What color hats did these Western characters wear?

Do you remember all these cowboy hat colors?

While the stereotype of the good guy wearing a white hat and the outlaw wearing a black one holds true in some Westerns, there are plenty of movies and shows that break this unwritten rule. In fact, it sometimes seems hard to see where the idea came from!

Here are ten characters from classic TV Westerns with hats in all kinds of different shades. Can you guess the right color for each cowboy?

  1. What color hat did the Lone Ranger wear?
  2. What color hat did Gunsmoke's Marshal Dillon wear?
  3. What about Doc Adams from Gunsmoke?
  4. What color is Yosemite Sam's giant cowboy hat?
  5. When out on a job, Paladin from Have Gun - Will Travel wore what color hat?

  6. Though he sometimes had a black hat, Bonanza's Ben Cartwright usually wore what color hat?

  7. What about Hoss from Bonanza?
  8. James West loved a colorful suit but what about his hat?
  9. What shade was Lucas McCain's hat on The Rifleman?
  10. What color was Heath's hat from The Big Valley?

What color hats did these Western characters wear?

7 out of 10. Most of those were pretty easy once they showed the hats below. Then I could picture the actor in the hat. The ones I got wrong were mostly from shows I don't watch too much, but I can't believe I got Lucas McCain's hat color(or shade) wrong! I watch that all the time.

7/10 , Guessed on one and got it right . MeTv channel 30.2 in Jacksonville Florida will not show Andy Griffith or Green Acres and will not reply to emails as to why not !!!! My wife and I just returned from a out of state vacation and got to watch Andy Griffith and Green Acres every night we where on our trip . Sure was nice !!!!!

If your local metv affiliate is associated with another local station--they are probably responsible. I do not get Hogan's heroes because the local nbc affiliate (a sister station to our metv station) chooses to broadcast news for a 1/2 hr and then a local roadshow for a 1/2.

These quizzes that want you to pay attention to every little detail I like watching the shows I don’t pay attention to what the guys are wearing.

I often don my purple three musketeers hat, with its long ostrich plume. I wear it along with my Speedo and cowboy boots. I look fantastic! I turn some heads!
