3. Which "famouse" murine character was introduced to the world in 1928 in the short, animated feature 'Steamboat Willie'?

From Quiz Mike's Merry Mayhem Manipulating 'M'

Answer: Mickey

'Steamboat Willie' was the third animated feature with Mickey Mouse and his girlfriend Minnie, but was the first to be distributed by the Walt Disney studio. It was directed by Disney himself and Ub Iwerks. Mickey was originally intended to be 'Mortimer' but Disney's wife, Lillian, convinced him to change it. Mortimer Mouse did appear later, at times as Minnie's uncle and in other roles as a competitor for Minnie's affections. Walt Disney provided the voice for Mickey from 1928 until 1947. That role was then taken over by Jimmy MacDonald (1947-1977), followed by Wayne Allwine until his death in 2009, after which Bret Iwan became Mickey.

Claudio, he finds, has impregnated Juliet although the relationship was consensual. Angelo condemns Claudio to death as his punishment. Duke Vincentio, having remained in the country in disguise to observe what is occurring, tries to right the wrongs of Antonio. Although broadly classified as a comedy, it has a number of dark elements.

From Quiz Mike's Merry Mayhem Manipulating 'M'

Answer: Minnesota

Minnesota's nickname is 'The Land of the 10,000 Lakes'. This is not hyperbole; according to Wikipedia there are over 11,800 lakes in the state that exceed 10 acres (0.040 km2) in size. The gigantic lumberjack figure and folklore hero, Paul Bunyan, first appeared in print in 1906 in a story by James MacGillivray. The stories became more popular after use in an advertising campaign for a logging company in 1914. The origin of the character is believed to be from French-Canadians during the Papineau rebellion in 1837. One of the rebels fighting the English with great effect was a giant bearded man named Paul Bonjean.

15. If music be the food of love, play on: Which composer had difficulty landing or staying in a job despite being considered one of the top composers of his time?

From Quiz Mighty Monsterous Mysteries - the "M" Quiz

Answer: Cristobal de Morales

Cristobal de Morales was born sometime around 1500 in Seville, Spain. A highly talented composer, he apparently was also arrogant - he didn't keep positions long, and often didn't get positions he sought. His works included many masses (22 of which are still known), over 100 motets, a number of Magnificats and Lamentations, hymns and a Requiem Mass. He died in Spain in 1553. Colin Muset was born c 1200 in the Lorraine, France. He was largely an itinerant entertainer, travelling between castles and manors to entertain, but also composed some of his own works. A number of them survive to this day. He died in 1250. Robert Morton came a bit later, being born in England between 1430 and 1440. He spent most of his known professional life at the court of the French Duke of Burgundy. There is speculation that he may have later become the Bishop of Worcester, but there is not definitive documentary evidence for or against this. His surviving works are all secular, but he was a priest and it is not unreasonable to presume that the bulk of his work was sacred. His date of death is not certain; estimates range from 1476 to 1497. Pierre a la Mire (or Alamire) was more of a Renaissance Man, in the colloquial meaning of the term - he was composer, merchant, engineer, musician, diplomat and spy, amongst other activities. In fact, he didn't even exist! It is believed that the name was a pseudonym for a German or Dutch copier of manuscripts, born around 1470. The music attributed to him was probably copies of pieces he encountered on his travels as a spy for Henry VIII. He died in 1536.

Forrest Mars (of Mars Company) wanted to create a chocolate pellet that would not melt and was inspired by soldiers in the Spanish civil War who consumed chocolate pellets that were surrounded by a tempered layer of chocolate. Mars and Murrie collaborated to create what was to become known as the M&M. Murrie originally had a 20% stake in the candy, with his company (Hershey's) providing the chocolate filling. Murrie was eventually bought out by Mars, but his last initial persists in the name.

19. Those men in their flying machines travelling from London to Paris 'go up diddley up-up, they go down diddley down-down'. But what adjective was used to describe these intrepid aviators?

From Quiz Mike's Merry Mayhem Manipulating 'M'

Answer: Magnificent

'Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines' subtitled 'Or How I Flew from London to Paris in 25 Hours 11 Minutes' is an English comedic film released in 1965. It starred Stuart Whitman, James Fox, Robert Morley and Sarah Miles. The premise behind the storyline is that a member of the English gentry, Lord Rawnsley, offers a very large reward to the winner of the air race from London to Paris. The comedy arises from the completely overblown racial stereotypes and ludicrously funny madcap scenarios, brilliantly played by the main cast and great support including Eric Sykes, Benny Hill, Tony Hancock and Gert Fröbe playing a Prussian Officer. Naturally there's a love triangle, featuring Lord Rawnsley's daughter (Miles), a British army officer (Fox) and the upstart American cowboy (Whitman). There are lots of shots of wonderful early aircraft too (this was set only seven years after Kittyhawk).

From Quiz A Double "M" Quiz

Answer: Miriam Margolyes

The Devil kills Mabel for her failure. All in all, it was a pretty close fight.

28. 'You're as dead as a dodo' is a relatively common phrase describing an unfortunate outcome. In which island nation were those original dodos found prior to their extinction?

From Quiz Mike's Merry Mayhem Manipulating 'M'

Answer: Mauritius

The dodo (Raphus cucullatus) was a real, flightless bird found on the island of Mauritius. Adult birds stood about 3 feet (1 m) tall and weighed 20-40 lbs (9 - 18 kg). Dutch sailors were the first to report the existence of the dodo to the outside world in 1598, with the last creditable sighting only 64 years later. The dodo was part of the pigeon family and one theory suggests that over a long period it lost the ability to fly as there were abundant food supplies and no predators on Mauritius. The island was also uninhabited until the middle ages when Arab sailors arrived. The dodo's extinction was due to hunting by humans, their domesticated animals (notably cats and pigs which destroyed the on-ground nests) and introduced invasive species including rats. Loss of jungle habitat through land clearing exacerbated the problem.
