Can you guess the classic TV show from these cartoon parodies?

Catch all these cartoon references!

Half the fun of watching cartoons as an adult is catching all the references that went over your head when you were a kid.

Here, we've mixed up references to classic TV shows we found on cartoons from the 1960s to the 1990s. Whether or not you know these animated series doesn't matter. Just analyze the scene and see if you can figure out which TV show is being spoofed in these 10 scenes.

Only the biggest TV fans can I.D. each and every scene. Others will struggle to see through the animated lines. Good luck!
  1. The 1970s kids show Uncle Croc's Block featured a recurring segment that parodied which hit military sitcom?

10 out of 10. The funny thing is, I think that car in #10 is the car they regularly have for one of the characters.

8/10. That CB Bears shot looks way more like "Welcome Back, Kotter" than "Happy Days" to me. And in the Daria shot, would Columbo have a car THAT clean and fancy?

8/10. Suspected Columbo on the last one, but thought that would be too obvious.

9/10 Missed MASH. I would love to see that Flintstones episode.

I missed that one too. Since one character appeared to be in a cage, I guessed Hogan's Heroes.

I remembered "M*U*S*H". It stood for "Mangy Unwanted Shabby Heroes". The Hawkeye character sounded like Alan Alda while the Trapper John one talked like John Wayne.

You got 9 out of 10
Uh-oh, looks like you hit a wall or two there.
Wow. I guess I should be glad I did so good.
Can you imagine what they have in store for people who get 5/10? Or less?

"Uh-oh, looks like you hit a wall or two there" seems to be a "backhanded" compliment especially for a score of 9 out of 10. A "wall or two"? I got ONE wrong. It's like the always disappointed parent saying, "OK… you got a B+, but you couldn't get an A?"

I don't care… this is going up right here, on the 'frig!

9/10, Bonanza was super recognizable, the others not so much.
