Storyline

This show almost defies description. Each week, three teams (each representing a particular USA town, and consisting solely of members from the town) compete for money and prizes. The competitions vary from week to week, and include bizarre obstacle courses, pie throwing contests, swing relays, and other humorous, crazy contests. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

The revival of this show is long overdue!
3 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm glad to see that someone besides me remembers this hilarious show! I used to watch it when it ran on Saturday nights back in 1976 (I was 19 at the time) and I wouldn't have missed it for the world! Too bad this show went off the air before the invention of the VCR. After all of the vulgarity and filth that is so prevalent in television today, Almost Anything Goes would be like a breath of fresh air for audiences of all ages; clean enough for children to enjoy and competitive and funny enough to entertain adult audiences. It would be great if a channel like ABC Family picked up this ball again and ran with it.

Each game had a funny name. One of my favorites was "Hop-Along Kong." Each contestant had to dress in a full gorilla suit, crash through a giant gate, stomp into the sand all of the action figure "natives" in the village, swing on a vine across an above-ground swimming pool (representing the ocean between Skull Island and America, and if they fell into the pool, had to climb out of the water and try it again until they made it across on the vine), jump from the stage in a model of the Radio City Music Hall, grab the Fay Wray doll, climb the model of the Empire State Building and set the Fay Wray doll down on the top level, then knock down all of the fighter planes revolving on a mobile attached to the top of the building model. Each contestant had to try to beat the previous contestant's time.

I hope someone somewhere will get the idea to revive this show. Good clean fun is always welcome on my television screen!
