Can you I.D. these TV characters who share the same name?

Try not to give characters you love a bad name.

Every show has its own cast of unique characters, but over time, we've seen a lot of last names get repeated. Here, we take stock of some of our favorite overlaps in surnames we saw on TV from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Here's how to play: Below, find photos of TV characters. We'll tell you the last name we're looking for, and it's up to you to pick the one character who does NOT share that same name.

Try to make it through the quiz without giving any classic TV characters a bad name. Good luck!

  1. Find the TV character below whose last name is NOT: Grant
  2. Find the TV character below whose last name is NOT: Burns
  3. Find the TV character below whose last name is NOT: McCoy

Missed #12. I never knew Fred's last name. But I remembered Shirley's last name was Jones. 'Doh'.

13/13; I knew all but 2 and 13 but I guessed correctly on those two questions to get a perfect score.

You got 12 out of 13 --------You can go by the name of winner today! Lisa Douglas commends you on a job well done. Got #13 wrong because I thought it was Robert Horton, ""Flint'' from ''Wagon Train''.

12/13. Missed the last one b/c I don't watch Twin Peaks and I forgot Robert Fuller's Last name in Wagon Train. Number 12 was tricky b/c the actress' last name was Jones, but the character's last name was Partridge.
JeffTanner richardkel 27 days ago
Robert Fuller WAS NOT in "Wagon Train'' it was Robert Horton. Robert Fuller was in"Emergency'' in the'80s.

Robert Fuller was on Wagon Train. He was in the last season. He took over Robert Horton's role as scout of the Wagon Train. He went by the name Cooper Smith. And wore a white cowboy hat.

Robert Fuller was also in Laramie and played the character Jess Harper. I've recently been watching Laramie on GRIT and like him even better on there than I do in Emergency!
