This site is absolutely brilliant. I bow down to the kind of mind it took to think this up.
The first one I tried was Mallory Keaton from Family Ties. After six or seven seemingly general questions, it asked me “Does your father work in public television?” Wow.
Next I tried Rhoda from The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The fourth question was “Does your friend work in a newsroom?” OK, obviously I wasn’t going to stump this thing with such obvious characters.
I thought I had a chance with Mr. Belvedere. I was about twenty questions in and it was still asking me dictator-related questions, like “Have you killed millions of people?” but then out of nowhere came “Are you a butler?” Yes. Then, “Do you like to insult your boss’s blond business partner?” Close, but that was the butler on The Nanny, so No. And it had me.
Next I tried Lional Hutz from The Simpsons. I had to laugh when it asked me if I was the idiot son of another U.S. president. Not sure if someone was referring to W. as a sitcom character (on the least funny sitcom ever?) or as a dictator. Either way, not good.
Dictators are harder, because sadly I know way more about sitcoms than I do about history’s less benevolent leaders. But you should check it out.
