Growing up, there were shows that we watched that became part of our family.  So much so, that the characters were bigger than life.  Most of us never knew them by their birth names, or the stage names they took on when they started acting.

How many of these TV show characters can you tie to the show they were in?  Who played the part of these characters? Send me your answers via email and I will see how well you did.

There might even be a prize for the person with the most correct answers.
