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!

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.

I’ve never watched the Waltons so I guessed Ben on each one.

Unfortunately, this score isn't something to write home about. Better luck next time! Kind of insulting.

10/12…I did not know Jason gave advice on the radio. And I thought Jim-Bob was the entrepreneurial one. But I was right about Jim-Bob racing. And who didn’t love Cora Beth calling Jim-Bob “James Robert?”

I can’t watch the Waltons all the time because of school. But 8/10 I’ll take it! Have a happy thanksgiving y’all 😄

You got 12 out of 12
I don't remember the cigarette smoking episode, but that sounds like something Ben would do.

I don't either.

Towards the end the series, Rose's grandson Jeffery was smoking, even started a fire.

There was repetition as the series went on.
