Are these kid guest stars from The Waltons or Gunsmoke?

Did these farm kids, runaways and little swindlers stop by Dodge City or Walton’s Mountain?


An orphaned child with nowhere to turn seeks help. A stern father insists his son stay and work on the farm instead of going to school. A mischievous youngster takes advantage of a family's hospitality.

Do these sound like Waltons episodes to you? But wait, isn’t at least one of those from Gunsmoke? Needless to say, both shows featured standout child actors who became the focus of certain episodes.

We’ve compiled young guest stars from both classic series. Can you guess which show each kid is in?

10/10 Nailed it! :D
#8 has one of my favorite moments in Gunsmoke in it. One of the town’s folk tries to get illiterate Festus to agree that his lack of schooling didn’t hurt him any, and while Festus agrees he then states can’t help but wonder if his life would’ve been better with an education. Doc Adams becomes immensely proud of Festus at that moment. That’s one of the few times Doc Adams and Festus were both on the same page. Always warms my heart when I see it lol

8/10....the one with Ron Howard tricked me because is also in an episode of the Walton's!!
True. Background does count in these quizes. The Waltons episode was in the woods “in Virginia” while the Gunsmoke episode was in the desert. While I honestly thought the two episodes were fairly close together, IMDb tells me that they were actually 5yrs apart. 1969 for Gunsmoke & 1974 for the Waltons. Ron definitely had a baby-face for a while 😆
