Can the Once Upon a Time Cast Pass Our Trivia Test?

With so many new members joining the cast of Once Upon a Time this season, we thought it might be nice to test out how well they've paid attention to the show over the past six years.

From secret family members (the Charming family tree is seriously the most complicated thing to ever exist) to old enemies, there's a lot of stuff to remember about the fairytale characters of Storybrooke and now Hyperion Heights. A few of these trivia questions are general knowledge -- how Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) takes her hot cocoa for example -- while others are are little more confusing -- counting Hook deaths is no easy feat.

Naturally, Colin O'Donoghue passed with flying colors as the expert veteran of the show. Newbies Andrew J. West and Mekia Cox had a harder time of it, but they clearly did their due diligence when studying up on the show.

Can you pass our Once Upon a Time trivia test?

Once Upon a Time airs Fridays at 8/7c on ABC.

5 Facts You Didn't Know About It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, the third special based on Charles Schulz's Peanuts comic strip -- and second holiday-themed special, after A Charlie Brown Christmas -- has become a ubiquitous presence on TV every Halloween season (it airs Thursday and Sunday night at 8/7c on ABC), so you'd be forgiven for thinking you know all there is to know about It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. But we bet there's plenty you don't know.

Here are five fun facts you probably didn't know about It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

1. Lucy's signature move -- pulling the football away from Chuck as he's about to kick it, causing him to fly through the air and land on his back -- was animated for the first time here.


2. The image of Snoopy as the "Flying Ace" became a good luck charm for the NASA astronauts during the Apollo space missions. The crew of the Apollo 10 mission even nicknamed their lunar module "Snoopy" and their command module "Charlie Brown."

3. Recording Sally's lines was a race against time, because the six-year-old voicing her, Cathy Steinberg, had a loose front tooth and when it fell out, her speech would sound a little bit different. It fell out as she said her very last line.

4. The real Charlie Brown got rocks, too. Pranksters gave Peter Robbins, the 10-year-old boy who voiced Charlie Brown, rocks instead of candy when he went went trick-or-treating that year -- much like Charlie Brown in the film. Hopefully he also got Baby Ruths or Snickers or peanut M&Ms, too.

5. This last one is admittedly a little self-serving: Lucy is reading an issue of TV Guide featuring herself on the cover in one scene.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown airs Thursday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 29 at 8/7c on ABC.

Casual Renewed for Fourth and Final Season

Casual, one of Hulu's first original series, has been renewed for a fourth and final season, according to Deadline. The half-hour dramedy will return for eight final episodes next year.

Casual stars Michaela Watkins as Valerie, a divorced single mother who moves in with her younger brother Alex (Tommy Dewey), the founder of a dating site who has romantic problems of his own, and Tara Lynn Barr as Laura, Val's teenage daughter. At the end of Season 3, Val moved back into Alex's house after a time away, while Alex found out Rae (Maya Erskine), a woman he hooked up with, is pregnant. Season 3 was notable for having the majority of its episodes directed by women, including Carrie Brownstein, Lake Bell and Obvious Child director Gillian Robespierre.

Casual put Hulu on the map as a destination for original content and was the the first Hulu show to earn a series award nomination when it was nominated for comedy series at the 2015 Golden Globes.

"Once more. Impossible to overstate how much I love this show and these people, and how excited I am for this last chapter," star Tommy Dewey tweeted in response to the news.

"Oh yeah. Season 4 babies. Final and what I bet will be our best season yet!" Michaela Watkins tweeted.
