I can't be the only person looking at some of these pictures (Travola, Williams, Tomlin) and thinking, "They're so *young*!" (Except Big Bird, who I swear hasn't aged a day.)
Oct 2nd, 2010 at 15:27 GMT
That was Bruce Springsteen? Wow... I am completely unfamiliar with that look on him.
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 00:01 GMT
"Flip Wilson" looks a lot more like Ben Vereen or Pele.
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 01:38 GMT
I swore Pavarotti was Dom DeLuise and just assumed I was spelling it wrong. I enjoyed this quiz, despite the handicap of being born in 1979.
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 01:47 GMT
I thought Jesse jackson was Richard Roundtree (Shaft guy).
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 02:41 GMT
i've done the 90's, 80's, and 70's just now back to back to back. the further back you go, the less often the covers are photos.
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 03:48 GMT
@statephone - I noticed that making the quizzes. Each decade has an overall different look. I find it interesting to see how the photography, graphics, or artwork changed over time. I just started the version for the 60s. It sure looks dated.

Cher was a couple of faces ago...

I would accept Majors as an alternative for Farah Fawcett. She was just as well known by her married name.
Comment below threshold:

When it didn't accept Colombo, I moved on...
Oct 3rd, 2010 at 19:52 GMT
@ligluryjr - Falk played Columbo, and that has always been accepted.
Oct 4th, 2010 at 20:01 GMT
I could have sworn Flip Wilson was Gary Coleman. Oops.
Oct 5th, 2010 at 21:29 GMT
I was sure Flip Wilson was Hank Aaron. (But also second Pele and Ben Vereen)
Oct 8th, 2010 at 18:51 GMT
ditto on Springsteen, my fave and I didn't get him. AND I thought it was Coleman also! LOL. Good quiz.
Oct 11th, 2010 at 01:47 GMT
Howard Hughes looks like death.
Oct 11th, 2010 at 20:02 GMT
how do you make picture quizzes please help
Oct 25th, 2010 at 20:13 GMT
The Shah looks a lot like present-day Martin Scorsese.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 08:07 GMT
Please tell me I wasn't the only one who tried Sherman Hemsley for Anwar Sadat...
Nov 28th, 2010 at 19:13 GMT
Can't believe I missed The Boss! Love those old Mort Drucker and Jack Davis covers.
Jan 5th, 2011 at 04:03 GMT
Did anyone else think Bruce Springsteen was Topol from "Fiddler on the Roof?" It's mostly the beard at hat I suppose, but I must have tried a half-dozen different spellings to be absolutely certain that it wasn't him.
Jan 14th, 2011 at 02:40 GMT
Would never have recognised James Taylor. He's a bit less hairy nowadays.
Feb 18th, 2011 at 05:58 GMT
Springsteen looks rather militant. I was thinking Castro. I thought it was a gun, but I guess its a guitar :)
Feb 19th, 2011 at 05:10 GMT
Hm, so I guess Muhammad Ali was right when he said he was the most-recognized person in the world.
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 20:34 GMT
I'm embarassed that A.)I thought Cher was Morticia Addams B.) I then misspelled Addams C.) This was the only way I got Ansel Adams.
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 20:36 GMT
I also misspelled Minnelli and missed LeVar Burton while he was on the television next to me. Please help our generation...
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 20:37 GMT
Looking at the results, maybe I shouldn't be so embarrassed about "C"...
Feb 23rd, 2011 at 23:13 GMT
I think Anwar Sadat looks a touch like Walt Disney, but I SWEAR I though that long-haired hippie James Taylor was George Harrison.
Feb 26th, 2011 at 19:40 GMT
With that silly mask on, I'd say Secretariat looks a lot like Seattle Slew or Affirmed.

levar burton!! Reading Rainbow was killer. Also, RIP Farrah Fawcett.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:29 GMT
"John" doesn't count for Elton.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:33 GMT
Well HERE are some faces I never thought I'd see side by side.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:38 GMT
Jimmy Connors...Elvis's long lost brother?
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:49 GMT
All the bright colors, portraits and caricatures...In the 70's the Time staff must picked out covers between acid trips.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:51 GMT
@googlebird: We're all waiting very patiently here... can you please cut to the chase and get to the Covers for the 1840's? You got your Martin Van Buren posing, your Edgar Allan Poe prosing, Karl Marx foreboding, Samuel Morse coding, Charlotte Bronte writing, a Pope Pius sighting... ah! what a decade it was! These games are GREAT FUN, and thanks for continuing to brew them up.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:53 GMT
Elton John, huh? I suppose my guess of Kim Jong-il was a few decades off there. See also: "Hmmm, who's that fourth Beatle?"
Oct 20th, 2011 at 04:58 GMT
I thought Howard Hughes was the Ayatollah Khomeini. Not a good look.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 05:14 GMT
@The Road Guy: I had the same thought & kept trying different spellings of Khomeini. Then again, I also thought James Taylor was either Frank Zappa or Jesus.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 05:33 GMT
Anyone else think Robin Williams looks just like Bill Maher in that picture?
Oct 20th, 2011 at 05:33 GMT
Last names that don't work: John (already noted above) and Bird. Burton? Ach, I tried every young black boxer I knew of--duh. The Boss? No way. Just no way. JT? Lennon failed, as did Harrison--but that one is on me--probably an album cover I have somewhere. Hughes? Cripes--coulda guessed JD Salinger or Pyncheon for all anybody knew what he looked like in later years.... Despite my griping, I loved this quiz.
Oct 20th, 2011 at 05:45 GMT
You are so a crook and that picture prooves it. The best I could do for Ansel Adams was Dr. Seuss. Keep them coming, googlebird.
