2. 1) ID X.
X is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera, originally airing in primetime from 1962–1963
and again from 1985–1987 as part of the weekday/weekend morning programming block called The Funtastic
World of Hanna-Barbera.
The main characters are :
George X: age 40, is the main character and protagonist of the series. He is a loving family man who always
seems to make the wrong decisions. He works at Spacely's Sprockets turning the Referential Universal Digital
Indexer (R.U.D.I.) on and off. He is married to Jane and together they have two kids, Judy and Elroy.
Jane X: age 33, is George's wife, mother of their two children, and a homemaker (although it is Rosie who does
most of the work). Jane is obsessed with fashion and new gadgetry. Her favorite store is Mooning Dales. She is
a dutiful wife who always tries to make life as pleasant as possible for her family. Outside of the home, she is a
member of the Galaxy Women Historical Society and is a fan of Leonardo de Venus and Picasso Pia.
Judy X: age 15, is the elder child in the family. A student at Orbit High School, she is a stereotypical teenage girl
whose prime interests include: clothes, hanging out with friends, and revealing secrets to her digital diary.
Elroy X: age 6½, is the younger of the two children in the family. He is highly intelligent and an expert in all
space sciences. A mild-mannered and good child, Elroy attends Little Dipper School, where he studies space
history, astrophysics, star geometry and math.
Rosie: is the household robot. She's an outdated model but they love her and would never trade her for a
newer model. Rosie does all the housework and some of the parenting. She is a strong authoritarian and
occasionally dispenses pills to the family.
Astro: Astro is the family dog. Prior to being a X his name was Tralfaz and he belonged to the fabulously rich
Mr. Gottrockets. Astro is one of George's best friends (next to his work computer, R.U.D.I.) as well as Elroy's
best buddy. He is able to speak in a rough sounding English resembling dog barks and growls, a manner of
speaking which voice actor Don Messick would later reuse for the role of Scooby-Doo.
3. 2) A-F (0.5 points for each alphabet).
A (known as B in Europe, Latin America and Australia) is an American animated
television series created by Warner Bros. Animation in collaboration with C as a
continuation of the D legacy. Depicting teenager Terry McGinnis as a new D in a
futuristic E under the tutelage of an elderly F, the series began airing on January 10,
1999, and ended its run on December 18, 2001. After 52 episodes spanning three
seasons and one direct-to-video film, the series was put on hold for the Justice League
animated series, despite the network having announced plans for a fourth season.
A is said to explore the darker side of many D projects, playing on key elements such
as emotions, personal relations, fear of the unknown, technological malfunctions, and
the disturbing psychological elements of the character of F. As such, it was
considerably darker than most other children's programs at the time, although
producer Bruce Timm recalls it was conceived as a kid-friendly D cartoon. It is also the
first D series to portray the hero as a teenager. IGN named the show 40th on their list
of "Top 100 Animated TV Series."
4. 3) List It.
The names of characters voiced by Mel Blanc for Warner Bros. and
Hanna Barbera. There are 24. 0.5 points for each.
5. 4) Put funda. Also give me X and Y. ( 1+1 points)
Over the past few days on Facebook, there has been a particular pic which has been
shared by tons of fan pages. This pic has apparently shed some light into a kind of uncanny
connection between two separate comics/cartoons X and Y. These 2 cartoons have often
been portrayed as competing with each other over who the better superhero is, thus
resulting in many comic photos. The pic states that the building in which one of the
superhero works in, is owned by the other superhero. This was not known by most people
and Wikipedia confirms that this piece of news is actually true ( I just checked it).
6. 5) List of what ( there are more, I’ve chosen only these few )? ( Lame ) I don’t
need X and Y. Just gimme the list.
X : X vs Aliens
X : Journey To Petra
X : Master of Shaolin
X And The Curse Of Damyaan
X : The Rise Of Kirmada
X And Y : In The Amazing Odessey
X And The Broken Amulet
7. 6) What is X?
X is a combination of a dinosaur and a kangaroo. It is a creature which has it’s own
cartoon and also appears in The Flintstones as Hoppy, a pet of the Rubbles. Not much is
known about this creature except for the fact that it looks like a dinosaur, jumps and has a
pouch like a kangaroo. Its called “Hoppy the X” in The Flintstones and the other is called
Tickety Toc, a cartoon that airs on Nick Jr and obviously doesn’t look this this (below)
Hoppy the X in The Flintstones.
8. 7) Sequence of each episode of which cartoon and give me X ( 1+1 ).
The series opens with the theme song (over clips from various episodes) and the title card
before it dissolves into the school. The children are seen doing an activity, occasionally
relating to the episode's topic. The children imagine something and X comes to life from a
plush doll, transforming into the "real" X, how he appears to the children while they're
Here, the main plot of the episode takes place. X and the children learn about the main
topic of the episode, with Baby Bop, B.J., or Riff appearing during the episode and numerous
songs themed relating to the subject featured in the series. The roles of Baby Bop, B.J., and
Riff have grown larger in later seasons and later episodes venture outside of the school to
other places within the neighbourhood and to other countries around the world in Season
X concludes with "I Love You" before he dissolves back into his original stuffed form and
winks to the audience. After the children discuss a bit about what they had learned, the
sequence cuts to X Says where X, who is off-screen, narrates what he and his friends had
done that day, along with still snapshots from the episode. Then X, himself, signs off before
the credits roll. In Seasons 3-8, and 12, he later appeared on-screen by saying, "And
remember, I love you," and waves goodbye.
9. 8) ID X, Y, Z and show. ( 0.5 points for each, sorry for such a big passage )
The episode The Birth of Evil reveals X's origins. Long ago in the vastness of space, a great, formless
evil arose. Before it could do harm to the universe, it was set upon by three god-like figures known
only as "The Deities". They are Odin, Ra, and Vishnu. During the battle, the deities' attack was fierce
and the evil was all but destroyed save for a small fragment that was flung aside and it drifted for an
unknown period of time before falling to Earth during the era of the dinosaurs (causing their
extinction). It slowly grew and spread like poison over the course of the centuries, creating an ever-
spreading forest of black spikes that devoured any who entered. Eventually the forest grew so large
that the Y Lord of the Land (Z's father) decided to kill the evil at its source. Armed with a magic oil
given to him by Buddhist monks, the Lord and his cavalry rode into the heart of the forest, the Lord
himself the only one to survive. Once at the black lake in the forest's centre, the Y Lord doused an
arrow into the oil he was given, shot it into the air, and into the black lake. Instead of destroying the
evil, however; the magic arrow gave it humanoid form, sentience, and the ability to shape shift. Thus,
the demon wizard X was born.
X easily defeated the Lord, trapped him on a giant, dead tree, and went on a rampage. The Deities,
sensing the good in the Y Lord, summoned him to a secret place. Taking the good inside him, they
forged an enchanted sword that is capable of harming X. Armed with the sword and a magical suit of
armor, he plunged into battle against X. In the end, the Lord was victorious, but he was unable to
destroy him, so he had to settle with trapping him inside the earth in the form of a tree. As he was
sealed away, X vowed he would one day return. Shortly after, Z's mother gave birth to him.
Determined to learn from this and be prepared in the event X's vow came to pass, The Lord and his
family decided that they needed a plan. Thus YZ was created.
10. 9) ID the cartoon compared to The Big Bang Theory (kind of easy if you know
where to look)
11. 10) IMDb’s description of who (X) ? Bonus points for giving me other alphabets (0.5 each)
Date of Birth
17 January 1970, Moscow, Russian SFSR, USSR [now Russia]
X was born and raised in Moscow, USSR. He and his family moved to Chicago, IL when he was 7
years old, after his father defected to the US. His interest in comic books and animation led him
to study animation at Cal Arts in Los Angeles. While he was there he produced two student
films, one of which was the basis of his series “AB" The character of Z was inspired by his older
brother Alex, who would often spoil younger brother X's plans (as Z does to A).
Dawn David (21 October 2000 - present)
Many episodes of cartoon shows he directs have extended periods of either silence or no
Frequently uses pop culture references in his cartoons
Characters that are very round or rectangular with thick black outlines
Frequently works with Craig McCracken and Paul Rudish.
Worked briefly at Jon McClenahan's Startoons studio in Chicago early in his career.
12. 11) ID XY (forms one phrase together) and Z ( 0.5 points for each )
The XY are male counterparts of the Powerpuff Girls, created by Z. They were made by flushing armpit hair,
snails from the cafeteria, and the tail of the talking dog down the jail cell toilet. They are 5-year-old bullies
with powers stronger and better than the girls', but they all possess very easily targeted weaknesses. They
have similar names as the girls. Instead of Blossom, the leader’s name is Brick. Instead of Bubbles, Boomer
and instead of Buttercup, Butch.
Growing: Whenever they get kissed by the girls, they grow bigger, stronger, and tougher. This was
only used once and it will most likely never be used again because all the Powerpuff Girls need to do
is not kiss them again, although according to "The City of Clipsville," they will kiss them again because
they will soon fall in love with them there at that time.
Afterburner: They can emit toxic gas through their farts that can temporarily blind and suffocate the
girls, as seen in their self-titled debut episode.
Pulse wave: As seen in The Y Are Back In Town, they can produce a sonic wave that can knock the girls
X Megablast: As seen in their return episode, they can produce an energy blast by creating a
whirlpool of energy. the girls can do this too but while their energy is green, the girls energy is blue
Gross things: In the episode "The Y are back in town" The XY did gross things to the girls such as
throwing scabs and spitting mucus at them. Butch was seen shoving a slug down the back of Bubbles'
shirt and Brick salivated all over Blossom's face. In "Bubble Y," Brick and Butch were seen attempting
to spit a plane out of flight with mucus and they broke a glass satellite part and a spare satellite part

Chance Furlong and Jake Clawson were members of X City's paramilitary law enforcement
agency, known as the Enforcers. Unfortunately, the Enforcers were commanded by Feral, an
incompetent, overbearing and inflexible Enforcer who was believed to have owed his
position entirely to political machinations. While in pursuit of Y, one of the main arch-
villains of the series, the two rebelled against Enforcer Commander Feral's orders to fall back
and leave Y to him. When they objected, citing their already-acquired target lock,
Commander Feral used his jet to slap their wing, sending Chance and Jake's jet crashing into
Enforcer headquarters and allowing Y to get away. In his anger, Feral discharged Chance and
Jake from the Enforcers and reassigned them to work at the city's military salvage yard to
pay for the damage to the Enforcer Headquarters.
This led to the two of them taking the law into their own hand by working on scrap found in
the salvage yard. They called themselves A and B and their team as Z.
Z isn't same as the show. It is part of the name of the show. I want the full name of the
show (for points).
14. 13) ID X ( show ). A personal favourite of mine when I was 7-8 years old ( I guess ).
X is a syndicated 30 minute American science fiction animated television series produced by Ruby-
Spears and animated in Japan by Sunrise. Comic book legends Jack Kirby and Gil Kane contributed to the
design and concepts of the show.
The series began in 1986 as a five-part miniseries and was followed with a 60 episode series. The series was
story edited by Ted Pedersen and written by several authors, including prolific science fiction writers Michael
Reaves, Marc Scott Zicree, Larry DiTillio and Gerry Conway. The series theme and soundtrack were
composed by Udi Harpaz. There was also a line of tie-in toys by Kenner, and a comic book series by DC
The X are a team of men dressed in specially created exo-frames that allow them (upon shouting "Power
Extreme") to fuse with 'incredible' assault weapon systems, becoming what the show calls man and
machine, Power Xtreme! The end result is a weapons platform somewhere between a hard-suit and
Max Ray - 'Brilliant' Sea Operations Commander: The calm and collected de facto leader of the team,
donning a green power suit. His weapon systems are best suited for underwater missions.
Jake Rockwell - 'Rugged' Land Operations Specialist: Donning a yellow power suit, he has a short fuse. His
weapon systems have the most firepower and are best suited for land missions, except for a helicopter-
themed system he uses in air combat, usually assisted by Ace.
Ace McCloud - 'Daring' Air Operations Expert: Donning a blue power suit, he is a brave but cocky womanizer
who is sometimes at odds with Jake. His weapon systems are best suited for aerial missions, including one
specially designed for battles in space.
Extended Team (later additions):
Rex Charger - ‘Expert’ Energy Programmer
John Thunder – ‘Specialist’ Infiltration Commander
15. Tinky Winky is the first X. He is the largest and oldest of the X, is covered in purple terrycloth, and
has a triangular antenna on his head. He is notable for the red luggage he always carries. His
character has caused controversy following allegations that his character's behaviour, bag and body
colour have stereotypical homosexual qualities.
Dipsy is the second. He is green and is named "Dipsy" because his antenna resembles a dipstick.
Dipsy is the most stubborn of the X, and will sometimes refuse to go along with the other X’s group
opinion. His face is also notably darker than the rest of the X, and the creators have stated that he
Laa-Laa is the third. She is yellow, and has a curly antenna. She likes to sing and dance, and is often
seen to look out for the other X.
Po is the fourth and last. She is the smallest and youngest of the X, is red, and has an antenna
shaped like a stick used for blowing soap bubbles. She has been stated by the show's creators to
be Cantonese and as such, she is bilingual, speaking both English and Cantonese.
Noo-noo seems to be both the X’s guardian and housekeeper, due to its resemblance to a vacuum
cleaner, which is its principal purpose in the house. Noo-noo hardly ever ventures outside, instead
remaining indoors and constantly cleaning with its sucker-like nose. It does not speak like the other
characters, instead communicating through a series of slurping and sucking noises. At times, Noo-
noo gets annoyed with the X’s antics and can vacuum their food or toys. This usually prompts the X
to scold Noo-noo through a cry of "Naughty Noo-noo!
The programme was also at the centre of a controversy when
American televangelist and conservative pundit Jerry Falwell claimed in 1999 that Tinky Winky, one
of the X, was a homosexual role model for children. Falwell based this conclusion on the character's
purple colour and triangular antenna; both the colour purple and the triangle are sometimes used
as symbols of the Gay Pride movement. Which show (X) ?

Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, is awakened from a long sleep by Hoggish Greedly, who happens to be
drilling above her resting chamber. Realizing that the damage is extensive, Gaia sends five magic rings,
four with the power to control an element of nature and one controlling the element of Heart, to five
chosen youths across the globe: Kwame from Africa, Wheeler from North America, Linka from
the Soviet Union (changed to Eastern Europe after the Soviet Union's collapse), Gi from Asia, and Ma-
Ti from South America.
These five are dubbed the X and are tasked with defending the Earth from the greatest of disasters
and making efforts to educate mankind to keep others from happening. Gaia uses her "Planet Vision"
to discover where the most devastating destruction is occurring (in most episodes one or more of the
Eco-Villains is behind it) and sends the X to help solve the problem. The X use transportation (usually
a flying machine called a Geo-Cruiser) based on solar power to avoid causing pollution themselves.
In situations that the X cannot resolve alone, they can combine their powers to summon Y, a super
hero, who possesses all of their powers magnified, symbolizing the premise that the combined efforts
of a team are stronger than its individual parts. He is able to rearrange his molecular structure to
transform himself into the various powers and elements of nature. Y’s outfit does not represent a
specific culture. He has a grass-green proto-mullet, crystal blue skin, earthy brown eyes, a fire-red
chest, gloves, trunks, and boots, and a sun-yellow globe insignia.
The X cannot use their rings while Y has been summoned.Despite his vulnerability to pollution, Y is a
formidable and valiant hero. Once his work is done, he returns to the Earth, restoring the X’s powers.
When he does this, he reminds viewers of the message of the series with his catchphrase, "The Power
Is Yours!" Which means that we all have the power to end the destruction of the earth if we work
together as one world rather than fighting each other as separate nations.

X is a family cartoon character, created by Hanna-Barbera Productions, who has appeared in
numerous comic books, animated television shows and films. He made his debut in 1958 as a
supporting character in The Huckleberry Hound Show. X was the first breakout
character created by Hanna-Barbera, and was eventually more popular than Huckleberry
Hound. In January 1961, he was given his own show, The X Show, sponsored by Kellogg's,
which included the segments Snagglepuss and Yakky Doodle. Hokey Wolf replaced his segment
on The Huckleberry Hound Show. A musical animated feature film, Hey There, It's X!, was
produced in 1964. X was one of several Hanna-Barbera characters to have a collar. This
allowed animators to keep his body static, redrawing only his head in each frame when he

This show is basically like a dinner theatre club where someone hosts a show and there are artists
performing on stage. The pub is called X, also the name of the show, and is present in downtown Toontown.
Located at a corner of an intersection on Toontown's Main Street, the club is considered a very popular
destination by the local populace. Some episodes have specific themes, with cartoons to fit that episode's
theme. The theme is usually not beneficial to at least one character, usually Donald.
The characters that appear on this show are : Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto, Horace
Horsecollar, Max Goof, Clarabelle Cow, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Gus Goose, Magic Mirror, Mike, Penguin
waiters, Animated brooms, Pete.
Many other characters from Disney animated films (such as Aladdin, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Little
Mermaid, Hercules, and many more) have appeared on the show, mostly as patrons and guest star
performers. The show is notable for including many relatively obscure and otherwise rarely-used Disney
characters, often with speaking parts. Notably, Li'l Bad Wolf and April, May and June Duck, who had
appeared very often in Disney comic books but never before in an animated cartoon, finally made their
animated debuts on the show. The show also featured some cameos by characters created for other
television cartoons and theme park attractions, but these appearances were few and far between.
22. XY is a cartoon fictional character created by Elzie Crisler Segar, who has appeared in comic
strips and theatrical and television animated cartoons. He first appeared in the daily King
Features comic strip Thimble Theatre on January 17, 1929; X became the strip's title in later
Although Segar's Thimble Theatre strip was in its tenth year when X made his debut, he
quickly became the main focus of the strip and Thimble Theatre became one of King Features'
most popular properties during the 1930s. Thimble Theatre was continued after Segar's death
in 1938 by several writers and artists, most notably Segar's assistant Bud Sagendorf. The strip
continues to appear in first-run installments in its Sunday edition, written and drawn by Hy
Eisman. The daily strips are reprints of old Sagendorf stories.
In 1933, Max and Dave Fleischer's Fleischer Studios adapted the Thimble Theatre characters
into a series of XY theatrical cartoon shorts for Paramount Pictures. These cartoons proved to
be among the most popular of the 1930s, and the Fleischers—and later Paramount's
own Famous Studios—continued production through 1957. The shorts are now owned
by Turner Entertainment, a subsidiary of Time Warner, and distributed by sister
company Warner Bros. Entertainment.

X, (born on December 28, 1922) is an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, media
producer, television host, actor, voice actor and former president and chairman of Marvel
Comics. In collaboration with several artists, most notably Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he co-
created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and many
other fictional characters, introducing complex, naturalistic characters and a thoroughly shared
universe into superhero comic books. In addition, he headed the first major successful challenge
to the industry's censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, and forced it to reform its
policies. X subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a
publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.
He was inducted into the comic book industry's The Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and
the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995. X is also a regular at Comic Con and has appeared on The
Big Bang Theory as himself, where the group meets him at Stuart’s comic book store with the

X Cornelius Z is a fictional Great Dane created by Hanna-Barbera Productions in 1979, with
the famous catchphrase, "Let me at 'em!" and is the nephew of Hanna-Barbera cartoon
star YZ. X has appeared in a number of the various incarnations of the YZ cartoon series.
Lennie Weinrib provided his voice for one season in 1979 and from 1980 on, it was
performed by Don Messick (who voiced Y). In the first live action theatrical movie, video
games, and commercials, he was voiced by Scott Innes. X initially became a breakout
character for the series, but later was credited for the show's decline. According to the
creators, X was born to Ruby Z, the sister of Y at St. Bernard's Hospital on December 20,

X in Y is an American animated television series which ran on Cartoon Network for two
seasons, from November 17, 2000, to April 7, 2002. The series' pilot first premiered as part of
Cartoon Network's "Cartoon Cartoon Summer" on August 18, 2000.
Created by Mo Willems, the bulk of the show follows a runaway X, in its new life in “Y". It
also features several unrelated sketches and shorts, similar to The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.
With an emphasis on more "sophisticated" (in particular, literal) humour, using multiple forms
of rhetoric from the characters to the plots, it was more popular with older audiences.
X lives happily on with his friends. Unfortunately, a Secret Military Organization, led by General
Specific, needs him for its X-Powered Ray Gun (with a X-shaped hole in it).
General Specific will get him at any cost, and, knowing that the farm is at stake, X is forced to
leave for Y. Now X is on the run from General Specific, who is assisted by his henchmen, Private
Public, the Angry Scientist (who in the show is often wrongly referred to as "Mad Scientist"), a
bunch of other military types, and the Plot Device.
In addition, X has to come to grips with Y and trying to romance his love, Swanky the Poodle.
All the while, he has to avoid the attentions of a host of unwelcome characters — Farmer John,
Lisa Rentel, and Swanky's owner, the X-hating Lady Richington, wielding a stainless-steel wig.

took me in after seeing me abandoned in a dump, which is ironic. The show in which I star has

This show is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny
Antonucci and produced by Canada-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon
Network on January 4, 1999. The series was designed to resemble classic cartoons from
the 1940s to the 1970s and revolves around three adolescents. The purpose of these
adolescents was to come up with creative ideas to make money from their peers and
acquire their favourite confectionary called X.
Adult cartoonist Antonucci was dared to create a children's cartoon; while designing a
commercial, he conceived the show, and approached Cartoon Network
and Nickelodeon with the series, but both channels demanded creative control, which
Antonucci did not agree to. A deal was ultimately made for Cartoon Network to
commission the show, after they agreed to let Antonucci have control of the show. During
the show's run, several specials and shorts were produced in addition to the regular
television series. Two books, as well as several comic books and video games, either based
on the series or featuring the series' characters have also been produced. The series' TV
movie finale aired on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.

The show's creative team went on to create many successful television series throughout the
1990s and 2000s, including writer Seth MacFarlane, creator of the popular animated
series Family Guy.
“When X first came out, I don't think a lot of people didn't have high hopes for it, and I think
it was really cool that prove exactly what kind of character he was. No one really thought it
was going to go anywhere. Not only has it gone somewhere, it's actually still around, it's very
iconic now, 15, 16 years later.”
On the long lasting impact of the show, writer/director Butch Hartman states:
A popular 90s cartoon, this show premiered on Cartoon Network on July 14, 1997. The
series stars a young man named X who dons a pompadour hairstyle and an Elvis Presley-
like voice and has a forward, woman-chasing personality. Plots typically revolve around
him trying to get a woman that he has targeted throughout the episode to fall in love with
Other, more famous Hanna-Barbera characters have appeared in X episodes, including the
cast of Scooby-Doo, Speed Buggy, Jabberjaw, Fred Flintstone, Yogi Bear, The Blue Falcon, Black
Widow, and Huckleberry Hound.
