You got 9 out of 10
Columbo's surprised we stumped you!
Missed #9.
Mixed up 'I Spy' and 'Lost in Space'.

10/10. Had no idea from the first one, picked an answer and got it right. When it revealed what to look for, then the rest fell into place!

Hawkeye was an army doctor not a soldier.

I'm guessing they mean they were in the military period.

I see your point but technically if you're in the army you are a soldier no matter what your job is. If you're in the navy you're a sailor. On the other hand, Gomer Pyle was not a soldier he was a Marine. There is a difference. Just ask any Marine.

I got thrown because Archie Bunker was also a widower after Edith died, and Mike Brady remarried on the first episode.

My logic, too.

8/10. In #6, if you pick Chip, they're all male and all brothers.

Sorry, no. D.J. Tanner is female and therefore a sister.
JosetteByrd teire 8 months ago
It was about older siblings and she count.
teire JosetteByrd 8 months ago
Right. That’s why the Chip answer would not work.

Yes, but in Season 12, he would work since Mike left after Season 5 and Don Grady quit after 11!

In the movies and the TV series, Wednesday Addams is older than Pugsly- therefore the question for number 6 is invalid.

9/10. Missed the oldest kid one.

10/10 and Jan is glad you didn't use Marcia in Question 6! You would count the boys and girls separately, so while Greg was the only Brady to graduate, Marcia is just as valid for this question!

Celeste Holm fainted in the Gif!
10/10. METV's rationale behind how the answer is Mike Brady, is not the same as mine. When I read the list of names, I based my answer on the fact that Mike Brady is the only one of the three to just have sons. Howard had Chuck and Richie and Joanie, and Archie of course had his "Little Girl" Gloria.
