Our survey says...

As you may or may not know, after 4 years of being off-the-air, the quiz show Family Fortunes (the UK version of Family Feud) is returning to ITV1 later this year, with Vernon Kay as presenter. The show will be produced by UK format owner talkbackTHAMES. If it is true that it is been brought back "by public demand", then this is a very rare case of the ITV network listening to its viewers.

This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best game show ever, and it's mainly because of the ridiculous answers that the contestants sometimes gives out, many of which became true gems.

To celebrate the return of this great game-show, here are some of the best silly answers:

We ask 100 people to name:

A famous cowboy
Buck Rogers

A song with "Moon" in the title
Blue Suede Moon

A reason to dig a hole in the road

A famous bridge
The Bridge over Troubled Waters

A fast method of communicating
24-hour parcel post

A well-known TV soap

A famous Royal

A bird with a long neck
Naomi Campbell

A number you have to memorise

Something you put on walls

Something that makes you scream

A domestic animal

A famous 'Arthur'

Something a Frenchman would say
En Garde

Something that uses micro chips
Fish fryer

Something that the bride should know before they get married
His name

Something a blind man might use
A sword

Something you wouldn't try even once
Sex in a train

Something you open other than a door
Your bowels

A way to toast somebody
Over a fire (it was the 6th most popular answer!)

And I'll finish off with my all-time favourite:

Something that will frighten Dracula
Bob Monkhouse

Welcome one and all!


I'm Lee Glover. I'm a 29-year-old Englishman (well, I'm actually 75% English and 25% Italian), and I am a HUGE fan of classic American theatrical cartoons and classic UK television.

In this blog, I will be posting my views of cartoons and television programmes (hardly any of the recent crap will feature in my blog, especially "Big Brother" - yuck!) with screenshots, clips, and DVD reviews. It won't be daily posts, just the occasional post here and there. I might add some unrelated posts, such as silent comedy.

I hope you will enjoy reading my little blog.
