Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can recognize all these Sixties child stars in The Rifleman

There were sitcom stars, Disney kids and children with famous parents!

 Peter Rodgers Organization

The Rifleman broke ground showing the bond between a single father and his son out on the frontier. Having a young star set this Western classic apart from most of the other cowboy shows at the time.

It also created opportunities for storylines about schooling and family that featured Fifties and Sixties child stars who were either already famous from other shows or were about to make a name for themselves in future roles.

Here are 10 young actors seen in The Rifleman. How many do you recognize?

10/10, not a millennial or a boomer. They underestimated the amount and the selection of reruns that were on in the afternoons during the '70s.

9 for 10.
Teddy Rooney was great at playing brats.
One of the saddest stories in Hollywood is how his dad Mickey was tortured in his
last years when he was frail. His wife and her drug addled sons robbed him
of all but 18 grand. They beat him repeatedly and robbed Mick's kids of
their inheritance.

10/10. #1 was tough. Kidding. The Mickey Rooney kid you tell by his teeth. Karen Sue Trent ended her acting career in the very last episode of the Rifleman. She was stuck in quicksand. Bet u didn’t know that.👍
