Title: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on July 04, 2007, 02:07:53 PM
I thought if it might be fun if we had a game to play on this site.

The Hardy Boys Trivia Game! ;D

Here are the rules:

1  Ask 1 (ONE) question.  
2  Make sure that the question is from the Hardy Boys canon not fan-fiction, or another series like Nancy Drew.
3  When someone answers the question correctly tell them.
4  The person that answers the question correctly first is the one who asks the next question.
5  If no one answers your question in about two days, give a hint. 

Here's an example:

Which book does Vanessa Bender first appear in?

The correct answer is Casefiles #69 Mayhem in Motion.

Here's my real question:

In the Casefiles what is the name of Fenton Hardy's former partner on the NYPD?

In an early book in the series, the Hardy Boys meet Chris Hardy who claims to be their long-lost brother.  What is Chris' real last name and when did he stay with Laura and Fenton Hardy and why?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on July 04, 2007, 11:11:21 PM
1  Ask 1 (ONE) question.

 So after this just ask 1 question.  Thanks. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on July 05, 2007, 05:31:44 PM
Sorry about that.  Forget that question.

Here is a new question:

What X-Men makes a crossover in Double Exposure?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on July 06, 2007, 09:51:11 PM
Wild guess: Wolverine? 
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on July 07, 2007, 07:38:08 AM
Not Wolverine.

Here's another clue.  The character (who in Double Exposure is used only as a code name) only appeared in the last movie.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SkyWarp on July 07, 2007, 08:56:24 AM
The Beast?  Wasn't that character in another HB Casefile as well? 
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on July 09, 2007, 05:55:43 PM
The Beast is correct.  As far as I can recall, The Beast only appeared in Double Exposure, or course, he may have been mentioned as someone the Hardy's knew and thought could help in a later volume.

Since this a Casfiles and Undercover Brothers site, make sure that the question is from the Casfiles, Supermysteries, Undercover Brothers or the new Super Mysteries.

Some people were asking Blue Spine questions any way, I didn?t think it was that big of a deal so I just changed it to:

Make sure that the question is from the Hardy Boys not another series like Nancy Drew.

So very, very close, but not quite.

Here are the clues so far:
It is something that causes things to shake.
It is something that is in people's homes and they would buy new.
In Highway Robbery, Tony Prito wanted one of these at a cheap price.

New clue:

It contains a radio and Joe couldn't hear Frank in The Genius Thieves because some guys were playing theirs so loud that it was shaking the sidewalk.

You were so close with CD player, but its not what I'm looking for.

In 'The Alien Factor', how does Harlan Ames tip off the Hardy's and Tom Swift about the government agents at Swift Enterprises?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: NZone on June 23, 2008, 08:45:14 AM
he makes a comment about the "blasted bugs" around, which tips off tom since Swift Enterprises is surrounded by vibratory screens keeping it bug-free
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Three is correct! ''The Sinister Sign Post'' was changed ''The Sinister Signpost''. ''The Mystery of the Flying Express'' was changed to ''Mystery of the Flying Express'' and ''The Mystery at Devil's Paw'' was changed to ''Mystery at Devil's Paw''.

Also when the Handbook has revised it's title was changed from ''The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook'' to ''The Hardy Boys Detective Handbook''.

Casefiles #64 ''Endangered Species'' and #65 ''No Mercy'', both have a preview of A Hardy Boys and Tom Swift Ultra Thriller ''Time Bomb'', and Casefiles #76 ''Tagged for Terror'' has a preview of ''The Alien Factor'', so I'm guessing #77 ''Survival Run'' does as well.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on August 19, 2008, 07:51:02 AM
You got one of the books that had a teaser.  Tagged For Terror and Survival Run only have a 1-page write-up on The Alien Factor

No, there are still three more books with a multi-page teaser.

And if you notice, I said out of the first 66 books in the Casefiles.  #76 and 77 are outside that hint.

Post by: SDLagent on September 24, 2008, 11:50:10 PM
Eight is correct. There are two non-ATAC cases in Graphic Novel #1, and in fact ATAC isn't even mentioned; two in Graphic Novel #7, although the main case is ATAC related; one in Graphic Novel #10, again ATAC-related but not assigned to them by ATAC; in Undercover Brothers #5, the cases are fake ATAC, so there's another one; at the beginning of UB #13, the boys wrap-up a case they stumbled on (the only one of the UB!); and then in ''Wanted'' Frank and Joe are framed, rather then working on an ATAC mission. So there you have it, eight non-ATAC cases, mind you a lot of them are as a result of ATAC (GN #7, UB #5), and those that aren't we just get the tail end of (GN #7, UB #13).

Your turn Tom.

You see it the first 32 books and there revisions Frang always asked for a "pop." Mean while in books 122-138 Frank said lemon lime soda. However in the Casefiles it is root beer. In most of the UBs Frank likes Diet/Cafeen Free soda. Yet in the Clues Brothers Frank is addicted to Monster.

There never is a computer chess tournament in Chicago that Joe attends.

Here's a hint: This city shares its nickname with this famous fictional adventurer who was an inspiration for the Hardy Boys in the Hardy Boys Casefiles.

Post by: tomswift2002 on July 17, 2009, 05:05:45 PM
Day of the Dinosaur was set at the Bayport Museum. 

I'm thinking it's either The Mummy Case from the Originals, or Sheer Terror from the Casefiles.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Never read Day of the Dinosaur. Just knew it was set at a museum...and he has Dinosaur in his name.

Post by: Bigfootman on July 26, 2009, 10:08:23 AM
I'm not surprized you guys have not figured this one out, as it's a trick. From what I know there was no book with that plot in the Hardy boys series. The closest book to this plot was in Day Of The Dinosaur, but the musem is not in Montana. The musem in the mummy case was in New York, I have not read Sheer Terror, but it seems that it takes place in Arizona. I am not sure if Frank and Joe even went to Montana, Nancy Drew has, but I'm not sure if the Hardy Boys have.

As Day Of The Dinosaur is what I based the fake plot off of,  SDLagent gets to make a question.

Ps: I am a little surprized that tomswift2002 did not get this one as he made this very simular question:
"In which Hardy Boys series did Joe attend a computer chess tournament in Chicago?" which was also a trick.

Okay, then I'm probably thinking of the ending line in the book- I seem to recall Joe trading remarks with Phil's cousin about possible game titles and him suggesting something with a gorilla and her telling him she thinks that's been done to death. (Or something along those lines. Maybe it wasn't a gorilla...like I said, it's been a while since I read the book. I'll have to pull it out later to look this one up.) :)

Aviators is very close...keep thinking along those lines...what do planes do?? They....???? ONE more day and then I am telling you answer. :)

It's towards the middle I believe and only mentioned briefly because they are undercover-ish.

YES THANK GOODNESS!! :) I didn't want two questions in a row to go unanswered.

What's funny about that is, in the Undercover Brothers book, Feeding Frenzy, Joe jokingly refers to Frank and himself as the "Flying Hardys".

There's a little Hardy Boys trivia for you to keep you going while I come-up with a question.

Wrong and wrong.

Keep in mind, Frank is 16 in this book, and Joe is 15.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on February 26, 2010, 09:21:50 AM
I guess it's practical enough- I'm pretty sure Frank mentions this in the course of his thoughts about Callie after witnessing her apparent death in "Dead of Night".

Now I get to ask one...hm...this will probably be too easy but oh well...Here ya go!

Why does Frank go to the hospital in Danger on the Diamond?

(Danger on the Diamond is digest # 90)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on March 04, 2010, 06:10:03 PM

But I'll guess...He gets hit by baseball?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 04, 2010, 10:22:32 PM
Good job, Hardygirl847. Oscar Smuff is a classic Hardy Boys character! ;D I always found his interactions with the Hardys pretty amusing.
I don't remember this particular part of the book right offhand, (though "Danger on the Diamond" is one of my favorites- I think I've probably read this one more than once) so I'll probably have to look it up.
But I'll take a guess anyway- was he caught in the collapse of the bleachers? I do recall that happening in the first chapter, but I can't remember if anyone was seriously hurt in it.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on March 05, 2010, 02:29:43 AM
Thanks MacGyver! :) I am just starting to read some of the Originals (gasp, I know!) so I haven't seen too much of Oscar yet. :) The Tower Treasure is our book club/discussion book so I have at least been exposed to the beginning of Mr. Smuff.

I really enjoyed Danger in the Diamond too!!

The bleachers do collapse but that is not why he goes to the hospital. Good memory though! I'm sure you will get it in no time. :)

Spencer, I missed your post somehow!! You were right actually. Sorry I didn't see it earlier. :( Frank gets hit in the head by a baseball and ends up staying overnight with a mild concussion. A sabotaged pitching machine was the culprit.

tomswift, he and Joe both get cut from the glass on the fence but they do not go to the hospital for it. Good memory though!! :)

OK Spencer...you're up to bat! (bad pun, I know).
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on March 06, 2010, 02:36:17 AM
That's pretty funny, actually. I, the one who hasn't read it, got the right answer and then you don't even see it.

As time has gone on, many of the Hardys' chums have disappeared, to the point where Frank and Joe don't seem to have any friends. Who was the first chum to disappear? And, no, it's not Jerry Gilroy.

Perry Robinson????

Perry Robinson appeared in 4 of the first 10 books (from 1927-1931)  and then made a reappearance in the 1959 revision of The Tower Treasure, and the character appeared in an altered form in the 1956 Disney serial (that is in the Walt Disney Treasures line).  Jerry Gilroy lasted til about 1932/1933.

Well, since we're talking about The Hardy Boys' chums, how about this one:
After years (like, decades) of absence, in what book did Jerry Gilroy make a possible, albeit unnamed, cameo appearance?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 08, 2010, 06:03:47 PM

Yeah, but after 1932 he essentially got dropped from frequent appearances.

No one knows? Perhaps it was a subtle tribute to The Hardy Boys' 75th. anniversary. Perhaps that will serve as a clue? ;)

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 11, 2010, 04:35:06 PM
That one is very close numerically- but not quite the one I was thinking of. The book I'm thinking of really took The Hardy Boys to new heights. ;)
(Though now that you mention this, you must tell me the specifics of this mention. :D)

Post by: MacGyver on March 12, 2010, 05:05:10 PM
If it helps, you are really close. And now that I had a chance to look back through the book I'm talking about, I realize that this character actually is named- but by first name only. However, there's an additional clue in the passage that makes it pretty clear that it most likely is a Jerry Gilroy cameo. :D 8)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 13, 2010, 05:33:58 PM
#172 Trouble In Warp Space?

As for #174 Hide-And-Sneak http://hardyboys.wikia.com/wiki/Hide-and-Sneak

I don't remember that much from the book since I last read it when it came out in August 2002 and I haven't had a chance to re-read it.  But I do remember that it was one of the few post-Stratemeyer titles that actually had the Sleuth make an appearance.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 13, 2010, 08:45:04 PM
Yeah, Hide-and-Sneak actually talks about The Hardy Boys dragging the Sleuth out of mothballs, so they obviously haven't used it in a while.
And as to the trivia question, you are incredibly close, but #172 is still not the book I'm looking for.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on March 14, 2010, 02:16:42 AM
Yeah, I thought it was cool how they actually acknowledged that the Sleuth hadn't been used in awhile.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 14, 2010, 09:56:04 PM
It's not "Hidden Mountain" (but that was an awesome book, by the way) and it is in the 170s range.

Maybe you should just ask another question, MacGyver.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 15, 2010, 11:01:43 PM
Hmm- okay. I thought someone might have known this.
Well, if not- I'll go ahead and reveal it then.
If you look in Chapter 4 "Questions Without Answers" of #171 "The Test Case"- on page 41, you will see that Frank talks briefly with a student named Jerry! And it specifically identifies this Jerry as an outfielder! Jerry also implies that he knows Frank and Joe personally within their conversation. And Frank says at the end of their coversation that he'll "tell Joe 'hi' for you."
I feel pretty confident this was meant to be a little tribute and cameo appearance for Jerry Gilroy! At long last! :D 8)

All right- let's try this one on for size now.
What character who originated in the Casefiles later crossed over to appear somewhat frequently in the Digests?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on March 16, 2010, 12:05:11 AM
Liz Webling?

BTW, even if it isn't meant to be, that is a pretty cool tribute to Jerry Gilroy.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 16, 2010, 01:50:27 PM
Yes, Liz Webling is it. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

For some reason I think there might've been an Irish cop along the lines of O'Malley.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on March 19, 2010, 01:12:27 AM
Yeah, he's a pretty unknown character, probably because he only appeared in two stories (I think). I've only read one of his appearances, his debut, The Flickering Torch Mystery
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 19, 2010, 05:27:55 PM
I've never read the 1943 edition of The Flickering Torch Mystery

Next question.

When The Hardy Boys and Biff Hooper are in New York City what "phony" item does Biff acquire? 

(I'm not going to give you the book's title, since that will give it away.  All that I will say is that its from the late part of the Original continuity.)

Post by: SDLagent on March 19, 2010, 07:08:52 PM
A video game?

I've never read the 1943 edition of The Flickering Torch Mystery

It's pretty good. Also, not only is it the first appearance of Tom Casey, but also Dick Ames, another little-known recurring character from the 40s. Unlike Tom, he survived the revision process and showed-up in the revised text of The Secret of Skull Mountain.

I can't think of a way in which to even give a hint for this one, so I'll just tell you the answer.  Nancy told Joe that she fed her baguette to the birds.  (The episode is on Disc 2 of the Kaboom! Entertainment DVD set.)

In Terminal Shock what is the password for the Hardy's friend's computer?

Okay, that was really throwing me off because I really couldn't recall a character named Nancy in The Hardy Boys Casefiles #42 "The Last Laugh"- because that's what I immediately thought of. ;)
I did not realize that this Hardy Boys trivia game was open to things other than the books- if the TV shows and video games and comics are included, that's good to know. Might make use of that at some point... 8)

You were so close to getting it...that I'll give it to you.  It was actually ShE IS ILL not SHE is ILL.  But, think about, back then with Dot Matrix printers (as if the younger people on this site would know what those are) the majority of printed letters and numbers were in the squarish form.  So unless someone actually showed you the sheet right side up, or in this case, actually put it into your hand the right way, you might've thought that you were being shown a mathematical problem or an essay.

lol I realized that later. I was like "oh crap!" but I was typing fast and trying to get somewhere so I made a typo(s). Sorry. :) Thanks for giving it to me though. And yes, I realize that the way it was written would not have been as obvious. However, this is Frank we are talking about who can deactivate bombs and fly planes etc....You would think he would have tried to see it at all angles. hehe

Now I have to think of a question....hmm....

In The Witchmaster's Key, Frank and Joe are searching for clues when they get conked on the head. Where do they wake up?

True,  but at the same time the note was just tacked to a bulletin board, and as I recall, Frank and Joe both thought that it was just a regular note that their friend had written, just like he had written "Type up essay".

Bacon cheeseburgers are the best!  - (I'm pretty sure that's like a direct quote from Joe- I think it may be the first line of "Double Exposure". I have no idea why I would remember that. lol ;D)

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on May 02, 2010, 05:55:27 PM
The melted keys from the Hardy's yellow convertible that blew up in Dead On Target (and which, strangely, if I recall correctly, made their last appearance in Shock Waves in March 1989).
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on May 02, 2010, 10:03:49 PM
You're right tomswift2002- it was the melted keys (rather than coins ;)), I was thinking of.
And I remember thinking it was pretty cool that it was mentioned in the Supermystery (88) title "Shock Waves". Obviously, that series is set in the Casefiles universe where the Gray Man and The Network and The Assassins make appearances and Nancy Drew apparently has knowledge of The Network. (Does anyone know if she ever works with The Network in The Nancy Drew Files? Seems like they would've recruited her too.) She does essentially work with The Network somewhat in "Operation: Titantic" as she's helping Frank and Joe with their case. Just like in the Supermystery (07) titles, Nancy Drew has knowledge of ATAC. (Again, does anyone know if she is mentioned as working with ATAC in the Girl Detective books?)

I think that's one of the main differences between the Hardys and Nancy. The Hardys often work undercover and for the government (The Network, ATAC, the Justice Department, or even SKOOL), Nancy, on the other hand, seems to like to work with a client and help the people effected by the case on a personal level. She even said something about this in one of the new Drew/Hardy crossovers...
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on May 04, 2010, 11:09:55 AM
Okay- cool. Good to know. To be fair though, Frank and Joe certainly get involved in cases on a personal level too (as the original version of "The Tower Treasure" clearly demonstrated.) But yeah- I can see that Frank and Joe tend to get recruited and work with the government agencies more than Nancy. I guess her main dealings with any authorities is Chief McGinnis at the River Heights Police Department. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on May 04, 2010, 06:49:30 PM
Nancy should be glad that she's not in the ATAC. I'm not a huge fan of it. I love the Network because the Assassins come part of that package. I just don't see Nancy in those type of situations as much. To be honest, I haven't read Nancy by herself. She's always with my hunky Hardys. lol So I really don't know if she would get in those types of scenarios. And I agree that the Hardys help people on a personal level all the time but not exclusively.

Who is the owner of the Bayport Blues?

Crap...I feel like this is in my brain ready to come out but it won't. Grr.

Okay- I'm pretty sure the 1995 release is "Illegal Procedure". I'm not positive, but I'm thinking the 1987 release is "Dead on Target".


You got it right.  Simon & Schuster was reprinting Digest titles at the time and someone mistakenly thought that Dead On Target (Casefiles #1, 1987) and Illegal Procedure (Casefiles #95, 1995) were Digest titles (S&S was reprinting some of the late 90's/early 2000's Minstrel titles in the "New" Aladdin format).  Both error printings were limited to 3000 copies each, with Dead On Target being declared "Out Of Print" by September 2004, while Illegal Procedure went out of print sometime after  May 2006, but before December 31, 2007.

Also Illegal Procedure's error printing is the 2nd printing for the title, so, aside from putting it next to another Casefile and seeing if it is taller, the only way that you can tell whether you have the regular Archway version or the 2002 error printing is to look on the copyright page and see what printing the copyright page says.  Otherwise all the ads are the same and the Publisher is listed as Archway paperbacks.

The Dead On Target 2002 error printing is easier to pick out, since it was actually published under Simon & Schuster's Simon Pulse imprint, so there is a different logo on the spine for the publishing company.  Plus the copyright page is laid out differently from the regular Archway's.  And the book is taller than the regular Casefiles.  Otherwise the ads are the same.

Frank actually quotes the Boy Scout motto ("Be prepared"- which incidentally, MacGyver quotes this as well in the 1st. Season episode "The Guantlet"- whereupon he also mentions that he himself was a Boy Scout as a kid. 8)) in The Hardy Boys Digests #160 "A Game Called Chaos". Joe then calls Frank "such a Boy Scout". :D

You got it.  Funny thing is, I was just looking at my copies of #'s 148-155 and the books themselves report that #153 Eye On Crime was actually the last book produced by Mega-Books, even though it had been reported that Simon & Schuster took over with #151 Rocky Road To Revenge.

Being the "butt" of Hardy jokes.  (Boy...it's been a while since I read a story with Oscar Smuff in it that I don't remember him having a third job.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on July 22, 2010, 12:53:32 AM
Well, he was only referred to as "Smuff" in the one book in which he had this job. So, theoretically this could be a different Smuff, but how many Smuffs do you know?

I'll admit I know nine (Hugibert, Falconer, Tennyson, Asgard, Isachar, Asghar, Usakirana, Oscard, Oszl?r, and Rob). But there's only ever been one Smuff in The Hardy Boys.

Which unrevised books have you read.

No, I can safely say it was not a girl. In the early Hardy Boys women don't exist outside the kitchen. And girls don't exist outside the dance floor.

I don't have a favorite HB of all time but I like most Casefiles, Undercover Brothers, Graphic Novels, and revised Blue Spines. I also read some Digests.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on August 23, 2010, 06:00:04 PM
What makes it better?

Well with the original texts you have stories that are anywhere from 22 to 25 chapters long, with about 220 pages, which is far more room than a 160-170 page book with 20 chapters.

Plus, you haven't read a Hardy Boys book until you've read the Canadian editions by Leslie McFarlane.  (Especially his version of The Melted Coins.)

I think you got it, SDLAgent. I pored through the book the other day and saw that and figured it had to be it- just haven't been here to post it.
And just real quick on the subject of The Hardy Boys- I love all the books. They're all good. (I will say that I enjoy some series better than others- but for the most part, I can find something to enjoy from all of them.) :)

SDL is right.

And I don't hate any series and I do read some. I just am not into it. I've read five of the older HB/ND and three of the newer and I went back and looked at my originals and I own one that has twenty-five chapters. I guess I have read an unrevised original.

What year did the Hardy boys first "meet" Nancy Drew?

1988?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Sounds like a trick question, but I'll say 1977. 8)

1977 is correct.

That was a hard question.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on August 26, 2010, 10:03:25 PM
You were technically correct in the year of the first book series featuring Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys, that of course being Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys Supermysteries (1988) series. But their first literary meeting came in 1980 with the advent of the Super Sleuths books. (Unless you want to count some mini booklets that came with select cereal boxes in 1978 I believe, at the height of the popularity of the 1970s show.) And of course, this is where their first meeting takes places- in the "The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula" 2-part Season 2 premiere episode of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, which first aired in 1977.
And that's why I said this was kind of a trick question. ;)

Okay- next up....

Which of The Hardy Boys books is the only one to get an adaptation that's at least fairly close to the book on more than one television show?
(Note: There could possibly technically be up to two answers for this, though I would say one is of indeterminable measure.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 11, 2010, 01:56:10 PM
The only one that I can think of is The Clue Of The Screeching Owl.  Although that was only on the 70's TV series.  I can't think of any story that was made for 2 of the TV series.

tomswift2002 got it. The Clue of the Screeching Owl is the book I was thinking of. There was a version of this book on the 1970s The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and on the 1969 The Hardy Boys cartoon. (According to episode guides online anyway. http://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Filmation_Associates/H-R/The_Hardy_Boys/)
I was also thinking of The Tower Treasure since we know that The Mickey Mouse Club did "The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure" serial as an adaptation of that book and it's possible that the first episode of The Hardy Boys cartoon was an adaptation as well, but that's just conjecture until someone can get an official episode guide from Filmation or something.
Anyway- yeah, that one was hard, so good job on getting it! :D
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 11, 2010, 03:39:13 PM
Unfortunately lists for the Animated series are rather incomplete, seeing as the cartoon hasn't been on TV for close to 30 years, and no one is sure where the rights are.

In which Hardy Boys episode does a Shaun Cassidy LP make an appearance?

"A Perfect Stranger"? (total guess here- I'd have to go back and look at the episodes, but I know what scene you're talking about. I just can't remember which episode it's on. But it was really cool when they did that. 8))
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 22, 2010, 06:35:44 PM
Here's a clue:  the LP doesn't appear till the 95 series.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on October 24, 2010, 12:18:26 PM
The 95 series??? Darn...I haven't watched those in probably a decade! I should get on that.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 25, 2010, 06:07:01 PM
Yeah- I know it's on the 1995 series- I just can't remember which episode. One day I might actually have some time and watch these again. But I did enjoy this version of The Hardy Boys well enough when it was on the air and when I watched through the whole series after getting them on DVD.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on October 26, 2010, 01:32:14 AM
I have to watch them again to decide how much I liked them or not. I just haven't had time. I should have a Hardy Boys Day or something soon. lol :)

No answer yet for this trivia question??  Was it the A Perfect Stranger episode?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 27, 2010, 07:34:53 AM
Okay, I finally went back and looked through the episodes and after watching "A Perfect Stranger" again- I can tell you, it's not that episode. The episode in question is "Jazzman".

I think it would be funny if a Shaun Cassidy song shows-up in the new TV series. Maybe one of the boys turns on a radio and it's playing. And Joe says, "Aw, man. Turn that off! I can't stand Shuan Cassidy!"
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 27, 2010, 07:22:19 PM
Yeah- it would be a nice reference. Or maybe Frank catches a rerun of an early Baywatch episode and comments that Parker Stevenson's character is a pretty cool dude. :D
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 27, 2010, 07:32:10 PM

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on October 27, 2010, 07:35:32 PM
Ah, just a guess...Revenge of the Desert Phantom?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Are you gonna give us a clue like what series its in? Casefiles, digest, etc.

Clue? What do you think this is- a totally awesome website devoted to an insanely popular and awesome mystery book series? 8)
Okay, so yeah it is- and I can do that if needs be. Let's get a couple guesses at least, and I'll put up a hint a few posts down the road. ;)
    And here's a clue right now- it's not Revenge of the Desert Phantom- but good guess.

Tricky.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 28, 2010, 05:39:16 PM
Ah, a technicality. I knew I should've put up a disclaimer. I was thinking of a book within one of the Hardy Boys series and not so much the spin-off books. But you are technically right with The Hardy Boys Detective Handbook. The book I was thinking of is one of the Digests though- and it was a change for the books in more ways than one.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 02, 2010, 08:41:07 AM
Nope, not that one either. But if it helps, the last two guesses both have something in common with the book I'm thinking of. (i.e. All three of those books signified the same change for the series.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on November 02, 2010, 09:59:41 PM
The Hypersonic Secret #135?? It only has 14 chapters.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 02, 2010, 11:13:50 PM
No- I just doublechecked- it's got 15 chapters. That's not the one I'm looking for. Sorry if this is getting to be troublesome to find the title, but I guess you're well trained for that now with most of my trivia questions. ;D
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

(And yes, that was a hint too.) ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on November 04, 2010, 05:46:37 PM
It's either #161 Training for Trouble (April 2000: file folder cover design debuts on the Minstrel books) or #171 The Test Case (January 2002: still the same file folder cover, but now printed by Aladdin Paperbacks).
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on November 04, 2010, 08:51:18 PM
Thanks for the extra hint Mac! but Ho Ho OH NO ...I think Captain Santa Claus got it. Bah humbug.


lol
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 05, 2010, 12:22:51 PM
Yeah- Captain Santa Claus is the winner. I was indeed thinking of #161 Training for Trouble
I remember first reading this when it came out some years ago and noticing that not only was there a totally different cover design, but there was also only 14 chapters. I think this is the lowest amount of chapters I've ever seen in a Hardy Boys book. [Though the page count was actually still about the normal amount I normally see in the Digests (from Revenge of the Desert Phantom forward, that is)- somewhere around 150 pages or so.] I don't know if any of the Undercover Brothers books have gone any lower on chapter counts than that offhand. But that's the first Hardy Boys book to have less than 15 chapters to the best of my knowledge (and that's within a series.) Captain Santa Claus also pointed out a neat technicality earlier with The Hardy Boys Detective Handbook that I hadn't even thought of. So anyway- nice job and challenge away. :) 8)

Your turn SDL.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on November 08, 2010, 03:11:10 AM
Scarce? Yeah...I've never heard of it!  Is it good?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 08, 2010, 04:33:58 PM
Yeah, it's pretty good. I didn't see this one in time and perhaps it's just as well because I probably would've bowed out anyway. I knew this one only because I've got a copy of the book. I read it a while back and I enjoyed the short stories pretty well. If you're familiar with the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys: Super Sleuths! books, it's a pretty similar format. Obviously, in keeping with the spirit of Camp Fire, Inc., most all (if not all) of the stories are set on camping expeditions in the great outdoors. And Frank, Joe and Nancy are essentially camp counselors throughout the stories, if I remember correctly. And they all do have short story form mysteries to solve, generally with one of the organization's principles and philosophies imbued in the story to some degree. (It's not like it's an overarching thing, but they do usually talk some about it somewhere.) For anyone who likes The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew crossovers outside of the Supermysteries '88 series and Casefiles universe- all three of these books- Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: Campfire Stories and Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys: Super Sleuths! and Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys: Super Sleuths! 2 offer some fun crossover stories set in the original continuity and for the Super Sleuths books anyway, feature the trio solving mysteries in both Bayport and River Heights, with additional supporting characters showing up at times too. The first Super Sleuths book also features "The Secret of Mountaintop Inn", originally published as "Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys Solve a Christmas Mystery" in the December 16, 1980 issue of Family Circle magazine. So it's fun for huge Christmas fans like me just for that. :D  (I'm pretty sure the Camp Fire Stories book also features a winter festival in one of the stories, but I'm not sure if Christmas is specifically mentioned.)

Well, when I first read about this book, "Camp Fire, Inc." stuck in my head because I thought it was a odd name.

Fenton Hardy.

I think Chet has too.....
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 11, 2010, 09:43:57 PM
Captain Santa Claus has got it. Fenton Hardy has made an appearance in Disney's The Hardy Boys serials on The Mickey Mouse Club, on the 1967 pilot TV-movie The Mystery of the Chinese Junk, the 1969-1971 The Hardy Boys cartoon, the 1977-1979 The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and the 1995 The Hardy Boys show.
I was thinking of doing Chet Morton too though, by limiting it just to the Hardys' friends- he would certainly be the winner there, showing up in the 1967 pilot, the cartoon, the '70s show and the '90s show. (Though it was only guest appearances for both Fenton Hardy and Chet Morton on the '90s show- but at least they were there at some point.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

MacGyver got it.  That was the first sentence from Grave Danger.

Post by: MacGyver on December 03, 2010, 04:39:24 PM
For some reason, I actually knew that one right off the bat. I don't know why, but that line had stuck in my head from when I read the book and I just knew it was the start of Grave Danger. :)

Anyway- I will think on a new question and post one shortly.

Okay- here we go. In what state in America is Bayport located?
(Bonus if you can name where this is stated) 8)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

I believe Massachusetts. I think they stated it in one of the Casefiles.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on December 03, 2010, 07:08:33 PM
AlwaysAJoeFan got it first. It is Massachusetts!
I would actually be interested to know which of The Hardy Boys Casefiles states this.
I was actually thinking of an episode of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries - in "The House on Possessed Hill", Fenton Hardy specifically says that there's never been an earthquake in Bayport, Massachusetts.
Well- good job, then! That round was quick. Next up. 8)

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on December 04, 2010, 03:19:17 AM
Bayport is also located in New York and New Jersey. The Casefiles say the former, the UB the latter.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on December 04, 2010, 05:11:05 PM
Bayport is also located in New York and New Jersey. The Casefiles say the former, the UB the latter.

Bayport Buccanneers has Bayport in New Jersey, while Hurricane Joe says that its in New York, so the UB's have Bayport being in both States.

And the Casefiles have Bayport in New York State, while the Original Continuity (1927-2005) tends to be rather vague about where Bayport is, except that it is close to New York City.

But Massachusetts was also mentioned in Acapulco Spies, when Fenton makes the phone call just after the titles.  Fenton's making a collect call and the operator asks him to where, and he replies "Bayport, Massachusetts".  (The state with the worst name to spell.)

There is none as far as I know, but I suppose if you don't post something in 50 million years, someone might eventually carry forward with it. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on December 06, 2010, 02:21:32 PM
Bayport is definitely mentioned being in different locations. It's also near a bay. I always envision it being near New York City. They go there quite a bit and within a day. Although I guess you can get anywhere in an airplane. Usually they drive or take a train though.

There's no time limit but we are always excited to see the new question...so don't take 50 million years. :) Please.

Yeah, I live in Canada (and Trevor does, too). I was just messing around to see if anyone fell for it. Looks like some of you did! LOL! Canada actually isn't a big state in the US, it's Sovereign state that's bigger than the US in size.

But some Canadians are confused about our government. Lots of Canadians think that the Prime Minister is the head-of-state when the Queen of Canada (represented by the Governor General) actually is. The Prime Minister is the head of government.

I think Australia's pretty sparsely populated still. They have a smaller population than us and like us much of the country is largely unpopulated. Here it's the Canadian Arctic, there it's the Australian Outback.

(Props to anyone who actually is familiar with this and can remember when it was first released.)
And in all seriousness, though I'm not planning on moving anywhere unless God sends me somewhere, I love Canada. There are a lot of cool things there- like the Canadian James Naismith who invented basketball, and the beautiful Canadian mountains and woods, and ice hockey, William Shatner and Michael J. Fox and Matt Thiessen (lead singer for Relient K) are from there, and of course, The Red Green Show and The Littlest Hobo and Danger Bay. And a lot of MacGyver was filmed in Vancouver and used Canadian actors and actresses. And there are a lot more things of course- particularly some folks I know there and all the cool Canadian people on this forum of course. :)
Of course, I love all countries for that matter. I like to think they all have their own beauty in their own way- and all people in those countries are beautiful in their own way too. That's how God made them. (Ecclesiastes 3:11) 8)

Dixon's?

And to be clear, I've got nothing against Obama. I was mocking the position (of President) more than the man. I don't know what people expected from him. He hasn't worked any miracles to fix the US economy yet and that makes people mad I guess.

That's cool. I like some things Obama has done but I definitely don't like everything he's done so far. (But this is true of most every president really.) And I really get tired of the near-Messianic comparisons people seem to make. The government can do all they can, but he's still just a man. I pray for him and the government as Romans 13 instructs, but ultimately I trust and hold to God over government.
       But as hardygirl847 said- this could lead into a political discussion that would probably be best left in the Off-topic forum, but I've said all I want to say on it right now anyway.

And to the question at hand, I think it's technically F.W. Dixon's, but SDLagent pretty much got it there.

Thanks Spencer and Mac for clarification. People expect Obama to fix everything. There were even people interviewed (back when he was first elected) that would say things that made him seem like he was power to do anything. Some of it was ridiculous. He is just a man, and I at least commend him for trying to take such a sad case and turn it into something better. But enough of that...back to the question...

My answer was F.W. Dixon's. Mac and Spencer got it right. Sorry AlwaysaJoeFan! I shall have to go back quite a ways to see your question. :/

Here's his question...it was WAY back there. lol

In Genius Thieves, what does Mr. Castigan teach?

I was kind of exaggerating and joking around a bit. Sometimes it happens since we've had discussions and jokes about Canada and the U.S. before.

I agree, I don't think we should get into politics either (or not too far into it, anyway). I should have known that my comment wouldn't have stopped at just SDLagent and me. Hope it wasn't taken too seriously. If anything ever sounds "off", I really don't mean it that way.

Here's a clue:

Buster Buckles was working in film in the era when this type of film was used, but it is no longer used.

The type of film that Buster Buckles used and was storing is a comparable analog to highly acidic paper being used in books.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on January 03, 2011, 11:32:48 PM
Buster liked silent films and the film had nitrate or something in it that made it um...well...bad. Don't want to give out any spoilers. I can't think of the actual name of it though.

Post by: MacGyver on January 04, 2011, 10:06:56 AM

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on January 07, 2011, 05:54:55 PM
The Shattered Helmet Chapter 13 page 113

Inside lay the old nitrate celluloid, its pungent smell rising from the tins.

Hardygirl, you got it.  Buster Buckles was working in the film era when Nitrocellulose, or nitrate film, was being used  Unfortunately, because the film was highly unstable, a lot of movie houses were burnt to the ground from the film catching on fire inside the projector, and a number of "room temperature" storage facilities also blew up, which led to the remaining nitrate films being stored in "cold storage", not to mention that "cold storage" also helped to prevent the nitrate from decomposing very quickly.  And nitrate film was also the reason why acetate and cellulose triacetate film were invented (and in the late 1980's the current film base of Polyethelene Terephthalate or PET, which is Polyester based, but this is mostly used for post-production and release prints not for filming) in order to preserve film longer and safer.

OK...I picked a question..

On the daily show quiz that Frank participates in, who are his teammates?

I don't know Frank participated in a daily show quiz.

Here's a hint...


"(blank), who was one of Frank's teammates on the daily quiz show, was tall and gangly, with tightly curled red hair and a freckled face."-Page 2, The Prime-Time Crime, Digest # 109

lol- well, I knew which book before the hint. (I don't know why, but the quiz show thing just instantly reminded me of The Prime-Time Crime- maybe because that was one of the last in the Hardy Boys Digest series I had read. (even though that's been some time ago.)
Anyway, it was still a great question though.

Are we allowed to ask general questions about the trivia question for hints?
i.e. I have an idea which book this might be referring to, but I'm wondering if I'm allowed to just ask if this question is referring to a particular series or not.

In that case, in order to narrow the field and confirm or deny a suspicion I had, does the event described in the question take place in one of the Frank and Joe Hardy: The Clues Brothers books?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on January 19, 2011, 07:51:27 PM
The event takes place in one of the books that does not exceed 100 pages.

Okay, here's the answer.

From pages 3 and 4 of All Eyes On First Prize:

"I wonder if I could invent a new food," Chet said thoughtfully.  "Something that tasted good, filled you up, and had no calories."

"We have it already.  It's called water, Chet," Frank answered.

I know that rare coins have come up in a couple of Hardy Boys books. I'm pretty sure you're not talking about The Vanishing Thieves. I guess I can state the obvious here. Is this coin perhaps one of The Melted Coins? (in either the original or revised text)?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

It's from the original text of The Melted Coins.

No.  (Does no one have a copy at home?  I realize that the book wasn't reprinted by Applewood, but it was out till 1970, so there are tons of copies at used bookstores in both DJ, even without the DJ, and PC form.  Or even in a library?)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on February 21, 2011, 02:44:44 PM
Unfortunately, The Melted Coins is one of the original text books I do not have yet. It's possible I could find it at a library- but if it hasn't been reprinted by Applewood, then I'm doubtful that the library would have it. Although I do run across quite a few original text books every so often at various used book stores and antique stores and such. But it's getting to the point where you may just want to call it because it doesn't look like anyone's coming up with this answer anytime soon.

No.

And, okay, wow, for one that I thought someone would get right away, it sure turned out to be Hard Question #2 in a row.  The answer was a "Dona Luisa" (sorry I don't have a key on my keyboard to do the squiggle line over the "n" in Dona)

Anyway, here's a new question (which I hope is easier).

Within the first 30 pages of Danger On The Diamond, which previous case is referenced by name?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on February 21, 2011, 09:34:44 PM
Wow we were all way off.

Sorry Trevor!!!

But this one I know for sure!! I LOVED this book! Frank gets knocked out with a baseball for crying out loud! :)

Desert Phantom is my final answer.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on February 21, 2011, 10:33:03 PM
I think it's actually Revenge of the Desert Phantom, #84 in The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on February 22, 2011, 12:57:09 PM
Mac, yes that is the whole name. However, it is referred to (in the book) as Desert Phantom. It can be found on page 17. :)

"The van had been given to  Frank and Joe by Chief Collig after the y had solved the Desert Phantom Case." It's a blue police van...which reminds me a little of their high tech black van from the Casefiles.

I guess it depends on how picking Tomswift is about the answer. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on February 22, 2011, 06:36:27 PM

Sorry- I can't resist on these things. I'm a huge fan of my '80s sitcoms- mainly the shows I grew up with as a child- I still love watching them in reruns today- and I generally are better up on them than most current shows- lol ;D

Let's see- other possibilities- Hazel, Alice, Mrs. Garrett, Adelaide, Pearl, Mr. Belvedere, Geoffrey, Nell, Florence, Karen, and of course- Charles! ;D

Okay- for real, it's "Elizabeth or sometimes just Eliza."

Mac,

That's cool. I haven't seen that on reruns in years though. :)

Sorry your names were not correct.

Tomswift...you got it.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on February 25, 2011, 12:59:26 AM
Ah- okay. I was kidding around with that list of names- but I was serious on that last one. And technically it is correct too, but I'll concede to tomswift2002 on this.
[Although being a TV fan in general, I couldn't resist throwing out some other famous TV housekeepers, after getting the ball rolling with Tony Micelli on Who's The Boss? ;D)
For the record- the others were- Hazel (from Hazel), Alice (from The Brady Bunch), Mrs. Garrett (from Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life- though she was only a housekeeper on the first show), Adelaide and Pearl (both of these ladies were the later housekeepers on Diff'rent Strokes after Mrs. Garrett went to work at Eastland), Mr. Belvedere (from Mr. Belvedere), Geoffrey (from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air), Nell (from Gimme A Break!), Florence (from The Jeffersons and the short-lived spin-off, Checking In- though she wasn't a housekeeper on that show), Karen (from a couple of classic Season 3 episodes of Family Ties), and of course- Charles! (My good friend Charles from Charles in Charge of course.) ;D 8)]


Anyway- back to the question at hand. "Elizabeth or sometimes just Eliza" was a serious answer though and it was a direct quote from page 30 of Night of the Werewolf- however, I forgot that I have a later Minstrel printing of the book. In the original Wanderer printing, the housekeeper is called Pocahontas and in both she is identified as half Mohawk Indian. Apparently, the name was changed to Elizabeth in later printings, due to people complained about Pocahontas being offensive- I guess a racial stereotype or something along those lines. Anyway- I was thrown for a while on that until I remembered reading this on The Hardy Boys wiki and there you go.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on February 25, 2011, 09:47:49 PM
I actually thought that you'd call it a tie, since the 2005 Grosset & Dunlap version uses the original Wanderer (1979-1986) text (Pocahontas), but the Minstrel texts all use the altered text (Elizabeth, 1987-1996, or whenever the Minstrel book hit the out of print lists).

Anyway, trivia question.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 01, 2011, 01:58:13 AM
Well, when I first saw the question I immediately thought of Adam Shaw in Pure Evil, who also works in an industry that deals with trees because he harvest maple syrup from them. Though technically, the book says Adam is Callie's great-uncle.
Judging by the number of smilies on Tom's last post- I'm guessing he set this up as a trick question. ;)

How about now?????
















Macgyver got it by recognizing it as a trick question.  Callie actually has 2 uncles that work in industries that deal with trees.  Her uncle Stan (#60) is an environmentalist trying to protect trees, while her Great-Uncle Adam (#97) makes maple syrup.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Well, then you should give some of the Original 58 Grossett & Dunlap books and the Digests a try.
And I imagine you probably have read some of the Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys Supermystery ('88) series though. Or is that too much Nancy Drew for your liking?

Hmm, well I would recommend reading them of course, but then I like Nancy Drew just fine. Buried in Time and Mystery Train are two I like really well in that series.

Of course, those books won't help you with this question though. ;)
But I do think they're worth reading if you get a chance. But it's up to you- I wasn't trying to deride you for having different preferences or just not having read any of the other books yet. I keep forgetting that I grew up with the Originals and Digests and can remember when the Casefiles were first introduced- even though it doesn't always seem that long ago. :D
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 04, 2011, 05:50:00 PM
I think I know the answer.  Part of it is part-of-the-title of a late-90's Digest?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 04, 2011, 07:39:38 PM
Hmm- I don't think so, unless Chet's taken more than one undercover name. I probably should specify that he only used this in one book as far as I know and not on a regular basis.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 07, 2011, 02:40:16 PM
I suppose that's the problem with these kinds of questions. Since there are so many of The Hardy Boys books and different series- and different writers at different times have written different scenarios that don't always stay in one single continuity, it's easy to see how I might have one answer in mind but it could easily spiral from there into a lot of other possibilities. (I don't think there are that many other possibilities in this case, although admittedly I can think of some other possible choices.) But hopefully this will help bridge the gaps in this mystery for you. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 08, 2011, 08:48:23 PM
Well, since no one's taken a stab, here's my guess:

Gator Two.

Post by: MacGyver on March 09, 2011, 02:13:46 AM
Sorry, no, that's not the one I was thinking of. I'm not actually sure where that one is from- but if no one else can guess it, I'll give it to tomswift2002 since there seems to be more than one possible answer. But look closely at my last post- there's a big clue in there. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: hardygirl847 on March 09, 2011, 01:15:37 PM
Now we just had to figure out what the clue is (I have an inkling) and what it means. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 09, 2011, 03:06:24 PM
Yeah, hopefully someone will get it soon- otherwise this thread will just drag on and hang on like a ball and chain.

(And yes, that was another clue there.) ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on March 13, 2011, 04:06:47 PM
I'm not actually sure where that one is from

It's from The Skyfire Puzzle in Chapter 1 when the boys and Fenton are doing the spying.  Chet's code name for the radio is "Gator Two".

Ah- okay. That does sound familiar now. Shows how long it's been since I've read that book.
Well, the name I was looking for is more of an alias Chet took when helping Frank and Joe with some undercover work for a case.

Hint as to which series please...?

Post by: Hardy on March 14, 2011, 04:30:03 AM
okay- new question.

What is Chet's undercover name?

Hi everyone!  :) I just joined today and it looks like this question hasn't been answered yet. Are you looking for Chet Ball from The Mystery of the Spiral Bridge? It was his undercover name because his hobby right then was shot put and it referred to the heavy metal ball.  8)

And in retrospect, I probably should have been more specific to which series and all, but yes- you've got the right answer I was looking for!
Good job! :) 8)
It's been a while since I've read, but I really loved having all The Hardy Boys' friends doing the undercover work with them in The Mystery of the Spiral Bridge :)

Hi MacGyver! :) (I love that show, too, btw) And I agree about how cool The Mystery of the Spiral Bridge is and with the friends helping. One of my favorites as well with all of the great action and drama in it! 8)

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on March 16, 2011, 12:56:49 AM
Okay- I was thinking The Valiant sounded familiar, but mainly because it's the name of a cool Star Trek: The Next Generation novel by Michael Jan Friedman. ;)

But anyway- after that clue, I'm thinking maybe The Caribbean Cruise Caper? :D

Just post a new question from any of The Hardy Boys books or even TV shows or comic books or video games if you want. I think the field is pretty wide open as long as it's related to The Hardy Boys in some fashion or another (in an official canon basis, that is.  -i.e. Fanfiction stories would not be an open choice, but everything officially published and related to The Hardy Boys should be fair game.)

    Which of The Hardy Boys books was dedicated to the boys and girls of Alaska?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: JoeHardyRocks on April 13, 2011, 03:52:03 PM
The Alaskan Adventure?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Given the title, that would probably make sense- but no, that's not the one.

The Arctic Patrol Mystery?

Hmm- Frank and Joe do go up to Alaska in Trouble in the Pipeline, don't they? But sorry- that's not it.
Let's see- a hint....
Maybe I should clarify and say that this book was initially dedicated to the boys and girls of Alaska, but it doesn't have this dedication in later printings. That should narrow it down a lot! ;)

The Mystery at Devil's Paw

Maybe I should clarify and say that this book was initially dedicated to the boys and girls of Alaska, but it doesn't have this dedication in later printings. That should narrow it down a lot! ;)

Actually it was only on the Original Text version of the book due to Alaska just becoming a US state the year of the book's publication; it was removed with the Revision Text in 1973.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on April 15, 2011, 09:21:40 PM
Right- I know. I was trying to say that but still be a little vague about it to keep the guessing alive for a while longer. ;)

Well, Mattie got the answer then- it was The Mystery at Devil's Paw - and as tomswift2002 said, it was dedicated to the boys and girls of Alaska only in the original text printing because it was printed in the same year Alaska was added as the 49th. state to the United States of America- 1959.
Technically, I feel like I should give this to SDLAgent because he came up with the right title a while back- but then again, technically he hadn't offered it as a guess. So I guess Mattie can go ahead and do the next one. :)

Janet Hardy
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on September 12, 2011, 10:11:39 AM
(Technically this could also have been Gertrude as either she or Janet would be the "other aunt" comparatively ;))
But yes- I was mainly going for Janet Hardy, as named in "The Secret of Mountaintop Inn", the short story contained within Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: Supersleuths!
I was looking at this the other day and trying to figure out the family tree- I assume Janet is Fenton's sister-in-law, thus he must have a brother. [It seems highly unlikely Laura's maiden name would have also been Hardy, though I suppose it is possible.]
My next trivia question would be then- who are Karen Young's parents and what's her connection to Frank and Joe precisely? (Though perhaps this is making too much out of a short story that probably isn't exactly considered canon by most...)

Biff's dog was Sherlock. And Chet had two dogs. I can't remember the Hardys' dog!
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 20, 2011, 10:31:17 PM
Yep, I knew about Biff's dog- didn't realize Chet had two dogs, though I'm not surprised since he lived on a farm. I'm sure one of the books must have mentioned that somewhere... But yeah, at some point in The Hardy Boys' history, they do have a dog. This one I feel is going to be pretty tricky but you can get it. ;)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on October 21, 2011, 01:36:30 AM
I don't know if Chet ever had two dogs at the same time but he had one and got a new on in Screeching Owl.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 22, 2011, 10:55:40 PM
Okay- I do remember him having a dog in The Clue of the Screeching Owl now. It was even mentioned in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries episode version of that book, "The Mystery of Witches' Hollow", as Fenton is seen having a time of having to dogsit for Chet's dog. :)
Anyway, keep looking for the answer- I'm sure you'll see it somewhere soon enough.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: SDLagent on October 23, 2011, 12:13:37 AM
I'd forgotten that about "The Mystery of Witches' Hollow". In the book, he bought the dog in the Witches' Hollow area though.

Hmm-not the one I was thinking of actually- wasn't even aware of that one, but I'm not surprised, especially given the title and the nature of the series, that The Hardys were shown having a dog somewhere in The Hardy Boys: Clues Brothers series.
So I'll give you that one on a technicality, but there is another dog mentioned and it's in more of the normal Hardy Boys continuity. (i.e. Frank and Joe are both 18 and 17, respectively- at least I would view it that way.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

So did anyone ever figure out the dog I was thinking of? It may take you a minute as it's kind of a small thing but he does play a fairly important role in one Hardy Boys adventure- and it's quite a sight to see!
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

I would have to check both books... I'm beginning to realize there probably have been a good number of one-time references to dogs with The Hardy Boys.... I've been trying to give subtle hints, but perhaps I should just come right out and say it- the one I'm looking for is not in the books as far as I know
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Post by: MacGyver on November 24, 2011, 08:09:07 PM
Yeah- this one is kind of unfair since it's a hard-to-find appearance- so I'll just go ahead and say it- I was thinking of Tiny, who appears in the 1967 pilot The Hardy Boys: The Mystery of the Chinese Junk- but since you got the dog from the Clues Brothers book that I wasn't even aware of earlier, I'll give it to you.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on November 25, 2011, 09:49:34 PM
it was a pretty minor thing- the dog briefly showed up when The Hardys first go home and Aunt Gertrude greets them at the door with her doctor friend- and then later on Tiny helps keep the criminals at bay at the end of the pilot...

Post by: MacGyver on November 28, 2011, 08:51:56 AM
A music format (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8-track_tape) that was popular back in the '70s. It became something of a joke later on with the introduction of cassette tapes...
Somehow as a kid I was never aware of these until years later... I had LPs and cassette tapes (and much later CDs) but never 8 track tapes. Of course, now I can find them all the time at thrift stores. ;D
A friend of mine who works on older cars once found a working 8 track player in a vehicle and told me he was able to keep the player and so he set it up in his truck to listen to some of his old classic albums. That's pretty cool- I like older technology. :)

Um, I'm just going to make a guess...a clue? :D No wait, a firecracker since this question is maybe from Murder on the Fourth of July (going by the clue of Seattle)?

No, it wasn't a firecracker.  Boy, this was a tough one, although it was from Murder On The Fourth Of July.  But the gift that Frank gave Bess was a "Save The Orca's" T-Shirt.

Nope, sorry, SDLagent, but that's a good read (only read the revised text so far, and that reminds me I have that title to read in a facisimile edition. :) Curious to see the differences.  8)

The House on the Cliff?

That's the one, JoeHardyRocks! :) Your turn! :)

Now that I hear the answer, it does sound familiar. Was this the name of The House on the Cliff in both the original and revised versions?

I think it was. I know it was in the original.

Yeah, I've read the original text recently enough to know it's in the original... I should have remembered that one... oh, well.
As for the revised text...I read it many years ago now....

The Hidden Harbor Mystery

I'll give it too you, since in Norway the Original Text and the Revised Text were issued as two seperate stories and the original was not taken out of print (hence, when you look at Norwegian lists, you'll see that the Norwegian title for #14 The Hidden Harbor Mystery (Siste stikk til Hardyguttene/Last trick to the Hardy Boys ) is the original, but #51 The Hidden Harbor Mystery ('Hardyguttene i farligg farvann' /'The Hardy Boys In Dangerous Waters').

Alright, so that means it's either one of the two Tom Swift ones or one of the Super Mysteries. I haven't read and don't have the two Tom Swift books and I only have a few of the Super Mysteries and haven't read many. Since your trivia question talked about French, it might mean they're in France, or maybe not, but, I know the titles of the Super Mysteries, and although I don't have this particular title, I'm wondering if maybe the answer is in the book The Paris Connection? Well, even though I don't have the answer right away, I'm enjoying the mystery, tomswift2002! :) And as you can tell, I'm really trying to figure it out! :)

When I first saw this question, I immediately thought of Evil, Inc., since that book is set in France as well. But when tomswift2002 mentioned that it was "sort of" from the Casefiles, then I started thinking the 1990s show, which also had some episodes set in France. And I'm pretty sure I recall the scene he's talking about. However, I don't recall what Frank's comparison was right now... if and when I get a chance, I can pull out my DVD set at home and check though.... :) 8)

Yes, that is correct. Good job. :) 8)

(I have both a Wanderer and Minstrel printing of Night of the Werewolf- Pocahontas is originally used in the Wanderer printing and then it's changed to Elizabeth in the Minstrel printing. I'm not sure why Pocahontas would be a discriminatory or offensive name somehow to use for a Native American character- but apparently someone thought it was an issue and decided to change it for the Minstrel version...)

Well, considering that the G&D version also used the internal pictures from the Wanderer edition, I think it was probably easier for them to reuse the Wanderer printing plates rather than retype setting the books. (Especially since the Minstrel plates would've Ben type set for no pictures.)

Hmm- well, then I'm thinking maybe it's from the Casefiles?

('Cause if it's Undercover Brothers, I won't know it- haven't read enough of those to know-lol. One of these days I may still read the rest of that series.....)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Not the Casefiles either or the Undercover Brothers.

Post by: MacGyver on October 07, 2013, 01:05:48 PM
Hmm- okay. That narrows it down then. I will have to keep digging on this one......
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 09, 2013, 06:14:26 PM
Well, I suppose I'll ask to be sure- is from either The Clues Brothers or Secret Files series?

You got it MacGyver.  The incident occurred in First Day, Worst Day.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 24, 2013, 05:33:33 PM
Aha! I thought so. First Day, Worst Day is one of the few of The Clues Brothers books that I have. I read it a while back and vaguely recalled that. One of these days I might invest in getting the whole series for both The Clues Brothers and Secret Files, but I just haven't really felt the need. I'd rather keep up with the Hardy Boys Adventures series at this point... (But I do have some books from both series, just for the sake of completion and having at least some from each series.)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

I'll try. ;) That's cool about the book. :)

Next trivia question:
What is it about the Pollitt house's location that caused Chief Collig to contact Captain Ryder? :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 29, 2013, 09:48:04 PM
It's at the top of smugglers tunnels that lead down to Barmet Bay, and Collig needed the Coast Guard to cut off the lower part of the criminal's base that could only be accessed by water.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: Hardy on October 30, 2013, 04:09:29 PM
It's at the top of smugglers tunnels that lead down to Barmet Bay, and Collig needed the Coast Guard to cut off the lower part of the criminal's base that could only be accessed by water.

You're definitely thinking of the right book and about the tunnels and the need for the Coast Guard, but Captain Ryder isn't with the Coast Guard, so it's a different reason about that for the answer to the trivia question. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 30, 2013, 05:56:55 PM
Is Captain Ryder with the state police, and Collig needed them because part of the property was in Bayport, and under his jurisdiction, while the other part was under state jurisdiction?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 30, 2013, 06:43:39 PM
That's sounding right and really familiar to me now that you say it- but Hardy Sleuth will have to confirm it of course.

Is Captain Ryder with the state police, and Collig needed them because part of the property was in Bayport, and under his jurisdiction, while the other part was under state jurisdiction?

Yep, he is. :)  Here are the exact details from House on the Cliff:

Quote from: House on the Cliff by Franklin W. Dixon
"Of course you realize that the area where the Pollitt house is located is outside the limits of Bayport, so my men can't go there. But I'll get in touch with Captain Ryder of the State Police at once, so he can assign men to the case."

Your turn, tomswift2002. :)
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 31, 2013, 05:16:50 PM
I thought so- that part sounds very familiar now. Is that from the revised version of The House on the Cliff or the original? I've read the original text more recently than the revised one...

Post by: MacGyver on October 31, 2013, 07:11:47 PM

Just curious. I'll post the official next trivia question soon.

No, it was from "New Year's Evil". (Viking Symbol has the boys in the pre-Nunavit Northwest Territories.)

Post by: MacGyver on November 07, 2013, 02:34:23 PM

By the way, I believe I was originally going for the location the Hardys go to in this book to solve the mystery, but it doesn't really matter at this point. [And as I'm sure you probably recall, that would be Barbados.]

Here's another clue. 

At the time of the imprint change, another trait of the published series was also changed.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on October 30, 2014, 02:55:19 PM
Okay.....I must admit I'm a bit stumped on this. I keep thinking of the later rerelease of some of The Hardy Boys Casefiles, particularly #95 Illegal Procedure, which was slightly taller than the usual Casefiles and according to Amazon's listing (http://www.amazon.com/Illegal-Procedure-Hardy-Boys-Casefiles/dp/0671882066/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414698680&sr=8-1&keywords=%22Illegal+Procedure%22+%2B+Hardy+Boys), it was apparently under Aladdin. (Not that I trust Amazon to always be accurate in all its listings...)

If that isn't what you're talking about, then I guess maybe- Grey Castle?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on October 30, 2014, 05:16:22 PM
No, Grey Castle was an independent licensee and was not owned by Simon & Schuster (unlike Archway and Aladdin).  Aladdin also is not correct.  Although, "Illegal Procedure" is a clue.

Yeah, Simon Pulse was the answer and only one book was published under the imprint: Dead On Target.  It was published in 2002 by accident, along with Illegal Procedure as someone at Simon & Schuster was given the job of reprinting Mystery Stories titles, and for some reason this person thought Target and Procedure were part of the Mystery Stories.  And, as far as anyone knows, the printer just reused the Archway printing plates for Procedure (with the exception of taking the 1 off the copyright page), even though the Archway imprint was no longer in use by 2002, but the changed the plates for Target so that the book came out under the Simon Pulse imprint, and the copyright page even mentions that the book was first published by Archway and Simon Pulse is its second publisher.

Nice! I remember when both those books suddenly showed up again in stores back in 2002. That was pretty cool to see The Hardy Boys Casefiles on the book shelves again, long after the run had finished. In fact, I think my copy of Illegal Procedure is that particular printing. :) 8)

Okay MacGyver, I guess no one's going after your question.

Anyway, here's a new trivia question.

In which Casefile is the Hardy's van first mentioned?
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on January 27, 2017, 11:51:43 AM
lol- after only a year? I'd forgotten about this thread. I think I'd have to look it up to find the answer myself to my last question. (When I get a chance, I'll find it and post it.)
Thanks for reviving the thread, tomswift2002.

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on January 27, 2017, 01:20:27 PM
Okay- to answer my own last question, the guy's name I was looking for is Larry Niven, known for his Ringworld book, among many others. If I recall correctly, a character (who turns out to be the villain) by this same name appears in the "Danger in the Sky" story in Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: Super Sleuths 2! book.

If I recall correctly, a character (who turns out to be the villain) by this same name appear in the "Danger in the Sky" story in Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: Super Sleuths 2! book.

Okay.  Larry Niven is also known for his Star Trek Animated Series episode "The Slaver Weapon" where he crossed his Known Space Universe creatures the Kzinti into Trek's universe.  The Kzinti's were going to make an appearance in Star Trek Enterprise's 5th season, but obviously that didn't happen.

But I thought it would've been like Stephen King or Christopher Pike (another Trek-related author).

But back to my question.  It may seem easy, but really, it's not.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!

Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on January 30, 2017, 08:34:35 AM
I didn't know Larry Niven had contributed to the Star Trek universe- and I definitely didn't know Christoper Pike had! (Captain Christoper Pike sure- but not the author. ;) ;D)

Now that you mentioned this about the question with the van, I feel like I may need to revise my earlier guess. However, if no one else is guessing, I'll put out what I feel now is the "obvious" answer that may not actually be technically right now.

Dead on Target
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: tomswift2002 on February 01, 2017, 08:30:15 AM
I figured someone would go for the easy answer.  Unfortunately, "Dead On Target" is not the answer.
Title: Re: The Hardy Boys Trivia Game!
Post by: MacGyver on February 02, 2017, 02:40:11 AM
Okay- that's what I thought. In that case, I feel like I know the answer for sure now, but as I said earlier- I'd rather let someone else guess first.
