Some of them, like Frawley, Moe, Burns and Benny were pretty obvious. I wonder how many people got Irene Ryan wrong, since it was fairly well-known that she wasn't actually old enough to be Buddy Ebsen's mother and was playing a character much older than herself.

Hey, I got them all right! I used to look up famous people's birthdays. Not so much now. I tend to be older than a lot of them 😉
