Can you name what series Sheldon Leonard, creator of The Andy Griffith Show, is in?

Did you know the creator of The Andy Griffith Show played in these roles across classic TV?

The name Sheldon Leonard should absolutely ring a bell for fans of The Andy Griffith Show. That's because he was the co-creator of the smash series which hit the air back in 1960. 

Creating the world of Mayberry was enough to be a career-defining achievement, but there was plenty more to his career both before and after The Andy Griffith Show. Leonard, before producing shows like TAGS, I Spy, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. and The Dick Van Dyke Show, could be seen in a number films created in the 1940s. 

Leonard also made plenty of brief appearances across classic TV before, during and after The Andy Griffith Show was on the air. Can you name these classic shows The Andy Griffith Show creator was in?

Not a big fan of Big Bang Theory but the characters Sheldon and Leonard were named in homage to Sheldon Leonard.

6 out of 9. Sheldon Leonard was also in one of the Thin Man movies with William Powell & Myrna Loy - can’t remember which one though! He played a blackmailer and was great as usual!

BONUS Question: What short-lived sitcom did Leonard star on in the mid-'70's?

Yep, and his wife was played by Sheree North, best remembered as Kramer's mother on Seinfeld! She only had one word, which was Kramer's first name! Do you remember what it was? Hint: It probably came from a classic '50's sitcom!

Are you referring to the episode "The Switch".

Yep, George hires Babs to spy on his girlfriend and she blurts out the name "Cosmo" to a surprised George! The sitcom I was referring to was Topper with Leo G. Carroll, better known as Mr. Waverly on The Man From Uncle!
I deleted those TV shows but I can't remember which METV Artcle that I uploaded the 2
Three Stooges Shorts with Shemp Howard called Heavenly Daze and Bedlam In Paradise.
If you see those 2 Three Stooges Shorts with Shemp then let me know which METV Artcle where I put the 2 Three Stooges Shorts with Shemp.
I will delete the 3 Stooges Shorts Bedlam In Paradise and Heavenly Daze just as soon as I can find those shorts.

9/9. "Big Max Calvada" is my favorite D.V.D. episode. Sheldon and henchman Bernard (Arthur Batanides-"the kid breaks me up") is awesome deadpan humor. Sheldon as police lieutenant in To Have And Have Not opposite Bogey and Bacall is a must see.
