What show is ''The Millionaire,'' Jim Backus in?

Can you correctly name the many series Jim Backus, perhaps better known as Thurston Howell III, is in?

To many, actor Jim Backus will forever be tied to his "millionaire" businessman character Thurston Howell III from Gilligan's Island. But Backus' career goes far beyond being a shipwrecked castaway. 

His career began in film during the late Forties, eventually evolving to the small screen with his own show and countless guest star appearances. 

Take a look at just some of the shows Backus was featured in, and try to guess the correct series! 

Good luck!

8/10. No “I Married Joan?” One of his best.
Yep, and I can connect this show to GI AND TBB, but I won't bore you with the details!

I got stu-pid on the first one, and then flubbed the Westerns as I usually do - except #9 which I figured out from the Pernell Roberts imitator.
BTW, Jim Backus was also in a 1959 episode of "The Millionaire", in which he is the *recipient* of a million dollars. Maybe he changed his name to "Howell" and that was the start of the fortune! [grin]
