Toga! The ‘Animal House’ movie quiz

Posted on September 5, 2019 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Despite being made for less than a frat house’s annual beer budget, the 1978 comedy Animal House was a big fat hit, launching numerous careers (John Belushi, director John Landis, writer Howard Ramis) and innumerable knock-offs – rowdy, boozy takes on college life free of rules, propriety, and any semblance of social justice.

In the end, the plucky underdogs (e.g., the loveable, drunken idiots) fight authority (actually, they throw up on him) and win out. Then again, they’re probably still paying off student loans.

One thought on “Toga! The ‘Animal House’ movie quiz

  1. The DKE house at Miami of Ohio was very similar to Animal House. We did not conform to the typical Fraternity at the time. I graduated in 1967. I still get a kick out of Animal House. It is a fun movie and anything but PC. Nothing high minded about it.
