"Don't Be Surprised . . .
15 May 2004 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

. . . if someone, somewhere comes up to you and says: SMILE, you're on Candid Camera!"

Is it possible that this longest-running show in tv history celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1996? As of this writing, the show's up for its 60th in just a couple of years.

The original reality-tv show, this one's been offering its good-natured fun for generations. It's extremely positive, delightfully entertaining, and awesomely creative. Imagine coming up with a host of different gag set-ups every week. No wonder they've taken to soliciting ideas from viewers.

Alan Funt carried the show along brilliantly through decades, passing the torch to son Peter, who's obvisously inherited dad's penchant for good-natured humor. In 2000 Dina Eastwood (Clint's real-life wife) became co-host, and the two (as of 2004) are merrily carrying forth each week.

I find myself taping each show, and playing it back various times during the week, just for smiles, chuckles and laughs. What a wonderful, warm, show it is! What good sports people are as their leg's being pulled. And what fun it is when they're told they're "on camera."

This has to be one of my favorite tv show of all time. Bravo, "Candid Camera!" May you continue forever!
