4/5. I missed the question about Oscar the Grouch. I think I answered the last question correctly only because Follow That Bird was one of my favorites as a kid. It came out in 1985 and I remember seeing snufalufagus in it.

5/5...pretty much because as a kid, I loved Sesame Street. I used to wake up before my parents at 1 year old, and they taught me how to turn on the TV (which was already on the right channel) so I could watch Sesame Street in the morning. I realized later that the pics somewhat correspond to the question...I could have made it easier on myself. I wracked my brain trying to prove something to myself, haha.

I got the last one wrong (as if it had to do with children of abuse?!), and the Grover one because I didn't think the picture related to the question! I could have guessed it!
