And did they ever actually confirm that Gatsby was a bootlegger? I thought his past was shrouded in mystery, and that bootlegging was just one of the theories that the women at the first party were talking about.

On the show, just the once, but I believe it is implied in the Joey spinoff that they do make it work this time: "All my friends are married and having kids" or something similar.

Was expecting Jerry Seinfeld to be an answer, but then realized that he's not fictional. At least Kramer was included. Quintessential TV show set in NYC (IMHO).

Bonus: If you don’t know which TMNT wields the nunchucks and just start guessing, you’ll get “Don Draper” while trying “Donatello”. (Allowing first names only is very generous!)

That's how I got that answer. I've never seen Mad Men.
