Are we describing episodes of Bonanza or The Brady Bunch?

Here's a story of... which family?

On Bonanza, Ben Cartwright was a widower with three boys of his own and on The Brady Bunch, it's the same case with Mike Brady. Both TV dads had the tough job of keeping the peace in their respective homes, but with one on a ranch in the Ponderosa and the other in a quiet suburban home, you wouldn't expect the similarities between their families to go much further than that.

But you might just be mistaken.

For this quiz, we've mixed up descriptions of episodes of Bonanza with The Brady Bunch to see if you can tell which is the Western and which is the sitcom. Toss your hat in the ring and prove you can tell apart these very different TV families. Good luck!

10/10. Never was interested in Bonanza (and I was only 13 when it ended), but I grew up on The Brady Bunch.

9/10. Missed #9. Oops. then again, I don't really care for "Bonanza," and the plot just sounded like something from "The Brady Bunch."
