ABOUT THIS QUIZ

What kid who grew up in the '50s and '60s didn't wake up on Saturday mornings, excited to watch the latest antics of some of the best cartoon characters to have ever been created!

Coupled with the fact that most homes in America had televisions sets during the decade between 1950 and 1960, beloved characters like Woody Woodpecker, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, and dozens more became household names -- many of which are still famous today!

It can be argued that many of the classic cartoons from those early years were the inspiration for many of the cartoons kids watch today.  And while the technology was nothing like it is today, those beloved characters and cartoons didn't need high tech to make them lovable and memorable.

Do you remember the name of the space-age dad on "The Jetsons"? What about Rocky and Bullwinkle? Can you even look at a rabbit without says, "What's Up, Doc?" Who do you think of when you hear "Yabba dabba doo!"  Can you recall who was "the wonderful, wonderful cat"?

If these cartoons conjure up memories you hold near and dear to your heart, then this quiz is for you.

We've picked 50 of the best cartoon characters from the '50s and '60s and placed them in this quiz.  How good is your memory when it comes to naming these classic cartoons and their beloved characters?  There's only one way to find out.  Take the quiz now!
