How old were these child stars when their shows ended?

They all started young but many were teenagers by the end!


For children of the 1960s and '70s, the kids on TV were like friends and neighbors. Whether it was Mark McCain ropin’ and ridin’ on The Rifleman or the Brady kids learning to live with their new siblings, these child stars were just as famous, if not more so, than their adult counterparts.

Here are 13 young actors from classic TV. Can you guess how old each person was by the time their show ended?

9/13 Hard to believe Johnny Crawford was 17 when The Rifleman went off the air. He was so small when it started. That means he was 12 when he was running up and jumping into Chuck's arms.

I think that 9/13 is pretty good. The make up people and the script writers probably had to perform gymnastics to try to fit the kids into the story line. And we now know that Ron Howard has hair issues, his hair dresser must have had to have been very creative to cover up the increasing receding hairline.

Not going to drink a quart of Buttermilk to drown my sorrows.
