    Well, while he's no Chester, I still find ol' Festus, with his moth-eaten hat and thick as molasses drawl, a real scene-stealer, so he'd be my favorite from these later color seasons of the show.

    Festus is great but it’s his scenes with Doc Adams that stand out so my pick would be Doc Adams

    I'll go with Festus as well.

    IIRC, this was the era where Arness had scaled back a bit, so Festus had more to do.

    Well... there can be only one - Festus. Hands down. Doc Adams is a very close 2nd.

    I've always been partial to Newly O'Brien. I like how he came in small and grew into a dependable 2nd for Matt and Doc.

    I will go with Newly O'Brien played by Buck Taylor. Like David Canary in "Bonanza", Buck Taylor added a lot to the later seasons of "Gunsmoke".
