Sunday’s Trivia Question
In Monquista you meet up with a character named Donkey Hotay.
Hotay is based on a famous character.
Name the character and where he comes from.
There are two possible answers to this question.
We’ll accept either of them.
You must provide both the name and source! If you simply share the name,
that will not be accepted as a valid answer.
From the novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha”.
The novel follows the adventures of Alonso Quijano, a hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthly wit in dealing with Don Quixote’s rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood. (Wikipedea)
Many movies have been made from the novel, including this one pictured here which starred John Lithgow as Quixote and Bob Hoskins as Sancho. “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” is a planned feature film by director Terry Gilliam, which is planned to include Johnny Depp in the role of Sancho Panza.
We accepted answers with Don Quixote from “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha” or “The Man From La Mancha” or the novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
In Pirate101 Donkey Hotay stands beside his trusted squire Pancho Stanza on La Mancha island.
If you’re a little older like me, you may have thought of another famous character besides Don Quixote. So we accepted that answer too.
Fans of Mr. Rogers might remember Donkey Hodie from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe!
A soporific but fun donkey who lives in Someplace Else with Harriet Elizabeth Cow and operates a Washer Dryer Sorter Dumper there.
Donkey Hodie, originally came to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to build a windmill, but King Friday didn’t like having it so close to the castle. Donkey relocated to Someplace Else. While Donkey made several appearances in the original series, he only made very few appearances in the modern series.
His name of course is also a pun on Don Quixote. (Wikipedea)
We accepted answers Donkey Hodie from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood as well as the original source Don Quixote.
