Something for the Weekend

The inner moppet wobbly has abated, finally, but the weather outside has taken a decidedly dodgy turn being all grey, damp and somewhat blowy...joy...that'll be spring then. So, I've been a ponderin' as to what the heck to put in this 'ere space of interweb.....and so I bring you the TV Theme Tune Lyric Quiz....tis a flashy name which took me all afternoon to think up, can you not tell.

There's 25 shows to identify, some easy, some less than so and I've taken into account that many folk who peruse my pages are from that other land across the waters...so no excuses for getting stuck....There's no prize, but for the knowledge that you a are a smarty pants....who perhaps watches a tad too much television....but then what does that make me...ahem....moving on....the Quiz:

1. The indisputable leader of the gang

2. Some day the mountain may get them, but the law never will

3. It's true I hire my body out of pay

4. In my opinionation, the sun is gonna surely shine

5. Making your way in the world today, takes everything you got

6. Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool

7. Feet's too big, don't want ya cos your feet's too big

8. TV's, deep freeze and David Bowie LPs

9. Life is such a sweet insanity, the more you learn the less you know

10. It's like a kind of torture to have to watch the show

11. I could be wrong now, but I don't think so, it's a jungle out there

12. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me

13. Some people stand in the darkness, afraid to step into the light

14. The hooded man

15. Facing mirror images that were not his own

16. There's four directions on this map, but you're only going one way

17. Home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers

18. On my way to where the air is sweet

19. Someone is smilin' right at me, wait that someones talkin' to me, hey, I gotta a new friend

20. Muddles and fishin' and wrestlin' and fishin', the day would come quickly when they would be men

21. Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again

22. And he's a gentleman, a scholar, he's an acrobat

23. Might solve a mystery, or re-write history

24. For beneath the surface, lies the future

25. No phone, no lights, no motor cars, not a single luxury

Oh go on then....for bonus smarty pants-ness:

26. Flippin' like a pancake, poppin' like a cork

So there you go, that should keep you busy for a little bit....I'll give you till Tuesday to figure them out and then I'll give the answers, and no cheating....I have eyes and spies everywhere!

OK, at first I thought I wasn't getting a bunch of them because it's late and I'm tired. But after looking at Kimberly's answers, I realize it's because I've never seen at least 8, and there's a few others that I haven't seen since they went off the air.

And I thought I was so up on this kind of thing. I'm so ashamed ;)

By crikey I wasn't expecting someone to be quite as quick with the answers as that!....seriously Kim, you venture away from the Televison on occasion right? ;-)

Firefly Mom....I'm surprised you can't get 7...since you live with a form of what the show was all about.

Strictly speaking 14 is Robin of Sherwood....but sinces there's like a zillion versions of the legend (see dissertation for listings) I'll let it slide....as for 20....no-one got any idea....it was based around a kids classic book and aired in the late 70's, though over here was on during pretty much every summer of the 80's.

I guess the next time I have a go at a quiz I'll need to make it MUCH harder!!

Ok, well Kim aka Smarty Pants got pretty much all the answers...just #7. Harry and the Hendersons and #20. Huckleberry Finn and Friends stumped her....so well done Kim

Firefly mom said...

Harry and the Henderson's was a TV show, too?? I only remember the movie. Where the hell was I (no doubt, chasing after my own Sasquatch ;)
