Cujo Trivia Questions

1. Cujo attracts rabies from the scratch of what infected animal?

From Quiz

Answer: Bat

Cujo, the 200lb Saint Bernard, ends up starting the story chasing down a rabbit. This leads him to a small limestone cave populated by a colony of bats and, unfortunately, those bats carry a particularly virulent strain of rabies. They scratch him deep enough to cause concern. At the same time, Vic, Donna, and Tad live out their lives in the town of Castle Rock. Vic and Donna seem to have a rocky relationship while Tad, only four years old, seems to be afraid of something hiding in his closet. Vic has to head out of town for a week of work for his ad agency and things are unassuming...for now.

2. What is the name of Vic's partner at his business?

From Quiz The Story of Cujo

Answer: Roger

Roger and Vic have been partners for many years and are now like brothers.

3. What breed of dog is Cujo?

From Quiz Cujo - Man's Best Friend

Answer: St. Bernard

Cujo was "the best friend Brett Camber ever had". He also weighed over 200 pounds and was the size of a small pony. But he was a friendly, lovable dog...until the rabid killing spree that is.

4. A kid named Brett Camber is punched in the stomach by a small kid. What is the name of the small kid?

From Quiz Joe Camber's Yard

Answer: Jim

This was his and Brett's first meeting. They had a small conversation before Jim said he could beat Brett up and punched him.

5. Although I was not born until 1975, I knew that a murderous policeman committed suicide in Castle Rock. However, before killing himself, he murdered a little girl. What was the name of the little girl?

From Quiz Stephen King's "Cujo"

Answer: Mary Kate Hendrasen

Frank Dodd, a psychotic policeman, was a serial killer who murdered Alma Frechette in 1970, Pauline Toothaker and Cheryl Moody in 1971, Carol Dunbarger in 1974, and Etta Ringgold and Mary Kate Hendrasen in 1975. At the time, no one knew that Dodd was a murderer. Everyone loved him and it was a shock when it was found out that he was a serial killer.

A man named John Smith was in a car accident and slipped into a coma for several years. When Smith came out of his coma, he was able to foresee the future, and it was because of Smith that Dodd was recognized as the murderer.

On the night that Dodd was about to be arrested, he ran to his home and committed suicide with a straight razor.

Although I was not born until 1975, I knew what horrible thing happened in Castle Rock.

6. What part in Donna's car likely needs to be replaced?

From Quiz Cujo

Answer: Carburetor

The goings on in Castle Rock start to get a bit more interesting when Donna's lover, Steve Kemp (a local poet and tennis player) stops by unannounced and she ends their affair. He decides to exact a bit of revenge, closing up shop and sending an anonymous note to Vic to let him in on his wife's horrible secret. Vic is none the wiser in the meantime, and actually believes his and his wife's relationship to be more positive than usual when he's working on her car, finding that the needle valve in the carburetor isn't working properly. He suggests they drive it up to Joe Camber's place, but they forget to do so. Charity Camber, meanwhile, contemplates heading to Connecticut to visit her sister and her nieces and nephews. She plans to bring Brett, her son, but worries that Joe would never let something like that happen.

7. What is the name of the little girl who vomits "blood" near the beginnig of the book?

10. What is the name of Castle Rock's postman?

From Quiz Cujo - Man's Best Friend

Answer: George Meara

There isn't much to say about George. He had a killer of a flatulence problem and wasn't too fond of Aunt Evvie Chalmers. Donna was praying he would come to save them from the Chambers front yard, but he had no mail for that house and so skipped it.

11. A mother is watching her daughter, Marcy, vomit blood in the bathroom. She doesn't know it isn't blood, it is dye. What cereal does this dye belong to?

12. In 1979, I turned 4 years-old. In that same year, a family moved into Dodd's house, unaware of the reputation it had for being haunted. What was the name of the family?

From Quiz Stephen King's "Cujo"

Answer: Trenton

Vic, Donna, and Tad Trenton moved into the old Dodd house in 1979, unaware that the house was considered haunted by the locals. Shortly after moving into the house, Vic's Jaguar needed to be fixed, so the family drove out to the Cambers for Joe to fix it.

While they were there, 3 year-old Tad stayed close to his parents, but when he saw me coming into the dooryard, he got so excited, and so did I. I saw that his mother was scared of me, and I had to do something to assure her that I was harmless. So, when Tad fell down I went over and picked him up, and showed her that I was a good dog.

Brett put Tad on my back and held him as I walked around. It was fun to give Tad a horseback ride, and I enjoyed it. A few hours later, when Vic's car was fixed, Tad left with his parents. I was sad because I didn't think I'd ever see him again.

A year later in 1980, Tad was having some nightmares and imagining monsters in his closet. When his closet door opened up, he thought he saw eyes; in reality it was just his teddy bear's eyes. Tad was so scared that his father made up a poem, called "The Monster Words" to help his son.

Tad thought "The Monster Words" would keep him safe, but he was wrong.

13. Who is Cujo's first victim?

From Quiz Cujo

Answer: Gary

With their last weekend past, Vic finally departs on his work trip with Roger, leaving Donna and Tad at home to fend for themselves for almost two weeks. He promises to call every other night. Donna, meanwhile, finally remembers her car issues and decides to bring it to Joe Camber's herself. Charity and Brett Camber, meanwhile, head to the Greyhound station and Brett neglects to tell anyone about Cujo, who he found out in the fields that morning, and the sickness that seems to have taken over him. Cujo nearly attacked the boy, but recognized him at the last minute. Brett and Charity decide to ask Joe to check on the dog that night when they call back home; they don't realize that Joe planned to go to Boston with his buddy, Gary. Unfortunately, Gary becomes Cujo's first victim.

14. Tad is the son of Donna and Vic. What is the nickname often given to him by his parents?

From Quiz The Story of Cujo

Answer: Tadder

They often called him Tadder when they were playing around with him or trying to calm him down. His father came up with the nickname.

15. What is the name of Vic Trenton's advertising company?

From Quiz Cujo - Man's Best Friend

Answer: Ad Worx

Ad Worx was co-owned by Roger Breakstone and was a small-time advertising agency with one big client, Sharp Cereals. The raspberry cereal fiasco caused big trouble for Vic and Richard, and was the reason they went to New York, leaving Donna and Tad alone.

16. A cop is pulling up to a house behind a smashed up Pinto. A cop, George Bannerman, gets out of the car and walks over to the Pinto. A rabid dog, Cujo, is waiting in the darkness somewhere. Where is Cujo hiding?

From Quiz Joe Camber's Yard

Answer: under the porch

George doesn't call it in right away. Before he can, he is unfortunately gutted and bitten to death by Cujo, leaving Donna and Tad Trenton to the blazing sun for a few more lethal hours.

17. In 1980, I turned 5 years-old, and although I was too old to chase anything, I still did. On one fateful day, I chased a rabbit into a hole, and that is when my whole world turned upside down. On what date did I chase that rabbit?

From Quiz Stephen King's "Cujo"

Answer: June 16

I turned 5 years-old in 1980, and on June 16, 1980, I saw a rabbit just waiting to be chased. He didn't know I was so close to him, but when he realized how close I was he took off, with me chasing after him.

We zigzagged across the field several times, and finally he fell in a hole. Had I known how small the hole was, I wouldn't have chased him, but I can't change what I did. I ran after him and got my head stuck in the opening.

I got scared, because I was stuck, and started barking. What happened next still scares me when I think of it. I had no idea that the hole was occupied by bats, so when I started barking, I scared them and they all woke up. They attacked me and I used the only weapon I had to fight teeth. I killed a few without getting any scratches. Just as I was getting good at killing the bats, one sidelined me and bit me on the nose, which hurt and frightened me so bad that I bit it in two.

The bat tasted horrible, and I pulled out of the hole, which I should have done in the first place, and went to the pond to get rid of the bat taste in my mouth. The hurting in my nose began to go away and I was feeling pretty good.

Little did I know that on that day my whole world was turned upside down, as I was attacked by a sick bat, and that the bat made me sick, too.

18. What is the name of Joe Camber's farm?

19. A cop named Roscoe Fisher sees a message in a vandalized house reading "I LEFT SOMETHING UPSTAIRS FOR YOU, BABY". He doesn't want to go upstairs because he cleaned up after what person?

From Quiz Joe Camber's Yard

Answer: Dodd

He is then considered a suspect in the disappearance of Donna and Tad Trenton, keeping them alone with Cujo for a while longer.

20. What did the note say that Steve Kemp left Donna after he destroyed her home?

From Quiz The Story of Cujo

26. Who calls the police regarding Donna and Tad?

From Quiz Cujo

The second night falls upon the Camber household and Donna, fearing her increasing weakness, decides to open the car door while Tad is asleep and make a dash for the house when she feels that the coast is clear. It's not though; Cujo, hiding on the ground in front of the car, waits to attack and leaps at her when she gets far enough from her door. She tries to get back into the car when the dog lunges for her and she does succeed to an extent, but she gets bitten in the stomach and leg before she can get the door closed. In Connecticut, Charity calls the neighbours, Alva and Bessie Thompson, but gets no real answer from them about whether or not Joe is around and feeding Cujo. She tells Brett they'll call a different neighbour in the morning. Vic, still out of town, begins to worry when he calls home several times to no answer.
