Awesome teaser! I loved it! I got all of #4 and Curious George, but I had never heard of most of the others, so I didn't get them. I'm surprised I didn't get Harrison Ford, though.

I liked this. I thought it was fairly easy because some of the names produce only one obvious answer. This could be very hard if you weren't using names like Elton, Boy, or Curious.

That was way fun! I didn't get them all, but as I've said before, I try to NOT remember too many entertainer's names to avoid being overly impressed or concerned about people I don't actually know in person. Weird? Well, I never claimed I was normal... Good teaser, great idea, Thanks! Happy Day to Everyone!

Thanks for all the kind words.
I made these up two years ago and had almost forgotten about them. Glad so many of you like them. I also have a name train II and a name train III teaser out there if you want more of these. Maybe I will try to make a forth one but if you guys have any good one feel free to use the idea and post your own.

I only knew 3 of the 5. But, this was a very Fascinating and Mind-working teaser. Keep up the fantastic work. Too bad it is a repeat and that one reads the responses and only puts new ones on.

It took me a few minutes to figure out that last one, but I finally got them all. I love these ones! I will definitely be checking out your other name trains, and will be adding this one to my favourites, and you to my list of buddies.

I don't want to nitpick, but your example has a little mistake:
It is Joan Jett not Jet.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
ElectronJohn*us*
Jan 01, 2007

You are right, Joan Jett is with two t's.
I should have known that since I like here music. Thanks everyone for the kind words and I am glad so many of you liked this one.

I'm with shawneeo. Not into the whole famous names stuff at all. I gave a half an effort, got 4/9 names, then looked at the answer and realized I should've gotten Harrison too. Oh well!

I did your Name Train II today and had a rough time, but a fund time, so I found this one. Fun, but not a killer. Thanks. Now I'm on to III.

This one was really fun. I only got a couple of them, but I really had fun trying to come up with the others. Thanks.
Babe*
Jan 16, 2013

I got two by pure accident. I am like some of the others who said they did not understand it. The names in the sample were foreign to me and made no sense at all so I guess that is part of it. Oh well, glad most of you liked it.

This type of quiz is wonderful - one of my favorites. I missed one but had fun trying to figure them out! Thanks for posting!
