Can you tell what show Burt Mustin is in?

A rather late start in Hollywood didn't slow down the career of Burt Mustin.

The acting career of one Burt Mustin, the memorable character actor of several classic television shows, got his start in television a little bit later than most actors do. 

He was a car salesman, amateur actor and employee at the Better Business Bureau. It all led him down a path that saw his Hollywood career start at the age of 67! 

Though his career started after an already full life of work, Mustin has 200 acting credits to his name, per IMDb.com. 

From appearances in Westerns to sitcoms, can you tell what show this classic television fan-favorite is in?

  1. In this scene, Mustin's character is arrested in...
  2. Mustin was in more than 10 episodes of what series as a firefighter?
  3. What series is he the character of Donald Parker?
  4. What show is he in here?
  5. How about here?
  6. What Western is Mustin in here, as the character Jake Smith? He played in several episodes of several Western series!
  7. How about his Western, where he fell asleep on a horse?
  8. What show is Mustin in here?
  9. Here he pays for a newspaper in...
  10. Here he is woken up after a nap on the front porch. What show is this snapshot from?

6/10

I kept waiting for the BRADY BUNCH episode, where he talks about a run in with Jesse James.

They left out when he played a naked man wrapped in a tablecloth on Adam-12. Near the end of this YouTube video is TV Land's Burt Mustin tribute:

8/10 I knew it was a scene from Mayberry but should have guessed Gomer Pyle.

The most surprising thing to me in his Wikipedia article is that Burt didn't begin his professional acting career until he was 67 years old. I guess being typecast as an old man was inevitable.

9/10. Most were fairly easy but was seesawing between Gunsmoke and Bonanza on #6 and went the wrong direction. Always enjoy seeing him on any show he turns up on.

9/10, but guessed at a lot of them. I love Burt. He's one of those people that was born at the age of 70.

a real treasure - him and William Frawley IMO

by the way 3/10 - too many colored shots of westerns of which I NEVER watch - shanked them all

wasn't he on full s*** house or saved by the dumb bell ? (hahahahaha)

He was never in either of those shows, but he did show up on Batman, Sanford and Son, and The Brady Bunch. Check him out on IMDB!

was being sarcastic:) - almost every quiz Me-Tv puts out has a ref to those two ultra crappy shows

ya know if he was on those shows - I think would classify as elder abuse

I liked when he was Justin Quigley. The old man Edith brought home in his pajamas when he broke out from a Seniors Home on "All In The Family"

Thank you for not including a pic of Mustin's appearance on "The Monkees" ("Monkees Marooned")--He's half-naked in a Tarzan-type loincloth. Yeech.
