Alfonso Ribeiro played a character in each of these shows. He played Alfonso Spears in Silver Spoons and Carlton Banks in Fresh Prince.

Hard for me to miss anything where this show is concerned. I wrote the official book on the series. If you want a few more difficult questions let me know and I'll send you some.

There was no tricking me, either. I knew the moment I saw the title of the thread what the answer was. But, it's good to ask some trivia questions. I've got one that I'm sure everyone knows the answer to. What does Silver Spoons and Family Ties have in common?

They both were broadcast on NBC-no i really don't know because i was too young when but shows were on the air-and they are not in syndication now so my memories of both shows are unclear-

Both shows had a Bateman in their cast.
Family Ties (Justine)
Silver Spoons (Jason)

You're right. I know this trivia question was also too easy. Does anyone know any other trivia questions that could possibly stump anyone for a change?

Okay-here is one for you-in what way is Silver Spoons similar to Good Times?

I'm not too sure, but I think it's that Alfonso Ribeiro was in a Michael Jackson pepsi commercial and Michael Jacksons' sister Janet Jackson was in Good Times as the character Penny.

The answer is that Gary Coleman made a guest appearance on Silver Spoons in 1982 and a guest appearance on Good Times in 1978

8 year old question, lol, but I can't resist...

Gary Coleman guest-starred as Arnold Jackson on both Silver Spoons and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air...so they share a character in common although he is technically a Diff'rent Strokes character...
