Can you name these classic children's television shows by a single frame?

Won't you tell me how to get, how to get… 11 out of 11 on this quiz?

We learned a lot from television as kids. The medium was often demonized, but it deserves some credit. Classic sitcoms like The Andy Griffith Show told us a lot about growing up, thanks to the adventures of Opie. Of course, educational series like Sesame Street got into the nitty gritty of ABCs and arithmetic. 

Most of all, children's television shows simply taught us that television could, well, teach us things. But did they help improve your memory? 

Let's put that to the test. Below, you will find 11 still images taken from the opening credits of beloved children's programming from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. A true TV scholar can name eight or more. Good luck!
  1. This looks like a cozy place to live.
  2. This show taught us that books can open magical new worlds.

You got 9 out of 11
You aced it! See, there's a reason they call it "educational television." You may not remember all the math, but the opening credits stick in your head forever.
