Were these Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. scenes originally in black and white or did we change them?

Did these moments happen in early episodes or later in full color?

Like The Beverly Hillbillies or Lost in Space, Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. started right before the switch to color. All 30 episodes of the first season were broadcast in black and white during the 1964-1965 television season. Everything after that, seasons two through five, were in color.   

Here are some memorable moments and guest stars taken from different seasons of the show. Can you guess which ones we switched from color to black and white and which ones were black and white to begin with?

I got 18/20. I really got 19/20. I said Duke became a Corporal in color. He was a Corporal Slater in Season 5, which is color. They erroneously said black and white.

Well gollllllllllllllllllly! I thought Gomer was an MP in one B&W episode. Maybe he was but I picked the wrong episode. Shazam!!
