Can you still recognize these former TV child stars all grown up?

The facial hair might throw you off.

If child stars are lucky enough, they chug along until they are just plain old adult stars. More of them stick around than you might think.

Every performer on this list was a big deal at some point in the 1950s, '60s, '70s or '80s. And they were still working in the new millennium. 

So, can you recognize them? Try to match each actor to the show that made them a star!

10/11, missed Jay "Dennis" North. Oh, and Clint Howard DID have his own show: "Gentle Ben" with Dennis Weaver and a grizzly bear.

Is it odd that Eve Plumb looks like Catherine Hicks?

10/11 which is not all that bad.
I am embarrassed to say I knew #9 because I have actually SEEN that film.
FOr research purposes only, you understand.
