    It doesn't work. Do you have another link? BY the way, I wish TV land would show The Muppet Show. It's would be a perfect addition to their channel.

    It's a trivia game to promote TMS Season 3 DVD. I did quite good. 8 out of 10. But, I didn't know Piggy was skilled in the art of "Pig-Wan-Do"

    I know. I just wish the link above worked so I could take the test.

    Edit: Found it. http://www.tvland.com/games/trivia/index.jhtml?button=20&trivia_id=20

    Anyway, my results were

    You got 10 correct out of 10 questions!

    You are Trivia Gold: A True TV Land Trivia Champion!


    They need to ask harder questions. I wonder if they ask different or more questions when you take it again?

    WHOA! One of the questions is WRONG! It asks "Frank Oz provides the voice for which most-admired Muppet?" The choices are Kermit, Bunsen, Rowlf, and Piggy, and it says the answer is Rowlf... :smirk:

    Otherwise a cool quiz! I like it a lot!

    Aargh! This thing annoys the hec out of me with its endless Flash Movies. Additionally...
    Kermit and Piggy didn't agree to get married, that was part of the plot ofManhattan Melodies, so it was only part of the onstage performance. They agreed to break up, which is why we get the heartrending song Saying Goodbye.
    The Swedish Chef suffered a scar on his face from a cooking explosion? Preposterous. If this were true, then where's the scar on all the Swedish Chef action figures and ensuing merchandise?

    They should've taken the time to check their facts before posting this quiz.

    Interestingly, I don't know if this is common knowledge or not, I found the old movie book of Muppets Take Manhattan recently and at the end just after the wedding scene, they show Kermit asking Gonzo why he didn't play the minister. Gonzo admits the man who conducted the ceremony was a real minister and that Kermit and Piggy are now really married! Kermit promptly gulps, shrugs, then goes into "What better way could anything end..."

    Plus there's photos of Kermit, Gonzo and Piggy talking, clearly just after the wedding scene. It seems possible that this was the original ending intended, but they backed off of it! This is further strengthened by the fact that we see Statler and Waldorf trying to help Kermit snap out of his amnesia (obviously that wasn't in the final movie either).

    Btw, the quiz is great! Not too easy or too difficult. Though they do need to check their answers before posting! :)

    That's awesome, heralde! Do you happen to have links to any of those pictures?

    I don't have a scanner at the moment unfortunately. However, I did just start a thread on this in the Classic Muppets section, which has all the dialogue in the scene (it's so incredibly touching, I highly recommend!). Maybe someone else from Muppet Wiki or elsewhere will see it and be able to share.

    Factoids = Wrongtoids

    Here's another "Wrongtoid" from the quiz:

    "The Muppet Show became the place where many top celebrities of the time would ask to perform. Some of the major stars who performed with the muppets were Orsen Welles, Richard Pryor, Christopher Reeves and Vincent Price."

    Orsen Welles and Richard Pryor appeared in the Muppet Movie, not show.

    And what's up with question?

    "Where does Gonzo live?

    Behind the Muppet Theater stage
    In a mansion
    Cigar Box
    With Animal"


    A: Cigar Box

    Like many questions in this, this is a really weird question, compounded by the fact that none of the answers are actually correct. But in case anyone doesn't know it's alluding to an early version of Gonzo called "cigar box frackle" in The Great Santa Claus Switch.

    Dude, I think we're all getting different questions! I didn't have any of the ones you guys mentioned. :confused:

    Questions

    Yes,

    There are bunch of questions and each time you take the quiz you will get a random sample of questions. Try taking the quiz again, and again. I took me 3 or 4 cycles to see questions I had already answered.

    There are also more "Factoids" as well.

    Cooking Explosion! Bork! Bork! Bork!

    :hungry: Okay, I got the "Where did the Swedish Chef get his scar?" question from the quiz and chose that he had no scar. Maybe this was somehow mentioned somewhere in a program, but this is the first I've heard of it. 9 soft-ball questions and then that odd one. Does anybody know about the Chef burning his face in a cooking explosion? :confused: :eek:

    I have never heard of that!
