NOTE: yes, we know many of the Special Guests are famous for more than what we list. Because this is a historical listing, we've tried to show the TV program the person was known for at the time. For example, Roger Moore was known for his TV show The Pretenders in 1972, long before he did the James Bond films.

Last column in the above charts is the television network / station.
