Can you tell the difference between Gomer Pyle and Goober Pyle?

Can you tell these two Mayberry mechanics apart?

Gomer Pyle and Goober Pyle brought comic relief to Mayberry — and a little auto repair here and there. The related characters had a lot in common. Both of them worked at Wally's Filling Station. Both of them were deputized when Barney needed a hand. 

Still, they had their differences, from wardrobe to catchphrases to girlfriends. Can you tell them apart?
  1. He joined the Marines.
  2. He often exclaimed his catchphrase, "Shazam!"
  3. He often wore a whoopee cap.
  4. When he was introduced on 'The Andy Griffith Show,' he had the last name "Beasley."
  5. He first appeared in season three of 'The Andy Griffith Show.'
  6. In his first episode, he was seen cutting into a bank vault with a blowtorch.
  7. He adopts a stray dog — and thinks the pooch can speak English. But really, it was just a walkie talkie hidden in his collar.
  8. He was in love with Flora Malherbe.
  9. He was in love with Lou Ann Poovie.
  10. This character appeared on a 1966 episode of 'The Lucy Show.'
  11. He appears in the color episodes of 'The Andy Griffith Show.'
  12. His brother Braden was a NASA rocket scientist.

Disappointed when Goober's girlfriend Flora was dropped. Loved her on Andy Griffith and in Beach movies as 1 of Eric Von Zipper's biker babes. ♣
Well, How many did you get right, RedSamRackham?
