I tried this quiz again and got 12/20 but it comes up as 12/12. Me TV needs to fix this glitch.

So far, trivia questions here have been Great--NOT this one. . .this was bogus { obviously some answers were not right }; whoever culled these questions must have had a drinking competition with Otis before creating this debacle!

Thank God the form of torture known as The Month of Mayberry is rapidly coming to a close and "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "My Three Sons" are returning to their regular time slots beginning on Monday morning. And what better way to celebrate than with the airing of the incredibly hilarious "Manhattan Hillbillies" episode featuring guest star Phil Silvers and an uncredited cameo appearance by the one and only Sammy Davis, Jr.!
