Can you guess the TV show from a random person in the opening credits?

Prove you recognize these total strangers from TV.

Each show styles its opening credits in its own unique way, but have you ever thought about all the people just standing around in the background of your most-watched opening credits scenes?

Today, we're focusing on all those strangers who accidentally became some of the most recognizable folks on TV.

Here, we've isolated some of the most memorable background characters from opening credits to see you if you can tell a classic TV show from the extras and random characters used in opening credits scenes. Good luck!
  1. Sixties TV fans will be the best judge of this random person from the opening credits of which show?
  2. We never learned the name of this woman who passes by the setting of which workplace sitcom in the opening credits?
  3. Here's at least one straight-laced soldier at attention in the opening credits of which show?

I got one wrong though I KNEW which \one it was. I just picked the wrong answer.
A defense that never worked for me in school either.

7/10 I missed The jeffersons, Rawhide and Charlies Angels. Back to the T.V. brush up !!!

They should have made the Charlies Angels one harder by including T.J. Hooker in the mix of answers.

Regarding the entrance to the police academy on "Charlie's Angels" in the opening. That same entrance was used for the opening of "The Rookies."

I got 9 out of 10. Missed #9,probably because I just wasn't into the "Charlie's Angels" show.

To miss #6 must mean that your TV was busted for about three decades.... ;)

It was close with That Girl...I was only 7 in the 60's. Got the rest of them tho!

I didn't really know which one.
I guessed "That Girl", bit obviously, I was wrong.
The only one I got wrong too even though I never watched "The Jeffersons" - and I never will either.
As far as I am concerned, they can "Movin' on" - back down where they were from.
With Archie Bunker.
Speaking of which, I love Carrol O' Connor in "In The Heat of The Night".
I can't forget Bubba's initial reaction to Virgil's first appearance as "Chief of Detectives" and now (season 6) he and Virgil are practically the best of friends.
And look at Gillespie as well - he and Harriet DeLong "getting it on".

I missed #9.

10/10. #3 was obviously not F Troop or Hogan's Heroes. I wonder who these extras are or were, professional actors or just everyday people.

Those were real marines marching with Gomer. Many of them died in Vietnam.

10/10! Lucky guess on Rawhide!

8/10; missed Rawhide and Charlie's Angels. I have never seen Rawhide and did not remember the Charlie's Angels opening. I have not watched that show for a long time.

I'm particularly not a western-theme fan, so I never get those questions correct.

10/10 not sure if I'm ashamed or proud?!
