About This Quiz

One-eyed Willie is the pirate who sparked one of the greatest adventures any kid has ever been on and sparked the fantasies of millions. If you grew up in the '80s, '90s or beyond, you not only know who the Goonies are, but you want to be them. But, how much of a "Goonies" fan are you? It's time for you to prove your worth with this quiz. After all, One-eyed Willie doesn't give his treasure up that easily. 

But, it's not just One-eyed Willie's booby traps that make this adventure for pirate treasure so appealing. The Goonies also have to go up against the gun-wielding Fratelli family, who capture, interrogate and chase the Goonies so they can collect the spoils. But do you know the name of the restaurant that the Fratellis use as a hideout? Or do you remember what Mama Fratelli tells Mouth the only thing they serve at their restaurant is?

Who's Rosalita? What's Chunk's real name, and which side is Sloth supposed to be on, anyway? It's time to pull out your map, line up the markers and have a little faith. This quest isn't going to be easy, but if you know "The Goonies" as well as you think you do, then you might just finish this quiz holding onto the spoils. It's time to show One-eyed Willie that you're not afraid of a little death when his treasure is on the line.
