Answers!

Yes, as promised, The Game is over. Yes, the answers shall be revealed. Of course, a winner has been confirmed as well.

First, the answers:

1) "D'oh!"
Homer Simpson. Pretty obvious & easy.

2) "Zoinks!"
Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. Also easy.

3) "Yabba Dabba Doo!"
Fred Flintstone. Or, if you didn't get this one...Leave now.

4) "Wokka Wokka Wokka!"
Fozzie Bear! I still don't know which episode of the Muppet Show where he first says it. It's certainly not in the first 3 seasons.

5) "Excellent..."
Mr. Burns, from the Simpsons. If it had ended with a "!" it would've been Bill & Ted. But it didn't, and it wasn't.

6) "Transform and roll out!"
Optimus Prime, from Transformers.

7) "For me to poop on!"
Triumph The Insult Comic Dog. He got his start on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
8) "Get R Done!"
Larry The Cable Guy.

9) "Schwing!"
Wayne Cambell & Garth Alger from Wayne's World. Shyeah.

10) "I didn't do it."
Oh my, another Simpsons catchphrase! This time it's Bart Simpson's. A lesser-known one that was his "signature line" that got him into 15 minutes of fame in the 5th season episode "Bart Gets Famous."

11) "Next Time, Gadget...Next time..."
Dr. Claw, his line at the end of every episode of Inspector Gadget.

12) "That's what she said."
Micheal Scott from The Office, played by Steve Carrell.

13) "Bite my shiny metal ass!"
Bender from Futurama.

14) "Spoon!"
The Tick. Damn, I loved that cartoon.

15) "It stinks!"
Here's where it started getting tough. This line belongs to Jay Sherman, the star of The Critic.

16) "Neeeeeoooow!"
These last 5 had stumped the 3 people who actually entered, and probably psyched out the rest of you.

This vid should give you the answer:



It's from Jeff Dunham's famous puppet Peanut. It's defined as the sound that's made when a joke flies over someone's head.

17) "Adventure!"
Flapjack, from recent CN show The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. A newer entry to the Catchphrase lexicon, it's one of the most often quoted words spoken by the title character.

18) "Ooba-Dooba!"
Geroge Jetson. Yes, George had a catchphrase other than "Jane, stop this crazy thing!" It's much more obscure, and was only uttered in the original run in the 60s. It was sort of the "Jinkies" of his time, in the far off year of 2002.

19) "Here's the thing..."
Adrian Monk, from Monk. I didn't know that this was his catchphrase either until someone pointed it out to him in the episode "Mr. Monk Goes To The Office." For all you Monk fans...listen to how he starts any sentence when his OCD prevents him from doing something, or giving an explanation for something.

20) "...Brings To The Party."
Alton Brown. Yes, it's pretty subtle, but watch Good Eats sometime and notice how often he mentions what some flavor "Brings to the party," with "the party" meaning the particular dish he's making.


And there's your answers. How many of them did you have the thought "Dang! It's so obvious now?"

And the winner, with a score of 15/20 correct is none other than JoshC! Your prize?

Hmm...How bout that you are given the chance to post your own blog entry to Beaming For Bunnies!

It's a stretch, but It's still a prize, damnit. Pop me an email at beamingforbunnies@gmail.com Josh with the entry so I can post it up here. Anything goes, really. I don't care.

For the rest of you...Try harder next time & watch some more TV. :) You'll get your chance in the future.

Okay, I have all of Jeff Dunham's DVD's and that Neeoow one is tough depending on how it's read. Darn this tough game!!! :)

I am the winner?!

Mr. Burns, of course. I was sitting here wondering why you had two different Wayne Campbell quotes. Also, I have MST3K on the brain so I attributed "It stinks" there instead of The Critic. Even counting those two as correct I only got 13. Nice job Josh!
