What Might've Been: The Monroes (1966)

Five orphaned siblings make do in the wild West, keeping the family unit together under much hardship after the loss of their parents. Unfortunately, The Monroes lasted just 1 season, despite having 20th Century Fox stablemate Batman as a lead-in.

Michael Anderson, Jr., Barbara Hershey, and twin brothers Keith & Kevin Schultz were among the stars in this family Western, which resurfaced when reruns aired on cable's Family Channel in the 90's  Kevin Schultz is better known, though, for his work in another short-lived primetime series, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which came along two years later.

We never saw the show, so there won't be a rating. We'll leave you with this clip with guest star Michael Dunn, better known, of course, as Dr. Miguelito Loveless on CBS' Wild, Wild West:
