Pop Culture Trivia: The Animation Edition

The next 15 questions deal with the world of animation.  If you are a Pop Culture Trivia virgin and are about to be touched for the very first time, please read all the rules before taking the quiz:

* Along with the Internet, the use of books, magazines, notes, data stored on a computer, etc. to help you come up with the answers is not allowed.

* Please read the questions carefully. For example, if you mistakenly give a performer's name instead of the movie/TV show, the answer will be marked as incorrect.

* If you give a final answer along the lines of "If it isn't The Simpsons, it's Family Guy", it will be marked as incorrect.

* Unless I ask for the correct spelling, you won't lose points for any misspellings as long as I can decipher your answer. If I have no idea what you mean, I'll email you for verification. If I don't hear from you, your answer will be marked as incorrect.

* If you are the only player to get a particular question correct, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their final answers to me will earn 2 bonus points. 

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to ultfan@gmail.com no later than Friday, June 18th, at 11:59 PM EST.

* To make it easier for me to add up your score, please cut and paste the game into the body of an email and type your answers after the point value of each question. Although I will email the answers only to those who take the quiz, I will still post the names of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers here.

Have fun and good luck!
