2. Barry Nelson in a 1954 US TV production of Casino Royale.

An actor called Bob Simmons did the signature gun barrel opening scene for the first three Bond films, so you could say he was the first actor to portray James Bond in the movies.

Isn't the thumb of one hand on a G.I. Joe backwards and it was done for copyright purposes to know when someone duplicates them?
As for 7, I don't remember the spelling, but it's something like Puncinello.

3) The amusements parks started in Texas. The guy who started them used the term Six Flags to represent the six (countries) flags that had flown over Texas through it's history.

WOW, Lambert and Stans answers wasn't up there when I posted. Now it says they posted a few minutes before I did. It's too late for me to delete my post. Good one guys.

Scott, what is the answer to #18 on the Worlds Hardest Trivia Thread? I still think about it and you posted it months ago.

Let's see who was the first to get each question right, and which questions have yet to be answered:

1. The Mighty Fool

2. Dr. Chutney

3. Lambertmoon - but we still need the particular flags for extra credit!

4. StanAlger

5. Dr. Chutney

6. StanAlger

7. The Might Fool - although the French name is more recognizable to most people: Harlequin

8.

9.

10. Greg Arce

Vandy Grift - yes, it was Soupy Sales.

That just leaves #8 and #9!

3) The other two flags are French and Spanish. I cheated and looked it up.

Mighty's answer to # 9 was The Howdy Doody show. is that wrong?

I thought it was Howdy Doody, too. Isn't that what the small audience of kids was called in that show?

Sorry, but the term "Peanut Gallery" didn't originate with the Howdy Doody show. I don't doubt, however, that the Howdy Doody show gave the term its widest exposure ever.
