About This Quiz

"I feel the need...the need for speed!" The 1980s was a huge decade when it came to TV and film. While there were tons of blockbusters and sitcoms that everyone loved, it was largely due to the teen sensations who made their works iconic. From Tom Cruise to Brooke Shields, do you know these '80s teen stars?

If you think about the greatest TV shows of the '80s, you might name Growing Pains, Family Ties, and Charles in Charge. When it comes to the films that were lighting up the movie screen, you might remember Top Gun, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Back to the Future. While these are some of the biggest works of the decade, they shot to fame for their young, but talented casts. 

Kirk Cameron and Scott Baio were favorites on the TV screen while Michael J. Fox brought his talents from the TV screen to the movie screen. The elite '80s group of young talent, often referred to as the Brat Pack, was led by actors Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, and Ally Sheedy. This young group of stars was responsible for films like The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, and Pretty in Pink.

These teen actors and actresses shone throughout the decade, but how well do you know them? Could you name the actor who starred in Top Gun? What about the beautiful red-head who led the casts of Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink? There's only one way to find out! Let's travel back to the 1980s and see if you can name these popular teen stars!
