What the quiz did not tell you was the money had significantly changed in content and character starting in 1965. Prior to that time from 1792, the dimes, quarters, and half-dollars were all manufactured from the precious metal, silver. 90% of each coin was from silver, 10% from copper to keep the coin from shedding some of the soft metal over time. Secondly, after Aug. 15, 1971, the 'dollar' was no longer redeemable into gold, allowing an unlimited creating of them by the central bank (Federal Reserve banking cartel) into the marketplace, artificially driving up prices. Which is actually reducing its value in the marketplace of that now-fiat paper with ink slapped on it, causing prices to jump up. This had vast economic and social consequences, causing women to enter the working world in vast numbers, leaving their latchkey kids at home either by themselves or from nanny's or sitters. Time to END THE FED and restore the value of a 'dollar' from its original gold standard strength to losing 97% from its 1914 value since the Fed Open Market Committee (FOMC) began operations that regularly creates out of nothing, many more of them. The Fed was also the cause of The Roaring 20s (artificial "boom"), followed by The Great Depression ("crash"). This boom-bust cycle repeats to the detriment of the lower- and middle-classes, but benefits the wealthy and upper-class in a silent re-distribution of wealth from the poor to the rich.

#10 - I was pretty sure the spoiled kid got 35 cents for his allowance, not 75 cents. At the end of the episode Opie's allowance goes up to 27 cents and it's a big deal.

The quiz is correct. Arnold Winkler's weekly allowance was .75 He did not have to work for it. This lead to the discussion between Opie and Andy about the "75 cent rule." As Andy pointed out, that was a "pile of money for a young 'un." Barney calculated it to $39 a year.

6 out of 13. The 1's I got wrong, I didn't watch the shows mostly. I m glad we can disagree about the words to the theme song 2 All in the Family. Now, we don't even get songs with our TV programs.

When Hanna-Barbera did a Richie Rich cartoon, it dress him up like Archie Andrews, instead of Little Lord Fauntleroy; Gloria also had a costume(?) change.
Strange cartoon. The uber wealthy boy carried a super-robot in his pants.

I don't fault myself for missing the Beverly Hillbillies one. Jed Clampett's fortune grew during the years the show was on the air. Between the pilot and the last season his net worth went from $25 million to $95 million.

I'm a little bit confused about Question #9. I've watched "ALL IN THE FAMILY" for many years now, and so I should know the words to the opening introduction song by heart, and yet I don't recall the words that were written in the question as those exact words in the actual theme song. In fact, I believe the theme song went like this:

Archie: "Boy, the way Glenn Miller played."
Edith: "Songs that made the 'Hit Parade."
Archie: Guys like us, we had it made."
Both: THOSE WERE THE DAYS!"

Edith: "And you who you were then."
Archie: "Girls were girls, and men."
Both: "Mister, we could use a man like 'Herbert Hoover' again."

Archie: "Didn't need no welfare state."
Edith: "Everybody pulled his weight."
Both: "Gee, our LaSalle ran great."

"THOSE WERE THE....DAYS!!!"

Boy the way Glenn Miller Played
Songs that made the Hit Parade
Guys like us we had it made
Those were the days.

Didn't need no Welfare states
Everybody pulled his weight
gee our old LaSalle ran great
Those were the days

And you knew who you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again

People seemd to be content
$50 payed the rent
Freaks were in a circus tent
Those were the days

Take a little sunday spin
Tonight I'll watch the dogers win
Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin

Hair was short and skirts were long
Kate Smith really sung the song
I don't know just what went wrong

THOSE WERE THE DAYS!
A few comments here: As I mentioned before, the line in the quiz was from the record, not the TV show! Love the line about circus freaks: It's Archie Bunker in a nutshell! As to the final link, it is a fact that the closing theme has no lyrics BUT Carroll O'Connor did write his own and even recorded them on an album! My mother owned a copy of that record so I can confirm it!
Sounds like something Archie would do!
That was my mom's favorite show in the 70s.

I too was confused regarding question #9. As a child, I watched All in the Family from the very beginning. I had never heard that second part which starts "People seemed to be content..." Most t.v. viewers wouldn't have heard the recorded version, so this is an unfair question for the quiz.
Everybody's favorite show!
