Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Tony Dow

Answer: Wally Cleaver

Wally Cleaver set a very good example to big brothers everywhere. Not that he and Beaver got along perfectly all the time - that wouldn't have been very realistic - but he did always seem to have Beaver's back. He was cute, popular, athletic, and polite; he also helped his brother navigate through life, whether it be with their parents or other situations. Wally basically grew up on the show, which aired from 1957-1963. In the series finale he was preparing to go to college.

Dow went on to appear in many other classic television shows as a guest, but he took time off from 1965-1968 to serve in the National Guard. After that he worked in construction and studied journalism while continuing to act; he appeared in "The New Leave It To Beaver" (1983-1989), while writing and even trying his hand at directing. Aside from that, Dow was a sculptor, making abstract art out of bronze. He was selected to represent the United States at an art exhibit in Paris in 2008. Tony Dow passed away on July 26, 2022, from liver cancer.
2. Johnny Crawford

Answer: Mark McCain

Mark McCain was the son of the rifleman, Lucas. His mother passed away when he was a young boy, before father and son moved to the ranch in New Mexico Territory. It was apparent that Mark absolutely idolized his father, and much of the story line was based on their relationship, rather than the violence that was seen in other western shows. The show, "The Rifleman", ran from 1958-1963, during which time Johnny was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Emmy.

Prior to portraying Mark McCain, Crawford had been one of the original Mousketeers; afterwards he appeared on many popular classic television programs. In 1992 he founded the Johnny Crawford Orchestra, which played vintage music at events. His struggle with Alzheimer's was well documented on "The Rifleman" website, and he passed away on April 29, 2021.
3. Betty Lynn

Answer: Thelma Lou

Who didn't love Thelma Lou and her ability to tolerate Barney's quirky behavior? Aside from their relationship, however, very little was ever revealed about Thelma Lou. Where did she work? What was her last name? She made somewhat regular appearances on "The Andy Griffith Show" from 1963-1966, until Barney left to join the police force in Raleigh. It was later revealed that she briefly married after that, but in the end, Thelma Lou loved Barney. It was revealed in "Return to Mayberry" (1986) that they did finally marry.

Betty Lynn was an experienced actress before taking the role of Betty Lou, starring in Broadway productions like "Oklahoma!" (1943) and movies, such as "Sitting Pretty" (1948). She continued to act after "The Andy Griffith Show" was discontinued. After retiring from acting in 2006, she moved to Mount Airy, North Carolina, which was said to be the model for the town of Mayberry. She passed away on October 16, 2021, at the age of 95.
4. Dwayne Hickman

Answer: Dobie Gillis

"The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" ran for four years from 1959-1963. Gillis was a teenager living in Central City, a town in the Midwest. In spite of the fact that he did not have many redeeming qualities, he constantly searched for what he thought were the best things in life - a beautiful girlfriend and lots of money. He typically sat on the bench outside his dad's grocery story and talked about his problems rather than acting on them.

Dwayne Hickman benefited from having an older brother, Darryl, in show business. He played many roles before starring in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis", where, at the age of 25, he played a high school student. He continued to act, but also worked as a programming executive at CBS from 1977-1988. After retiring in 2005, Hickman enjoyed doing what he called his true love - painting personalized works of art. He passed away on January 9, 2022, from complications caused by Parkinson's disease.
5. Dawn Wells

Answer: Mary Ann Summers

Mary Ann was one of the castaways on "Gilligan's Island" from 1964-1967. She represented the common person, being a farm girl from Kansas, who won the trip in a contest. If it hadn't been for Mary Ann's knowledge of cooking, along with her common sense, the other members of the group might have perished. She joined the cast after the pilot was made, replacing a character named Bunny, a rather dim-witted blonde secretary.

A former Miss Nevada (1959), Dawn Wells continued to appear on the screen well into the 2000s. She owned a business called Wishing Wells Collections, which made clothes for people with limited mobility, and also founded the Idaho Film and Television Institute, which focused on educational and technical training, as well as economic development in southeastern Idaho. Wells passed away on December 30, 2020, from Covid related complications.
6. Emilio Delgado

Answer: Luis Rodriguez

Of course, Luis ran the Fix-It Shop on "Sesame Street" from 1971-2016; he was one of the first human characters on the program. Although he made his living as a handyman, Luis really wanted to be a writer. After his television marriage to Maria, the two would educate viewers about Hispanic culture and language.

During his time on "Sesame Street" Delgado was the coordinator of the Children's Television Workshop's Bilingual Task Force, which emphasized the teaching of Spanish on the show. He performed at live "Sesame Street" shows, had a recurring role on "Lou Grant" (1977-1982), appeared on other popular television shows, and was a member of a Latin jazz band called Pink Martini. He passed away on March 10, 2022, from multiple myeloma, a form of cancer.
7. Larry Storch

Answer: Corporal Randolph Agarn

Corporal Agarn served in the U.S. Cavalry at Fort Courage in "F-Troop" (1965-1967). He and his business partner, Sergeant O'Rourke, tried to stay under the radar of their hapless commander while they ran all sorts of illegal businesses, like selling souvenirs to the local Native Americans and alcoholic beverages to a saloon in town. This role led to Storch's nomination for the Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series Emmy in 1967.

He enjoyed a long, successful career, continuing to work in the industry, appearing on different television variety shows, as well as movies. Storch also worked as an impressionist and voice over actor. He passed away on July 8, 2022, five months before his 100th birthday.
8. Nichelle Nichols

Answer: Nyota Uhura

Nichelle Nichols played Nyota Uhura on "Star Trek" from 1966-1969, as well as in several movies and other series of the franchise. She was a very capable communications officer, and sometimes took on other responsibilities, such as taking control of the USS Enterprise" if needed. While she began in the television series as a lieutenant, by "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (1982) she was promoted to full commander.

Martin Luther king Jr. once said that he was Nichols' greatest fan. At one point in her career, when she was considering leaving "Star Trek", he convinced her to stay, saying that she was an important role model for both Black children and women. After the original series was cancelled she donated her time to NASA, helping to recruit minorities and women, and was part of a company called Women in Motion. Nichelle Nichols passed away on July 30, 2022.
9. Gloria Henry

Answer: Alice Mitchell

Gloria Henry played the mother of "Dennis the Menace", Alice Mitchell, from 1959-1963. She was a loving mother to her rambunctious son, but didn't seem to make many attempts to modify his behavior besides showing embarrassment when told about his antics. Henry later said in an interview that it was difficult to not be able to yell at Dennis, since she typically yelled at her own children.

Actually, Henry's career as an actress was more successful before her role as Alice Mitchell, as unfortunately, she became typecast and received mostly mother parts. She did appear occasionally on shows like "Dallas" (1998) and "Parks and Recreation" (2012). Gloria Henry passed away on April 3, 2021.
10. Lee Aaker

Answer: Rusty

Rusty appeared on "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin" (1954-1959) as a young boy whose parents had been killed in an Indian raid. Known as Corporal Rusty "B-Company", he and his dog lived with US Cavalry soldiers at Fort Apache, helping them solve their everyday problems.

Lee Aaker was a child star of the 1950s, and appeared in many films before landing the role of Rusty in "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin". He once stated that when he turned twenty-one, the studio gave him a $10,000 check and he became a "sort of a flower child". He later worked as a producer, carpenter, and sports instructor. Lee Aaker suffered a fatal stroke on April 1, 2021.
