Just to give you a 101 on The Name's The Same, it's similar to What's My Line, another famous TV game show of the 1950s. Name offers a contestant with the same name of a famous person, object, or action. A panel of three asks questions until they guess correctly or time out.
This episode, from February 10, 1953 offers two Bobs - the younger being a Boy Scout:
The panel has to guess the boy's name...
Bob with show host Robert Q. Lewis
Battle of the horn rimmed glasses
They just had to swap glasses. Of all things coming to mind, I'm wonder what color the glasses are. Yeah, probably black.
Name often included a segment with a celebrity - "I'd like to be." In this case, Bob wishes he could be...
Oliver J. Dragon of the kids show Kukla, Fran and Ollie
In the end, panelist Meredith Wilson guessed correctly. The other two panelists - well, they wrote out their checks for $25 to Bob, who donated the funds to young Bob's Boy Scout troop. In the meantime, I keep watching this darned addictive show and have found myself crying in laughter a few times as a result.
