25 Cleveland Trivia Questions That You Probably Need Your Parents' Help To Answer

We recently stumbled on a box of Cleveland Trivia, made way back in 1985. The questions proved way harder than we would have expected.

There are, of course, timeless tidbits of Cleveland trivia (first stoplight, first electric streetcar, etc.) and some oddball things that some but not all would know (Paul Thomas Anderson is Ghoulardi's son, Bat Out of Hell was released by Cleveland International Records, which was mainly known for polka), and then there's a whole lakeload of stuff that was curious and memorable once and not so much as times go by and things like weather lines disappear. Some of them are just fun.

Here are 25 of our favorite questions from the box. Take some guesses, but just know your parents might need to help. Questions are on one slide and then the answers are on the next.
