YMMV / Gunsmoke

  • Fan-Preferred Couple: The writers of the show got a lot of mail (especially from women) stating that they wanted to see Matt and Miss Kitty get married. The writers toyed with the idea, but felt that if Matt was married he really couldn't go out and do all the dangerous things he did.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Matt's constant greetings of "hello, Kitty" become this thanks to a certain franchise that became a worldwide icon some decades after the show was aired.
  • The Scrappy: Some consider Chester to be almost completely useless when trying to help Matt on the job. Which was odd seeing as Chester could be rather formidable on his own, as he proved numerous times against groups of bandits.
