Diversionary tactics

Thanks for berating me in the last post, everyone. It helped. Seriously.

Moving on....it’s quiz time again! I can hear the collective groans from here. I do so enjoy them.

Okay, the person with the most correct answers wins a postcard and a Popener. A second winner will be selected via the random number generator, so leave a comment anyways. There’s still a chance.

Now for the questions. I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, so bear with me.

1) In Fraggle Rock, there were these little people who built things and looked a bit like Bob the Builder. What were they called?


2) According to the show’s theme song, Jem was

(a) truly courageous
(b) truly outrageous
(c) truly contagious
(d) truly skanktastic

3) Even though as a youngin I aspired to be Cheetara, this guy was actually my favorite ThunderCat.

What is his name?

4) Which Academy Award winning actor starred in PBS’ The Electric Company?

5) Name the villian in the Smurfs.

Bonus: What is his cat’s name?

Leave your answers in the comments of this post by 5 pm EST on Thursday, November 20. I’ll announce the winners on Friday.

Happy quizzing, everyone.

I grew up without television. Thank you for reminding me what a loser I felt like every day of my childhood, up until the day we got a pinball machine.

Kristina said...

Damn, I don't know any of the answers! What the hell did I watch on TV as a kid?

McB said...

*sigh* I hate admitting my age, but sadly I was too old for Fraggle Rock and Jem, vaguely remember hearing about Thundercats, and remember Smurfs only from watching them with my niece. I will say, though, that kids today are woefully deprived, not knowing the glory days of Saturday morning cartoons, when cartoonists could actually draw and the humor wasn't dependent on the sound of body functions. Scooby Doo, I miss you!

Jenn said...

1. Doozers
2. Truly outrageous
3. Panthro
4. Morgan Freeman?
5. Gargamel and Azrael

I only had to look up number 4 which makes me kinda proud and kinda sad all at the same time. Gosh I miss my childhood! I can't believe I am only a little over a year away from 30 ugh!

All I can think is that #5 looks a lot like Alun Armstrong, who's a British actor who's been on a lot of PBS shows.
Sigh. Tough quiz.

MissAllycat said...

I only know the Doozers and Gargamel, the first and last questions.

Interesting sidenote, when I have to take a dump I often announce that I'm going to take a Doozer.

theloosemoose said...

Fraggle Rock? Jem? Thundercats?
None of this is ringing a bell. This is because I'm older than dirt. Somehow I knew the Morgan Freeman question, though.

Bring on more Rome quizzes, please! We're going there in February, and I feel like I'm getting a very valuable and educational sneak preview. And I LOVED the map you did of one of your runs. Looking forward to running it myself.

chia said...

I still say they should have animated Jem to have a few britney-esque vag shots. I'm jez sayin.

Effing Fraggles. brb ;-)

The Laminator said...

Geez...I'm so late...

I'll forfeit my prize...but just gotta say "Go Thundercats!"

Maggs said...

joyRuN said...
