Can you match these doctors to the right Westerns?

More than just physicians — there were villains, snake oil salesmen and a certain gunslinging dentist.

Whether they were a part of the main cast or not, there are countless episodes of classic Westerns that feature a doctor in an important role. After all, the West was a dangerous place where sometimes the landscape itself could hurt you as much as any gunslinger.

The title “Doctor” or “Doc” was also given out a little more freely back then. Here are some of our favorite doctors from TV Westerns, though not all are actual physicians. Can you guess which show each one is from?

Watch Bonanza on MeTV!

Okay movie quizzers. Get ready for this weeks MQ and coming attractions. You'll see previews, Bonus movie coming and a video entertainment up for early viewing. Your best guesses and enthusiasm needed come Friday. The Pillow Talk is that Texasluva is showing Some Like It Hot with 12 Angry Men but that would be 20 Million Miles From Earth that he is really going to anyone of those. Think again. Don't listen to the street talk. You get what I have locked up in a huge vault with the combination only known to me. With my movie quizzes going down in Nano or is it Pico seconds one can't be to careful. Let's start this off with Entertainment just to get the juice's flowing for what else is to come.

76 Trombones (Full Scene) - The Music Man (1962).

We March around to find Bonus movie #2.
The Blob (1958) 1 hr 26 min of craziness and fun.

Now Bonus Movie #1 is a secret but one of the best movies of the 21st century. One of those 9.0 off the chart types.

So what is in ones weekend future.
Backdraft a Ron Howard production (1991)
Kurt Russell-Donald Sutherland- Robert De Niro

007 I think it will be.
Dr. No (1962)

Synonyms for doofus (funny list) I was able to post it but thought better of it after seeing some of the words. So you can go here below if wished. Some are British words chosen.
Loved all the synonyms!
I thought you would. I had a good laugh remembering them. I remember a few old tv shows and also the movie Die Hard the word Booby was used. The big mouth guy using that phrase to Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) in a scene. Though Hans ended up killing him anyway to get back at John McClane (Bruce Willis). I think that if Hans knew what the word meant he would have killed on the spot. Though there is some confusion as to if he said Booby, bobbe, bubby or because Ellis (Hart Bochner) was on a coke related trip and meant some sort of insult. His total undoing by opening his mouth instead of shutting his yap. Die Hard has many funny one-liners you can check out.

On Alan Rickman was one of my favorite bad guys 80's to early 2000's. Die Hard, Quigley Down Under, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and others.
Alan Rickman was the best! Funny movie.

10/12 that #12 Star Trek question was unfair in my opinion. Since when was Star Trek considered a western themed show?

June Lockhart also played a doctor in Petticoat Junction (they needed another character at the Shady Rest after Bea Benedaret passed).
