This need to be featured. It was this song that got me in to naming the countries - and certain lines still pop up when doing the 196 quiz! One small change could you make Philippine (singular) work instead of plural, as that's how Yakko says it - the Philippines islands, Taiwan.

Tibet gets lit up a bit when guessed, but China lights all of China up when guessed, same with Dahomey / Benin.

Asia doesn't light Borneo Sumatra and New Guinea up.

The Spanish Sahara is a place like Yugoslavia is/was.

Also for the two dashes, you could also grey it out.

It'd be good if there was a dot for Tobago as well.

Also, it's "you're"*. "Your" is possessive, "you're" is a contraction.

Nice quiz, nominated! I've listened to the song many times, but don't know it completely by heart. I only got the chance to get 99, when I think I could have done much better if I had more time to think it out and sing it over in my head.

Maybe add another minute or 2 before it gets featured?

I mean, yeah? Why not? It's a memory quiz about how well you know this particular song, and it's meant to be difficult. Lots of people have listened to the song more recently than that, and no one is stopping you from going over to Youtube and watching the song again to refresh yourself before taking the quiz.

Mar 28, 2024
In the 90s there was an educational/comedy show for kids called Animaniacs. There's a portion called "yakko's world" which is this song and commonly used to teach American children geography. Obviously, disclaimers are given as to the accuracy of the geography, but the song does give most the countries in the world. And it's very catchy which is good for kids.

Apr 13, 2024
Since Asia doesn't light up when he sings that, like every other place mentioned in the song, I assumed it was part of the phrase "Bangladesh, Asia," as in "Bangladesh, which is in Asia," rather than as its own place. I figure it was added in just to make it rhyme with "Malaysia."
