Are we describing episodes of Bonanza or The Brady Bunch?

Here's a story of... which family?

On Bonanza, Ben Cartwright was a widower with three boys of his own and on The Brady Bunch, it's the same case with Mike Brady. Both TV dads had the tough job of keeping the peace in their respective homes, but with one on a ranch in the Ponderosa and the other in a quiet suburban home, you wouldn't expect the similarities between their families to go much further than that.

But you might just be mistaken.

For this quiz, we've mixed up descriptions of episodes of Bonanza with The Brady Bunch to see if you can tell which is the Western and which is the sitcom. Toss your hat in the ring and prove you can tell apart these very different TV families. Good luck!

7/10. Haven't watched Bonanza in years and never paid much attention to the Brady Bunch. Definitely going to catch some Bonanza episodes...I loved that show back when it was "shiny and new". (Giving away my age here...oh well...; )

YOU ARE WRONG!! I got all of them right, you have #10 as the "youngest son".......it was PETER (the middle boy)who saved the little girl from the falling wall, NOT the youngest...Bobby. You cheated me out of getting them all right. CHANGE IT to be accurate!!!

Sometimes they change the graphic, can anyone confirmed that it said "youngest son" first?

Well, we know from our president that the definition or a wall is open...LOL! Notice that part of the post is also missing. Is Trump's AG in charge of the board...LOL again!!

PS yes, I meant to say "of a wall"! Spellcheck doesn't work if you spell a real word!
I always thought it was Bobby.

10/10, but I think #4 would've been really funny if it happened on The Brady Bunch.
cperrynaples Barry22 6 months ago
No, I don't think the Brady boys could do that!
Yeah, I agree. Also, I don't think ABC would've allowed something like that to be shown even if it was flipped, and had the girls, Carol and Alice become involved. Especially on a show like the Brady Bunch; when the worst thing they ever showed happen, was when Jan & Cindy caught Greg smoking. I know stuff like this {controversial, whatever,} was starting to be shown on other shows, not on a show that was supposed to have had a "wholesome quality" to it like BB.
