Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What nationality is the cartoon mouse Speedy Gonzales?

Answer: Mexican

Speedy first made his appearance in 1953. He was created by animator and director Robert McKimson Senior who worked on the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. Another of his well known creations was the large rooster, Foghorn Leghorn, a very amusing bird with a Kentuckian accent who was perpetually giving grief to the barnyard dog.

2. Since 1987, what restaurant has teamed up with the board game Monopoly creating a sweepstakes game where buyers collect Monopoly properties in order to win prizes and cash?

Answer: McDonald's

McDonald's Monopoly is an annual event where certain purchases get you game pieces, where you can collect a set to win money or prizes, or play online, where you can earn usually smaller prizes.

In 2007, Subway featured a similar contest, but with the board game Scrabble, which only lasted one year.

Question by player geniusonwheels
3. Which country is the setting for 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert', 'Blue Hills', 'A Country Practice', 'They're a Weird Mob' and 'Mad Max'?

Answer: Australia

The setting for all of this varied entertainment is Australia. 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' is an Academy Award-winning film from 1994, which features drag queen artistes traveling around the outback of Australia in their gaudy tour bus named Priscilla.

The movie also spawned a very successful stage show. 'Blue Hills', written by Gwen Meredith, was a very long running (1949-1976) radio soap opera set in a fictional rural community. 'A Country Practice' (1981-1994) was a TV soap opera/drama series set in rural Wandin Valley (fictional) which focused on the local hospital and veterinary practice. 'They're a Weird Mob' is a 1966 movie based on the book by John O'Grady and follows the hilarious adventures of new immigrant Nino Culotta as he comes to terms with the Australian language and culture in the 1950s. George Miller's 1979 'Mad Max', is a dystopian tale of a post-apocalyptic world where violence is the every day norm.

This movie spawned several sequels and set Mel Gibson on the path to movie stardom.

4. Which popular handbag company with a horse and carriage logo was founded in New York in 1941?

Answer: Coach

Founded by a group of leather workers, the company originally produced handmade wallets. When Lillian and Miles Cahn joined the group in 1946, they brought with them the knowledge of making fine handbags, and the desire to find ways to make stronger, softer leather.

In 1961 the couple bought out the company, and hired Bonnie Cashin as a designer, not just for handbags, but also for shoes, key fobs, and a host of other products. In 2017 the company was rebranded and renamed Tapestry, Inc.

5. 'Biohazard' is the Japanese title for what zombie video game series?

Answer: Resident Evil

While "Biohazard" was the name of this Capcom series upon its original release in the 1990s, the North American version of the game would go on to be called "Resident Evil", a title that would continue through to the movie series based on the original game.

The series is one of the longest-standing in horror gaming history with new titles expanding on the conceit of the original-- a virus is let loose by a pharmaceutical company and it regenerates tissue...and changes things.

6. Who is the creator of Spider-Man?

Answer: Stan Lee

Stan Lee's first creation was the "Fantastic Four". He has also appeared in several of the movies made about his comic creations, such as "Daredevil" and "The Incredible Hulk".

7. In "Superman Family" #196 Clark Kent is judging a 'Dancing Like John Travolta' contest when his x-ray vision spots someone from a rival disco planting bombs under the dance floor. What is his unexpected solution?

Answer: Uses 'super-vibrations' to disarm them

Yes, even though he's in his geeky alter-ego, in this story, a gang of lovely ladies (the Clark Kent Fan Club - who knew?) drag him in as a judge. Obviously the disco business was being taken very seriously, so when he spots the bomb being planted, he leaps onto stage and flings himself into a routine, using 'super-vibrations' of his steps to disarm the bombs. Sadly, I was unable to find any information as to whether he won the competition.

Question by player Quiz_Beagle
8. What color cape does Superman wear?

Answer: Red

Since 1932 Superman has been wearing his blue suit with a red cape.

Question by player matho_77
9. In the Scott Adams comic strip "Dilbert", who is Dilbert's incompetent boss, who continually makes uninformed decisions about Dilbert's assigned projects?

Answer: Pointy-haired boss

Dilbert and his co-workers just refer to their boss as the pointy-haired boss. The boss's secretary, Carol, once canceled her boss's security clearance, forcing him to hide from security in the building's air ducts. There are also frustrating similarities between the comic strip and the movie "Office Space" (1999) about the daily tasks of engineers.

Question by player evil44
10. What does the "I" stand for in the movie and television website "IMDb?"

Answer: Internet

The full name of the website is Internet Movie Database. Despite its name, the website contains information about film, television and video games.
