What were the Sour Patch Kids originally named?  What percent of the vote did George Washington get in the first Presidential election? Ever heard of a cartoon called “The Robonic Stooges”? It’s Adam’s Fun Facts!

1. Sour Patch Kids were originally called Sour Group Kids. They changed “group” to “patch” in the early ’80s to capitalize on the popularity of Cabbage Patch Kids. (Wikipedia)

2. Sweden and Finland are tied for the longest Olympic winning streak. They’ve both won at least one medal at every Summer and Winter Olympics since 1908. The U.S. isn’t on that list because we boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow. (Wikipedia)

3. Human beings have explored less than 5% of the world’s oceans. (NOAA)

4. In the second presidential election, both parties picked George Washington as their nominee. He won the election with 100% of the vote. (Wikipedia)

5. There was a Saturday morning cartoon in 1977 and 1978 called “The Robonic Stooges” which featured the Three Stooges characters as bionic future crime fighters. (Wikipedia)
