Bill Adams and Vic Ramos are listed in the opening credits, which had no character names, but are not in the end credits, which listed the character names. On the other hand, Fuddles was not in the opening credits but listed last in the end credits.
The old KEY VIDEO release (KEY was a division of CBS/Fox Video) had the theatrical ending, which had been altered before release as being too potent for audiences of 1970. However, the later MGM VHS release had the original ending restored where George Segal climbs into bed with Ruth Gordon at the end while the employee of the senior citizens home looks on in disbelief as the door shuts behind Segal. If you liked the altered theatrical ending find the KEY release from the 1980s, but if you prefer the original ending find the MGM tape. NOTE that I don't know what ending is on the DVD; I don't have it and haven't seen it.
