Can you find ONE classic TV family that only had two kids?

Try to keep count of all those Cartwrights, Bradys and Waltons.

Do you have a big family? At MeTV, we have a massive family, if you count all the kids on classic TV shows.

Actually, you might have to count all the kids on classic TV shows.

We want to know if you can find the ONE family below that had just TWO kids. We're talking about the main children of the main characters — no grandchildren or friendly neighbors who hung out around the house. Think of the parents on the shows — then think of their kids.

Got it? Good luck!

Watch The Waltons on MeTV!

My first pick was the Ingalls. Wasn't the boy adopted? And if he was, does he count for this quiz?

Finally, I got it, in one go.
Sometimes, it pays to be old.

I see a lot of people posting "What about ...? or ...?" The question was NOT which shows can you REMEMBER which only had two kids, but which of the FOLLOWING (listed) shows only had two kids.

Wasn't there only two children in the "Donna Reed Show?"
Wiseguy ItalGal68 15 days ago
No, they had three, just as My Three Sons had five.
No, there was Mary, Jeff and the little girl whose name I don't remember.

Looked it up. Trisha. She only came on 5 years after the show started.

Any chance you could bring back Ozzie and Harriet? That would be GREAT!

Recently saw four episodes on CTN (Christian Television Network). Don't know how often they show it.

Nelsons were my second choice. Ozzie was like a kid.

Family Affair is tricky, because there were NO children (sons and daughters). Two nieces and a nephew.
Nieces and nephews can be kids, too, you know. Kids is defined by age, not relationship.

Leave It to Beaver, The Flintstones, The Addams Family, The Munsters, Married With Children...
Catman AdrienneHolek 17 days ago
"Only Two" disqualifies the Flintstones and the Munsters, who only had one kid each. Leave it to Beaver was the one I thought of first. It took me a lot of guesses to remember the Nelsons. I used to watch it when I was a kid, but I hardly remember it now.

You have to put an asterisk by Married With Children. To incorporate Katey Sagal's real-life pregnancy they added another son (named "Seven") for one season, then when she miscarried the writers pulled a "Bobby Ewing in the shower" and had that entire season be just a dream.

You want a really obscure one, how about Get Smart? In the final season Max and 99 had twins, only one of which (now grown and played by Andy Dick) was in the nineties reboot.
Wiseguy daDoctah 15 days ago
Seven wasn't their son so it wouldn't count.
JDnHuntsvilleAL Wiseguy 15 days ago
Again, the question was about kids, which is defined by age, so YES he does count.

A millennial for sure. Slinging around the word reboot like nothin' happened. You go Girl!
