Yes/No: Can you guess if these cast members were in the first episode?

Meet cute with all these characters all over again.

There are two ways to start a show. Either you have all your cast characters developed right from the onset, or else you develop meaningful new characters to introduce as your show progresses.

Think you can recall the moment you met some of TV's best characters?

Below, we span classic TV history, from sitcoms to sci-fi, to see if you can spot the characters who came along later on in these essential series. Good luck!
  1. Did Della Street appear in the first episode of Perry Mason?
  2. Did Alice appear in the first episode of The Brady Bunch?
  3. Did Venus Flytrap appear in the first episode of WKRP in Cincinnati?
  4. Did Jo appear in the first episode of The Facts of Life?
  5. Did Charles Winchester appear in the first episode of M*A*S*H?

10 out of 11. Don't know why I thought Venus wasn't in the first WKRP.

Officially I got 9/11, but I accidentally clicked the wrong answer on the question of Winchester and M*A*S*H; I knew he was a later addition. The one I got wrong was Venus Flytrap and WKRP In Cincinnati. I took a wild guess and, just my luck, it was the wrong one.

10/11; easy quiz for me. I only missed Rhoda because I was not a fan and never watched The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

My results say 10/11, but I just went back and looked at all of the answers I gave and they're all correct! What's going on here?!

7 out of 11. I'm kicking myself over WKRP, and I remembered how The Facts of Life got revamped after the first season just as I clicked the answer.

8/11. I don't watch a few of these so had to guess. Wrong, apparently.

When that book was published (during the original run of Star Trek), that was still the reason of Chekov's appearance. It has since been disclosed that, as Dicazi said, it was indeed propaganda.

George Takes mentioned in his autobiography that he and Chekov were originally supposed to alternate on the show. George was filming The Green Berets with John Wayne at the time, so Roddenberry brought in Chekov, initially to alternate with Sulu, but eventually, they appeared together on the show.

I had read they cast Chekov to appeal to the younger (teen) audience, and that it was no accident he had a Beatles like haircut. Same style appeal the MFU used, although it was unintentional on the actor's part.

George Takei (Wiseguy must be asleep at the switch) 😎 LOL!
