Many of the answers were obvious from the surrounding characters. I could kick myself for not recognizing Matlock (Andy Griffith) in question #16.

13/17. Would have been 14/17, except I forgot the trick to taking a MeTV quiz: if "ALF" or "The Twilight Zone" is one of the choices, that's the answer...

Hesseman was on a lot of shows when I was a kid. As a member of the Committee comedy group on the Smothers Brothers show, as a counterpoint to Joe Friday on a face-off TV show on Dragnet, and as patient on the Bob Newhart show who gets rejected by the rest of his therapy group when he comes out as gay.
In the Dragnet episode, he's listed in the credits as "Don Sturdy."
