11 for 12. Got number 10 wrong, have no memory of this character, a one off?
Did you know the writers used the names of various comedy writers for many of the sergeants
seen or merely mentioned on the series? Like Bill Persky.

Pretty easy. But, Vince Carter was a Gunnery Sergeant and Charlie Hacker was a Staff Sergeant. Marines like their full titles.

Well, most of the questions answered themselves, since the rank insignia was showing. So 11/12 and the comment that Pyle was PFC, not private, Carter was Gunnery Sergeant (Gunny I believe is the Marine word) and one of those "colonels" was a Lt Col.
But fun, eh?

10/12. Actually Vince Carter is a Gunnery Sargeant not a Sargeant.

Was Vince Carter of Gomer Pyle USMC related to Andrew Carter of Hogan's Heroes?
I realize it's a common name, but there could be a TV Universologist who has the answer.
It's a big, wide, wonderful world.

Look at the top of this page, you will see "Contact MeTV". You can submit items to them
there. Thet rarely if ever respond though. For example, on another site here I mentioned
that Jonny Quests PF Flyer shoes had a red dot trademark on the heel. Some dolt thinks
that is a mean spirited reference to the Hindu culture, and keeps clicking the little
"report this" flag to the right. I assume MeTV just goes along with this instead of
looking into the right or wrong or it. They are just empowering ignorance or crazies
with an agenda. So I have written them 3 times about this, no response.

Can you post the link to that other website you mentioned where it was different shows in the same universe or something like that?

Hi Moriyah,
Just do a search for "Magnum Mania: TV Universe With The Most Connected Series".
26 series connected, Opie could have appeared on Addams Family; did you know
Lurch was on Batman? NOT because I wrote this, but if I read it here on these
boards I would think it was pretty cool. What do you think of it?
Magnum Mania is one of the best fan sites. They have a lively section for
other TV series the fans like to post about. I hope you enjoy it.
