Great job!  (Thank you to Lavender and Princess for responding.)  Just one left...

#8  Liberty Bell March written by John Philips Sousa.    A very familiar tune associated with a British comedy sketch show (1969-1974) featuring a dead parrot, silly walks,  and Spam.

Good guess!   But this show's cast includes John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman.  The cast from this show went on to make movies about the Holy Grail and The Life of Brian .

Thanks Peebs :)

Although many think this actor was Italian, he was Jewish. He was a stage, film actor  and known for his iconic tv role. He appeared in some films with Sinatra, Bette Davis, Tony Curtis, Mickey Rooney. His long running tv show is legendary. Actor and his famous tv show ??

If we are allowed to ask questions:  1) was he the star of the show?  2) did the show run in the 1970's or earlier?  I was thinking of someone but his first name is definitely Jewish (and his TV show only ran a season or two).

No, you need to wait for clues. I'll give you this, yes, he was the star. If you have a guess  just post it.  With a guess you get the next clue. btw, please post the next one in movie songs, you forgot to post the next one.

Sounds like the one and only Columbo to me...Peter Falk.  He was in The Great Race with Tony Curtis,  Robin and the Seven Hoods with Sinatra,  Pocketful of Miracles with Bette Davis It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World with Rooney (and lots of other stars).  Loved his 'Sam Diamond' in Murder by Death...didn't love his character in the hot mess, Tune in Tomorrow...

Yes it's Peter Falk and the one and only great  Columbo. Although most thought Peter was Italian probably because of Columbo, Peter Falk was Jewish. Perfect casting for the long running tv show Columbo.  Good thinking Shutoo, your thread :)

Wow! An impressive list of questions, Shutoo.

4.  Waiting for an Armadillo ("Up down, yes no.  Should I stay of should I go...")

5.  His uncle Hezekiah's baby picture from 1863 with Abe Lincoln in the background

9.  Alan Brady, the artist Sergi Carpetna who painted a nude picture of Laura, and the poet Yale Sampson 

15.  Larry was Buddy's German shepherd  and  Mr. Henderson was Sally's cat .  

19.  A "friendship" check to split a yearly maintenance.  When they bought their houses at the same time, Rob's had a giant rock in the basement that floods Jerry's.

I haven't watched this show since I was in Elementary School.

But I can answer number 20)

Rob and Laura Met through the USO when Rob was in the Army and Laura was a performer.

On this episode Laura performs a song and dance to  Rodgers and Hart's "Mountain Greenery".

Mary was a pretty good dancer. But Dick Van Dyke was a very good dancer.

Yes, she was a dancer in the uso show...but, no, Mountain Greenery was from a different episode

I guess sometimes I forget not everyone lives in the bizarro world of old sitcoms like me, 😊

(We've been watching the reruns recently, so some of these are fresh in my memory.  Some I had to let marinate ...)

2.  Fiona is Buddy's wife, Pickles.  She explains to Mr. Tripp (at a party?) that everyone in her neighborhood named Fiona was nicknamed Pickles.  She was the only Fiona in her neighborhood.

12.  Rob loses a script.  He has to meet the  guy who found it and is holding it for ransom.  He's meeting him at the Louis Wexler water fountain in a park.

18.  Rob has temporary amnesia and ends up at a party in Red Hook, NJ.  He gives a girl there raisin cake (raisin bread?) who sleeps with it under her pillow.

13. Gilbert and Solomon were the names Sally and Buddy used in the lodge in the Catskills they were performing in. I remember some of these episodes from a million years ago. It's funny though, I watched the episode when Laura is on that show and reveals Alan's wearing a toupee but I can't remember what prizes she won and that was only a month or so ago LOL- probably kitchen appliances.

I thought this would be a toughie!  It's the only time we hear Pickle's real name, portrayed twice by Barbara Perry, then 3 times (with slightly bigger role) by Joan Shawlee

 

let's see...I think 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 17, and the first two parts of 20 are still open...I'll try to give some clues if no one can recall...

6.   Laura was saving to buy Rob  an "XKG JFK 400 Roadster with matching luggage" and Rob gets a Tarantula.  (I remembered the Tarantula because James Dean  died in a Spyder.)

7.  A dryer, a vacuum  a rotisserie, and a projector.  

8.  I remember parts of this one....The company goes on strike his first day.  He has to write something like the technical manual or catalog for something in manufacturing.   TV tubes?

17.  Buddy's brother Blacky was a pool shark but I don't know where he's from.  (Chicago? A guess.)   Buddy's uncle owned a shoe store, I think.

20.  Was it Camp Crowder, MO?  I can't remember where Laura's from.  Somewhere in the Midwest?    (Rob, I think, was Danville, IL Van Dyke's real hometown. )
