When Tiddles, Mrs. Slocombe's cat, was brought to the store, we only saw its tail through the door of the cat carrier. While its appearances were minimal, its existence was constantly brought to our attention with lines such as "Animals are very psychic; the least sign of danger and my pussy's hair stands on end".

From Quiz Defining Moments in TV

Answer: Seinfeld

I'm probably the only person on the planet who couldn't stand "Seinfeld", but I do get a kick out of this episode. Kramer's entrance, slapping the money on the counter because he's lost the bet - that is classic! They called this season four episode "The Contest".

23. A man walks through five sets of security doors and enters a telephone booth. He dials a number and is promptly dropped through the floor. Name the show.

From Quiz Old TV Show Intros

Answer: Get Smart

The show ran from 1965 to 1970. Don Adams stars as Maxwell Smart in this comedy spoof of the secret agent genre. As agent 86, along with his partner agent 99 (Barbara Feldon), they were members of CONTROL, a U.S. intelligence agency. They were in constant battle against KAOS, which was described as an organization of evil. (Neither CONTROL or KAOS is an acronym.)

24. The ending of this medical drama revealed that the entire series had taken place in the imagination of an autistic boy, who stared into a snowglobe that contained the hospital. What show did the boy think up?

From Quiz Famous Final Episodes

Answer: St. Elsewhere

"St. Elsewhere" (1982-1988) featured the staff of St. Eligius Hospital, a teaching hospital in Boston. The ending does present an interesting situation of the "shared universe" of television shows, since characters crossed over directly with "Cheers" (1982-1993) and "Homicide: Life on the Street" (1993). Those shows had characters that crossed over with other shows, and so on, creating the "Tommy Westphall Universe" which numbers approximately 280 non-animated shows from "I Love Lucy" (1951-1957) to current (as of 2010) television shows.

25. A man from the planet Twylo, who has no thumbs and eyes in the back of his head, stalks our hero with walnuts - thankfully only in his dreams.

From Quiz Defining Moments in TV

Answer: The Dick Van Dyke Show

Rob and Laura watch a late night horror movie, which results in a nightmare of epic proportions. An alien is stealing people's souls, replacing them with the souls of Twylo-ites, who have no thumbs, eyes in the back of the head, love walnuts, and breathe water. Danny Thomas, whose company produced the Dick Van Dyke Show, guest starred as the alien.

26. This show is based on a teenage boy and his family. His best friend helps him get into trouble, while his girlfriend helps him out of it. He lives next door to a teacher he has had all his life, starting in middle school and ending in college.

From Quiz Name The Show

Answer: Boy Meets World

"Boy Meets World" was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid, and it was on the air from 1993 to 2000. It centered on the family and showed many values that are still talked about today.

27. Sue, Mary, Spud, Lottie, Trish, and Jimmy.

From Quiz Name That TV Show 2

Answer: Costello

'Costello' aired for less than a season in 1998. It starred Jenny O'Hara and Dan Lauria ('The Wonder Years'). Jenny also played Dixie Randazzo in 'My Sister Sam'.

28. Eddie was the dog seen on this sitcom.

From Quiz TV Animals

Answer: 'Frasier'

Eddie Crane belonged to Martin and did not seem to have a fondness for Frasier.

29. Clarabell the Clown didn't speak at all during this show, until the final episode, when he ended the series by saying, "Goodbye, kids." What show was it?

From Quiz Famous Final Episodes

Answer: The Howdy Doody Show

"The Howdy Doody Show" (originally titled "Puppet Playhouse") (1947-1960) was the first nationally televised children's show and featured puppets (like Howdy Doody) and actors such as host "Buffalo Bob". Clarabell the Clown was played by Bob Keeshan (who went on to become Captain Kangaroo) from 1947-1952. Robert Nicholson then took over the role until 1954, when Lew Anderson became Clarabell until the final episode. It was Anderson in the costume when Clarabell finally spoke.

30. The members of "The Addams Family" had an unusual feline pet. What kind of cat was their pet, Kitty Cat?

From Quiz Fifteen Minutes of Feline Fame

Answer: Lion

The family saw nothing unusual about having a lion roaming their house. Then again, that was only one of their unusual pets. The son Pugsley had an octopus called Aristotle; the daughter Wednesday had a large collection of spiders of which one is mentioned by name - Homer. The family also had a pair of piranha named Tristan and Isolde and a vulture named Zelda, and Morticia kept an African Strangler, a man-eating plant, named Cleopatra.
