Grab that super-sugary cereal and let’s watch some cartoons. This week, we’re featuring 1970s Cartoon Trivia. You know ’em, you love ’em.
The 1970s represents the end of an era, of sorts. In the 1980s, cartoons would be forever changed as they became 30-minute long toy commercials. But hey, let’s enjoy this one, brief, shining moment before we dive into those, shall we?
As always, it’s three rounds of ten questions each. Each round (The Dorky, Geeky, and Nerdy rounds, respectively) is harder than the one before it. You’ve got 5 seconds to come up with an answer. Simple and yet challenging. Think of us as your private Pub Trivia Night.
When you’re done with this week’s show about 1970s Cartoon Trivia, can you spare a couple of seconds to fill out our super short, two-question survey? It’s located down below and helps us balance the show’s fun with it’s challenge. Thanks!

Hey gang, I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this is episode 126 of the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia Podcast. This week, we have those icons of Saturday Mornings, 1970s cartoons. Some are good and some are really bad. But they were good enough at the time. These cartoons were also the end of an era as the 1980s would bring us more toy-focus cartoons.
As always, it’s thirty questions in three rounds. A Dorky round, a Geeky round, and a Nerdy round. When we’re done, be sure to visit us at DorkyGeekyNerdy.com. From there, you’ll find more content, quizzes, and how to reach out to me on Social Media.
