Correct response: Who is Tinker Bell?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Tinker Bell is the fairy in J. M. Barrie’s series of works about Peter Pan.
Here at The Jeopardy! Fan, I think this is a great Final Jeopardy! clue. The reference to “mending the pots and kettles” a.k.a. “tinkering” is a perfect tease-out metric to point towards Tinker Bell.
Peter Pan is a favourite topic of the show’s writers as well; back in 2016, the fact that London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital has the rights to Peter Pan was the subject of a Final Jeopardy.
