    I could never stand Bob Denver who played that fumbling idiot in "Gilligan's Island".

    The show itself was pretty dumb too.

    That's it,

    John Denver, Groucho Marx, Jerry Lee Lewis. Hell, I liked, generally, the announcers more than I did those they represented:

    Durward Kirby, Dennis James, Brace Beamer, .......

    If I disliked them a lot, and there was a choice, I probably didn't watch them, and can't remember any.

    I'd have to go way back to the variety and game shows, when there weren't many choices. Only 2 come to mind. Recognize them?

    Of course! Uncle Milty and Robert Q. Lewis, who moderated several quiz shows. Now, do you remember "Queen for a Day"? Or, "Down you Go", or "I've got a Secret"?

    Most of the content back then was broadcast "live", as there was no means to preserve a show presentation to be sent later except by filming it. That provided poor results. Thus, the live show presentations which the state of the art then required extremely bright lighting, caused many personalities to appear overworked, perspiring heavily, as Jackie Gleason did. He ad-libbed some of the most humorous lines of back then.

    Very early: Bud Collyer, "Beat the Clock". There were so many, it's hard now to sort them out in my mind. My folks and I watched without fail, "Death Valley Days", as well as "Boston Blackie", "Highway Patrol", later "Gunsmoke", earlier, but much worthy of mention, "Sea Hunt", during which time Lloyd Bridges was busy off the set with two sons, Beau and Jeff. Jeff had a starring role in the movie "Tucker", which caught my fancy most seriously. My Dad and our next door neighbor had placed two-hundred dollar depoisits to buy Tucker cars. The money was returned.

    There was something about Milton Berle concerning his manhood that decorum prevents me from mentioning here, but it was apparently well-known.

    Well, I didn't dislike the guy, rather thought he was pretty funny, but then, I had never heard the "tail" you brought up. When I did, in later years, it's consideration was likely different than it would have been had I heard it when young.......

    On the Andy Griffith Show, I know that the Don Knotts character Deputy Barney Fife was in it for the laughs, but I thought Sheriff Andy would have at least picked a more manly-looking partner than that wimp.

    Jim Nabors would have been a better looking Deputy, even if he did screw things up!

    His real name was Paul Reubens, he played the part of fictitious character Pee Wee Herman.

    "In July 1991, Reubens was arrested for indecent exposure in an adult theater in Sarasota, Florida. The arrest set off a chain reaction of national media attention that changed the general public's view of Reubens and Pee Wee."

    Here's a final look! Enjoy!

    I'll include movie actor Woody Allen in my don't like files.

    A most unmanly wimp...the antithesis of John Wayne!

    I am sure I'll anger some people here, but I wasn't overly impressed with the acting skills of John Wayne. Had I seen him in one or two of his best movies, maybe, but he was the same in every role he played, so I couldn't picture him as whatever character he was playing. Regardless of the role, he was just John Wayne. I didn't dislike him but, regardless of the character he was supposed to be playing, he was John Wayne.

    Aside from your thoughts, the public revered his as a "true American". In one scene after the "take", in which Bruce Dern shoots and kills him, as they walked away together, Wayne said to Dern, "They're gonna hate you for that!". And the public certainly did, judging by the immediate reaction to Dern's popularity.

    I agree with Marion Morrisson* not being the greatest actor of the American Western Macho type, but he typified that image anyway!

    *(Marion Morrisson is the Duke's real name )

    He did me too, but my wife considered him to be the funniest person on television.

    I have always said that John Wayne couldn't act and Johnny Cash couldn't sing.

    Archie Bunker was an arrogant, overbearing, racist *&%!@#!*. I never could see why anybody thought he was funny. And Edith was a weak, simpering fool. I always wanted to slap her up side her head and tell her to develop a backbone.

    I couldn't stand Carrol O'Conner in "In the Heat of the Night" , either. That was the fakest southern accent I ever heard. Sidney Poitier was suppose to be from Philadelphia but his southern accent was worse than O'Conner's.
