Hello, and welcome to contest number five here at The Toy Box. These took a hiatus for a bit, but I'm looking to get back into the swing of things, so dive in and take a chance. Maybe you could be the winner.

But what's the prize you ask?

Up for grabs this time is the Hasbro Pulsecon exclusive, Snake Supreme Cobra Commander from the G.I. Joe Classified series.

This figure comes to one lucky winner in brand new, still in the box condition. Don't let the photo fool you, that's just a stock image from Hasbro's website.

How do you win? Well, this one's going to be a bit of a fun challenge. To win, you have to answer a bit of 80's television trivia. To make it all the more challenging, it's a two part question, and you have to get both right.

Rather than impose a time limit for this contest, we're going to cut directly to the chase. The first person to correctly answer the question in the comment section wins. So hear goes. Get your thinking caps on.

The question: In the 80's two artists contributed to two separate children's shows by performing the theme songs. One, was a very unusual girl, the other a famous group of hungry rappers. What were the shows, and who were the artists?

Alright, there's your question. Follow the hidden clues within it and test your 80's trivia knowledge! Good luck!

  1. Best guess!

    Police Academy The Animated Series - The Fat Boys
    Pee-wee's Playhouse - Cyndi Lauper


  2. I'm halfway there on this one. I'm really having to rack my brains!

  3. Dang - I was going to wild guess Cyndi Lauper and Will Smith but had no freakin clue.

  4. I had Cyndi Lauper with Pee-Wee's Playhouse but I couldn't get the second one. What's funny is that when I was doing some Google searching on "hungry" rappers I came up with the Fat Boys but all of the articles and lists focused on their Nightmare on Elm Street part IV work.

    I had most of the Police Academy toys as a kid but I really don't remember the cartoon even being on.
