Mrs. Freddie Prinze, Jr. (whose real name you’ll be quizzed on later) is starring with Robin Williams in a new CBS show this fall called “The Crazy Ones.” (OK, we’ll give you a hint: She has three names). She, of course, starred in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” from 1996 to 2003. And that got us thinking about how common it was for child TV stars of decades past to be known publicly by three names. Whether they had hyphenated first names or prominent middle names, their full names sure were a mouthful to say.
So let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? We challenge you to get all three names right when guessing the correct name of each popular child TV star, whose shows first aired in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. And, while we’re at it, we tell you what those stars are doing today.
