Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. No quiz on cartoon dogs would be complete without everyone's favorite dancing World War I fighter pilot who slept on top of his doghouse. What is the name of this beagle with an extremely rich fantasy life?

Answer: Snoopy

Yes, it's Snoopy, whose Happy Beagle Dance is legendary, along with his running battle with the Red Baron, his prowess as a shortstop, his uncanny imitations, his beagle scout troop, his failed attempts to become an author and his wide range of fantasy alter egos. Snoopy first appeared in Charles M. Schulz's comic strip "Peanuts" on 4 October 1950, although it took several years for the character to settle down and develop his own eccentric personality.

The other answers are the names of other characters in "Peanuts", including Snoopy's owner, Charlie Brown.
2. Krypto the Superdog first appeared in a DC comic book in March of 1955. Whose pet was he?

Answer: Superboy

Krypto (the original one, not the modern redevelopment) was the pet of Kal-El on Krypton, and was sent into space in a test rocket that went off course, landing on Earth years after the one carrying the infant who had been renamed Clark Kent by his adoptive parents. Superboy (and later Superman) was often assisted by his canine pal, whose canine super-senses were even more keen than those of a mere super-human. Krypto was a non-descript white dog, who wore a gold collar and a red cape flying over his back similar to that sported by Superman.
3. Although not strictly a dog, Dino was a family pet whose role was clearly that of the family dog. What was the surname of the television cartoon family to whom he belonged?

Answer: Flintstone

"The Flintstones" was a Hannah-Barbera cartoon show that originally aired on the ABC network in the United Stated from 30 September 1960 through 1 April 1966. It ostensibly portrayed suburban life in the stone age town of Bedrock. Dino was the purple dinosaur who belonged to Fred and Wilma (and later Pebbles) Flintstone. He barked and growled as would be expected from the family dog, and regularly flattened Fred with his ecstatic greetings. The Flintstones also had a saber-toothed tiger called Baby Puss, rarely seen during episodes but always seen in the credits turning the tables on Fred when being put out for the night.

Barney Rubble was Fred's neighbour, Mr Slate was his boss at the quarry, and Joe Rockhead was one of his friends.
4. The televised cartoon show "Rocky and Friends", originally aired in the years 1959-1961, featured a number of recurring segments. One of these featured a talking dog and his pet boy, Sherman. What was the name of this dog genius?

Answer: Mr Peabody

The segment 'Peabody's Improbable History' showed Mr Peabody and Sherman traveling back in time, using the WABAC (pronounced Wayback) Machine invented by Mr Peabody, so that they could witness famous historical events at first hand. More often than not it was necessary for them to interfere to make sure events panned out as history had recorded, and the segment usually ended with a horrendous pun (as was common in many of this show's segments).

The other options are also characters from this series, and/or from its sequel, "The Bullwinkle Show" (1961-1964). The two series together are often referred to as "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show".
5. Hannah-Barbera followed up their Stone Age family with "The Jetsons", a cartoon about a Space Age family set in 2062. What was the name of the Jetsons' almost-talking dog?

Answer: Astro

Astro was a Great Dane-ish dog who had a basic grasp of English, although with poor enunciation (lots of extra 'r' sounds helped his speech resemble growling). He joined the Jetson family ('George Jetson, His boy Elroy, Daughter Judy, Jane his wife' - to quote the theme song) when Elroy found him as a stray and brought him home. The original series of "The Jetsons" aired from 1962 through 1963 on ABC, that network's first primetime show broadcast in colour; more episodes were produced for syndicated release in 1985-1987.

Cosmo Spacely was George's boss at Spacely Sprockets, and Spencer Cogswell ran the rival company Cogswell's Cosmic Cogs.
6. 1964 saw the first television appearance of an heroic canine with superpowers who discarded his alter ego of Shoeshine Boy whenever danger threatened the love of his life, Sweet Polly Purebred. What was the name of this clumsy hero who always spoke in rhyme?

Answer: Underdog

The character of Underdog was clearly intended to spoof Superman, with our hero ducking into the nearest available phone booth to change character (and destroying it in the process). Unlike Superman, Underdog always seemed to leave a trail of destruction as he went his superhero way. Many episodes ended with a crowd looking up and saying "It's a plane! It's a bird"; someone would say "It's a frog!", which another character queried, allowing Underdog to reply, "Not plane, nor bird, nor even frog, / It's just little old me ... (crashing into something) Underdog."

The other characters were some of the villains faced by Underdog.
7. Another Great Dane with rudimentary English skills spent a lot of time running and hiding along with his fellow-coward, a boy named Shaggy Rogers. Who was this dog, with a name inspired by some nonsense syllables in a Frank Sinatra song?

Answer: Scooby-Doo

Shaggy and Scooby have appeared together in a number of animated TV series and movies, starting with the original "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!", which first appeared on CBS in 1969. This series featured Scooby and four teenagers who tried to capture a ghost or other supernatural creature who was creating problems. After lots of running around (with Scooby and Shaggy usually running away from rather than towards the scene of the action), the 'ghost' was invariably revealed to be another crook trying to cover his nefarious deeds by using superstition to keep people away. Scooby's catch phrase was "Ruh-Ro", his version of "Uh-Oh". The name Scooby-Doo is said to have been inspired by the phrase "doo be doo be doo" in Frank Sinatra's recording of the song "Strangers in the Night".

Scrappy-Doo was Scooby's nephew, Yabba-Doo his brother, and Scooby-Dum his cousin.
8. Ladybird, a bloodhound resident of the cartoon town of Arlen in Texas, was apparently named after the wife of a former President of the United States. She does not, however, belong to the Johnson family. What is the surname of her owner, Hank?

Answer: Hill

"King of the Hill" (1997-2010 on Fox network in the US) featured life in a small Texas town, centred on the family of Hank and Peggy Hill, their son Bobby, their niece Luanne, and their neighbours. Ladybird was Hank's constant companion, and a source of comfort for him in times of stress. She starred in the episode "Dances With Dogs", when Hank and Bobby both became involved in competitive dog-dancing, despite her arthritis; her love of dancing helped the family finally resolve their differences and engage in dancing as entertainment rather than competition.

Dale Gribble, Bill Dautrive and Jeff Boomhauer are Hank's three friends seen sharing a beer with him in the alley in most episodes.
9. Seymour was the 20th century pet dog of which character from "Futurama", an animated sitcom set in the 31st century?

Answer: Philip J. Fry

Fry was a pizza delivery boy who was accidentally frozen and 'defrosted' in the future, where he met the other characters listed, who, along with the robot Bender, Professor Farnsworth and Dr Zoidberg formed the staff of the Planet Express interplanetary delivery company. Seymour had cameo appearances in a number of episodes as Fry reminisced about his earlier life, and was featured in the episode "Jurassic Bark" (originally aired 17 November 2002).

In that episode, Fry encountered the fossilized remains of Seymour in a museum, and decided to have Prof. Farnsworth clone his pet.

He finally decided not to do so, having discovered that Seymour had died twelve years after Fry disappeared, and concluding that there must have been many happy years for Seymour without Fry.

Then we saw a closing shot of Seymour sitting outside the pizza shop waiting for Fry through all kinds of weather, aging over the years in that spot, and finally closing his eyes in death. For a sitcom, this was a heart-breaking moment.
10. The long-running animated show "The Simpsons" includes a cartoon-within-the-cartoon which has occasionally been seen on the family's television. The storyline of one episode featured an attempt on the part of this cartoon to regain audience popularity by adding a third character to the show. Who was this groovy dog for which Homer briefly provided the voice?

Answer: Poochie

Itchy and Scratchy were the original characters (Itchy the blue mouse, Scratchy the black cat) whose incredibly violent antics resembled a gory update of such classic pairs as Tom and Jerry, Sylvester and Tweety, etc. In the episode "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show" (originally aired on 9 February 1997), ratings had dwindled, and the writers decided to create a new character, for whom Homer was selected to provide the voice. Poochie was a spectacular failure, and was killed off in his second episode.

Santa's Little Helper was the Simpson family pet, a rescued greyhound who featured in a number of episodes.
