Out of all the members of the Rat Pack, Sammy Davis Jr. was perhaps the most game for a quick television appearance. Sure, Joey Bishop had his own sitcom, but Sammy popped up on all sorts of shows for decades, from the Fifties through the Eighties.

You could also spot him in soaps, comedies, action hours, and dramas. Variety shows, too, naturally. He was always up for a little song and dance.

Let's see if you can place him. We gathered images from his memorably classic TV appearances. Try and guess the shows!

"You got 11 out of 12" -------"Are you an honorary member of The Rat Pack... or did you just say "Rats!" Share your score below!" I only got #12 wrong.

11 out of 12. I thought it was All My Chikdren because Carol.Burnett was on it, according to herself on The Carol Burnett Show. I never watched any of those soaps back then because I was still a kid and hated soaps.
