Do you know the middle initial for all these classic TV characters?

Captain Kirk, Colonel Potter and even Thing from The Addams Family used a middle initial.

Adding a middle initial to a character’s name often made them seem more sophisticated, although one Ernest Bass from The Andy Griffith Show might disprove that notion.

All the characters in this quiz either used a middle initial whenever introducing themselves or revealed the first letter of their second name in memorable episodes. We know what a few of these letters stand for but some are still a mystery!

See if you remember which letter goes between the first and last names of these classic TV characters.

12/12. Technically question one is incorrect. In the first episode of Star Trek starring William Shatner, James kirk's name on his tombstone clearly showed his Middle initial as James "R" Kirk. In later episodes he was known as James T. (Tiberius) Kirk.

9/12. Had no clue that Thing and Mr. Spacely had middle names. I know next to nothing about The Twilight Zone 🤔
