Storyline

When "Video Village" premiered in 1960, the show was broadcast from New York City, and Jack Narz was the host. Narz (who was the brother of game-show legend Tom Kennedy) had to drop out of the series in an attempt to save his marriage, since his wife at the time was living in California. Monty Hall took over as emcee, and ironically, production of the show soon shifted from New York to the CBS Television City complex in Hollywood. Although "Video Village" left the air in 1962, it is fondly remembered, especially by those viewers of the show who were children then. A board game version, manufactured by Milton Bradley, is a collector's item and copies surface on E-Bay from time-to-time. Written by Joseph

it was a great show
26 October 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Here in Australia it was a great hit. Firstly it was with adults (much funnier) but later with kids. I still recall the theme songs. It was compered by Danny Web and hostess Liz Harris. Harris was a joy and a great talent. She married Austrtalian iconic actor Leonard Teale. She was also Lisa in the classic kids show Adventure Island.The voice guy was Chris Christenson who died during the series. It was fun reading the previous post memories of this delightful show. I wonder if it would work today? Come ride with us on the village bus it takes all shapes and sizes

ah sweet memories.
