Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 or 3. Before the contestant could decide, Monty would tempt them with something from within a small box, or flash cash in front of them. It was the contestant's chance to win something big, but deep down, they knew they might get "zonked" by choosing the wrong curtain. Some contestants actually ended up with a donkey or pig, or other rotten prize, and some actually came out with cars, cash or jewelry. Near the end of every show, Monty would give out cash prizes to anyone carrying whatever it was he asked for. You should see some of the strange things people carry! Written by

When the show first aired, the contestants wore normal everyday business attire. Monty Hall recalls that during one of the early airings, a contestant came dressed as a chicken, and he picked her. A few days later, someone else wore an outlandish costume and once again he picked her. The rest, as they say, is history. See more »

The Game Show Network has recently started airing old reruns of Let's Make a Deal. I'm really enjoying seeing it again. Monty Hall really knows how to work an audience. But my favorite feature of the show has to be the "zonk" (when a person trades in a known prize for an unknown one behind a door or curtain, and it turns out to be a gag gift, such as a farm animal). Everything, from the theme song, to the announcer Jay Stewart, to the prize model Carol Merrill, brings back nice memories.
