* Whoopsy! 90% score! Missed the Fame one. But loved how Nia Peeples moved on from Nicole Chapman on Fame to being Ranger Sydney Cooke on Walker, Texas Ranger!

I never used a Lunch Box. I went home for lunch. When I started High School my friend and I went to a little restaurant every day.

You got 9 out of 10
Did your memory keep like apple juice in a Thermos — or is this a quiz result you'd rather trade?

Missed #10. I chose B, thinking that he wasn't in HTWWW.

10/10 the last one almost got me... but no Miss Kitty so no Gunsmoke.

10 of 10. Had to read the last one carefully. Realized that was not the cast of Gunsmoke.

9 out of 10
The only problem is that while James Arness stared in "How The West Was Won" he also starred in "Gunsmoke" as well.
MeTV, how do we score this one?

Arness didn't wear a mustache in Gunsmoke, plus his hair was longer and there are no other stars from Gunsmoke on the lunchbox.

I started 1st grade in 1962 with a barnyard lunchbox. Somewhere along the way it got lost or trashed. About 25 years ago I found one in mint condition (including the thermos) for $85 in a collector shop. I had to go for it, just for the remind factor.
