Were you a "Seinfeld" aficionado? Was Kramer your favorite member of the bunch? If you think you can hang with the gang, take this quiz.

Every sitcom has the lovable doofus that provides comic relief. In "Friends," it was Joey; in "The Flintstones," it was Barney; and in Seinfeld, it was Kramer. Although all members of the Seinfeld cast were funny, watchers knew that a scene with Kramer was certain to provide a level of comedy that exceeded all other scenes. But who, exactly, was Kramer?

Cosmo Kramer was dubbed by Elaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, to be a "hipster doofus," which is, if you think about it, quite an interesting combination. A hipster is someone who has a unique sense of fashion and mannerisms, and a doofus is.... well... a doofus. Kramer's hair, his way of dressing, and the occasional Cuban cigar, as well as his one of a kind way of getting himself into a world of trouble, made him the comedic relief he was.

Played by Michael Richards, and based on "Seinfeld" creator, Larry David's former neighbor, the character of Kramer is generally agreed to be one of the most entertaining television characters of all time.

So, are you ready to test your Kramer knowledge? Let's get started.
