I've seen every ep. of Modern Family, I watched both seasons of The Toy Box and I've seen Ellen hilariously scare the actor many times over the years. A sheep 6 is surprising. My apologies as I should have just gone with the J! champ. My thinking was that even if someone knew who the actor was, that person may not know his name.

I'm amazed that there was so little crossover. I mean, yeah there are a lot of names to choose from. But I also see a lot of standard names in the list. Yet all of them except Dizzie Gillespie and George Benson (for some reason) are DIFFERENT standard names.

I think you've gotten my answers mixed up. I know I answered Django Reinhart and Overland Park. I've never heard of Olanthe.

I would say Louis Armstrong, some may differ...

I struggled with this question a bit for the opposite reason. I wanted to select someone from my favorite jazz era (before and also including the Big Band Era) that was famous in his time but not well-known to the casual music listener (but famous enough to be counted correct here) and chose Harry Reser from among my mental list of many dozens... but somehow blueoncemoon got the credit for it in the listings.

FTR, Leawood is the suburb i couldn't originally parse out; the fact that my parents live there makes it an even bigger forehead slap.

Surprising how few vocalists were picked. I avoided Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald thinking it very possible that each could get multiple hits. Holiday was a singleton and Fitzgerald got no love at all.
