Only a legit fan of ‘70s pop culture can translate these forgotten words

Will strange terms from the Seventies pop lexicon stump you?

The Seventies had its own vibe, and with it, its own set of words and phrases that today sound like a foreign language to unfamiliar ears.

See if you're always right on when it comes to recalling all these unreal phrases.
  1. What did "Gremlin" refer to in the 1970s?
  2. What was "The Green Machine"?
  3. Now, pick out the "Hot Pants":
  4. What was a "Whatchamacallit"?
  5. Who played "Latka" on TV?
  6. What was "Sha Na Na"?
  7. Pick out the "Shrinky Dinks":
  8. What did you do with "Koogle"?
  9. What was a "Jabberjaw"?
  10. Last question: Show your true '70s stripes and pick out the Chevron Stripes.

10/10 Woo hoo. Yeah, I'm old. "The Green machine" is still sold today, in several models. And, of course, you can still buy a Watchamacallit

Uh-oh, looks like some parts of the Seventies got lost on you. Use MeTV '70s Slang Stickers for a fun refresher course! Now available for iPhone and Android.

Interesting lingo! LOL

9/10. I drew a complete blank on Koogle. I remembered the logo; I just couldn't remember what the logo was ON.
