Can you name all these Mayberry actors in Bonanza?

Can you recognize these Western guest stars from their time on The Andy Griffith Show?

Bonanza defined the Sixties Western, mixing drama, action and humor and bringing it all to life in living color years before most shows even thought about it. The series had an incredibly long, 14-year run, so it’s only natural that many guest stars who visited the Ponderosa ranch also appeared in countless other shows from that time.

One sitcom that shared a number of actors with Bonanza? The Andy Griffith Show. Multiple actors worked in Mayberry, North Carolina then Virginia City, Nevada or vice versa. Can you recognize all these Andy Griffith actors from their roles in Bonanza?

11/12--I didn't think there was anyone with the first name of Cheerio. That sounded like a breakfast cereal to me.

What's the dealio with the anti-ad-blocker app? It's sad they've been talked into buying that goofy software by some greedy software developer who obviously can't develop useful programs. It'll only turn ad-blocker users off from visiting this site. Why don't they get that simple premise? Sad.

Wear it proudly -- those were better times (far better) and I make no apologies for knowing all of these actors and actresses (and yes, I still say actresses).
