Trivia Corner #9

Two part question:

What is the principal's name in Ferris Bueller's Day Off?

What show did Grace (the secretary from Ferris Bueller's Day Off) appear on from 1986 to 1991?


I'm thinking the Trivia Corner prize is going to be a year's supply of Spam or Spam Lite and Cheese Whiz.

Oh I actually know this!!

Rooney because Jason Schwartzman's (Rushmore fame, etc. son of "Yo Adrian" cousin of Sophia Coppola and Nick Cage) brother Michael (he was in a few films too) was in a band called Rooney!! Jason was in a band called Phantom Planet - I loved 'em!

Now Edie McClurg was on two shows, right? Small Wonder which I blogged about today - she was the mother of the bratty red head and she was also on Hogan's Family aka Valerie which I think must be the show you're referring to.

Yep..I knew these too.

Ed Rooney was the principal.

You asked specifically about 86-91 which was Valerie, as was originally named. It was later changed to The Hogan Family.

:D

Ditto.

I was beaten to the answer on this one so I'll just add that, I like to remember Edie McClurg fondly for her work in Life With Louie.

Darn it! I hate it when I have work to do and then I don't sign on until later in the day to catch up on my blog reading and then people answer the trivia questions that I knew the answers to before I do! lol

I knew Principal Rooney! I remember being so shocked when I heard about the whole sex offender thing.... But that happened a while back....

Edie McCLurg was perfectly cast for the role as the secretary! She was great on The Hogan Family (Yay Jason Bateman!).

By the way, I do not know anybody that did not have a crush on Sloane....

He hit me with this trivia at work I knew Principal Ed Rooney but could not for the life of me remember that the name of the show was Hogan's Family I was even describing the show to him hehe this was a good one. And to Asblackasobama yes everyone had a crush on Sloane. Now to add some trivia to this who is the actress who plays Sloane Peterson, and what was the title of the movie she starred in alongside Tom Cruise, and Tim Curry?

I'm late. I always know Rooney because I love Cameron's prankish phone call to him.

To Nippy: Mia Sara (Lily)...Legend.
