50s & 60s questions

I figured this would be the perfect place to ask for this seeing most of us out here are baby boomers. Ken and I are in charge of a picnic for a local car club. I am trying to come up with some trivia questions about popular kids TV shows, commercials, cartoons from the 50 and early 60s.

My eyes have started crossing and am down to 2 brain cells trying to come up with a bunch of questions from our childhood. Anyone out here know some good trivia I could ask that they would remember watching on TV during their childhood/early teens that would be good questions and know the answers.

thanks for any help

Appreciate the suggestions but those are more adult oriented. Guess I should have clarified the theme of the picnic was when we were Little kids---cartoons, commercials, shows kids watched when we were little. appreciate the links you found. Those are more adult themed.

Like what we watched on TV or commercials

What Daniel Boone called his gun? Tick Licker

who was host of Howdy Doody? Buffalo Bob

What product did Bucky Beaver advertise? Ipana toothpaste
