Can you guess which variety show Jim Nabors is on?

The multitalented performer was a frequent guest throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Jim Nabors broke out on The Andy Griffith Show for his endearing portrayal of mechanic Gomer Pyle. The character was so popular, he got his own show – Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.

The spinoff was a chance for Nabors to display even more of his talent. His amazing comedic instincts, not to mention a great singing voice, were a huge asset to the show.

But these talents were already familiar to fans of variety shows at the time. Nabors was a frequent guest on many shows, even dating back to the early '60s, before he was cast on The Andy Griffith Show.

Here are 10 variety shows, game shows and specials that Nabors appeared on. Can you guess which one is which?

9/10...Neat trick showing Carol Burnett on Dinah Shore’s show...not.

Geeze, this quiz is pretty much blind. #3 duh, why choose Dinah, when they are showing him with Carol Burnette. Most pics are pretty much generic. Some of those shows were pretty much before my time, and how can you choose #1 it could be any of the three

He could have become an opera star or starred in a musical; but he became known for that wacky Southern accent.

That wasn't a Southern accent, it was a character voice (Gomer) crafted by Jim.
