Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can name all these Seventies child stars in Adam-12

The classic cop show had sitcom stars, Disney kids and even a future Oscar winner.


Even though it was a dramatic and sometimes violent police procedural, kids often played important roles in Adam-12. Whether they were put in harm's way by suspects, or caused trouble and became the suspects themselves, Officers Reed and Malloy dealt with plenty of youngsters.

Here are 12 child stars in Adam-12 you likely recognize from other famous TV and movie roles. Can you name them all?

I was born in 2005, I know who most of these people are. Barry, Jodie, Brandon Cruz, Johnny Whitaker, Angela Cartwright, Tony, David Cassidy, I have said this since I was six, but I really was born in the wrong decade.

Even as a Gen-Z (or Zoomer ig lol) I got a decent score of 8/12. Most of these were pretty easy, but some I had never heard of before.

Sorry, MeTV, but anything Millennials and Boomers can do, Gen-X can do better.

Yeah, I knew all the child stars. The daughter of an Adam-12 actor whose only acting credit was an appearance on her father's series couldn't exactly be considered a child star. SMH
