Storyline

Two teams of two children, ages 9 through 13, competed in this classic kiddie game show of questions and physical challenges. At the beginning of each show, the two teams (each with such names as "Wacky Wormheads" or "Slimy Superkids") competed in a physical challenge (described below). The winner of the physical challenge would gain control of the first round questions. Host Summers asked the question, to which the team could answer for $10 or "dare" (i.e., challenge) the opposing team to answer for $20. However, the opponents could "double dare" (ergo, challenge back) the original team to answer; the original team could then answer for $40 or complete a "physical challenge," an often messy stunt that had to be completed within 10, 15, 20, or 30 seconds. "Physical challenge" stunts could include one team member wrapping his/her partner in a giant "tortilla shell" and drop hot sauce on it; having to throw three balloons filled with fingerpaint at a target, while having to select from ...

Quotes

[explaining the rules to the contestants]
Host: I'm going to ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer or think the other team doesn't have a clue, you can dare them to answer it for double the dollars. But be careful, because they can always double-dare you back for four times the amount, and then you either have to answer that question or take the physical challenge.

Messy, slimy, gooey fun.
20 November 2009 | by (Wheeling, WV, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the earliest Nickelodeon game shows ever aired on TV, the show called "Double Dare" It is hosted by Marc Summers and announced by Harvey. Multiple versions of this show, makes the show even more fun. The only Double Dare show I watched as a kid was Double Dare 2000, (I was 7 at that time), as years go by, I started watching the original Double Dares to show how similar the other one is. The rules are simple and sometimes complex, either which team wins the beginning qualifier round, will get the money, and they will answer these questions, if they don't know the answer they've given, they can dare them for twice the amount, but if the other team double dares them back for 4 times the amount, they have to answer the question, or they can take a physical challenge, the challenges are 30 or 20 seconds long, if they succeed, they will get the money, however, if they do the challenge unsuccessfully, the other team takes the money, round 2 is nearly the same rules, but the money has been increased. In Double Dare 2000, in round 2, if they do the physical challenge, they would either take the "Triple Dare Challenge" to make things difficult. The prize was won if the team does it successfully. The final round of the Double Dares, is the Obstacle course, to make a messy routine, get slimed, and doing all this crazy stuff. In all 8 obstacles, there is a flag at the end, if they grab the flags, they will win prizes, if they reach the 8th obstacle and grabbed the last flag, they will win a vacation. The versions they had were Double Dare, Super Sloppy Double Dare, Family Double Dare, and Double Dare 2000.

All these versions of Double Dare are awesome, they are must see shows on Nickelodeon.

Double Dare gets 9 stars.
