More Obscure TV Trivia Answers

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.

Last night I had the TV on, providing some background noise, when I heard a commercial ask, “Do you have what it takes to run a TV station?”

I don’t know if they were advertising a new show, or a contest, or a video game, or whatever – after they asked the question my brain tuned it out as I immediately thought to myself, I have a wheelchair and a fedora – of course I have what it takes to run a TV station!

Then I thought to myself, woah that was an obscure TV reference.

So here we go:

  1. For 50 points, name the TV show I was thinking of when I thought I could run a TV station.
  2. A further 50 points will be awarded, if you can name the exact character on that TV show.
  3. Finally, there are 50 points for naming the actor who played the character on that show.

Ready? And…. go!

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?)

Cheers!

For 5 points, can you name any two movies that actor Troy McClure has starred in?

For 50 points, can you name Drake Mallard’s superhero identity?

For 100 points, can you name the detective agency where Cornfed works?

For 250 points, can you reveal the true identity of the mysterious “El Ka-Bong!”?

There are no prizes, though if you can answer any of these without using Google, Wiki, or IMDB then you can give yourself a pat on the back, prior to seeking professional help.
