About This Quiz

Did you watch every episode of Seinfeld, Cheers, Friends, and Roseanne ... twice? If you are of the opinion that the 1990s were the best decade for television sitcoms, then this quiz is for you. Let's get started to find how how many of these 35 sitcom characters you can match to their shows.

Seinfeld, starring comedian Jerry Seinfeld as himself, was sort of the original Friends. The show followed the lives and adventures of a group of friends in New York City. But, even as the actual show Friends became popular, Seinfeld continued to stay popular with viewers. The fact is that the laughs were good in the 1990s. Now, we're not putting down TV sitcoms from any other decade, but c'mon, who didn't love Full House, and Home Improvement, and Frasier? It is notable, however, that as the '90s progressed, the themes of many of the most popular sitcoms changed from the innocence that was prevalent in earlier decades (think Andy Griffith and Happy Days) and became more cynical and raw as the century wound to a close (think Roseanne and Everybody Loves Raymond). The sitcoms of the '90s paved the way for the more "real" themes of the new millennium.

Let's find out how many of these characters you remember.
