    11/15 right! I never actually watched the Lone Ranger or Red Skeleton, I'm too young for the Beatles debut, and I just plain forgot the Timex one, but I do remember the old ads now.

    I'm 34 and I got 13 out of 15. What does that make me? I guess my Dad made sure to expose me to the classics.
