Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What was the name of the character Betty played in "The Family" skit on "The Carol Burnett Show"?

Answer: Ellen Harper

Betty played the sister to Carol Burnett's character Eunice. She was the daughter of Thelma Harper played by Vicki Lawrence. Betty played the role of the sister that had it together and Eunice was extremely jealous of that. Eunice believed Ellen was their mother's favorite and I would be hard pressed to disagree. The skits originated on "The Carol Burnett Show" and were so popular that it was made into a series called "Mama's Family".

Betty was a guest star on the show. The show ran from 1967 to 1978 and had an amazing 278 episodes.
2. What is unique about Betty's character, Mrs. Kline, in "Bringing Down the House"?

Answer: Betty played a bigot.

Betty was hilarious in this role of the nosy bigot neighbor. She made several off color remarks about people of Spanish descent. She told Steve Martin's character, Peter Sanderson that if she saw Mexican in their neighborhood without gardening equipment she would call the cops. When she was taking Peter's son Gregory, to play cards she made a homophobic remark because he needed a haircut. I think it was a great role for her to play because you wouldn't expect someone that appeared so grandmotherly to say the things she did.

Betty played the role of Mrs. Kline in this 2003 film by Adam Shankman. The movie in my opinion was one of the funniest I have ever seen.
3. In the year 2006, what soap opera did Betty appear on?

Answer: The Bold and The Beautiful

Betty played the role of Ann Douglas on the show. She was the long lost mother of Stephanie Forrester. Betty only lasted for a few episodes on the show. I really never felt like the character was believable as Stephanie's mom only because Stephanie seemed as old as her mother.

"The Bold and The Beautiful" first aired in 1987. Since 2010 the show has won over 13 Daytime Emmy Awards. Betty's character Ann Douglas passed away in the November 23rd 2009 episode. Her character was diagnosed and died from pancreatic cancer.
4. In "The Golden Girls", Betty plays Rose Nylund from St. Olaf. What state is St. Olaf located in?

Answer: Minnesota

Betty's character is always telling these stories from her hometown. The other girls find the stories unbelievable at times. The stories Rose tells do seem extremely odd and the fact that there appears to be one for every situation the women happen to be in is even odder. The general consensus between the other three women is that Rose is not wrapped to tight. The way she seems to take everything so literally makes her appear dim witted, but she is truly not.


Betty won her fifth Emmy Award for her portrayal of Rose Nylund. "The Golden Girls" aired from September 1985 to May 1992.
5. What is the name of Betty's character in the film "Lake Placid"?

Answer: Delores Bickerman

This movie actually had a stellar cast including Betty White, Mariska Hargitay, and Bill Pullman among others. Betty plays Delores Bickerman, a woman who is believed to have killed her husband. It is later on found out that Delores raised the crocodile and it actually was the one who killed her husband. Delores was on house arrest for not telling the police that the crocodile was the one who killed her husband. In one scene, she is extremely upset because they are using one of her cows to bait the crocodile.
6. Which animated show does Betty voice a character as a book narrator on?

Answer: Family Guy

Betty is truly a talented actor and has played in a lot of different genres including animation, horror, and situation comedies. Betty has also lent her voice to "The Wild Thornberrys", "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy", and "Father of the Pride".

In the episode of "Family Guy" entitled "Peterotica", Peter writes an adult novel. Peter's novel is a success and he makes an audio book of it. The book is narrated by Betty White. It is a hilarious moment when you hear Betty reading from the book. I could not help, but laugh out of control when I heard Betty doing this.
7. In which television show does Betty play Elka Ostrovsky?

Answer: Hot in Cleveland

Betty's character, Elka Ostrovsky in the show is matronly towards the other women, but not in the nicest way possible. She is a free spirit and lets everyone around her know her opinion. She is constantly busting on Joy for being unmarried and easy. When it does come down to it she does give the women affection and offers her advice, but always with a sarcastic undertone.

In the final episode of season one, the women seek refuge from a tornado and go down to the storm cellar for safety. They find Elka has an enormous stash of stolen goods. Her former husband had all this stolen merchandise and Elka never reported it to the police. Melanie Moretti is dating a cop and came to check on her and the other women. Elka's reaction is priceless and she says something along the lines that you had to bring the cops.
8. Who is Bunny's rival in the movie "You Again"?

Answer: Helen

This movie is based on multi-generational rivalries between Marni and Gail against Joanna and Ramona. Joanna made Marni's life in high school miserable and Gail did the same to Ramona. Marni comes home to meet the woman her brother is going to marry. She is horrified when she learns it is Joanna. Joanna does not seem to remember Marni from high school and this puts Marni on a mission to get her to remember and apologize. Throughout the movie all four women are horrible to each other, but in the end they come to all forgive and forget. In the final scene, Bunny meets her old rival Grandma Helen. It was one of the funniest scenes, both women start to argue over a man. Grandma Helen is using a walker so Bunny snatches him away.

Grandma Helen is played by the hilarious Cloris Leachman. Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver also starred in this 2010 movie.
9. What part of Alaska is the film "The Proposal" based in?

Answer: Sitka

Margaret and Andrew go to Alaska to meet Andrew's family. Margaret has just been told by her boss that she is being deported back to Canada. Margaret in order to save her job convinces Andrew to pretend like they are getting married. The two have a meeting with an immigration officer and tell him they are going to Alaska to meet Andrew's parents the upcoming weekend. the movie is hilarious and Andrew and Margaret start to fall for one another.

Betty plays Grandma Annie. In one of the funniest scenes in the movie, Annie is doing a tribute dance to her people. Margaret joins her and starts to dance and sing a highly inappropriate song. Annie looks truly confused while Margaret dances and tries to keep up with Margaret. The film was released in 2009.
10. What game show did Betty win an Emmy Award for?

Answer: Just Men

Betty was the host of "Just Men" for all of its thirteen weeks. She won the Emmy in spite of the fact the show was canceled. The idea behind the show was for two women contestants to win a car. According to Wikipedia the car was usually a Mustang. The game had four rounds including a bonus round. Betty has been a contestant or a panel member on the other three games as well.

Betty has had a great career that has spanned many decades. Her Snickers commercial along with Abe Vigoda won the top spot for Super Bowl XLIV. Betty is involved in numerous charities, but the ones closer to her heart involve animal rights and rescue.
