7/10 somehow ... but I still only tuned in to see Bobbi Jo (Lori Saunders).

7 for 10. I had such a crush on Meredith growing up, what a looker. The last thing I remember her
on was Magnum PI. She set some kind of record for the number of game shows appeared on
in one year.
I read somewhere that Gunilla Hutton lost her job on the series once it got out she was
Nat King Cole's mistress.

Hello MeTV. You really need to put Gilligan's Island back on Suday afternoons for their 3 Hour Tour. From 2-5pm. 6 30 minute episodes.

''Here's the moment of truth. You got 2 out of 10.'' ''Whether you got them right or wrong, Billie Jo was played by 3 amazing actresses!'' I only got 3 and 4 right, because I went too fast & didn't take my time and think about them.

There were two Bobbie Jo Bradleys', and only one Betty Jo, Linda Kay Henning, Paul Henning's Daughter.

It could have been four actresses that played Billie Jo.

Sharon Tate as the original Billie Jo in a promotional still, but she didn't make it to filming (she was either let go or quit).

Didn’t Gunilla Hutton go on to Hee Haw ?
Also, when I was watching the show I was always watching Bea Benaderet and picturing her opposite Lucille Ball on I love Lucy.

Well did you know Bea ALMOST played Ethel? She was under contact to Burns & Allen so Vivian Vance got the part!
Wendy57 cperrynaples 3 months ago
I knew that Bea and Lucy were actually good friends. Vivian Vance was a great Ethel no doubt. Iconic !!!

5/10. All guesses. Only saw the show a time or two decades ago.

Probably the same reason that there was three Cat women on Batman. The character wasn't important and no one would notice the switches.

Believe me we noticed when Julie was missing.

Julie Newmar was never sexier than when she appeared on two Route 66 episodes.
I went to her website where she also sells autographed pics. I sent her an e-mail
complimenting her on stealing the spotlight from the mega talented Route 66 star
George Maharis, a very difficult thing to achieve. She then sent me a autographed
pic for free. Very nice lady, her IQ is off the charts, she is one of those people
who are so intelligent they can seem a little weird to everyone else.
