22 February 17

Some of today's famous names in television, born on 22 February: Gale Gordon (1906), Robert Young (1906), Sheldon Leonard (1907), Don Pardo (1918), and Pebbles Flintstone (1963). Remember "Mr. Mooney," "Father" (Jim Anderson) and "Marcus Welby," "Nick" (from It's a Wonderful Life), and "the voice" on Jeopardy and Saturday Night Live? One interesting fact about Gordon, Young, Leonard and Pardo: Each had a single spouse for over 50 years. I'm not sure what to say about the "birth" of Pebbles Flintstone. My shirt and tie resemble what Gale Gordon wore for one of his publicity photos.
