The only one I couldn't remember was Freddie. Brain fart, I guess. But I answered all the rest as fast as I could read the question, and got them right.

This means two things, (1) I'm freakin' old (2) my brain is still firing on most of the cylinders. :D

I only missed two. Number 16 and 20. I would like to think I'm really smart but the truth is I'm just old and I watched a ton of TV when I was a kid. I don't regret a nano second of it!

I collect old time radio shows I have 5916 episodes or 48.6 GB at last count. So if it seems I have a lot of knowledge about this stuff it's only because I do, LOL.
