Premiering this fall on Kartoon Channel, KC! Pop Quiz is Genius Brands’ pop culture-based game show for kids ages 6 and up. 140 11-minute episodes will follow two middle-grade kids as they compete head-to-head, answering questions correctly to earn points that are redeemable at the end of the game for various prizes. Similar to Jeopardy, the winner will return to play again in the next game.
Simpson will test kids’ knowledge on questions pertaining to pop culture, such as music, movies, social media, sports, toys, and gaming. The show will also feature general knowledge questions in categories ranging from geography and history to science and technology. The game is composed of three rounds: think fast, think harder, and infinity question.

The think-fast round features four 50/50 style questions (such as true or false questions and yes or no questions) that are worth 100 points each. The second round, think harder, contains three multiple-choice questions with four possible answers, each worth 200 points. The last round features a fill-in-the-blank infinity question, named for its infinite number of possible answers — worth 1,000 points.
At the end of the game, contestants will visit the KC! Prize Room of Dreams, where they will choose from a virtual prize pyramid displaying items such as laptop computers, video game players, a chocolate fountain, and a giant gummy worm. No contestant goes home empty-handed!
