Did these classic shows begin or end in 1969?

Was it hello or goodbye for Star Trek, Scooby Doo and The Brady Bunch?

When many people think of the 1960s, they really think of the late '60s, in particular 1969. Things like Woodstock and the moon landing will forever mark the year in the history books.

It was also an eventful year on television. Many classic shows either made their debut or aired their final episodes during those 365 days. A few did both! Can you guess what happened for each show listed below?

I never heard of the Joe Namath show, which may explain why it started and ended in the same year.
I think you cheated with H.R. PuffnStuff as many of these shows ran one year in new episodes then went into reruns for a decade.

It's been a long time since I've taken this quiz, and I got the same score as last time! (9/14)

11/14 - only watched a few of those shows, but being just 5 at the time limited my ability to get to a television

Me, too. I was only 7 in 1969.

I thought "H.R. Pufnstuf" ran for a full season, but I forgot they made only 16(?) half-hour episodes.
So it *is* true, not counting future reruns, that the show began and ended within 1969.

12/14 I thought the Smothers Brothers lasted into the 1970s.

You're confusing it with their 1975 show that was a mid-season show during the 1974-75 TV season.

Glen Campbell, Jim Nabors, JOE NAMATH(?)...wow, they'd give a variety show to anybody in '69!

Glen Campbell show was pretty popular back in the day. Johnny Cash, Mac Davis, Bobby Goldsboro, Sonny and Cher, and of course Donny and Marie all had a show.

11 out of 14. Not too bad, considering I began in 1969.

(honestly, I took this quiz only so I could say that)

Damn you Joe Namath!!!! You through a trick pass at me, and I dropped it!!!! H.R. Pufnstuff got me too...I didn’t expect there were going to be any trick questions.

12/14. I thought Jim Nabors Comedy Hour began and ended in 1969. Shoulda known, he's too talented for that. Missed H.R. Puffinstuff. That doesn't bother me.

Don’t feel bad, I missed H.R. Pufnstuf too...I thought it ended in 1970...Go figure, that was 11 years before I was even born...lol

13 out of 14. I could swear that H.R. Pufnstuf went on for a couple of seasons. Guess I was wrong.

Trick question if you ask me, originally broadcast 17 episodes in 69 but it ran on NBC til 72 because it was so awesome!
