 CBS Television Distribution

Bonanza defined the Sixties Western, mixing drama, action and humor and bringing it all to life in living color years before most shows even thought about it. The series had an incredibly long, 14-year run, so it’s only natural that many guest stars who visited the Ponderosa ranch also appeared in countless other shows from that time.

One sitcom that shared a number of actors with Bonanza? The Andy Griffith Show. Multiple actors worked in Mayberry, North Carolina then Virginia City, Nevada or vice versa. Can you recognize all these Andy Griffith actors from their roles in Bonanza?

I never would’ve thought that old lady’s name in question number 11 would be “Cheerio”. lol I mean that’s the name of a breakfast cereal. I wonder which came first, the actress or the breakfast cereal?

Cheerios were originally called Cheerioats. They changed the name because Quaker claimed they were the only product allowed to use the word "oats" in their name. But, in answer to your question, she was born in 1890. Cheerios were introduced in 1941.

Missed #11.
Fun quiz. I’m always amazed, don’t know why, when actors show up on many different shows. I guess that I get the actors stuck in my head in certain roles on certain shows.

Almost all actors in those days were contract players so they were just told where to go for their next job
