Can you tell if this Sixties TV show was a comedy or a drama?

Do a title and a promo photo give you the answer?

They say you can't judge a book by its cover. But can you judge a TV show by its title and a promotional photo?

We hope to answer that question. Well, you are going to answer that question.

We've gathered a dozen television series from the 1960s. Can you tell if they were a comedy or a drama? Perhaps you were lucky enough to have watched them, so you might just remember the answers. Either way — good luck!

I thought I knew my 60's TV… apparently THAT score says otherwise.

10/12. Anyone remember the reboot of Burke's Law they tried in the late 80s or early 90s?

Forgive a little morbidity, but Inger Stevens, who played "Katie, the Farmer's Daughter," suffered from depression and took her own life in 1970.

Most MeTV fans know her from "The Hitchhiker" episode of TZ! How sad it was that she met her own hitchhiker only a decade later!

That we had to even ask the question probably explains why these shows are semi-forgettable!

This time I wish to register a formal complaint against this quiz, because I feel that I was cheated on here. You see, in order to find out whether each show on this quiz was either a "COMEDY" or a "DRAMA", I logged on to the IMDb(Internet Movie Database) website, and looked up the shows's titles on there, and their bio would appear and it would show them whether they're comedies or dramas, and that way I could make my choices on here. However on Question #'s 2 and 9, I got them wrong. I chose "COMEDY" for both questions, and the answer for both of them was "DRAMA", even though it said on their IMDb bios that they were both comedies. And on #10, the bio on IMDb didn't show which one it actually was, so I simply took a guess, and I got it wrong anyways, so I'm not including that one in my complaint.

Bus Stop the movie is considered a comedy, Bus Stop the tv show was a dramatic anthology.
