Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Famous fictional character Super Mario was originally seen in which of these?

Answer: Video game

"Super Mario" first released in arcades in the 1980s and before this game, he was featured as 'Jumpman' in the original arcade version of "Donkey Kong". Since then, he's appeared in scores of games on Nintendo consoles selling millions upon millions of units. Mario has since appeared in his own animated TV shows and a live-action movie.

2. What is the name of Looney Tunes' love-struck French skunk, who persistently pursues what he thinks is a female skunk named Penelope?

Answer: Pepé Le Pew

Pepé Le Pew is a stereotypically portrayed French, cartoon skunk belonging to the Looney Tunes family. Ever hopeful of finding a mate, the amorous, over-excited skunk is usually seen chasing anything that remotely resembles a female skunk. He first appeared in 1945's "Odor-able Kitty", and it was voice actor extraordinaire Mel Blanc who first voiced him, continuing to do so up until 1988.

3. Pennywise was one created by Stephen King, The Everly Brothers sang about Cathy's, whilst Emmett Kelly and Charlie Cairoli were real ones. What sort of characters am I talking about?

Answer: Clowns

Clowns are generally outlandish caricatures, characterized by bright colours, garish make up and oversized clothes. Emmett Kelly and Charlie Cairoli were probably two of the best known clowns worldwide. Kansas born Kelly was the creator of the hobo clown "Weary Willie", based on the tramps of the 1930s and '40s depression era. Cairoli was an Italian born British clown, whose act was heavily Charlie Chaplinesque.

He featured frequently on British television and in movies. Both Kelly and Cairoli passed away in 1979 and 1980 respectively. Pennywise is the evil dancing clown in Stephen King's classic horror novel "It" from 1986, whilst "Cathy's Clown" is the title of a number one hit of the 1960s for the American close-harmony duo The Everly Brothers.

4. Which of these popular comic book heroes does not wear a mask?

Answer: Superman

Superman, who has been around since 1939, has never worn a mask as a regular part of his costume. Somehow, when he appears as his alter ego, Clark Kent, donning a pair of glasses manages to conceal his identity. Even as a small child of four or five, I found this aspect of his character to be quite unbelievable!

5. What magazine mascot's motto was "What, Me Worry?"

Answer: MAD

Alfred E. Neuman is the fictitious mascot and cover boy of MAD magazine, the longtime American humor magazine that announced in 2019 that they plan to abandon newsstands and no longer publish new material. "What, Me Worry?" was the catchphrase of the gap-toothed redheaded freckled Alfred who actually appeared long before his association with MAD.

He appeared in advertisements for painless dentistry decades before MAD took him on as its cover boy.

6. Which comic character is said to be worth "one multiplujillion, nine obsquatumatillion, six hundred twenty-three dollars and sixty-two cents"?

Answer: Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck is a Walt Disney character and the uncle of Donald Duck. While his status as the "richest duck in the world" is not disputed, his real worth always is. This figure quoted above was deduced in a Time magazine article by Carl Barks.

7. Nicholas Parsons was the first presenter of which long-running BBC radio show?

Answer: Just a Minute

"Just a Minute" was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1967. The idea came from Ian Messiter, who remembered a history teacher calling him to order for daydreaming in class, and asking him to repeat what had just been said without hesitation or repetition.

The show's contestants try to talk for sixty seconds about a subject given to them by the chairman; they must do this without hesitation, or repetition, or deviating from the subject. Nicholas Parsons was originally going to be one of the contestants, but he reluctantly stepped in as chairman because Jimmy Edwards wasn't available for the recording sessions.

However he remained in the role of host for over fifty years, only retiring in 2019, which was the year before he died at the age of 96.
