Zoinks! Can you remember the professions of these toons?

Hop in the Mystery Machine, punch in at the quarry — we have a job for you. You have been hired by the animation I.R.S. Don't worry, it's more fun than it sounds.

But the records for these classic Hanna-Barbera characters have been lost! We need you to remember what these people — and horses and squirrels and sharks and whatnot — did for a living. For tax purposes, of course.

Can you match the cartoon character to the correct profession? Good luck!

Watch The Flintstones on MeTV!

9/10.. it would be great if the cartoon show played Ricochet, Touche, Magilla, Hokey and Snagglepuss instead of the same Looney Tunes.
* I agree! Pixie, Dixie & Mr. Jinks would be better than Tom & Jerry any day! BTW I also got 90%. Missed the Secret Squirrel one.

Did anyone else miss #2, George Jetson? The Jetsons, a show that I have seen many times is also one I missed. All George did all day was push buttons, not even saying exactly what functions the buttons served.

6/10 Most of these shows are not even shown on METV. A couple of them I didn't even know about, even as a kid.

8 for 10. I have to admit I'd watch some of them again - well at least one time - if MeTV
ran them on Saturdays. I haven't seen Magilla Gorilla for over 50 years, I wonder if I
would recall any episodes once I saw them again. That happened when DECADES
reran Mack & Myer for Hire, which I hadn't seen since 1968 on WPIX in NYC.
I was shocked that I recalled episodes, when I had totally forgotten the entire
series. I guess given the right stimuli, the brain can recall many things once
forgotten.

9/10. Missed #8.

Here's one other question I thought of: What was Gus Holiday's occupation on "The Roman Holidays?" He was an architect for a construction company. I have that entire series on DVD - one of my all-time H-B favorites when I was a kid.
