14. I missed the Lone Ranger, because we only had one TV channel growing up, and it didn't carry that show.

That Nestles jingle was on Canadian tv as well, I knew that one. Even though the our candy bars are different, Nestles Chocolate was the same.

I ALMOST did not get that one right! For some reason, a voice inside my head kept telling me "a silver bullet"!

I didn't know that The reason the "music Died" was Buddy Holly's death! All I know of the song was the Drove the Chevy to the Levy and I knew that had to be the civil rights workers death.

Guess you are an old fogey too - just like me!

I got 14 out of 15. I didn't know the one about Route 66 although I can vaguely remember it on the TV. I think I must've been a tad young. Checking IMDB I see it ran 'til 1964 so I would've been 6? 7? when it went off the air.

I got them all, but I'm weird and I was also born a decade too late
It helps that my parents were older than the norm when I was born, and that my oldest sibling is in his late 50s.
