How well do you know the women of Gunsmoke?

They were tough, kind, kooky and even scary!

10/11 Matt had many possible love interests. I think Kitty was more interested in Matt than vice versa, especially when she said "can I buy you a drink cowboy" to Matt

Missed 1, the boarding house question. This quiz is very reminiscent.

Too bad Matt and Kitty never kissed - but they were not lovers - they only had a brother-sister close relationship. He never made advances on her nor her him. The series couldn't allow it. It could create drama from the friendly separation - which created more drama in the series episodes.

TVLAND runs 4 hours of it each week - 12:00pm-4:00pm. Most of the episodes were addictive.

4 hours each weekday at that time that is.
