Time's up! Wanted Dead Or Alive was the name of that popular Western drama.

In 1972, Normal Lear produced an American TV series that was based a British series called Steptoe & Son that featured the exploits of a white cockney junk dealer named Albert Steptoe and his middle-aged son, Harold Steptoe.

What was the name of Lear's version about an irascible Los Angeles junk dealer and his son?

While we're waiting, here's a question for you: On the 80's series, WKRP In Cincinnati, Les Nessman (played by Richard Sanders) always wore something on a different part of his body in each episode as a running gag. What did Les wear?

Tom Selleck tested for the part, but rumor has it that it was pretty bad. Harrison Ford will always be Indiana Jones :angry:

In the popular TV cop show Dragnet, who played Sgt. Joe Friday's partner, Bill Gannon?

The robot character had no name, but he was played by Robby The Robot.

This 1962 TV show was a situation comedy series about a two carpenters who work for the Bannister Construction Company. Archie (played by Marty Ingels) is a swinging-single guy who drives his married buddy Harry (played by John Astin of The Addams Family) crazy (with jealousy, perhaps?)

What was the name of this series that ran for only one season?

What? No one dares to challenge the Trivia Master? In case you were curious, the show in question was the highly underrated I'm Dickens, He's Fenster.

Here's one from the 70's for you:

The character Peggy Fair in this series (played by Gail Fisher) is a secretary who was born and raised in Los Angeles. She is a widow, extremely efficient, and a former Department of Motor Vehicles employee. She now works as the full-time employee of an Armenian private eye who lives and works at 17 Paseo Verde Drive in West Los Angeles. She has a small son named Toby.

What was the last name of the Armenian detective who employed Peggy? Hint: It's also the name of this hard-hitting detective drama :weeee:

Guess I'm making these too hard for you guys . . . the answer is Mannix.

[Trivia] Gail Fisher was also the first African-American to have a speaking part in a TV commercial on nationwide television (All detergent, 1970)

Here's an easy one for you: Who was the narrator of the 1960's TV series The Fugitive?

Well, it wasn't that your questions were too hard, Earth. I was trying to give others a chance to answer!

The answer to the last one is William Conrad, who also narrated the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. I think that was a question earlier...

In the later years of Gunsmoke, this academy award winning actress had a guest starring role...
