Not John Jacob Jingleheimer Smith (or Schmidt, depending on the version). Take 2 DQs.
Correct on J.J. Jingleheimer Schmidt (as I heard it). IQ2 was John Luther Jones, who was given the nickname "Casey" when he joined the Illinois Central Railroad, because there were already several John Joneses in his division. IQ3 was Flavius Claudius Julianus Augustus, known by the Christians as Julian the Apostate, Byzantine Emperor from 361 to 363 C.E.

DQ1: Sitcom created by Norman Lear?
DQ2: Character was an adult?
DQ3: Sitcom set in California?
DQ4: Character was middle-class?

And the other of EH's earned DQs: Series had a notable theme song?

I can't speak for EH or the Prof, but I can’t think of any British sitcom remade as an American series prior to about 1990. Maybe Sanford and Son/Steptoe and Son, but those series ran concurrently (both started in 1962, according to Wikipedia), so it’s hard to say who copied whom. Not to mention Sanford and Son not having a white main character. I thought perhaps Jodie Whittaker from Family Affair as well, but he was a child.

Otherwise, what we have is a comedy character in California in the 60s or 70s, named Jim, James, Jamie, Jodie, Joe, or Joseph. I grew up in the 80s, so I'm a bit spotty about sitcoms from earlier.

There's a few names missing from that list, one of those missing names is the name of the character.

So, earned questions, last guesses, however you want to phrase it, do it before tomorrow.

I was thinking All in the Family, but the timing, setting etc. was wrong. I didn't know, or had forgotten, that Three's Company was an American adaptation of a British show: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_About_the_House

I'm going to guess Abraham and Mary Lincoln, but IQ3 could be Lon Chaney. I'm sure he and Leo resembled each other as newborns.

I feel like I have to clarify Political/Military - L was not an elected official or an official military officer, but was a major impact in both.
