Did this TV show get a big-screen movie adaptation or not?

Did these shows only exist on the small screen?

 

Hollywood loves recycling. All you have to do is look at the wave of reboots hitting the big screen in the past few years — and throughout all of cinematic history. TV shows have made the jump from the small screen to novels, comic books, lunchboxes, toys, and more— but the least surprising medium shift is probably onto the silver screen.

What is surprising, though, is how the TV shows that got the Hollywood treatment might not be exactly what you'd expect. Can you figure out which ones showed up on the big screen?

Note: This quiz is talking about theatrical films only. Made-for-TV movies do not count. We'd be here all day! Documentaries also don't count.

Got 10/10. Lots has that #3 had a movie then a TV show but the question is did the TV show get made into a movie. That was the tricky question. Always one in the lot with MeTV's quizzes.

The Waltons DID get a big screen adaptation, it's called Spencer's Mountain, and was the first adaptation of the story of the family to become known as the Waltons.

No it says TV show made into a movie, not movie made into a TV show.

Although not on the big screen, there was a made for TV movie of The Walton before it was a series. Patrica O’Neil played the mother, but a lot of the characters we played by the same actors.

Also there was a movie made in the 60s “Spencer’s Mountain” based on Earl Hamner, Jr.’s book.

Spencer's Mountain was the first adaptation of the story of the Waltons, just by a different name. So, there was a big screen adaptation and that question's answer is wrong. LOL

No it says - did the show exist on TV only or were they also in movie form. Spencer's Mountain was written by Earl Hamner based on his life just as the Waltons were.

9 out of 10. I blew "The Waltons" I got it mixed up with "Spencers Mountain" in which came first.
Lacey SaraHighum 45 months ago
You could say that that WAS the Big Screen version.
SusannaSS SaraHighum 21 months ago
You didn't blow it. You were correct. MeTV blew it.
