Can you name these '60s TV characters from their movie reboots?

Can you recognize these beloved characters as their not-so-beloved remakes?

Pop culture nostalgia seems to focus its attention on a 30-year distance. This is why you'll find businessmen wearing fat, gaudy neckties in the 1940s and 1970s. This is why the last decade has been so obsessed with the 1980s — and why the '90s are now roaring back.

This is also why there were countless movie reboots of 1960s television shows in the 1990s. Everyone from The Brady Bunch to The Addams Family and The Fugitive returned to screens, only upgraded to the multiplex. Well, perhaps not always upgraded in quality. In fact, aside from the three we just mentioned, most of these remakes were ill-advised.

You know these iconic characters. In fact, many of them can be seen on MeTV. Let's see if you can recognize them in their rebooted form. Good luck!

  1. Shelley Long is best known as Diane on 'Cheers' but in 1995 she played this iconic mom.
