Can you complete the names of all these 1950s TV characters?

See if you can send your score "to the moon!"

In the 1950s, great television was just getting started. With genuine stars like Donna Reed, Steve McQueen, Lucille Ball, and many more leading the way, it remains an astonishingly memorable time in TV history, especially for those who spot what's so special and return to the shows regularly.

Here, we've got a baker's dozen of classic characters we met in the 1950s, missing half their name. Anybody who's a fan of this early era of TV will be able to complete 10/13 names or more, no sweat. Good luck!
