, maybe the sources
I had read were wrong.

Rose Marie was Italian, I'm quite sure she was Catholic.

Missed one. Have seen her perform as a kid during the shorts on Turner Classic Movies. She was a pistol as Baby Rose Marie.

Morey Amsterdam was starving when still very young, a kid, and the mobsters in Chicago felt
bad for him, giving him jobs as a "go for" in their nightclubs. He eventually worked his way up
and became a comic. He knew the biggest mobsters from Capone on down.
I always thought his story would make a good movie.

6/10 Some lucky guesses since I only knew #4 and #7.
