13/13. I never watched "Transformers", but the phrase "main characters" - the plural - gave me the answer.

Foiled again! Sparkplug Witwicky got me LOL
Amalthea Runeshaper 12 days ago
I almost stuck on that one; the giveaway to the answer was in the statement "whose main characters could use a good mechanic." The plural told me which it was.

12/13 I was never a Transformers fan. Knew of the series, but could never have identified any characters.
These were pretty generic questions METV. How about a round with some more challenging ones?

Not me. I didn't watch "Transformers", but "main characters" is what gave me the answer.

3. Actually Tweety did more of the tormenting.

All Sylvester wants to do is eat to survive. Tweety sadistically tortures him while watching him starve to death.

Yep, and Jerry did the same to Tom! I actually felt sorry for Tom! Then again, if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have Itchy and Scratchy!

Only missed # 12. But I wasn't alive in 1950 so that's my excuse.
But shouldn't question...or answer # 13 been called Final Jeopardy?
