Got into this discussion with a buddy last night and thought I'd bring it up here...
Who here is old enough to have watched lots of TV game shows back in the 70s and 80s? My memories are of the sexual innuendo and general insanity of the Match Game (Actress Kirstie Alley and former NFL coach Brian Billick were contestants before they were famous), not to mention Gene Rayburn's REALLY long skinny microphone. Or how about Jack Barry on The Jokers Wild, Wink Martindale on Tic Tac Dough, Jim Perry on Card Sharks, Dick Clark on The $10,000 Pyramid, Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford on Wheel of Fortune (yep, Pat and Vanna weren't first), or a young Alex Trebek on High Rollers?
Remember when that military guy in uniform, with the blonde mustache, was the Tic Tac Dough champion for weeks on end? I always wondered if he was being fed he answers.
I'm sure there are lots of shows I'm leaving out. What do you remember?
