This was a good quiz in theory. However the answer to the equation was the key for picking the right choice, like shoe = Get Smart. Easy to get 100%

9/10, what breed was Comet the dog on Full House?
Dale Barry22 14 days ago
I couldn't even remember if there was a dog on Full House or Diff'rent Strokes, so I guessed and got it right on Punky Brewster.

You got 9 out of 10
You must've had a really good teacher when it came to finding the best classic TV shows!

Now that i've thought about it, Equasion 3 makes more sense for either Far Out Space Nuts or Gilligan's Planet, especially since Bob Denver was in both! Saying Gilligan and Dr. Smith are the same doesn't work!
Equasion= E-q-u-a-t-i-o-n.

9/10.My only beef is #2 the one I got wrong but should have been right.If it's TAGS-Andy+Soldiers then it can't be Gomer Pyle because TAGS-only Andy leaves all the other regulars.I know Aunt Bea,Opie and Goober guest stared on Gomer Pyle,but other regulars like Barney,Howard,Floyd and Emmet didn't.Plus if you really want to split hairs Andy did appear in the Gomer Pyle pilot(even though it technically was a TAGS episode).So the only logical answer would be F Troop because TAGS-Andy is really Ken Howard and Ken Howard+troops is F Troop.Which is the one I picked.So I should have gotten a perfect score on this one.😝Other then that I agree that it was a really enjoyable quiz.πŸ‘πŸ‘UP
