Who is in this scene: Little Ronny Howard or Bill Mumy?

For many viewers in the '60s, these child actors had them seeing double.

In the 1960s, little Ronny Howard was a star on the mega-hit sitcom The Andy Griffith Show. By the time the decade was over, though, audiences were introduced to another redheaded child star: Bill Mumy on Lost in Space. For anyone who regularly missed episodes of either show, it could be easy to get the two '60s kids confused.

That's why we assembled some of their best appearances on other hit shows, like Perry Mason, The Twilight Zone and Big Valley, to try and stump you.
