I landed here quite by accident...I was searching for some obscure trivia about an 80s cartoon and found FunTrivia forums! This looks like a nice, friendly community so don't mind if I stay awhile.

As for me - I am a grad student in the US, paying way too much for my education and having too little time outside of studying, but I love trivia.

So, hello.

Hello!
I like you already... I got here by putting the words '80's Cartoon Quiz' into a search engine!

I'm new to the Forums, but old to the Quizzes!
Enjoy Funtrivia!

Hi beee, thanks! I was looking for the "Snorks" in particular. Many other cartoons have been on reruns on TV here but not that one...makes me think if anyone still remembers it at all.

Only tried my hand at one of the song title quizzes so far but I'll have to try out more one of these days!

Welcome, niveous! Glad you found us and enjoy your time here! (Your post made me get to thinking - I can't for the life of me remember how I found FT at first...). Have fun!

I found FT purely by accident, and I'm glad I did - welcome Niveous from Down Under, I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay!

Geez, that is all we need- another American!

Seriously, Niveous, welcome aboard, and cheers from yet another Aussie!

Thanks for the warm welcomes!

I've noticed that people from all over the world populate these boards, which is just lovely.

Are there "don't be nice to Americans" days?

Is there really that many Americans on here?
From what I've seem there seems to be loads of Australians!

Perhaps our friends from downunder are just quite verbal! Sitewide the Americans vastly outnumber the other nationalities. We have more than half a million members in total, fortunately not all belong to the forums!

Welcome. I too had a similar circumastance. I was looking up Star Wars IQ test (don't ask) and somehow found this site. The rest as they say is trivia.

I was looking up Garfield on Google (I'm a Garfield nut) and I found this on accident. I'm glad i did, though. Be warned, it's addictive!!
