11:36 pm - Hello

Hi, I'm new to this community. Sorry for jumping in on a few posts. I've been a fan of television my whole life.

Can anyone tell me about a show called "Hot Fudge", it ran in the early '70s, I'm not sure if it was a local show out of Detroit or if it was Canadian or nationwide. All I can remember was there was a lot of music and a green monster puppet with big teeth who wore a top hat, lived in a tree (maybe I'm confusing the tree with Mr. Rogers) and he played the keyboards. The theme song was funky and it's been burned into my brain my whole life.

Hot Fudge...right on!
Hot Fudge...comin' at ya now...

7:28 pm - The Family Pets Quiz (Answered)

I posted a quiz HERE that I guess was too tough for people to try. Only two attempts were made at it! I waited a while to see if anyone else wanted to try, but the statute of limitations has clearly passed. So, here are the correct answers...

Just in case you wanted to know, or want to try the quiz and get the answers!Collapse )

3:50 am - First Question

Here's something new. I'm surprised there wasn't a community for TV Trivia before. I'm glad there is one now! You can ask me whatever you'd like. And if enough experts are out there, and I bet there are, we can fill in our missing television puzzle pieces!

Riddle me this!

On the classic tv series "Batman," there were three villains played by more than one actor. And there was one actor who played two separate villains. Can you name the collective actors and villains in question?
