Can you match the most memorable Twilight Zone characters to the right episode?

Test your memory for characters Rod Serling made sure need no introduction.

Most episodes of The Twilight Zone include a moment of introduction, where Rod Serling calls each character who walks into his eerie scenes distinct names and then gives us a hint as to the fate that lies ahead in TV's most dreaded destination.

These names are so key to connecting with the audience, that you won't find a single reboot that doesn't make reference to iconic characters out of respect for Rod Serling's legacy, right up to the reboot on air today.

That's why knowing these names adds another layer of intrigue for the biggest fans of the original series. You just pick up on so much more, the more you connect with these characters.

Do you think you can name names when it comes to some of The Twilight Zone's most memorable guests?

Find out by acing the quiz below! We'll give you a name of someone who entered The Twilight Zone, and all you have to do is choose the correct episode that spelled out their fate. Good luck!

#2 -- His name was Lew Bookman, not Lou Bookman. Specifically, Lewis J. Bookman.

9/10, missed "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet". Incidentally, I read the original story RIGHT BEFORE I took my first ever plane ride!

9/10, but I couldn't have done it without the hints.

''You got 4 out of 10'' -------------You missed a few characters, but don't feel too wounded by it.

8/10 and I know you expected a perfect score from me, Stephanie! Here's what happened: First of all, a lot of TZ characters had nightmares to deal and as far as I'm concerned, having to die over and over [a frequent TZ twist] is even scarier than seeing a gremlin! Also, Talky Tina WAY scarier than a phone call from a dead grandmother! PS Stephanie PLEASE try to stream "It's A Good Life", it's a classic!
I don't waste $$ on streaming. If I want a tv show bad enough, I will purchase it. I had the complete series of TZ at one time, but that was one of a # of shows/series that I got rid of when I moved. So, I don't need to stream it, I've already seen it. It's A Good Life is an episode of a tv show, just like all other tv shows have episodes. Nothing more, nothing less. Great comedy series!

8/10, I know most of them despite my aversion to all things Twilight Zone.
