Another week and more puzzles!
What was the legal/given name of comedian Redd Foxx?
What familiar phrase or saying does the image below suggest?
The answers will appear next weekend, but for now: the results of May 23rd's enigmas.
Group 1: The male of both species are both known as TOMS.
Group 2: While both famous comedians in their own right, the answer in this case was the fact that they both share the same first name JERRY.
What famous comedic duo holds the record for most Academy Award winning short subjects?
TOM AND JERRY (Didn't you get the hint from the Common Bonds game?) with 7; starting with The Yankee Doodle Mouse in 1943. The duo followed that in the later years with Mouse Trouble, Quiet Please, The Cat Concerto, The Little Orphan (the first appearance of Nibbles or Tuffy, depending upon which name you like best. The little diaper wearing mouse has been called both), The Two Mouseketeers, and their last (so far) was Johan Mouse in 1952.
The next most successful duo (to date) have been Wallace and Grommit for The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave.
But surprisingly, in regards to the most popular response from fan e-mails: while Tweety himself won for his debut appearance in Tweety Pie, Tweety and Sylvester together only won once, for the classic short Birds Anonymous in 1957.
