THE DANNY THOMAS SHOW/ABC/CBS/1953-65/ABC/1970-71
*(Danny Thomas) Danny Williams, a Lebanese-American nightclub entertainer living in New York City with his wife Margaret (Jean Hagen) and his children Rusty (Rusty Hamer) and Terry (Sherry Jackson/Penney Parker). When Danny's first wife died, he married Kathleen Daly, a hot-tempered Irish lass. Angela Cartwright starred as her daughter Linda, from a former marriage. Veteran character actor Hans Conried frequently appeared as Uncle Tonoose, the loud-mouthed patriarch of the family, who favored the ways of the old country. His Lebanese nickname was "Hashush-al-Kabaar" meaning "The Man who made a monkey out of a camel".

M*A*S*H*/CBS/1972-83
**(Jamie Farr) Corporal Maxwell "Max" Klinger, a Lebanese-American from Toledo, Ohio who was stationed overseas in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War (M*A*S*H unit #4077). His total dislike for war drove him to wear a dress with hopes of being transferred stateside on grounds of mental deficiency. His efforts were in vein, however. Ironically, at the conclusion of the war, he fell in love with a Korean farm girl and remained, for a time, in Korea to help search for her family. Finally, they relocated to River Bend, Missouri.
