Out of all the members of the Rat Pack, Sammy Davis Jr. was perhaps the most game for a quick television appearance. Sure, Joey Bishop had his own sitcom, but Sammy popped up on all sorts of shows for decades, from the Fifties through the Eighties.

You could also spot him in soaps, comedies, action hours, and dramas. Variety shows, too, naturally. He was always up for a little song and dance.

Let's see if you can place him. We gathered images from his memorably classic TV appearances. Try and guess the shows!

  1. He was Tip Corey in ''Two Ounces of Tin.''
