About This Quiz

"Quack, Quack, Quack" may not be popular with school principals, but kids love it! In 1992, the Mighty Ducks was America's favorite pee-wee hockey team. They would go on to star in two more movies to complete the popular trilogy. But, for this quiz, we go back to the beginning and focus on the movie to start it all, "The Mighty Ducks." How much do you remember about this childhood '90s classic? That's yet to be seen, and we're willing to bet it's going to get down to the last penalty shot. By the way, do you remember who took the last penalty shot for the Ducks to beat the Hawks?

Every great team starts with their name, but did you know the Mighty Ducks actually began with a different name? What was it? From recruited figure skating siblings and a slap-shot ace without control, the Mighty Ducks know who they are, "Just so you know, we really suck." Do you remember who said that upon first introductions between Gordon and his young team?

Aside from their differences, you know how this team puts their differences aside to win in the end, and regardless how many times you've seen the film, you just can't take your eyes away when it pops up on your TV.
