Technically, all of the answers are wrong since they are not in the form of a question.

Like this and some other shows, many obvious goofs. Ex: Girls never wore mens clothes especially coveralls, girls were not given boys names, boys after Jesus and before Beatles had short haircuts and others. And, oh yes, the acting was super lousy by all except Ellen Corby and Ralph Waite.

#6 - Not meaning to split hairs, but wasn't "The Waltons" inspired by Earl Hamner Jr.'s 1963 movie "Spencer's Mountain" with Henry Fonda ?

10/10

Although I think you could have mentioned that 'Myrtle the Goat' originally belonged to Maude Gormley

8/10; not too bad a score considering that I have seldom watched this series. I missed Falcon Crest and Goats.
Cowgirl MrBill 51 months ago
The bird gave Falcon Crest away & I remembered that Tad & Willie Lincoln had pet goats otherwise I would have gotten those questions wrong too.

I recently purchased the pilot, which is a Christmas story. I think Richard Thomas is the only original actor that went on to the regular series.
