Got 20 -- apparently those ad jingles have been bouncing around in my head for 50 years.

I got 17, but I did guess lucky on a couple.

And, believe it or not, I appeared on Candid Camera twice as a very young child. They came to my nursery school (so I guess I was about 4 years old) in New York and I got picked a couple of times. Too bad that was long before we had the ability to tape shows. My parents tried to take a photo of the (B&W) TV screen while I was on!

I got 20, but number 11 is wrong. It was Jack Weinberg, not Bob Dylan. I only know that because I lost a bar bet once when I said it was Abbie Hoffman.

20, but Joe Namath was a guess.

I had an advantage because I am 62, so all these crazy things were part of my life.

20, but I did wonder if it was Bob Dylan, so thanks for clarifying that it wasn't

I loved Pogo when I was too little to understand it and when I was old enough to get Walt Kelly's humor. Walt Kelly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I got all twenty also but I would have bet Abbie Hoffman too.

Scored 19 - missed #19 (candid camera) for some reason... senior moment here, too. Or maybe lack of TV watching at key times...

20. Had no idea who said so, but knew I wasn't to be trusted for the past 21 years.

Bonus Question~

RE: Maynard G Krebbs

On the show The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, what was the title of the movie that he was often talking about?

17. I always thought it was Mick Jagger who warned against trusting 30+'s.
