Ten years ago Wednesday, on July 19, 2007, America’s favorite fictional ad executive made his debut on TV when Mad Men aired its pilot episode. With Matthew Weiner’s modern-classic historical drama series, AMC took its first step towards being an original content powerhouse and Jon Hamm made his first appearance in the role that would make him a household name.

The first episode, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” introduces all the major players of Sterling Cooper ad agency and shows Don Draper at the top of his game (his game being a combination of writing ads, drinking hard liquor, and womanizing). A decade later, test your memory of the first episode of Mad Men with our quiz, below.
