Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Hopalong Cassidy

Answer: Topper

Created in 1904, by writer Clarence Mulford, Hopalong originally had a wooden leg which caused an unusual "hopping" motion when he walked. In the 1930s and 40s William Boyd played Hopalong in 66 movies. He saw the future of TV and bought the character rights and his movies. With edited versions of those films and a handful of newly filmed episodes, he became TV's first western star.
2. George Washington

Answer: Old Nelson

Though often painted with his white horse Blueskin, Washington preferred riding into battle upon his horse Nelson. Nelson was a gift from fellow Virginian Thomas Nelson and Washington named the horse after him "in thanks." Nelson was probably glad he didn't give George a pig.
3. Zorro

Answer: Tornado

Zorro made his debut in 1919 in a novel titled "The Curse of Capistrano" by Johnston McCulley. The book was a success and led to a film adaptation (with Douglas Fairbanks).
4. Alexander the Great

Answer: Bucephalus

Alexander acquired Bucephalus at the age of twelve. They remained a "team" for Alexander's entire military career until Bucephalus died of war wounds suffered during the Battle of Hydaspes in 326 BC. It was Alexander's last battle.
5. Wilbur Post

Answer: Mr. Ed

The list of stars that appeared in the 145 episodes of Mr. Ed reads like a "Who's Who" of television. Clint Eastwood, Donna Douglas, Johnny Crawford, Sebastian Cabot, Howard McNear and many more TV personalities appeared on the show during its five year run.
6. Ronald Reagan

Answer: El Alamein

El Alamein, a white Arabian stallion, was President Reagan's favorite horse. He was given to Reagan as an inauguration gift by Jose Lopez Portillo, the President of Mexico.
7. Dewey Bunnell

Answer: no name

"... I been to the desert on a horse with no name..." Dewey was lead singer of the group "America" and writer of the song "A Horse With No Name." The song reached the top of the Billboard Chart in 1972. It was the first of seven Top Ten hits for the group.
8. Joey Newton

Answer: Fury

Fury, from the television series of the same name, was played by Highland Dale. His owner (Ralph McCutcheon) was paid $1,500 per episode plus 5% of the show's profits. He also appeared on "The Munsters", "Lassie", and several episodes of "Bonanza." Bobby Diamond, who played Joey Newton, had a fairly busy career after "Fury" ended. Along with other roles, Bobby played Dwayne Hickman's idiotic cousin in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis."
9. Bart Simpson

Answer: Duncan

It was in the 13th episode of Season 11 of "The Simpsons" that the Simpsons rescued Duncan the diving horse from an abusive owner. To help pay for his upkeep Homer and Bart trained him to be a race horse. The guest stars on this episode (Saddlesore Galactica) were the Canadian rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive.
10. Robert E. Lee

Answer: Traveller

Traveller was purchased by Civil War General Robert E. Lee for $200 (in Confederate money) in 1861. Though generally solid and steady during the unpleasant battlefield conditions, during the Second Battle Of Manassas Traveller bolted and knocked General Lee into a stump, resulting in two broken hands. The Battle of Manassas is also known as The Battle of Bull Run.
