11/12 the one I missed was the computer from Wonder Woman. I stopped watching Wonder Woman when she went to the 1990s

I feel the need to specify that the acronym for Thrush never appeared on the series. It was coined by David McDaniel in one of his novelizations. Considering that the information came from a pair of Thrush agents, it is entirely possible that it is misinformation, as is their claim that the organization was founded by an associate of Professor Moriarty.

"Thrush" is traditionally not written in all caps as an acronym is, which furthers the idea that the name is not, in face, an acronym.

You got 11 out of 12
We don't have to spell it out… you're a TV trivia genius!
Never even heard of THE Cat. You would have to be a Star Trek Fan to get #11 because it wouldn't be called that on the show if it had ever been mentioned.
