This is a quick one (I was going to say a quickie but that would have gone in a whole different direction). So here's a bit of a challenge. What follows are 14 full names of characters from cartoons, the world of toys, television and the like. See how many you already know before you read the full post. Resist the temptation to plug them into the internet. If you can get five you are a genius. Here we go:
Barbie (the doll)
Cap'n Crunch (the cereal)
Peppermint Patty from the comic strip Peanuts
Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street
The Rich Uncle Moneybags from the board game Monoploy
The Michelin Man (Guy made out of tires)
The Skipper on Gilligan's Island
The Professor of Gilligan's Island

The Pillsbury Dough Boy, his wife and his two kids
The patient in the game 'Operation'.
Mr. Clean's first name.
