The Baby Boomer's Guide to the Galaxy: 50s TV

This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

TheBabyBoomersGuidetotheGalaxy50sTV Photo Before Generation X or Generation Y, and all the other recent demographic constructs, stood the Baby Boomers. While the 1946-1964 era marks the most commonly accepted timeline for our group, some observers argue that two distinct cultural generations exist within that period with the actual "Baby Boomers" coming from the period 1942-1953. I was born in 1947, smack dab in the middle of that first wave, adopted through Catholic Charities in New York City, raised by 1st generation Italian and Greek parents, and spending my formative years in the 'City That Never Sleeps'. This series will be a guide to my galaxy, focusing on key cultural and media bookmarks within that six decade period known as my life. Welcome.

Rather than a list-based quiz or an attempt at a comprehensive review of 50s TV this quiz is based on my personal favorites among the shows I watched, and can remember, LOL. I was 3 at the beginning of the decade, so most of the references will be shows in the latter part of that era.

Sources include Wikipedia, IMDB,, and other web-based search engines.

Please reconsider Awards for quizes where the words are not filler - they are words related directly to the question. Ex:" sister and I would plop down on the living room carpet in front of ......" Is this a clue? Do I know you and your sister?
