Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Daktari's" Clarence (the Lion) suffered from which affliction?

Answer: Cross-eyed

Clarence's first appearance was in the 1965 movie, "Clarence, the Cross-Eyed Lion", in which he becomes the family pet of veterinarian Dr Marsh Tracey. Because of his optical issue it made hunting extremely difficult, hence, survival in the wild, almost impossible.

The movie proved so popular that it gave rise to the television series "Daktari" in the same year. This was an adventure drama series that was aimed at children and maintained the same characters. The series also featured Judy the Chimp on a regular basis. Bruno the Bear, who would star as "Gentle Ben" from 1967 to 1969, made a guest appearance on the show.
2. Don Johnson's "Sonny" Crockett had a pet named Elvis that guarded his houseboat in the hit TV series "Miami Vice" (1984-89). What was Elvis?

Answer: Alligator

Almost everything that was considered "chic" or "cool" during the 1980s was epitomised by detectives "Sonny" Crockett (Johnson) and "Rico" Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) in this television buddy/crime drama series. Whilst they may not have invented designer stubble and the "t-shirt-under-the-Armani-jacket" look, they certainly popularised it.

Crockett, though, was slightly cooler than cool. The man owned and lived in a houseboat that was guarded by an alligator. What a way to impress the ladies. Elvis, however, was not overly good at his job. He tended to sleep and eat a lot and, despite being on the boat, Crockett's place was ransacked on a regular basis. One day Elvis disappeared and was never seen again. No mention of his disappearance was raised. Matter of fact, he was never mentioned again. No clues were ever given so it was left to me to keep eyeing Crockett's lovely "leather" boots... and wonder.
3. The Addams family kept a wide range of creatures on their premises but their son Pugsley had a particular fondness for a pet octopus that bore which philosophical name?

Answer: Aristotle

Aristotle was clearly made of some plastic material but, despite knowing that, as a kid, this creature still creeped me out. Even more so when he decided to hide under Puglsey's bed. But the Addams family loved him; Morticia called him "such an affectionate creature" and knitted a sweater for him (though she did ask Lurch to milk him one time... Ugh) and she and Gomez would regularly be seen giving him a bath in the backyard.

When the neighbours peeked over the fence Gomez would always tell them that Aristotle was friendly. Gomez was often heard to say that "anyone who hated an octopus was warped".
4. Which of the following dogs is a Great Dane who loves Shaggy but goes weak at the knees at the sight of ghosts?

Answer: Scooby Doo

Named after a line in the Frank Sinatra song "Strangers in the Night" Scooby is the life long companion of Shaggy and the pair share so many personality traits. The most notable being that they're cowards and are perpetually hungry. Scooby is blessed with opposable thumbs, in a similar vein to Brian Griffin, the white dog of indeterminant breed from "The Family Guy" (first aired 1998), and is voiced by Don Messick, who also voiced Astro, simply listed as the canine character from the TV series "The Jetsons" (1962-63). The extremely ticklish Scooby has appeared in various media but first appeared on CBS on their Saturday morning children's schedule in 1969.

(Footnote) Santa's Little Helper is a greyhound that first appeared on "The Simpsons Christmas Special" in 1989.
5. Buttermilk was a horse that appeared regularly on a western television series in the 1950s. Who was its regular rider?

Answer: Dale Evans

Evans rode this buckskin coloured quarter horse throughout the "Roy Rogers Show", which aired on NBC from 1951 to 1957. Roy, Dale's husband, famously rode the palomino Trigger and the show also featured a German Shepherd "wonder dog" known as Bullet. When Buttermilk passed away in 1972, his hide was stretched out over a model likeness and installed in the Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Museum in California.

It was later relocated to Missouri until it closed down in 2010. Buttermilk's likeness was then sold to a private owner.
6. Marcel, the capuchin monkey, was Ross' illegal friend in the series "Friends" (1994-2004) and his ears would prick up whenever he heard which song?

Answer: The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Marcel's main appearances were during the first season of the show though he did get mentioned in later episodes. He first showed up with Ross at a New Year's Eve party that Monica put together in the episode, appropriately, titled "The One With the Monkey". Eventually, in the continuing storyline, Marcel reached sexual maturity and Ross came to realise that he could no longer keep him . Marcel wound up at the San Diego Zoo. In later episodes it was revealed that Marcel had been stolen from the zoo and went on to become a famous movie star.

We first saw Marcel's penchant for the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" in "The One With All the Poker" (Episode 18, Season 1, 1995) when Marcel was constantly playing it on Ross' CD player.
7. Which of the following is a bush kangaroo that had his name in the title of an Australian television series that ran from 1968 to 1970?

Answer: Skippy

Skippy lived in the fictional Waratah National Park near Sydney which was the base for many of his adventures with a young boy named Sonny (Gary Pankhurst). Skippy proved to be extraordinarily intelligent and somehow managed to communicate with a series of gestures and clicking sounds. Those clicking sounds were not natural vocalisations that can be attributed to kangaroos and, as a result, the little Eastern grey kangaroo became the subject of numerous parodies. Most notable of these were the Australian comedy series "Fast Forward" and the British programme "Goodness Gracious Me".
8. What sort of bird was Fred, the fine feathered friend of television's undercover cop "Baretta"?

Answer: Cockatoo

Initially the producers had not planned on using a live creature, with the first idea being to place a picture of a Myna on the wall and have Baretta converse with it. This then became a stuffed bird until it was suggested that it would be cool to use a real bird. Lala, the bird selected to portray Fred, was a blue-eyed Great triton (cockatoo) who was paid $1,000 per episode.

He could talk on the telephone, drink out of a bottle and, after one particular fight scene in which Baretta received a black eye, he picked up a handkerchief, flew to a sink dipped it in some water and then flew back to place it on Baretta's eye. "Baretta", starring Robert Blake, first aired in 1975.
9. On the television show "Green Acres" they had a pig with the surname Ziffel. What was his first name?

Answer: Arnold

Arnold Ziffel was treated like a human by the residents of Hooterville on this CBS sit-com that ran from 1965 to 1971. The whole town, with the exception of Oliver Douglas (the show's star, portrayed by Eddie Albert), looked upon Arnold as the son of Fred and Doris Ziffel. Arnold, however, was much more than this, he was extremely clever.

He could write his name and change TV channels. In one episode he won a trip to Hawaii and a trip to Hollywood in another. This is one pig that knew how to earn his bacon.
10. Saberhagen was the surname of which of the following television cats?

Answer: Salem ("Sabrina the Teenage Witch")

Salem was really a 500 year old witch with megalomaniacal tendencies. At one stage he hatched a plan to takeover the world. The Witches Council didn't take kindly to this and sentenced him to be exiled in the form of a cat for 100 years. He was left in the care of Hilda Spellman during this period, which was Hilda's punishment for providing support for Salem's regime as part of his refreshments committee.

The series "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" ran from 1996 to 2003.
