Guess the TV Western from 3 names (or less) in the opening credits

A quiz for straight shooters only.

TV Western fans know each show had a star, a sidekick, and plenty of other characters mixed in for intrigue or comic relief. You know the subtle differences and quirky characters of these shows because you watched them mosey across your screen when TV Westerns dominated television.

Nowadays, most folks might not know Sheb Wooley from Chuck Connors, but you do, and you can point straight to the TV Western that featured these dramatic character actors in some of their finest performances.

You got 10 out of 10
No doubt about it, you're the straightest shooter in the Western TV audience.

I got 8 of 10, and it said looks like you fell asleep during some of these westerns. 8 out of 10 should get a better rating then that, I could see it if i got 6 or less correct. I missed the big valley and wagon train, both shows I watched and still watch. The questions were so easy that I think I got a bit cocky for two of the questions :)

Yeah, I "fell asleep" on the two out of ten I missed. Those were the westerns that put me to sleep.

Got all 10. I've been watching several of these shows recently and frequently on MeTV and a few of those "other" stations that I haven't got the...GRIT to mention on THIS website.

In my opinion, METV needs new shows, get rid of Charlies Angels. on Sundays do more morning shows instead of kid suff, young adults don't watch tv that early in the morning

10 out of 10! We need more of these shows on Me-TV! I've been watching Laramie on GRIT and I can sometimes catch the Lone Ranger on the Cowboy Channel (sister channel to RFD).

I forget the station, but it shows Roy Rogers, followed by Lone Ranger. You can see episodes of roy rogers and the lone ranger on youtube, where I get all my oldies music :)

8/10; not too bad for someone who is not a fan of westerns.

9/10 I missed only one out 10 of the first name of the actors. Humm, Who really watches the open credits? I watch for the interaction of the characters and the stories. I probably could get 10/10 of the character names though.

5/10.Says"Looks like I fell asleep during some of these".Fell asleep?I was never even awake for most of the thousands of westerns they made in the 50's and 60's.As far as i'm concerned,the 431 episodes of "Bonanza" would have been enough for me.It took years for me to even know some of these shows even existed.I thought I at least of heard of them all,but there were still some more in this quiz I never heard of.Sheesh!!!, TV must have been like 50% westerns between like 1955 and 1970.

Bang Bang! 10/10. Was the Glenn in the Lone Ranger question Glenn Strange? He was in the first two episodes playing an outlaw named Cavendish, but only appeared in a few more episodes afterwards. He was Miss Kitty's bartender in Gunsmoke later on.
DaleGarland Barry22 27 months ago
Yep, it was Strange. According to IMDb, he was in 8 episodes of TLR from 1949 to 1955. But he was in 239 episodes of Gunsmoke from 1961-1973 as Sam the bartender.
