Can you name all these classic TV stars in The Flying Nun?

Do you recognize these character actors, famous sitcom faces and future household names?


After Sally Field’s beloved but short-lived Gidget was canceled after one season, it wasn’t long before another show scooped up the talented teen actor. In 1967, The Flying Nun was the latest entry in a trend of Sixties sitcoms with far-out premises: witches and genies caught on, but talking cars? Not so much.

The Flying Nun ran for three seasons, ending in 1970. Airing the last three years of the 1960s meant it could capitalize on a variety of guest stars – up-and-coming actors who would later break out in the Seventies, former child stars from early Sixties sitcoms and even fan-favorite TV hosts and comedians from the time.

Here are ten famous faces who all appeared in The Flying Nun. How many can you name?

  1. You may recognize this actor from her time in Mayberry…
  2. Who is this sitcom dad?
  3. Do you recognize this sitcom star?
  4. She appeared in The Flying Nun before Seventies stardom…
  5. Who is this famous TV face?
  6. Do you recognize this former teen star with a mustache?
  7. Who is this classic TV actor?
  8. He played a doctor in The Flying Nun before his most famous medical role…
  9. Who is this famous comedian?
  10. This TV host was a fitting choice to play Claudio the Clown…
