Can you spell the names of all these Sixties TV stars?

Will you be the Sixties spelling bee champ?

You have to be a big fan of 1960s TV to know the decade's biggest stars by name. And you have to be an even bigger fan to know precisely how to spell out each and every name you watched roll by in the credits of hit shows.

Think you've got the chops to win today's TV-tinged Sixties spelling bee?

Scroll through these familiar faces below and try to guess the correct spelling every time. You'll only be the champ if you make it through each round without a single spelling error. Good luck!

You got 9 out of 10 ---------Looks like you fell asleep on some of these major credits. Got number 7 wrong, but that's how he used to spell his first name with an e before the y. Mickey, now it's Micky

10/10 but harder than expected and certainly wouldn't have bet on some.

10/10! and didn't most of you kinda cheat on 5 by reading another post first? MeTV, you should have saved it for Monday? Stephanie, I would be shocked if you missed 7...LOL!!
I'll admit it. I read the article, just before I took this quiz.

"He served the doctor on Star Trek. O. K., I'll bite: In what capacity & exactly what did the doctor serve the doctor, {or to himself}?
Was it what KHAN offered up in THE WRATH OF KHAN: "Revenge is a dish best served cold." Did the Good Doctor serve up a tennis ball? Just what did the Good Doctor serve? "I'm a doctor, not a server!"
No, the correct phrase is "I'm a doctor, not a waiter!"...LOL!! Clearly, they meant "served as the Doctor". Damn it Jim, proofread the posts! I would argue that it was the auto kitchen that served everyone on the Enterprise!
No, I am right. I was including the serving of a tennis ball as well. Seeing as how I don't know how one can be a waiter to a tennis ball...the word "waiter" need not apply, because it doesn't in this case.
Good point, only in that case the phrase would be "serve to the Doctor", although don't most doctors play golf...LOL!!!

I only missed one (Q 7), so I do not think I deserved the comment "Looks like you fell asleep on some of these major credits."

Boy, is Stephanie going to be angry...LOL!!!
anthony Mirramanee 3 months ago
👍I agree and I got two wrong.
Yes, I am angry because Mirramanee missed #7. If she {?} finds that her tv is acting strangely, and she feels like she is not in the right frame of mind: That's because the Evil Wizard Glick has taken control because she did miss question #7.

I agree with you 100%!
