see pioneer 10 and 11, and voyager 1 and 2
it is possible
besides one can save some time and fuel and money, if you can arrange the flight path, speed, etc
so that the spacecraft can pass each planet in turn

order may not be as you listed as it depends on planetary motions and path of spacecraft

Not exactly. Pioneer 10 only flew by Jupiter; Pioneer 11 only flew by Saturn. Voyager 1 and 2 both went to Jupiter and Saturn.
