Who's That 80s TV Character?
by Weston Whitener
CBS

When it comes to television, there were many great decades, and one of the best was the 1980s. Characterized by many family sitcoms, crime drama, the rise of animated series, and the beginning of SciFi, it's no wonder that so many unforgettable characters and personalities emerged during that decade.

Some of the most popular characters include Steve Urkel from "Family Matters," Peggy Bundy from "Married with Children," Maxwell Klinger from "M*A*S*H," Zack Morris from "Saved by the Bell," Sam Maline from "Cheers," Rose Nylund from "Golden Girls," and Alex Keaton from "Family Ties." Many of us either grew up watching these shows, reruns or remakes and that has contributed to the longevity and popularity of quite a few of the characters.

You might not have been around in the 1980s, but if you were given a clue about some of the most memorable characters from that time, would you be able to identify who they were correctly? Well in this quiz, you are going to be.
