Seems that's not the only cartoon where he had a mustache. I did a Google search yesterday because I was curious, but obviously couldn't use the answer it turned up.

Re: TV Series Trivia

Those are correct. So for 13, that still leaves the final spinoff. The full title for 17 was Trapper John, M.D. and for 15, it's specifically the animated series. The interesting thing with 23 is that Doom Patrol is also set on Earth-9 according to the Arrowverse, but the Doom Patrol as seen on Titans (at least the first season; I stopped watching after that) doesn't quite match the team as seen on their own series.

I hadn't known about that one, but it wouldn't have fit the S theme, whereas SNL did.

True. Just noting that it seems that Robin having a mustache isn't as uncommon as we thought.

Definitely an unusual pattern. It's fun when bits of trivia turn up by accident. While flipping through the final (2007) edition of The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946-Present (which I use to jog my memory of shows I'm familiar with) I stumbled upon an obscure superhero show I never heard of before, whose characters will make it into my next indie superhero collage.

Those are all correct. The movie Underdog  while named Shoeshine wasn't a shoeshine boy per se and was a family pet, so a lot got changed. That just leaves what's probably the hardest question:
13. This series had many actors, including some of the lead actors, playing fictionalized versions of themselves.
