never heard of Tristan and Isolde.
+2
Level 65

...It's an opera by Richard Wagner too.

Level 63

Is Tristan also spelled w/ an m on the end?
+1
Level 76
Aug 29, 2013
There's a separate unrelated work called Tristam Shandy, which you might be thinking of.
+1
Level 74
Sep 26, 2013
That's TristRam Shandy. You still come across people called Tristram in the UK. If ever you do come across one, give them a slap, they love it.
+2
Level 83
Dec 9, 2015
Yes, it is, sometimes.
+2
Level 66
Feb 4, 2016
It is sometimes spelled Tristram, just as Isolde is also sometimes spelled Isoude or Iseult. It's basically an older version of Lancelot and Guinevere.
+5
Level 31
Jul 30, 2013
I think Will and Kate should be accepted. That's the first thing I went for.
+2
Level 75
Sep 25, 2014
+2. That was my obvious answer.

Level 74

just no

Level 37
Sep 4, 2013
Like the quiz. It was fun. Got 21 out of 24. Missed Marx and Engels. Did not know Tristan & Isolde or Statler & Waldorf.
+7
Level 75
Sep 18, 2014
I love Statler and Waldorf, the cranky old Muppet hecklers.
+4
Level 67
Jun 23, 2015
Only 12% for Statler & Waldorf... I'm shocked!
+1
Level 72
Feb 4, 2016
I was really happy to see these guys get a shout out. I'm not sure they ever even got mentioned by name in the show. I can see why people didn't know who they were.
+1
Level 65
Aug 24, 2017
I seem to recall Statler & Waldorf are the first names. Surnames, respectively, are Hilton & Astoria.
+3
Level 76
Jun 9, 2019
I'm pretty sure that those are indeed their first names, but I don't think they've been given official last names. I do know that Waldorf's is almost certainly not "Astoria," because that's his wife's name.
+1

love statler and waldorf and will and grace

Level 55

Roy and Dale (Rogers) for us old guys!
+1
Level 75
Sep 18, 2014
More for us old folks - Lenny and Squiggy, Beany and Cecil, Lucy and Desi, Gable and Lombard, Bogey and Bacall, Gidget and Moondoggie, Seals and Crofts, Chad and Jeremy, Peter and Gordon...
+1
Level 88
Feb 11, 2015
Yeah, I typed Roy 3 times before I realized it was wrong. Then went to Hill and Dale before I thought of the chipmunks.
+2
Level 81
Feb 7, 2016
Chip and Dale are from the same time period as Roy and Dale.
+1
Level 76
Jun 9, 2019
Chip 'n' Dale have been around since 1943, only a few years after Roy Rogers's film debut. If you're old enough to know one, you're young enough to know the other ;)

Level 75
Sep 18, 2014
I'd never heard of Itchy and Scratchy so I googled it, and now I know why I didn't know it - I've never seen an episode of the Simpsons. No idea why, just never have taken the time to check it out.
+1
Level 45
Oct 9, 2014
For the 'Dale' question, it took me forever to get Chip. All I could think of was hill....

Ya tim'rous beastie.

+1
Level 51
Oct 25, 2016
same hill and dale is all I could come up with
+1
Level 62
Feb 4, 2016
What about Hall and Oates?
+5
Level 78
Feb 4, 2016
You don't have to be a Marxist to think it a bit sad (just from a knowledge of history perspective) that far more people know Mary-Kate and Ashley than Marx and Engels.
+4
Level 65
Feb 4, 2016
How do only 24% of people know about the Communist Manifesto?
+3
Level 84
Sep 23, 2016
What's that?

Level 65
Sep 5, 2016
Was I the only one thinking of Tucker & Dale?
+1
Level 66
Nov 17, 2016
I think I've spent too long reading textbooks, I tried Rang & Dale's Pharmacology before I thought of Chip

Does no one remember the muppets!?!

The evil Russians in the Rocky/Bullwinkle cartoons.
+1
Level 32
Dec 17, 2017
My mind went to Sex and the City and I typed Big
+1
Level 70
Jul 4, 2017
Hill and dale? Chip and dale?
+1
Level 23
Nov 4, 2017
I am only 11 years old, and the first one that i immediately guessed correctly was "Laverne and Shirley." Its sad that nobody my age knows what Seinfeld, Laverne and Shirley, and I dream of Jeannie is.
+3
Level 71
Sep 20, 2018
It's not sad, tv programs are unimportant rubbish....... It's sad when young people know nothing about real and important people from history that did good for humanity.
+6
Level 76
Jun 9, 2019
Yes, like Statler and Waldorf!
+3
Level 66
Dec 21, 2017
I think one reason that Marx & Engels has such a low percentage is that in many cases, Marx gets all the credit. I had learned of Marx and the Communist Manifesto many years before finding out there was a second author.
+1
Level 83
Aug 31, 2018
And I think people taking this quiz are more interested in other topics. They expect Tv characters and other celebreties.

Level 65

This should be renamed to "Somewhat famous duos if you are 40+ years old and American"

Yeah. Marx and Engels are super popular among American baby boomers.
