Most of us are considered members of TV generations. We were all raised in front of a TV, ate supper while watching TV, and knew nothing about current events that wasn’t told to us by all of the famous talking heads like Walter Cronkite. 

Since I love all things trivia and also old TV shows I thought for a change of pace I’d give you all an opportunity to flex your trivia muscles. I’ll  give you ten questions and then in my next posting on Ground Hog Day I’ll supply the answers.  Most of these questions are tough and they’ll certainly test your trivia knowledge.  Here we go:

Questions

1.    What was the address of Big Bird’s nest on TV’s Sesame Street?

2.    How many fingers does Mickey Mouse have on each hand?

3.    What was the name of the church to which comedian Flip Wilson’s character Reverend Leroy belonged?

4.    What role did Art Carney play in the Jackie Gleason’s first Honeymooner’s sketch?

5.    What famous Hollywood star turned down the part of Marshall Mat Dillon on TV’s Gunsmoke before James Arness was offered the part?

6.    On what TV show did comic Robin Williams first appear as the alien Mork?

7.    How did the TV sitcom Sanford and Son get it’s name?

8.    What was the name of the USS Enterprise in the original draft for the Star Trek series?

9.    On TV’s sitcom Petticoat Junction, what were the names of the three Bradley girls and their uncle?

10.   What was the name of the attorney on the Flintstones who never lost a case?
