Can you list those numbers in alphabetical order based on each character's name?

You got 11 out of 12 - Did you get an 'A' or is your brain a mush of alphabet soup? Never watched The Waltons or Gunsmoke so I guessed on #5 (correct) and #9 (incorrect). They always say if you don't know the answer to a multiple choice question, you should guess "C", which I did for #5. Should have done it again for #9. :( But I'll take it.

11 out of 12 close, but you know what they say: close only counts in playing horseshoes and hand grenades. : 😁

''You got 12 out of 12'' -------Did you get an 'A'or is your brain a mush of alphabet soup? I got them all right the first time.

Nope, there was never a chance for me to get the names correct on "The Waltons" so I just guessed; the same goes with "Happy Days." I couldn't remember Doc's first name on "Gunsmoke" and I completely drew a blank on the characters in "The Rifleman" (obviously I haven't seen it in quite some time, sorry MeTV).

12/12 I broke down and used Google, but the whole searching and figuring out who was who on some of these took a really long time, so I deserve full credit! 😜

8/12. Too hard sometimes they used first names and sometimes they used nicknames. Cmon METV put a little bit of consistency and thought into it!

I got 8/12 which is good since I never saw half these shows.
