Can you tell the difference between Johnny Crawford and Ronny Howard?

Two of the most famous kids in 1960s America were Ronny Howard and Johnny Crawford. Ronny played Andy’s son, Opie, in The Andy Griffith Show and Johnny played Mark McCain, a boy learning the ropes (well, lassos) in The Rifleman.

9/12. I’m usually way behind everybody else in these quizzes. However, on this one I think I did OK.

I was 9/12. I never would've guessed Crawford had a brother who was also an actor. And I got #12 wrong. Never saw "Village of the Giants" and that both of them were in it.

9/12 seems to be the average results on this quiz...

9 out of 12. I loved seeing Ronnie as Winthrop Paroo, the lisping little boy in "The Music Man"... he won your heart when the (at-first) silent child brooding over the loss of his mother joyfully sang about the "Welth Fargo Wagon"...

And the episode of Happy Days where Marion says the little boy in the movie looks just like Richie did at that age...
