I'm the person who originally told you this (& I am SO sorry I got the date wrong), so I thought I'd let you know that The Name's The Same episode with Robert was JUST on. The point of the guest star is to name a famous person they would like to be in the aptly named 'I'd Like To Be' segment. The panel had a little bit of trouble guessing who Bob wanted to be, but they finally got it when one of them figured out it was not a human, but a dragon! Bob wanted to be Oliver "Ollie" J. Dragon, a puppet from a children's television show. I had never heard about this character, but it was WAY before my time. Here's a link if you'd like to learn more about it -

Again, I'm SO sorry for getting the date wrong. GSN is pretty sketchy about showing things in order. I hope someone was able to tape it for you.

PS- Bob looked quite dapper, with his gray hair and bow tie! He chose to give his winnings to buy equipment for a boy's camp (I think he mentioned it was his? I'm not sure exactly what he said because the audience was cheering while he spoke. Maybe someone who taped it could elaborate).

Sorry if this comment seems a little confused - it's 4AM! I just wanted to get it all down before I forgot.

No worries! I just found out that a friend caught it and is getting it to me on DVD.

I'm just happy you mentioned it - I never heard of the show or episode, so just knowing to look for it is worth a lot.
