Are all these catchphrases from cartoons or classic TV shows?

Try not to make Bugs ask, "What's up, Doc?"

The most often-repeated TV catchphrases spawn a culture of their own, and if you're not careful, you can lose track of which turns of phrase came from which television classics.

Prove you Yabba Dabba Doo have what it takes to tell the difference between catchphrases that came from cartoons and those made famous by iconic TV characters on shows like The Andy Griffith Show, Get Smart, Hogan's Heroes and many more.

Only classic TV fans smarter than the average bear can beat this one. Good luck!
  1. "Jinkies!"
  2. "Nip it in the bud."
  3. "Shazbot!"
  4. "Sufferin' succotash!"
  5. "You blockhead!"
  6. "Up your nose with a rubber hose."
  7. "I know nothing!"
  8. "Up and at 'em!"
  9. "Kiss my grits!"
  10. "Dy-no-mite!"
  11. "We'll try again next week!"
  12. "Let's be careful out there."
  13. "And now, here's something we hope you really like!"
  14. "Missed it by that much!"

13 out of 14, and now I want to watch that DVD of the complete Magilla Gorilla series I have, because I don't recall him ever saying that supposed catchphrase.

If it's a catchphrase, it's something he said regularly, which means I should have heard it at least a few times if I watched the show, right?

Missed #11. Never remember seeing the Magilla Gorilla cartoon for some reason. It must've not been on air in my area, 'cause it looks like the kind of cartoon I would've liked and watched.

Um, don't these cartoons count as classic TV?

Good question. Maybe we can use that argument to get episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle aired again.

11/14; missed 7, 8 & 12. I never heard of those and had to guess. I was not a fan and never watch Hogan's Heroes or Hill Street Blues.

13/14. Foiled by #8.
6. And just to think 40 years later that it would be called Navage.

“Jinkies” was also a swear word used by Luke McCoy on The Real McCoys.
