How Much Do You Know About the Golden Girls?
by Heather Cahill

Are you a "Golden Girls" aficionado? Take this quiz to test your knowledge of the show.

Even if you did not watch "The Golden Girls" when they were first on television, you may have been interested enough to look them up because of the wealth of internet memes spawned by the ladies of Miami. Betty White, the only living Golden Girl and former Playboy Bunny (didn't know that, did you?), continues to garner laughs online and on television. And Dorothy's savage dry humor, as played by Bea Arthur, is fodder for the numerous memes using her lines from the show.

But here's a little background. Read carefully - some of this just might be on the quiz. "The Golden Girls" was a television sitcom that first aired in the fall of 1985. The show ran for seven seasons and a total of 180 episodes. The stellar cast included Bea Arthur, who (as we already mentioned) played Dorothy Zbornak; Betty White, who played Rose Nylund; Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche Devereaux; and Estelle Getty, who played Dorothy's mother, Sophia Petrillo. Interesting factoid: Estelle Getty, who played Bea Arthur's mother in the show, was actually a year younger than Arthur.

So, you think you've got what it takes to hang with "The Golden Girls"? Take this quiz to find out.
