Traveling back to the 50s, you'd find Lucy Ricardo in the Lucille Ball comedy, I Love Lucy. For fans of the '90s classics, you might be tuned into Seinfeld or Martin

For the children in all of us, you might've found yourself tuning into Disney Channel for Hilary Duff or Raven Symone in Lizzie McGuire, or That's So Raven, respectively. And who could forget about the singing sensation, Hannah Montana?

How could you forget the epic tales of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys or Xena: Warrior Princess? Some of these are easier to recognize than others, but just how many of these shows can you name?

Can you recognize a red-head mother as she croons about being a survivor? What about the comedian tasked with raising his sister's three children?
