About This Quiz

Whether or not you grew up in the 50s and 60s, you've more than likely seen most of these iconic TV shows. Unsurprisingly, a couple of them may rank among your all-time favorites. But do you think you can recall the names of these shows from a single image? Because the genres were somewhat limited at the time, some shows may seem eerily similar to one another. Consider the most popular genre of the time--Westerns. There were literally dozens of different programs with a Western theme during these two decades. Would you be able to tell the difference between "Gunsmoke," "Bonanza," or "Have Gun - Will Travel?"  Do you think you can identify Oliver Douglas or Jed Clampett? Just a hint, one is on "Green Acres" and the other is on "The Beverly Hillbillies."

"I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners" took on the comedic side of home life in the 50s. You've likely seen them both, but could tell them apart with only a single photo?

From wholesome to mysterious, the 50s and 60s produced some of the most dramatic and iconic television shows of all time. They transcend generations and have helped to shape the world. Let's take a little time away from "Nick at Night" to take this quiz and see if your tenure as a couch potato has paid off!
