More Obscure TV Trivia Answers

Posted 2009.11.27 23.00 in Music/Movies/TV by Stephanie

Recently I posted another little TV trivia quiz – essentially, a commercial had asked, “Do you have what it takes to run a TV station?”  And to that, I immediately responded, I have a wheelchair and a fedora – of course I have what it takes to run a TV station!

I was referring to a certain character on a certain TV show. 150 points were on the table – and Doug won them all! Congratulations!

For the rest of you, here’s the answers:

You get 50 points for each correct answer. Cheers!

P.s. my fedora is red and I don’t have a matching suit, but I could still run a TV station.

Obscure TV Trivia Answers

Ok so here’s the answers to last week’s obscure TV trivia questions:

For 5 points, all we needed was the names of any two movies that actor Troy McClure has starred in. This was an easy one as just about every time Troy appears on a Simpsons episode, he introduces himself with “You may remember me from such films as…” and names two films. For instance “Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die” or “The President’s Neck Is Missing!”

For 50 points, we needed the superhero identity of Drake Mallard. This was a tougher one, though the name makes it obvious we’re talking about a duck. What duck? When you’ve got trouble you call DW! DarkWing Duck!

For 100 points, we needed the detective agency where Cornfed works. Again, slightly more obscure, but the name and the fact that it’s a detective agency tip the hat. Duckman’s detective agency.

And finally, at 250 points, the most obscure reference at all. El Ka-Bong was an alter-ego of the drunken / senile Franklin Sherman, father of Jay Sherman, “The Critic”. (Side note: Is it wrong that Franklin Sherman is one of my heros?)
