Does your memory suffer from the Mandela Effect?

Wait… was it the Berenstain Bears or the Berenstein Bears?

Even if you have never heard of the term "the Mandela Effect," you have probably had an argument about it. It's when false memories are shared by large groups of people. For example, do you remember the Fruit of the Loom logo having a cornucopia in it? Because we honestly did. But guess what — the Fruit of the Loom underwear brand has never featured a cornucopia in its logo! Crazy! A similar argument occurs over Cheez-It crackers versus Cheez-Itz. (It's CHEEZ-IT.)

Regardless of what you remember, only one of these options is right! See if you can remember the correct answer!

Don't worry, some of them boggled our minds, too!

  1. Is it The Flintstones or the Flinstones?
  2. Are they Looney Toons cartoons or Looney Tunes cartoons?
  3. "My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R…" but what is the last name?
  4. Is the cereal called Froot Loops or Fruit Loops?
  5. Now for the classic example: Were they the Berenstain Bears or the Berenstein Bears?
  6. Did Curious George have a tail?

  7. Did the Monopoly Man wear a monocle?

  8. Does the Kit-Kat bar have a hyphen in it — or is it just the Kit Kat bar?
  9. How does the opening line of the theme song to 'Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood' go…?
  10. Is the peanut butter brand called Jiffy or Jif?

Does your memory suffer from the Mandela Effect?

As they say, the memory is the second thing to go. (I forget what the first was.)

8/10 because I momentarily forgot which letter is on my Hot Wheels Wienermobile, and idiotically clicked too quickly on the Mr. Rogers one without really thinking. I even watched the whole danged Twitch marathon of the show! xD Rest were easy-peasey and well-known to me.
Also, omg, how are people not familiar with the Berenstain Bears?! I'm obsessed to this very day!! All the books (and the podcast covering them), the two cartoon series and specials (look 'em up on YouTube, they have an official channel)...oh, I've loved them so much since forever. And yes, their name has always been Berenstain. XD Easy mistake to make given that "stein" is such a common surname suffix. If you were a great deal less obsessed than I you could've easily assumed that was how it was spelled.
...but who came up with "Flinstones?" xD
I'm pretty familiar - and still got it wrong!

Idiots will always argue about things they know nothing about...then refuse to believe they could possibly be wrong about anything so they continue to argue.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. If you still fail, *then* give up. No sense being a d$#n fool about it! [grin]

Does your memory suffer from the Mandela Effect? No it suffers from not knowing all the answers to pop culture trivia also the ageing effect. Mandela effect is non-sense
