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.

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.

You could say that that WAS the Big Screen version.

For anybody who's wondering, there was a Get Smart movie. It was called The Nude Bomb and from what I've heard, it SUCKED!

I think they're referring to the recent "Get Smart" starring Steve Carrell as Max and Anne Hathaway as 99.

Either way, there was a Big Screen version (and "The Nude Bomb" wasn't THAT bad...)

I got 8 correct. AND in 1963, there was a movie called Spencer's Mountain. It was the big screen adaptation to The Walton's, minus two children.

The Waltons was adapted from Spencer's Mountain, not the other way around.....

That is a bit dicey.

Just when I thought I was home free and get a real trophy (instead of that Participation one). #9 Love Boat I have to learn to read first. In Theaters! It had only TV movies . I had another touch of Vertigo right when I was so near to the finish line .
