Is this Will Geer on The Waltons or something else?

He was in Westerns, sitcoms and cop shows before and during his time as Grandpa Zeb.

Will Geer will forever be remembered as lovable Grandpa Zeb in The Waltons. The character's kind-hearted but mischievous nature was the same as the man who played him. But that wasn't always the case for Geer’s characters. After all, the veteran actor was in showbusiness for decades and even survived being blacklisted in the 1950s. He was bound to play a few bad apples!

Here are a few images of Will Geer from around the time he starred on The Waltons. Can you guess which ones are from that show and which ones are not?

Only missed one. The one that stumped me was that risqué photo of Greer shirtless #9 (well kinda) who could’ve imagined CBS airing such a shot of grandpa Walton shirtless back in the 1970’s? That show wasn’t the eye candy job like Charlie’s angels. lol.

Ohhhh, yeahhhh, we all remember Farrah in Charlie's Angels and her, um, uh, "gum drops" driving guys crazy back in the 70's, which is why her poster sold so well. My freshman-year roommate put that poster up even before he finished unpacking.

You got 12 out of 12
Did you dance through this quiz or did you miss a few steps?
Grandpa Walton rarely wore a suit, so most of them were easy to figure out. I wish they would have included a picture from when he was on Bonanza.

Just kept popping the clutch and stalling out on all the Geer shifts!

BTW, I think they missed a good possible entry - Will Geer as The "Doc" in the season 2 "Mission: Impossible" episode, "The Town"

12 out of 12. On # 9, I used to have a VHS Bloopers and in that Waltons scene there he is sitting in Drucilla's Pond and he mooned the camera and burst out laughing.
