Can you tell the difference between Fred Flintstone and Ralph Kramden?

Did this happen on The Honeymooners or The Flintstones?

As many know, The Honeymooners inspired The Flintstones. It makes perfect sense once you think about it. Both shows center around two working-class couples. Barney Rubble and Ed Norton sound a lot alike. Fred Flintsone and Ralph Kramden have similar appearances — and temperaments. 

Joseph Barbera of Hanna-Barbera took the comparison as a compliment: "Well, if you compare Flintstones to Honeymooners, that's the biggest compliment you can give me."

In fact, you can see the similarities on MeTV, when we air The Flintstones and The Honeymooners back-to-back every Sunday at 10PM | 9C. We pair up thematically similar episodes to show the parallels. 

So, think you can tell Ralph and Fred apart? Try to ace this quiz!

They are totally 100% wrong on #7. Nowhere in "The Man From Space" is Halloween EVER mentioned. It's simply referred to as "the costume party". Also I want MeTV to show me where Ralph wants to dress up as "A fancy king"

8 of 14? This quiz was tough; I'm startled that I actually did that well.

My favorite Honeymooners episode has to be the one where Ralph talks his way into playing golf with his boss and tries to teach himself the game from a book. It gave us the greatest way to decide between the lesser of two evils--"What's siller, saying tally-ho to a fox or hello to a golf ball? "

Good one. I like the Blabbermouth one
#8 "The $99,000 Answer" is the funniest of the 39 from the 1955-56. Just outrageous in what Ralph goes through in trying to cover all the bases (he can cover the whole infield!) in trying to get to the Big Prize. Alice says she will be happy if he just answers the first two questions and wins $600. Ralph says in a memorable quote, "Peanuts, peanuts! What can I do with peanuts?" Alice's hilarious answer: "Eat 'em! Like any other elephant!" Jackie at least once implored the writers to not write so many fat jokes, but they were so easy for them to come up with! Everybody loves this fat man, as I did, in getting to see a filmed episode in Miami Beach in 1966. It wasn't a Honeymooners sketch, but a variety show. Still, I never forgot getting to see Jackie and Art together again. The best comedy duo in tv history!

It was in a made-for-TV movie released in 1993 called "Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby" (had to look it up myself).

Perfect Score!! I am a Honeymooners expert, seen every classic episode at least a dozen times, and have also seen all the "lost" episodes as well. So if I was unsure on any answer, I therefore knew the answer had to be Fred.
