Did these TV characters appear in the opening credits?

Point out all the ones who truly got the star treatment.

Throughout TV history, billing has been a big question for talented actors who join the cast of hit shows. But then again, there are dozens of shows that never show a single star at all in the opening credits.

Think you can pick out the TV stars who truly got the star treatment and actually appeared in the opening credits of their own shows? 

Make sure you take a beat to think of the show, its theme and any other clues your memory may have stored to help you pass this crazy credits quiz. Good luck!
  1. On The Andy Griffith Show, did we see Barney Fife in the opening credits?
  2. On M*A*S*H, did we see Radar O'Reilly in the opening credits?
  3. On The Brady Bunch, did we see Alice Nelson in the opening credits?
  4. On The Addams Family, did we see Uncle Fester in the opening credits?
  5. On Bewitched, did we see Endora in the opening credits?
  6. On Petticoat Junction, did we see Uncle Joe Carson in the opening credits?
  7. On The Facts of Life, did we see Mrs. Garrett in the opening credits?
  8. On Cheers, did we see Sam Malone in the opening credits?
  9. On WKRP in Cincinnati, did we see Johnny Fever in the opening credits?
  10. On Perry Mason, did we see Della Street in the opening credits?
  11. On Bonanza, did we see Adam Cartwright in the opening credits?
  12. On The Twilight Zone, you hear him, but did we ever see Rod Serling in the opening credits?

I challenge the one I got wrong! Johnny Fever DID appear in the opening credits of WKRP in Cincinnatti! It was only the first season that just had shots of Cincinnatti. Seasons 2-4 showed shots of the cast.

I missed the WKRP one--even though I was right. I remembered Johnny's air-guitaring.

maybe not the first year but there are plenty of shows where camera pans to a four-shot of Della, Paul, Hamilton and Tragg all behind the table on the right as the judge (and camera) sees it. I know because it's a contrived pose, DA and cops never at that table let alone on right hand side (btw: note that this puts Della as first billing after Perry)

hey you people who put this quiz together Della Street is in the opening of Perry Mason seasons 1 and 2 also with Paul Drake and Burger and Tragg

Apparently MeTV doesn't think so.

UNCLE FESTER is kooky i believe (pix showing when theme says "kooky"... like cousin it is "petite") arghhhhhhh now i gotta watch the munsters!
QazWiz QazWiz 25 months ago
nope was wrong, Fester is covered in bomb black marks as song says "neat" Gomez is kooky, morticia is ookie, Grandma is pitite and lurch is sweet. plus there's a seven shot of "whole" family (cousin it NOT in credits) interspersed throught opening credits AND during entire instrumental closing credits.
