Working as a desk officer for a large police department, it is my opinion that Adam-12 was and still is the most realistic cop show on television. The big difference was that the vast majority of cops have never had the need to fire their weapon in the performance of their duties.

#3 is technically "True", not False. On the episode of Gidget where Martin Milner plays the Big Kahuna, Kent McCord said he plays one of the guys in the crowd. (Re: McCord's tribute speech at Milner's memorial (see youtube). I know my Milner, ha ha!

According to https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6334297/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm , Martin wound up in Route 66 after the death of the original choice, Robert Morris.

It was news to me.
Robert Morris did appear with Maharis in the back door pilot for Route 66 which was an episode of the TV series The Naked City.

Question #3 is technically incorrect. They both appeared in the same episode of “Gidget.” Though Kent was an extra, they worked in the same scenes together.

Question 5 says he was on dragnet once, it was actually 6 times. Finding a lot of mistakes on these quizzes lately.

Though he may have been on many times, I thought he only appeared once as “Officer Malloy”.

He was on the 1950s black and white version of Dragnet 6 times. He was only on Dragnet 1967, that is more closely associated with Adam-12, once.
I once rented the first season of the 1950s Dragnet, only remember seeing "Marty Milner" (that's how he was billed) in one episode. He played a teen who was peddling porn to his classmates.

It was kinda funny, I'm like "that boy looks familiar but I can't think who he is". But I'd previously rented Adam-12 to show my 12-year-old son, and he said "that's Officer Malloy!" Sure enough, the credits confirmed it.
