Pardon me, how well do you know your classic TV butlers?

You rang?

Frankly, we do not know a single person in real life with a butler. We'd love to. Perhaps we need a better class of friend. 

But butlers are everywhere on television — especially, in '60s, '80s and '90s sitcoms. These humble servants kept households running smoothly. Let's see how you remembered their work.

To make this a little more challenging, we're mostly looking for the name of the families for which they served. Sound tough? You could always ask the help.
  1. Well then, we begin with this fine gentleman. He served which family, if we may ask?
  2. A quality butler comes when he is called for. This servant would ask, "You rang?" Which family did he serve?
  3. Some butlers go underappreciated by their bosses. Just take it from Smithers here. For whom does he work?

  4. Some butlers are asked to do more than the driving — a little fisticuffs, say. For whom did this butler work?
  5. Geoffrey Butler was born to serve with his last name. What was the name of the family he served?

  6. This distinguished butler toiled his way to the top — all the way to Lt. Governor. He learned politics when working for which family?

  7. This gentleman was English but had the name of another European land. Which would that be?
  8. Certainly you know of Mr. Belvedere, another butler to headline his own sitcom. Would you happen to know the name of the family for which he served?

  9. Niles here could be found serving on which '90s sitcom?

  10. Mr. Homn served the family of a crew member aboard the Enterprise on 'Star Trek: The Next Generation.' Would you mind selecting his master's surname?
  11. Finally, we finish this affair with a butler simply named "The Butler." He served No. 2 on which classic series?

10/11, wasn't paying attention and accidentally clicked "Flanders" for Smithers. Although Smithers ISN'T Burns' butler.
