I should have chosen the frontal lobotomy

Just a personal feeling but lists bore me.... though PMB does'em well.
Still, learned a new name as a result of one question.

I liked it but there were a few you left out...maybe a part two is in the works?

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Good, difficult puzzle. Thanks!

This was a great puzzle. It would have been even greater if I knew how to spell and to tell the difference in certain letters of the alphabet!

Fun puzzle anyway and I hope there's at least one or two more coming along the same theme.

Maybe because I'm a relatively disinterested party on who did or didn't make the cut (other than myself, and I didn't get any puzzle I could have shown up in), I did enjoy this one. I liked the way the author meted out each puzzle's heartthrobs (though I do have one observation --not criticism-- that I'll make after the puzzle ends), and it was fun to see who got bumped up together, especially with respect to that upcoming comment of mine.

I feel the same way about this one as I do the "fours" or the "three alike and one different" WPs: It would have been so much more entertaining had there been a more concrete link for the different groupings -- all pop idols or sitcom actors or Olympians or silent movie stars.

Good puzzle, but thought the title was misleading.

Not that it was hard to figure out on the first puzzle though!

agree with Lamizell Not a bad puzzle but her suggestions would have made it more interesting

agree with Sandracam I spent the whole puzzle saying to myself, he's not a teen throb though they all were heartthrobs

That was the only thing that threw me: I kept getting hung up on the part of the title "teen," which made me thing teen heartthrob that would appeal only to teenagers. If I had just focused on hunk...well, that's a horse of a different feather.

This one took me forever - one in particular - I had three of the four and thought and thought - wrote down letter combos - after nearly 20 minutes of my staring at it my wife walks in and says "that last one looks like Bobby Sherman" - I politely thanked her then smacked myself about a thousand times for not getting it.

Well, the title was supposed to say "Teen Idols, Hunks and Heartthrobs" but the comma wouldn't fit in the 25 character limit. I didn't realize it would confuse so many people so much. Maybe it would have still been just as confusing.

As for how to group them, I agonized with types of person, sports or movie stars, singers or actors, teen idol or grown-up hunk, etc. I finally decided on the birth years because I found it intriguing to realize how different the various men of each era were.

bobby sherman was the one I did not know.
Must be a US star from an earlier era; but lost on me.

Oh Bobby Sherman was soooo dreamy!

The one I struggled with the most was actually pretty easy: Hugh Jackman. I had "???? ?a???an" and a (nearly) uncontrollable urge to write in Eric Cartman.

Grouping by birth date ... Sploofizz, you stole my comment! Especially on that puzzle with Bobby Sherman, Harrison Ford, Robert Redford and Sean Connery, can we play that "One of these things is not like the other" game?

I had a kid sister back around 1970,, so I knew very well who Bobby Sherman was ... the name of Redford was the one that took me longest on that puzzle.

Anyway, what I found interesting about that foursome is that Sean and Bob had such staying power, as does Harrison, but he was nowhere on my radar till well into the 70s at least, It may have been Empire Strikes Back and Raiders that did it for me, though I'd seen him in American Graffiti, but was dazzled by the names elsewhere in the cast.

Compare that to Mr. Sherman, who'd jumped the shark before American Graffiti, and of course, that was before Fonzie did. Who knows, maybe he'll appear in a WTHAI!
