Nostalgia Trivia Game

February 25th, 2007, 03:44 PM
I haven't been able to guess too many of the songs from the thread in this forum (far to new material) so I thought I would make a trivia game for the old timers. I will ask a question and then once answered, that person can then continue with a nostalgia question of their choice.
This may not even work, I don't think too many of us were watching TV in the 50's or early 60's. Oh well, here it goes.

What was the name of Sky King's niece?

February 25th, 2007, 05:48 PM
HA HA....I'm one of the older oldies here and I've never heard of Sky King. :o

February 25th, 2007, 06:08 PM
I don't know that one either. :shrug:

Can we have a new question ??

February 25th, 2007, 06:14 PM

Hmmm. If it what I'm thinking it was a puppet show. I can only remeber "Penelope" and that pink spacelike bubble car.

February 25th, 2007, 06:49 PM
Oh, I L-O-V-E the Thunderbirds, but don't know them by name.
As for the nephew, CLIPPER. Oh, I wonder how I am going to spend my 10 points.

In no particular order :
Sylvia Anderson ....... Lady Penelope
Ray Barrett ........... John Tracy / The Hood
Peter Dyneley ......... Jeff Tracy
Christine Finn ........ Tin-Tin / Grandma
David Graham .......... Gordon Tracy / Brains / Parker / Kyrano
David Holliday ........ Virgil Tracy
Shane Rimmer .......... Scott Tracy
Jeremy Wilkin ......... Virgil Tracy (1966)
Matt Zimmerman ........ Alan Tracy

And don't feel bad I googled for a picture ~ I could remember Lady Penelope and only 1/2 of the Tracy bro's.

February 25th, 2007, 07:15 PM
OK here's one for ya.
What colour was Fury?

February 25th, 2007, 07:22 PM :shrug: :o

Got me. Love to see a pic. It's been eons. Remember the visible string hanging the meteorites and planets ?

I'll warn you now, I almost always lose inTV trivia because I've never watched a whole lot. I always liked Lady Penelope though ~ she was funny in an ironic sort of way. Almost like a precursor to Dianna Rigg's character ( XXXX Steele) in The Avengers.

The string was half the fun of watching.
OK now check out this link (hope it works) for a hit from 1969. And the kids today think we were so square in our music. Geeeezzz
One listen to this and they will know that we were hip and cool daddy oooh!

I love the Avengers!! I have DVD set that has 6 episodes, with one of my favorites "Death at Bargain Prices". The department store makes me think of that show "Are you being served?"

Yup, going nowhere. May as well up.:laughing:

I thought I was "older" and I know none of this - never heard of the first one, heard of the Avengers but we did not have a TV (my mom would not have one when we were little tho my grandparents did tho it attracted one French channel so there would have been no Avengers. Maybe Sarphin (sp?), lol) or Don Messer's Jubillee - about the only English show it would broadcast because even Francophones like fiddle tunes in the Maritimes.
