    Still means nothing. Is this a well known game/puzzle?

    They are film/TV/cartoon characters, represented as bar charts. The bars reflect the character's colours and relative size. Hence, for the answer given above for no.4, one bar is TinTin, the other is Snowy the dog.

    Strangely enough Alan that's what I thought. Means nothing to me at all and still doesn't after the explanation.
    Maybe I need to watch TV more 😁

    Yes, thanks for posting this, Triple+1 H. Some light-hearted distraction, and my eldest daughter was surprisingly quick at it. My wife on the other hand didn't get it at all !
