If this blog were a book, you'd read it on the toilet.
The name Leslie Uggams reminds me of the character "Mrs. Wiggins", the dumb blonde secretary that Carol Burnett played on her show. I'm sure Leslie's a bit brighter than that, though.
My parents always watched Sing along with Mitch. I hated it, but remember them talking about Leslie Uggams back then. And I am old dude, so you know how old that makes Leslie!
I always got a kick out of the names Randolph Mantooth, Basil Rathbone & Agnes Moorehead.
Does Ms. Uggams have big juggams??
she was like a poor man's Eartha Kitt...then again who is Eartha Kitti remember seeing her on broadway when i was like 8... i am sure she was NOT one of the daughters in Fiddler on the Roof -- a show my parents took me to see at least 5x.
Thanks for reminding me of a last-name post!
DS- Like I said, I know nothing about her. She could be Abert Einstein or she could be a box of rocks. I have no idea.S.D.- According to Wikipedia, she's 64 years young.Spooney- For some reason I recall Mantooth's name coming up before on someone's blog. Not surprising. It a distinctive name.HL- Your guess is as good as mine.DC- I worked behind the scenes of my high school's production of FOTR. That play is burned into my brain from hearing it so many times.GKL- Anytime.
Eartha Kitt played Catwoman on Batman. Well, so did Lee Meriwether, but Eartha was the black catwoman.
I know Leslie, she was in Roots. And she has that name! And that's about it.

Leslie was one of those celebrities known more for her 70s game show appearances than for any actual entertaining she ever did.
I had a meeting with Richard Assberger, a wine buyer. And naturally all my friends started calling him Dick Assberger. Imagine my surprise when I showed up and his real name was Rich Fassbinder. Still bad. ...Not as bad as the blind date my mother set me up on...with Dan Whitehead.
