Sunshine day! You made Cindy Brady's day.
And just WHO gives a flying F?*K about Cindy Brady?
I certainly don't.
Never watched "TBB" back then, and I certainly don't watch it now!

Got all 10, but that wouldn't have been possible had it not been multiple choice.

I got all 10 right, After all I've seen many classic TV shows from the very beginning.

9/10 Only because it glitched and jumped around when I tried to give it an answer to the first question.

9/10. Process of elimination works here. At least most of the time. Missed #6. I answered too quickly.

You got 9 out of 10
Sunshine day! You made Cindy Brady's day!--I missed Question #6. I chosed "The Bob Newhart Sow"; it was "Gilligan's Island". Go figure.

John Lawlor & Jenny O'Hara. She left the series after the first 4 episodes, and he left after the spring season, before Jo was on the show.
