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"

When Ralph asks Alice for the money to rent a costume, he tells her he wants to dress as Henry VIII. When she refuses, he asks for a lesser amount and he can be Billy The Kid. Alice says no again and says she’ll give him a tin can and he can be “Billy The Goat”.
