The Westons were the only neighbors of the girls who were seen in more than one episode. They’d eventually be featured in their own spinoff series “Empty Nest.” Richard Mulligan, who played Harry, appeared in three episodes of The Golden Girls. His television daughters, Carol and Barbara, who were played by Dinah Manoff and Kristy McNichol, each appeared in two. And of course, we can’t forget about their lovable dog who was played by Bear who appeared in five episodes.

The most memorable thing about the Westons on The Golden Girls had to be how heavily Blanche pined for Harry with him never expressing any romantic interest in her. But she was never deterred and even showed up in an “Empty Nest” episode to further the storyline. This quiz is about everything Westons. How well do you know the girls’ favorite neighbors? When you’ve finished, be sure to try our quiz all about the Boscos.
