Super duper! You are a true TV expert. You should consider moving to Sesame Street. I missed the last one. Don't remember the Great Space Coaster.

I wouldn't mind seeing as it's not too far across the U.S. border in Plattsburgh.

Editing needed - #5 Po #8 Snork
It's such a great quiz, the errors stand out.

Seriously. When I saw "Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and POO" I lost it. It's PO! However, in #8, his name actually was Snorky. They said "Snork" in the theme song just to have it rhyme, but when they were introduced at the beginning of every episode, he was introduced as "Snorky". He was my favorite on that show.
