12 out of 13. It helped that in most cases they had a show that was obvious older and one that was obviously younger.

5/13. I haven't watched cartoons since the late 60's/early 70's. Some of these I have never heard of. I don't know when a lot of the other shows started either. I have little sense of time. I pretty much got the ones that started when I was a kid and didn't have so many things crowded in my brain.

13/13. Got hung up on a couple, but, for the most part, I knew what shows DIDN'T premiere the same years as those cartoons.

12/13! Question 2 is totally bogus because neither series actually premiered in 1989! Yes, "The Simpsons" had a Christmas special that year and the "Seinfeld" pilot ran on NBC. Neither series had a proper premiere until 1990, so the answer is right but for the wrong reason!
13/13. What difference does it make. The answer's still right!
