  1. Annie,

    This test was great fun and brought back a lot of memories.

    As you read the question you were almost automatically singing the answers; "You'll wonder where the yellow went.........When you brush your teeth with Pepsodent"

    But you were right, it helped if you were of a certain age.

    I got two wrong #10 and #17. I was not familar with either of them. It will be interesting to read the other comments.

  2. I got them all as well...shows you how old and boring I am!

  3. I'm old as dirt, apparently, since I knew them all.

  4. I missed 3. Numbers 3,4,and 12. I'm disappointed I missed the brylcream question though.

  5. Nothing starts a day off on a good note than getting 100% on a test one hadn't crammed all night before for-----surprised there wasn't the question, "Takes a licking but keeps on ticking---? (Thank you John Cameron Swayze)

  6. I got 'em all!!! I R a, genus, ah, genius.

  7. Oh, I definitely did NOT make 100%!! I think I got closer to 13 correct, and I was pretty proud of myself for that!

    Older definitely equals wiser!! This proves it! :-)

    Hope you have a great week,

  8. missed 2. #1 & 11. bbooo!!!

  9. I missed most of these. There was too much Spanish going on in my house. :)

  10. I only missed number 4...I don't know whether to be happy or sad about that:)

  11. I missed #3...not familar with that cartoon. The test was fun though... nice little stroll down memory lane.

  12. Instead of proving how smart we all are, we simply proved how OLD some of us are! Thanks for participating. It was fun and some of the "youngsters" surprised me with how many they got right.

  13. I missed four of them out right, and I got two lucky guesses correct on two of them.

  14. Hey Grannie Annie, I'm 47 and I only missed one, number 5. I had a good time taking this "test" I enjoy your comments on Gary's blog and actually came to your blog by way of Sue's. Enjoying reading them.

  15. I missed 3 of them!!!! :)

  16. I'm old and got them all right, but #10 did give me pause....then I guessed right.
