I recognise George Burns' face but his name doesn't ring any bells. Someone save me a google trip.... No idea who Stamos and Mandell are, i guess I missed whatever they are famous for, they look like actors so could be I didn't watch wahtever they were in.

Both TV actors, Stamos is probably best known for Full House and ER, Mandell as the host of Deal or No Deal.

Mandel had a really goofy standup routine where he acted like a little kid with a weird voice. Best known now for being a judge on America's got Talent.

George Burns was one of the old-school comic/vaudeville showmen in the vein of Milton Berle. He was famous for like 60 years, and had his own show in the 50's. I have no idea why he is listed among "1980's celebrities." He is an 80's celebrity in the same way that Harrison Ford is a 2010's celebrity.

In the 1980s, George Burns was famous for being ridiculously old, still funny, and for smoking cigars and drinking. I'm not a George Burns expert but I would guess that he was much more famous in the 80s than he was in the 50s.

Johns Stamos was on the original Full House - He was Uncle Jesse. He was also known for being a good looking guy, briefly married to Heather Locklear, I think. Howie Mandel was a stand up comic who is probably best known as the host of Deal or No Deal.

Accept Billy Crystal for Howie Mandel? HAHAHA, I could have sworn that's who it was. Missed him, Weaver, and Willis. I would complain about the Willis picture, but it looks like most aren't having too much trouble with it.

I only had 19 pics display. I thought I was done and it said I have 19/20. I gave up. Looking at the results, seems I was missing Paula Abdul. I probably wouldn't have gotten her anyway. Terrible picture of Stamos; I finally guessed it was him.
