Daily Trivia – 6/13/11

Question: What was the password/computer’s name in WarGames?

Last Question: On Charles in Charge, what character did Willie Aames play?

Answer: Buddy Lembeck

Willie Aames played Tommy Bradford in Eight is Enough from 1977 to 1981. Then he began acting in movies, such as Zapped!. He made his return to television in Charles in Charge by playing the goof Buddy Lembeck. Buddy was the best friend of Charles (played by Zapped! costar Scott Baio). The show was first aired on CBS from October 3, 1984 to April 3, 1985.

It was cancelled due to poor ratings. Then it was brought back, and had a more successful first-run syndication run from January 3, 1987 to November 10, 1990.

Aames struggled with drugs and alcohol for over twenty years. Then he became a born-again Christian and an ordained minister. From 1995 to 2004, he starred in a video series and annual touring performances as the Christian superhero Bibleman. The live show has been described as falling between “a high budget Sunday school pageant, a Batman movie, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
