Trivial Pursuit was licenced to Selchow and Righter a major U.S. game manufacturer and distributor in 1983.

In December 1993, Trivial Pursuit was named to the 'Games Hall of Fame' by Games magazine.
Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were.The first man was an Engineer, the second man was an Accountant, the third man was a Chemist and the fourth man was a Government employee.
To show off, the Engineer called his cat, "T-square, do your stuff." T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly drew a circle, a square and a triangle.
Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.
But the chemist said his cat do better. He called his cat and said, "Measure, do your stuff." Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 8 ounces into the glass without spilling a drop.
Everyone agreed that was pretty good.
Then the three men turned to Government employee and said, "What can your cat do?" The Government employee called his cat and said, "CoffeeBreak, do your stuff." CoffeeBreak jumped to his feet .....
drank the milk .....
