Bea Benaderet (spelling?) the voice of Betty would have been good live. Barney’s voice, Mel Blanc would have been good as Barney.
Ken Osmond (Eddie Haskell) would be a good Arnold.

Well of course you have to look at the Movie to see how they actually pulled this off, suggesting real actors for those roles!!

I picked Alan Hale Jr aka The Skipper. Jackie Gleason is too obvious to play Fred since it was based on him. As for Arnold Billy Mumy is perfect cause Arnold is a know it all who gets the better of Fred.
