9 of 11! I never would have guessed Dobie Gillis. I can't believe I missed the Monkees one! They're one of my favorite (manufactured) bands 😉

10/11 I can't believe I missed #7.
I actually did better on this one than I did on the 70s edition.

10/11. But I’m giving myself a correct answer for The Monkees because those specific lyrics are definitely not on the television version. Only on the single. Which I didn’t own. Because I was way too cool for that. 😆

10 for 11. Charles Addams was from Westfield, NJ, my hometown and you can see the house that inspired the Addam's Mansion there. Every year they throw an Addams Fest, it grew from a hundred people to tens of thousands. Same thing happened to Andy Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy, now they get people from all over the world visiting.

10/11 #3 fooled me. I started humming the Sesame Street song, and it through off my thinking.
That happened to me once before, but I took a sharp left at the blues note

#3 and #10. Not bad, since I never grew up on The Flintstones. #11 was my favorite, with the one word: Idlewild (airport name, pre-JFK name in '64) knowing only one theme song in TV history had that word in it: Car 54. One of the craziest theme songs ever, that few people remember, compared to Gilligan's Island or The Brady Bunch. Interesting that the series ended in Apr '63, prior to both JFK's murder and the Oct '64 overthrow of Khrushchev. Can we return to those more innocent and carefree days, instead of the horrors we have to endure today? Even the theme songs were much better then compared to today!

Seem to remember this one a little from a while back, so tried it again. Blew the Brady Bunch one, since I never watched that & don't remember much from Family Affair. One or two other 70s ones were kind of guesses but I got them right.
