Williams, that is.....

Starting July 5th, 'As The World Turns' goes on the road to Branson, Missouri, where Gwen will meet Andy Williams at his Moon River Theatre. Looks like everybody wins with that bit o' synergy.....

Mr. Williams will be on the 9th and 10th of July as well, but I'm not sure if he'll be crooning....

This isn't the first time Andy Williams has appeared as himself in Toobworld, and I'm not even talking about his own variety show or the many others (as well as music specials and talk shows) that he's done over the years.

"The Larry Sanders Show" .... Himself (1 episode, 1998)
- As My Career Lay Dying

"The Muppet Show" .... Himself (1 episode, 1980)
- Episode #4.22

(Hey, if you interact with Muppets as if they were alive, this counts as a fictional show and not a variety show!)

"America 2-Night" .... Himself (1 episode, 1978)
- Celebrity Night

"The Jack Benny Program" .... Himself (1 episode, 1964)
- Andy Williams Show

"The Joey Bishop Show" .... Himself (1 episode, 1964)
- Andy Williams Visits Joey

I included Jack Benny's show because it was a strange mix of variety and Jack's "life" in Toobworld. And looking over the list from the, I could have sworn he did an episode of one of the 'Lucy' shows, but I guess I was just assuming what could have been a natural.....

(Not that the IMDb is always trustworthy!)

At any rate, with just his appearances on 'America 2Nite', 'The Larry Sanders Show' and on Joey Bishop's sitcom, and added to the upcoming appearances on 'As The World Turns', Andy Williams has an impressive handful of credits for the League of Themselves.....
