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 ...

Trivia

It is interesting to note that in an ironic twist, given the show's flagrant messy and sloppy nature, host Marc Summers suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and lives a super-clean lifestyle. See more »

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.

Fun game show
4 May 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when I was a little girl. First off, I must say that it was a fun game show. Also, I'm not sure if I've seen every episode. However, I do remember the show very well. Every time I watched it, I had a lot of fun playing along and watching. This made me long to be a contestant. I hope the Nickelodeon Games and Sports Newtork keeps it on so I can keep watching and playing along. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch this show one day before it goes off the air for good.
