# Twisted TV Titles, season 2

Inspired by this puzzle by Pugmonkey, here is a second set of Twisted TV Titles.

Each of the new shows pictured or described below is a copy of an existing program with the name changed by a single letter. The original shows were popular on American television and may have aired anytime from 1950 to today. Identify the twisted show title and the original.

Hint for #11:

Aired primarily during the 1960s

• Thanks for the link to my original puzzle. It's great that this is continuing! – Pugmonkey Mar 9 '18 at 11:15
• @Pugmonkey - I forsee many good things in the future for your puzzle type! It's lots of fun! – BruceWayne Mar 9 '18 at 17:21
• Thanks, but I don't claim any originality. I didn't consciously copy another puzzle, but I grew up reading GAMES magazine, and this seems like something that might have shown up there. I'm sure its been done before. – Pugmonkey Mar 9 '18 at 17:35
• I've seen similar quizzes on for example Sporcle but this one was much better. Most of the answers were really hard to get but obvious when revealed. – Jaap Scherphuis Mar 9 '18 at 19:01
• Has a correct answer been given? If so, please don't forget to $\color{green}{\checkmark \small\text{Accept}}$ it :) – Rubio Mar 19 '18 at 20:49

1) (theonetrupath)

NYPD Clue -> NYPD Blue

2) (Pugmonkey)

Newmart -> Newhart

3) (Pugmonkey)

The Punsters -> The Munsters

4) (Bass)

Saturday Night Hive -> Saturday Night Live

5) (L_Church)

Antmaniacs -> Animaniacs

6) (theonetrupath)

America's Funniest Hope/Nome Videos ->America's Funniest Home/Home Videos (Both fit though probably Nome)

7) (theonetrupath)

Lust -> Lost

8) (totallyhuman)

Botman -> Batman

9) (Pugmonkey)

The Magic School Bug -> The Magic School Bus

11) (Rupert Morrish)

Dewitched -> Bewitched

12) (Jaap Scherphuis)

The Daily Shoe -> The Daily Show

• Welp, didn't see BruceWayne's answer, but yeah – Peregrine Lennert Mar 9 '18 at 17:26
• Major credit goes to BruceWayne – Peregrine Lennert Mar 9 '18 at 20:50
• Depending on which is the exact one for #'s 2 & 10, it will be changed – Peregrine Lennert Mar 9 '18 at 20:53

8)

Botman, playing on Batman.

I thought I should answer this one, considering it's my avatar. :P

• Is the avatar you (and OP) used from a show or something? Or did OP happen to find your avatar, and use it? (also, nice answer!) – BruceWayne Mar 9 '18 at 16:12
• @BruceWayne This is an image that I made myself, and use as an avatar most everywhere. DLosc asked if they could use it and I let them. – totallyhuman Mar 9 '18 at 16:16

12)

The Daily Shoe (The Daily Show)

2) big guess:

"Newmart", twisted from "Newhart". I don't see any other way to make the Vermont connection ...

3)

"The Punsters", twisted from "The Munsters"

9)

"The Magic School Bug", twisted from "The Magic School Bus"

• Seems reasonable enough! Now get 9 and 11! – L_Church Mar 9 '18 at 14:23
• He's going for it folks :D – L_Church Mar 9 '18 at 14:36
• Dang... I just got #9 too. – kaine Mar 9 '18 at 14:45

I'm going to go all out here... first answer go easy

5)

Antmaniacs (Animaniacs) (They look pretty manic to me...)

I'll kick it off...

1:

NYPD Clue (NYPD Blue)

6:

America's Funniest Hope Videos ('Home')

7:

Lust (Lost)

Another guess at this one: 11:

The Hood Wife ('Good')

• I think 6 is should be ".... Nome Videos". "Hope" would work better for Arkansas rather than Alaska. – Pugmonkey Mar 9 '18 at 10:44
• 7 is actually fairly accurate as just the original show's title... – Joe Mar 9 '18 at 11:40
• #11 isn't the intended answer and doesn't fit the clue too well, since rot13(ubbq) is pretty much the opposite of "suburban"... – DLosc Mar 29 '18 at 1:36

4 is probably

Saturday Night Hive

• ah, yes, it wasn't stated whose sabbath. – Jasen Mar 9 '18 at 7:22

11)

Charged (from Charmed)

(30 chars required)

• Nice! We're done now someone group them up like the previous thread I dont have time :D – L_Church Mar 9 '18 at 16:59
• Huh! This was not my intended answer, but it fits surprisingly well. One possible nitpick: does Charmed take place in the suburbs? Wikipedia says it's set in San Francisco. – DLosc Mar 9 '18 at 21:33

10)

Breaking Bab or Bae or Bay (Breaking Bad) (Bae from Peregrine Lennert)

• probably preferable since we don't want to call girls bags...? lol – L_Church Mar 9 '18 at 15:09
• @L_Church PL457's answer is based on "spill the beans" instead of girlfriend (which mine is). – jaxad0127 Mar 9 '18 at 15:46
• oh... whoops! whistle whistle – L_Church Mar 9 '18 at 15:57
• (SPOILER) bae maybe? (covering up most of the name) – Peregrine Lennert Mar 9 '18 at 17:21
• And that explains why I had so much trouble with this one - I'm way too old to call anyone "Bae" ... But great answer! – Pugmonkey Mar 9 '18 at 17:36

10) (far fetched)

Breaking Bag. / Breaking bad (It contains drugdealers and a broken bag is literally Spilling beans)

Is #11

Dewitched (not a word, AFAIK, though I learned many interesting facts about dew itch while googling it) -> Bewitched

?

Because Bewitched has a suburban setting and aired primarily in the 1960s (1964 - 1972).

• Yay! That's what I was looking for. (The titles don't have to be words per se--see also #2, #5, and #8.) – DLosc Mar 29 '18 at 3:39

I have a few alternative answers:

2):

Superstowe -> Superstore + Stowe Vermont

6)

America's Funniest Nome Videos -> America's Funniest Home Videos but in Nome, Alaska

8)

Sister Robot -> Mister Robot, but this time about Darlene

• Welcome to Puzzling SE! Hope you stay! – NL628 Mar 12 '18 at 1:33

8)

eye-robot(i-robot) evil society

• Are you sure you understood the question? Only one letter should be changed in the title of an existing tv show. – Jaap Scherphuis Mar 9 '18 at 9:41
