Quiz Description

One of the categories in the January 5, 2015 episode of Jeopardy! is "STRIKE THAT!", where you have to replace the crossed-out word or words in each of their clues, as inspired by the cult-classic game show "Whew!" which ran from 1979-80. Let's see if you correct those "bloopers" by replacing the capitalized words or phrases in each of the following. You have to be specific, at least, and spelling counts.
