Can you correctly spell the names of these classic TV characters?

Wait… was it Aunt Bee or Aunt Bea?

Is spelling your strong suit? Well, even if you never won the spelling bee back in school, we bet you know iconic TV characters.

We gathered a baker's dozen of unforgettable faces. The spelling of their character's name? Well, that might be a little more forgettable. 

Let's see if you can correctly spell everyone's name!
  1. Who better to start this spelling bee? How do you spell her name?
  2. He was a happy fellow on Happy Days.
  3. What is the alter-ego of Wonder Woman?
  4. What is the last name of Trapper John?
  5. All aboard! He was the captain of the Love Boat.
  6. He was on a ship of a different nature.
  7. He was typically up against Perry Mason.
  8. He knew nothing — but he could spell his name.
  9. Her name is easier to type than "Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!"
  10. He was the Night Stalker.
  11. How about this Mayberry man?
  12. What is the name of this Angel?
  13. She was Latka's love.

"C for Carl; K for Kolchak" -- I can't think of any of these other characters who actually spelled their name for us on the show! :)

10 out 13. Can't believe I got the MASH, Star Trek and Charlie's Angels questions wrong. Three of my favourite shows.

10/13.I can't believe I got Aunt Bee wrong and Ralph Malph right! I really don't deserve a pickle,unless your talking about one of Aunt Bee's "kerosene cucumbers".😋Good idea for a quiz.👍

I think they are wrong with Aunt Bea. It's not Bee it's Bea for Beatrice, her name is not Beetrice. Check your facts MeTV

Nope, Her name was Aunt Bee. Always was. Blame her mother.

12/13. I know he played the father on Happy Days, but was he the father in real life?
leebillyold richardkel 6 months ago
Not in real life, if you mean, Tom Bosley or Howard Cunningham?

I was talking about Jack Dodson, he was both Howard Sprague and Mr. Malph!

The Dentist.
No, he was not a Dentist, he was an Optometrist.

That's *Mickey* Malph to you!

(Or, apropos of this quiz should it be spelled "Micky" or "Mickie"?)

I got 12 out of 13, even though they said I got the first one wrong, about Aunt Bea's name. It IS Bea, NOT Bee. Got # 13 wrong also.
DarrellHempel JeffTanner 6 months ago
It's definitely Bee. Her name appears in episode titles as such.
Absolutely correct you are!
You guys know your stuff, BEE is correct....I'm old school!!
