If someone had told me I would run one out of the twelve categories I would have picked TOP TV SHOWS 1968 even though I only turned five that year. Thank you to the players for completing it, even though it played last, so that I could add 6000 to my score.

Some more that are not completely obscure 50 years later are:
SpoilerShow
Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In
The Beverly Hillbillies
Bewitched
My Three Sons
Ironside
Dragnet
The F.B.I.
Tough break for you Nick on DD2 as a get there could have allowed you the luxury to bet small on DD3 and perhaps have the lead for the FJ! round.

The FJ! category had me brainstorming what I could recall of the many animated films I saw that decade. It was a heavy dose of Disney & Pixar with Space Jam filling out the list. I liked my chances to get it.

When the clue was revealed and I saw “Hamlet” my thought was, “Oh no, not Shakespeare.” Fortunately, I’ve seen the movie and the comparison previously to join the players on the solve.

cheezguyty: That is 61 clues seen and 3/3 on the FJ! clues for 3 consecutive days. Is the previous occurrence of that distinction recent or further back?

Earlier in the week it was noticed and posted on the board that the line-up of J! players for the week had a Katherine shown as playing on Thursday. That spoiler did seem to pan out that Catherine would not win today as a Catherine & Katherine game did not seem like something the powers would do unless necessary.

Never seen the movie or Hamlet but a vague idea the lion had an uncle involved led me to the right movie.

I turned one in 1968 but a misspent youth of afternoon reruns made for an easy sweep of the TV category. I got Andy Griffith in LL yesterday as well.

Didn't recognize anything at all in that Library category. Didn't know there even WAS a Brown University, or whatever that library was at $400.

I ran the "Back" and Singers categories.

Me on Back for $400: "What is Farmers, bum ba dum ba bum bum bum?"

Me on Back for $600: "What is Chiliiiii's baby back ribs? BARBECUE SAUCE."

Lach Trash: Deepak Chopra (definitely a Hawley-Smoot name for me).

1990s Animated Films is sure to be a category to break me out of my FJ! slump. Took me a while, but FINALLY it clicked about 3/4 of the way through.

How did I miss this FJ? I felt so dumb at the reveal that I considered inventing an Anglican liturgical holy day so I could tell everyone I missed this game due to religious obligations.

Ended up saying The Emperor's New Groove (released in December 2000) since every other Disney animation I could think of has a source story. I've never seen The Lion King (or Emperor's New Groove, for that matter). But I'm obviously aware of its existence and would have guessed it with 100% confidence if it had only occurred to me.

Ran the 1968 TV category. Pre-called Brady Bunch, but I knew there were plenty of other options. Loved the distaste with which Catherine finally called for the first clue in that column after all alternatives had been exhausted. Like Mark, I'm glad they were able to finish the category even with a TS eating up clock.

I also enjoyed Nick's reaction when Catherine got in ahead of him on Well-Tempered Clavier.

I'm curious about Catherine's wager. She opened the door for Nick to get ahead if she missed. I'm not sure what she thought the upside was. She was a fun player and I'll miss her, but I like Diana too.

Not that it matters for tonight, but in the future:
The Brady Bunch debuted September 1969.
It never made the top 30 for any of its five seasons.

If Disney borrowed thematic elements from Hamlet, they also owe a debt to this li'l guy:

I appreciate the "Disney says" wording of the clue.

Dartmouth, Nick?!? If I'd know Catherine was a fellow alum, I'd have been rooting for her before. Well, until she went up against a Boardie, at least.

The last time that happened was QF2-QF4 of the 2014 College Championship. I couldn't find a single previous occurrence in the Archive outside of a tournament.

Right there with you. I spent 30 seconds saying, "Hamlet? Hamlet? .... Hamlet?" Nothing ever came to mind.

Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Dang. I just looked up that start date last week and already I'm off by a year.

I was glad to see Mission: Impossible in the TV category, as it's my favorite show. Disappointed to not be able to remember Sebastian Cabot's first name, though.

Instaget from the word "Hamlet".
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

Animated movies is perhaps the worst FJ category I could imagine because I haven't seen any since I was a kid and didn't even like Disney then. And because they're so popular, it's not a category like opera one can be half-competent in simply by memorizing 10-12 facts.

I would even bet $0 on it if I were in first and not in lock-out, risking everlasting ridicule. So I went with Hamlet->Elsinore->Little Mermaid->Oh that's Hans Christian Andersen->I've Got Nothing->Well, it's Disney, so maybe the movie had nothing to do with the story and they bought rights or something->How about Little Mermaid II: Electric Booglaoo? I've heard of Lion King, obviously, but I guess there are some Pavlovs I need to know that go with it.

OriginaL? Yet rips off both Hamlet and Osamu Tezuka's Kimba the White Lion? I would say it is the least original of the Disney classics.

To add to that, #4:

Definite keister covering with the "Disney says" wordage there. Also, I dare not look, but I wonder how many times it's already been mentioned on the 'official' social sites by now :lol:
