I missed two. Good night, Chet and the Brylcreem one...I thought "a little dab will do ya" was for Dippity-Do. The options for Brylcreem were rather hilarious, btw.

I didn't know that about Joe Namath. I only remember him from Brady Bunch reruns. Fun quiz!

I missed 5. Same 2 that Zelda missed + the one about wonder bread, "He is You", and the Bob Dylan song.

At least I knew the Peter Pan answer!
Fun quiz indeed.

You know what, I think that slogan should be for Dippity-Do. Especially since the slogan immediately gets almost infinitely more clever. So the test-writer made at least one mistake. Who knows, maybe there are more. I just answered the Brylcreem one the way I did because it was the only slogan I recognized, even though, in the back of my mind, it didn't feel quite right.

I don't remember ever seeing Joe Namath on the Brady Bunch. Interesting.
