Can you name these obscure sitcoms that featured huge TV stars?

You know the faces… can you guess the titles?

We all remember and adore these actors from The Andy Griffith Show, M*A*S*H, Gilligan's Island, I Love Lucy and more… but these TV icons also starred in some pretty under-the-radar shows.

Below, you will see 11 super familiar faces in some less familiar settings. These obscure sitcoms aired from the 1950s to the 1980s. It takes a trivia genius to name them all.

Because this one is a little harder, we're giving you a little help. Only the correct title is a real TV show — the other two options we've completely made up. See if you can sniff out the right answers!
  1. Andy Griffith will forever be known as the sheriff of Mayberry, but in 1970 he played an educator at a California private school in this sitcom.

Watch it, bubba. I'm not that old, and I'm hardly boring. In fact, this photo that I'm attaching to this message should give you an idea of what my personality is like, you dig?

10/11. Remembered most of them, even the ones I didn't actually watch. My family loved Dickens and Fenster, part of the appeal of the Addams Family was the chance to watch John Astin again.
