Do you remember the names of the very first episode of these Western series?

With so many great Western episodes, you might have trouble remembering the name of the first one for each of these series.

There was once a time when Western series ruled the television world. In the 1950s, many classic Westerns aired for the first time, and some stayed on for more than eight years.

Whether the main characters were fighting bad guys or trying to win over their love interests, viewers found themselves hooked and eager for the next episode to air. Are you a true Western fan? If so, do you remember the names of the very first episode of these Western series?

Go and make the Western crew proud. Good luck.

7/10 Some good guessing. I missed #3, #6, and #10 (it seemed like something Paladin would do).

I got 3/10. I got #3, 7 and 9 right. I don't pay attention to the episode titles.

Neither do I, so I usually bomb these titles quizzes.

Only three. I did ace the Gunsmoke answers though. "Matt Gets It" was also performed on the radio Gunsmoke.

Yep, but the radio version didn't have an introduction by John Wayne!
