9/10. Fell for the Billy Gray inclusion, very sly.

8/10! Wouldn't that be weird if Maynard had been in Mayberry? Yes, Bob Denver was on TAGS, but I would love to have seen the reaction when Andy told Maynard he would have to WORK off his sentence!

I knew Denver said it as Maynard, I didn't think he said it as Gilligan!

9/10. On #10, another answer could be Billy Gray. {even though that was the name of one of Opie's friends.} Like Ronny Howard being the actor's name that played Opie, Billy Gray was the name of the actor that played Bud Anderson, on FATHER KNOWS BEST.
I got stumped on that question, along with #5. ☺️

Excuse me, but what happened to my post about Elinor Donahue, who was Bud's sister and Andy's girlfriend?
