    Harry Morgan (Col,. Sherman Potter)

    John Wayne

    William Christoper as Father Mulcahy

    Henry Winkler as The Fonz

    Bill Shatner as Jim Kirk

    Leonard Nimoy as Spock

    DeForest Kelley as Bones McCoy

    Chuck Conners as Lucas McCaine.( SP?)

    Clayton Moore as The Lone Ranger( William Reid)

    Geo.Reeves (Clark Kent -NOT Chris Reeve as CK, what a Wimp)

    Lorenzo Lamas as Reno Raines; the outlaw biker/bounty hunter

    And his 88" Harley, Of Course.

    Tom Bosley as Howard Cunningham

    The scarecrow ( Jack Haley) from  The Wizard of Oz"  He really had a lot of common sense,for  someone with "no brains"

    I Specifically avoid Alda as Hawkeye, as too often he is arrogant, narcissistic, thinks he is God's gift to women. Rarely a father figure except when it comes to medical decisions. He is then all pro, for patient's best interest.
