    It happened really early in television history -- surprisingly so.

    It's the same as the punishment for allowing yourself to see Robin Hood, played by Kevin Costner, which is, you get to see Costner as Robin. Probably against the Geneva Convention...

    Ok, here goes....
    Ray Harryhausen, the legendary producer and stop motion animator did appear in front of the camera on occasion. Name one.
    Also- How about the most famous uncredited performance in motion picture history?

    So you don't know. I give you a clue, it happened 'many, many, many, many years ago.'

    What famous Oscar winning character actor starred in both a popular movie with John Wayne and a classic movie with Humphrey Bogart?

    The often repeated, incorrect tale is that it was on The Flintstones, but it was actually a TV series from 1947 that most people have never heard of called The Mary Kay and Johnny Show.

    It was known to happen. I've seen evidence that there are good movies going all the way back to the 60s, even.

    This I definitely don't know off the top of my head, apart from documentaries.

    I'm not sure how we'd settle on a consensus of "most famous" uncredited performance. This might be a situation where me being something of a film historian would work against me, because there's this whole early period in cinema where actors weren't credited by name, and this is when the first movie stars were born (cinematically), including Mary Pickford. I'm curious what performance you have in mind.

    I wonder if this only applies to one actor, given the way the studio system era worked, in particular. Walter Brennan for sure worked with both, and Brennan won multiple Oscars.

    One I recognized the instant I saw it was a cameo as a doctor in Spies Like Us.

    Heh, really famous. James Earl Jones is uncredited for Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back.

    That's definitely a great example.
