So, there were actually people who liked "Welcome Back, Kotter" enough to have them on their lunchbox? Perfectly fine show, but not the type that I would think would have that level of fandom.

Now THIS is a great quiz!! And when I was in the 1st grade did the Thermos that came with my Voltron lunch box ever suck. Had to ditch it and just throw in a Hi-C or Capri Sun.
Aug 25th, 2012 at 20:22 GMT
Awesome. I think I had a hand-me-down Ghostbusters lunchbox as a kid. Either that or my sister had just put Egon stickers over a plain lunchbox when she had it.
Aug 25th, 2012 at 20:30 GMT
I still have the Happy Days lunchbox in storage.
Aug 25th, 2012 at 21:03 GMT
how do you make a picture quiz like this?
Aug 25th, 2012 at 21:18 GMT
I'd love for others to suggest more ideas. If I get 20 of them (and I already have Ghostbusters), I can make a sequel. Or, if there are enough I could do another one for TV and one of just movies!

My personal favorite from elementary school was The Partridge Family. Pretty much any popular TV show had a lunch box back then (60s and 70s). Oh, and The Monkees. Fun quiz. You could even do TV shows by the decades. Howdy Doody is a classic lunch box from the 50s or 60s.

I had a Kung Fu lunchbox in kindergarten, which was a hand-me-down from the older kid next door (and yet, even to this day, I've never seen an entire episode of Kung Fu). By the time I was in first grade, though, I'd graduated up to my very own, brand new NFL helmets lunchbox (AFC on one side, NFC on the other). Those were the days . . .

I had an Alf lunchbox as a kid, sad not to see that one here!
Aug 27th, 2012 at 06:03 GMT
I had a Brady Bunch lunch pail back in 1970 when I was in kindergarten. Please avoid doing the math. Thank you.

How did 15.4 % miss Mork and Mindy? You can clearly read it at the bottom of the picture.
Aug 28th, 2012 at 18:01 GMT
For your sequel...Batman (Adam West version), Get Smart and the Roadrunner.
Aug 29th, 2012 at 13:07 GMT
Very happy to see the Hardy Boys Mysteries on here! I wish I had a lunch box with Shaun Cassidy's face on it.
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 04:20 GMT
brought back some memories with this one! I'd have to suggest Emergency! (had that one at one point) Hogan's Heroes (hand me down that I used in like 5th or 6th grade), and if memory serves, there were Scooby Doo and Captain Caveman ones in the late 70's/early 80's... and I have to believe that KISS had one. Heck, they have had everything else with their image on it!!!

I was quite surprised that Little house had it's own lunch box.
Sep 7th, 2012 at 12:40 GMT
Not trying to pick on the show Hee Haw. It had its fans, but I'm having a hard time picturing a little kid in a store looking at all the lunchboxes with cartoon characters, superheroes, and sitcom characters and saying, "I want that one." Fun quiz. (For a sequel, My Little Pony and Care Bears used to be very popular.) :)
Sep 10th, 2012 at 21:12 GMT
anybody else put Kate and Allie for the Hardy Boys?

I did a movie sequel to this quiz (it's in the user created section) but would love to do a second TV version. What lunchboxes did you have as a kid? What shows would you like to see in a sequel? What show are you absolutely shocked had a lunchbox? (Murder, She Wrote, anyone?)
Sep 13th, 2012 at 04:33 GMT
Was really hoping that was a Sealab lunch box. Also I'd love to meet the kid who brought a Little House on the Prairie lunch box to school.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 04:53 GMT
I had both the Welcome Back Kotter and the Mork and Mindy lunch boxes when I was in school. I also had a sweet Evel Knievel jumping over the Snake River Canyon. Other tv shows I'd like to see would be Ateam, Transformers, Scooby doo, and the Bionic woman/6 million $ man. I was kind of suprised seeing a Gomer Pyle lunch box on ebay once.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 06:40 GMT
What a great bunch of lunchboxes !!!
Sep 13th, 2012 at 08:57 GMT
Ahh Sporcleitus hits again - I loved flipper - but all I could think of was Skippy the bush kangaroo!
Sep 13th, 2012 at 09:33 GMT
Somewhere out there... Dave Batista is playing this Quiz.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 11:11 GMT
I didn't have a TV lunchbox, but I did have a kick-ass Close Encounters of the Third Kind one.. My sister did, however, have the Happy Days one.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 11:17 GMT
This quiz is too Muppet-centric!
Sep 13th, 2012 at 11:21 GMT
mmmmm...lunch. I loved that class.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 11:52 GMT
I remember one awesome day in elementary school when I peeled off the fading decal from my Rainbow Brite lunchbox to find a complete different Rainbow Brite decal underneath.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 12:04 GMT
very fun. 20-20... Only one I struggled with was Hee Haw and the title isn't quite obscured enough. I don't remember Buck and Roy looking like that and I'm pretty old
Sep 13th, 2012 at 12:39 GMT
I had the oh so popular US Mail lunch box.... My parents hated me.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:06 GMT
Buck looks a lot like Andy Griffith on that box. Almost missed Buck Rogers, but then I recognized Twiki.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:09 GMT
I had a puzzle with the same pic as that He-Man lunchbox.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:12 GMT
I still bring the Alf lunch box to work on occasion, people dig it.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:25 GMT
I had that Sesame Street lunch kit and then upgraded to the He-Man lunch kit.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:36 GMT
I missed Hee haw too. Thought it was The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo! And if I've learned one thing from watching Toy Hunter, it is that if you own all of these, and they have the thermos in tact, it's worth a fortune.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 13:54 GMT
I thought Hee Haw was Let's Make a Deal (the guy on the left looks like Monty Hall). I had the Six Million Dollar Man lunchbox/thermos, but I WISH I had that cool Alf lunchbox el_barto has.......
Sep 13th, 2012 at 14:08 GMT
I had a Batman lunchbox (Adam West incarnation) as well as a different Mork and Mindy. Another kid in class had an identical one, and one weekend I accidentally took hers home. Apparently she'd had milk in her thermos and didn't drink it, and since I never used mine, mom didn't open it until Sunday night. Wow, did that smell atrocious.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 14:08 GMT
I had that exact Dukes of Hazzard lunch box. It had a sweet Thermos also.
Sep 13th, 2012 at 14:11 GMT
I had the Good Times Lunchbox. I wonder if it was a boy or a girl who brought the Charlie's Angels lunchbox to school? BTW, this quiz really dates me.
