I got 19 out of 20. This proves I'm eligible for the Senior menu at IHOP and Denny's.

15 out of 20 - - which makes me a pretty good guesser.

Of those 15, I only knew about 7.

I think I should qualify for the Senior menu at IHOP and Denny's, too. (At least, I should be able to pass for one, right?)

Jill said...

You are a great test taker Karen, because really, you shouldn't have known many of these.

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Oh my. I got 17 out of 20. Does this mean I am old? But at least I am not as old as Dennis. Good job.

darlene said...

14 out of 20. Does that mean I didn't watch much TV? I would fail miserably if the quiz was from current day programs, music, and sayings.

Valerie said...

I got 12 and I knew those were all correct (so I didn't guess), but I had no idea about the others. The questions seem to run a pretty big time span.

grandmapeg said...

I got all 20 right, but then I took this quiz a few weeks ago and missed the one about Pogo. I guess I'll take the senior menu too, please :-)

Richard said...

18 correct...I missed Pogo and Peter Pan.

Nate and Julie said...

13 not bad for an "echo boomer"...that's what they call my generation I guess

Jill said...

I've never heard that term "echo boomer"! 13 is really good for being so young, Julie. I'm surprised.

Heidi Garvin said...

I got 18/20. And I wasn't guessing on those. I think there's something wrong with me.

Mary said...

Oh no, I got all 20 right and it was my first time to ever see this quiz! Does that make me the oldest person who's commented so far? I guess I should quit tearing up those letters AARP keeps sending me... On the plus side, my brain cells must still be firing on all pistons--unless I've skipped right to my second childhood?

Natalie said...

I got 12 right, which is about what I expected.

Lisa said...

SIX. Are you trying to remind me that I have dementia? Where do you find these things?

Anonymous said...

I got all 20 but I did guess on number 8.
