    True.

    Actually, I think it's false... toasters don't toast toast, they toast bread. Sometimes bagels and frozen waffles, but not toast.

    Sorry. :sympathy:
    The answer was false (toasters toast bread, and toast comes out of toasters), but you can have a turn anyway (it was your turn after all;))

    No, I got the answer wrong. Kathy Greenwood's number one fan can have the turn since she got the answer correct!

    Hahaha! Back to the good old "I think D'Snowth is a girl" routine! How I love it!

    Okay, here we go...

    True or false. The character of George Costanza is a fictionalized version of Seinfeld co-creator Larry David?

    Oops. Ah geez, sorry for the wrong gender. Dang I feel stupid now.

    I say true. I think I heard/read that a lot of Larry David's personalities are in all the Seinfeld characters.

    Don't be, I've been thinking about getting a sex-change operation so the next time somebody thinks I'm a girl, they'll be right for once! :p
    You're right. Even during the taping on an early episode, Jason Alexander was reading a script, and was a little confused about what was happening to his character, George, so he goes to Larry David and asks him how is he going to pull this off because stuff like this doesn't happen to anybody, and he responds with "What are you talking about? It happened to me!" Later, Alexander said in an interview "That's when I realized that George Costanza was the embodiedment of Larry David."

    Even on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" all the stuff that happens to Larry David on the show actually happened to him at one point. That's just crazy!

    Okay, I'll ask a question now. And it's another history related question!

    At one point, Adolf Hitler actually commended the United States Of America for segregating blacks as he also thought blacks were inferior to whites.

    (Sorry if I was getting a little controversial with this people)

    Correct! Before Japan bombed Pearl Harbor which made the United States to declare war on Japan which made Germany and Italy to declare war on the U.S. Hitler admired the U.S. for using segregation, which was also the same thing Hitler was using against the Jews, Communists, and others were he felt were inferior.

    Thats interesting.
    True or False: The first cartoon featuring Mickey Mouse was Steamboat Willie?

    (also, ryhoyarbie, a few posts back, you said "I'll let the little lady ask her question", or something like that were you refering to me?)
  12. ryhoyarbie

    ryhoyarbie Active Member

    True.

    And I was referring to D'Snowth. I apologized for the gender problem.

    Actually, it's false. The first one was technically Plane Crazy. The reason? Both it and Gallopin' Gaucho aired originally without sound. Then with the advent of sound, Steamboat Willie aired, making it the first short cartoon with sound added, as the first two were later dubbed over with sound in following years.

    Right. your turn wwfpooh.

    True or False: Wally Cox was the voice of Superman-esque canine superhero, Underdog in the character's original heyday.

    I'm delighted to see that my thread has gained a following during my absence, and thank you everybody for keeping it on track and running smoothly. :)

    As for Pooh's question I really don't know if Wally Cox voiced Underdog originally, but I'll take a guess at false.
  17. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    Actually, just as Underdog wears red & blue, the answer to said question is actually true. XD

    Wallace (Wally) Maynard Cox did originally voice Underdog, because at the time of the show's creation, small-framed and timid people weren't in high demand & so, General Mills--the sponsor of the Total Television (or known to fans as T-TV) series and its companion segments--combed everywhere for their star, only to find him in Wally Cox, who was known at the time for not only being a Hollywood Squares semi-regular, but for being known as mild-manner teacher, Mr. Peepers.

    But sadly, the voice of Underdog (and his other identity as "humble and loveable" Shoeshine Boy) ironically ended up dying by--of all things--a pill overdose.

    This brought on the heart attack that ultimately resulted in Cox's passing. However, Cox got his wish--to be cremated alongside Hollywood friend, Marlon Brando--and both men's remains were eventually scattered into the vast recesses of Death Valley, CA.

    Does anyone else want to make a statement?

    Okay. In Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, three of the Dwarfs' names begin with the letter D. This will test your Disney knowledge. :D
