Answer to Yesterday’s Trivia Question:  This actor on a classic television series did not receive an “acting” credit on the show, and viewers never saw his face nor knew who he was.  It was only at the onset of Season #3 that viewers first saw his face on screen and knew only then he was also the creator of the show.   Who is he?   CARL REINER on THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW  Kudos to: Scott Collins/NY; Dom Caristi-Ball State Univ/Muncie; Ken Melamed-Bred Adams Ltd/NY; Matt Oestreich-WFTV/Orlando; Marc Christian-KMID/Midland; Patti Rodriguez-KXRM KXTU/Colorado Springs; Gretchen Brady-KDAF/Dallas; Julie Houston-Donahoe Pace & Partners/Boise; Kathleen Campbell-ScreamFest LA/LA; Craig Nichols-Channel 4/San Diego; Greg Stewart-Evolution Media/Burbank; Terry Danuser-Discovery Comm/LA; Bruce Nachbar-Outtabrooklyn Prods/Tokyo
Today’s Trivia Question:   She was never seen on this show, but her antics were often discussed among the title characters.  One on occasion she reportedly threw hatchets at an ice cream vendor, was known to howl at the moon and even made a necklace out of chicken necks.  Who did she work for?    (Email [email protected] with your answer and be sure to include your name, company, city and time zone.
