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 »

Like all you others out there that were thankful when GSN brought the show back on the air for a brief run, I made it a point to make sure and get the VCR rolling to get episodes preserved, for who knows when it may ever come out on season DVD. And indeed, the show's moments were classic from the new cars to the dreaded zonks. It's a pity they weren't able to go a bit further back in time to the early to mid 60's when the show was really in full popularity...wondering if ABC preserved those tapes??? They didn't have very many game shows on at that time, and I've heard that one of the networks scrapped a lot of classic game shows from the vault before anyone could watch them again in reruns. If you're a Christian, you may remember the Christian comedy group Isaac Air Freight that started their album "Fun In The Son" with a brilliant parody of the show called "Let's Trade Your Salvation" where the gifts were the enticement against the Bible and Monty Hall became Monty Lucifer who was booed by the audience. It is hilarious but does give a great message.
