I missed three, and one of those I should have remembered. I guess that means I am old. Or watch too much TV.

17, and there was no way I could have ever gotten the three I missed, but then I’m from the tail end of GenX so most of these are well beyond my time.

Wow! I impressed myself with that test! I must have been glued to the television, as my dad oft said, and also must be years away from developing a mass of senile grey matter.

Scored a 19! The missed item was #10. I don’t have an inkling at all where that comes from. Can someone clue me in on that?

Maybe I can make it up with an extra point….. DaN, is your new avatar, Rob Reiner as Michael ‘meathead’ Stivic in ‘ALL IN THE FAMILY’?

I’m a baby boomer offspring (I’m 28) Proud (or maybe ashamed, I’m really not sure) that I got 17 out of 20. Missed 4,(Who the hell are David and Chet?) 6, and 11. And I won’t lie, there was a few lucky guesses in there, LOL

Me and the wife got them all without each others help. Of course it’s from our era. and to answer LuckieB’s question – Chet Huntley and David Brinkley news casters on NBC I think.

I’m 44 and I got 16. The ones I missed I vaguely recalled them once I saw the answer.

I knew Mary Martin, Larry Hagman’s mom, because they were local to my home here around Fort Worth/Weatherford.

I’m 58 and I missed #10. Never did like wizard of OZ. Those flying monkeys freaked me out. To this day if I don’t like something, I call it a “flying monkey”.
