About This Quiz

Do you know which lucky man struck bubblin' crude right in his own backyard? Remember who hosted the sci-fi anthology "The Twilight Zone"? And how long was that boat ride on "Gilligan's Island" actually supposed to take before things went off track? If you know the answers to these questions, you might have what it takes to earn a perfect score on this '60s TV character quiz!

Between 1950 and 1960, the percent of U.S. households with at least one television set increased from 9 to 90 percent. With so many millions of families tuning in to TV for the first time, producers had a wide-open landscape for trying all new kinds of shows, to see what would stick with viewers. That meant lots of variety on '60s TV, from mod detectives on "Get Smart" to happy families on "Dick Van Dyke" and "The Donna Reed Show," to silly sitcom characters like Gilligan or Jeannie.

The '60s also saw a trend toward full-length cartoons with extended story lines, such as the futuristic "Jetsons" or the Stone Age "Flintstones." A rural obsession that started in the late '50s also had its heyday during the '60s with series like "The Beverly Hillbillies," "Petticoat Junction" and "Green Acres" regularly winning their respective time slots.

Consider yourself a '60s TV fanatic? Think you can match characters like Barney Rubble, Arnold Ziffel or Hoss Cartwright to the show each appeared on? Prove it with this quiz!
