Can you tell the difference between the Brady and the Tanner sisters?

Who met Davy Jones from The Monkees and who met The Beach Boys?

Eighties and Nineties shows like Full House wouldn’t exist without the family comedies that paved the way decades earlier. And the Bob Saget sitcom isn’t shy about paying homage to its inspirations, whether that’s referencing jokes from classic shows or welcoming Sixties stars to make cameos.

The Brady Bunch no doubt provided a template for how three sisters deal with schoolwork and boys while growing up in a unique family. In fact, it may be hard to tell which sisterly shenanigans happened on which show! Try to guess if these questions are about D.J., Stephanie and Michelle Tanner from Full House or Marcia, Jan and Cindy Brady.

  1. Who has a doll named Kitty Karry-All?
  2. Who cuts off some of her uncle’s hair?
  3. Who wears a short, curly brown wig to stand out from her sisters?
  4. Who invites Davy Jones from The Monkees to perform at prom?
  5. Who gets a horse without permission?
  6. Who gets chosen to be a kid contestant on a game show?
  7. Which sisters meet The Beach Boys?
  8. Who accidentally drives a car into the kitchen?
  9. Who becomes a total diva after getting cast as Juliet in the school play?
  10. Who feels jealous when her younger sister is cast in a TV commercial instead of her?
  11. Who asks a friend to pierce her ears?
  12. Who is nervous to start high school so she joins every club in school?
  13. Which sisters get stuck with their family on what they think is a deserted Hawaiian island?
  14. Who enters her father in a newspaper contest for Father of the Year?

Gotta say that watching The Brady Bunch marathon-style almost every Sunday pays off

As of Full House, no comment

12/14 I didn't watch either of these shows religiously so that's not too bad.
