So I may have put myself in a rabbit hole based off one comment from a random Youtuber where they mentioned this TV show and how long running it was. This made me wonder how many of the cast and crew are still alive considering it ran on TV and radio from 1955 to 1975. It also had some TV movies in the 90's.

 

Radio series ran from 1952 to 1961. The television series ran for 20 seasons from 1955 to 1975, and lasted for 635 episodes.

 

Some records for those wondering who like these things: Longest-running, primetime, live-action series on television (tied with Law & Order with 20 seasons each) until September 2019. However it still remains the longest-running, primetime, live-action series of the 20th century.

 

The following either acted in, produced or directed the TV show, radio show or TV movie and are still alive.

It will be interesting from the the vantage point of the chair in which I sit to see the treatment of this thread juxtaposed with the thread I made for Sanford & Son.  I've no problem with a thread like this.  But others did.  Let's see if they are consistent in their thought process, or just consistent being cunts.
