Can you tell the difference between the Walton brothers?

Do you know your Jim-Bobs from your John-Boys?

As the character based on creator Earl Hamner Jr. himself, Richard Thomas was undoubtedly the star of The Waltons during its early years. But the series devoted plenty of time to John-Boy’s siblings, especially in later seasons.

We’ve asked how well you know the Walton sisters, now it’s the brothers’ turn! John-Boy, Ben, Jason and Jim-Bob all had distinct personalities that often clashed. But at the end of the day, or at the end of an episode, they could always count on each other.

How well do you know the fab Walton four? Try your luck below!

A good Question would have been WHICH WALTON BROTHER FLIRTED WITH THE IDEA OF BECOMING A PASTOR. Does anyone there know that one?

9/12 a lot of guesses. Watched the early seasons when they were first on, as a child.

I remember that show was on when I was about 7 and thought it was damn boring. That is all.
