I don't think anyone on that show made a big career for themselves based off the fame and recognition of being on that show. Adam and Burt ended up being typecast. Burt gave up acting altogether.

It was the actors who had big careers going into the show, like Burgess Meredith, who still went on and continued their big careers afterward, but the show was a nice addition to their resume. No matter how successful his career was, I think Burgess is remember by most for either being Penguin or Mickey Goldmill in the Rocky movies.
