George O'Hanlon plays a news reporter in the movie "Rocky"

Janet Waldo guest starred in the I Love Lucy episode "The Young Fans", and also had a small part in the Andy Griffith episode "A Wife For Andy". Also had a reoccurring role as the ditzy secretary on Valentine's Day.

There's also a number of films throughout the 30s and 40s where she had these walk-on bit parts with no dialogue. Trying to spot her though is like trying to spot Dick Miller in an old B-movie. You're literally playing "Where's Waldo?". :p

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

Alan Reed had a supporting role in the film adaptation of Truman Capote's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" He played a convicted felon who was either an uncle or father to Holly Golightly.

John Stephenson played a number of Luftwaffe officers on "Hogan's Heroes".

I'd post clip links to YouTube, but I'm too tired right now...

ALso George has guest starred in the I LOVE LUCY episode with Superman. And I think 1st voice actor of Betty Rubble also appeared on the I LOVE LUCY show. She played timid/shy person who was in love with a neighbor of Lucy's. I don't remember the details.

You mean Bea Benadaret? She was also a member of the cast of the radio show "My Favorite Husband" which was the precursor to "I Love Lucy."

And on TV, played Blanche Morton on Burns & Allen for eight seasons in the 1950s, before the series' head writer, Paul Henning, cast her first in his two early 1960s CBS sitcoms, "The Beverly Hillbillies" and then "Petticoat Junctiom".

My personal favorite, as far as seeing cartoon voice actors in live-action -- A 1955 episode of The Jack Benny Program. Along with semi-regulars Mel Blanc and Frank Nelson, the episode not only includes Jerry Hausner -- Waldo from the Mr. Magoo series and Blab in the first few Snooper episodes of The Quick Draw McGraw Show -- but also Harry Shearer (who gets top billing on the guest cast list).
