Can you guess which Western these Gilligan's Island stars are on?

Some acted strikingly similar while others were the complete opposite of their Gilligan's Island characters.

Part of the charm of Gilligan's Island is the perfect way the seven cast members each embody their characters. Their differing personalities clash in the best ways. Though they weren’t huge stars before Gilligan’s Island, none of the actors were new to Hollywood when they got cast.

Like many working actors from that time, Dawn Wells, Alan Hale Jr., and the rest popped up in numerous Westerns of the era, both before and after Gilligan's Island. Here are the castaways in various 1960s Old West shows. Can you guess which series each one is on?

All those westerns started out in black and white. Between 1964 and 1968 they all joined color tv

Actually I think the b/w episodes of Gunsmoke were better than their color counterpart. But hey that’s just my preference.

You missed my all-time fave: Alan Hale on The Wild Wild West, as the oldest Secret Service agent ever.
In the tag scene, Alan Hale tells Bob Conrad that he's going to take a long-delayed vacation - on an uncharted desert island!
As the soundtrack blossoms forth with the Gilligan's Island theme, all of us in the audience got the Kick of Kicks ...
Those were definitely The Days!

Lucky guesses, many times reading the backgrounds and other actors for clues.
