I got 10 out of 11. -----I missed #11 because I didn't recognize it being from The Big Valley. I guessed Gunsmoke.

10/11 - the title asks if you can identify the character, not the show. I don’t know one Star Trek from another.

Alvin Brickrock? You mean Alfred Hitchcock, of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.

Just a joke. Alvin Brickrock was the Flintstones version of him.
