Today is INTERNATIONAL PUZZLE DAY! Let's celebrate!

What was Tim Matheson's first acting job? (Hint: Think television.)

The following groups each have something in common. Do you know what it is?
01. {Kokomo by the Beach Boys; Don't Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin}
02. {Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News, Double Back by ZZ Top}

We'll reveal all next weekend, but for now, let's peek into THE ANSWERS BOX and discover the results of our TV THEME QUIZ from last weekend's Puzzle Corner.

01. The theme to The Greatest American Hero was officially entitled "Believe It Or Not" and sung by Joey Scarbury.
02. "The Unknown Stuntman " was sung by The Fall Guy's star Lee Majors.
03. Glenn Miller and Herbert Hoover were both mentioned by name in "Those Were The Days", the theme song to All In The Family.
04. "Suicide Is Painless" was the title to the theme from M*A*S*H.
05. Believe it or not, the most successful TV theme song (to date) has been the Bill Hayes version of The Ballad of Davy Crockett, spending a month at the top of the charts in 1955. Davy Crockett star Fess Parker's own rendition of the song only made it to # 6 around the same time.
