I'm surprised more people got Maradona than Madonna. But that's probably because the latter doesn't appear on the quiz.

Corey Feldman was in a couple of 80s movies, like The Fox and the Hound, The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, and even Gremlins.

Corey Haim was an actor who was also in The Lost Boys, which is where the "two Coreys" thing got its start. He later dealt with drug addiction and died in 2010.

Corey Hart was a singer who actually had 9 songs hit the Billboard Top 40, but then faded into obscurity shortly afterwards.

Yeah, I had vaguely heard of Croey Feldman and managed to guess him, the other two names mean absolutely nothing to me.
Level 92
Aug 21, 2020
Corey Feldman and Corey Haim did like 10 movies together, were friends and spent a lot of time together outside of their acting roles as celebrities.

I didn't remember Corey Hart.

the "detective" in magnum PI is actually Thomas Magnum, not Tom Selleck (who is the actor).
Level 68
Mar 14, 2020
Therefor the answer is Selleck, because the quiz is named celebrities of the 80's. So actual persons
Level 65
Aug 13, 2020
That Michael J. Fox clue is poor.
Level 92
Aug 21, 2020
Seriously? Those were the two things that catapulted him to superstardom. If you don't know who he is from Family Ties and Teenwolf, then you don't know people in the 80's.
Level 92

I couldn't come up with Gary Coleman. I kept trying different spellings of Emmanuel Lewis.

There's no record of Bo Derek ever modeling for anything but Playboy magazine. Please change her title to actress.
