Storyline

Two teams compete in a super-advanced game of charades. The people playing the game move at seemingly impossible speed, solving long clues based on puns. An approximate example: Would a man who has two stains on his shirt from different pieces of chicken subscribe to the two pullet theory?" Imagine being able to solve this charade in under a minute. The show was popular in Canada in the mid-seventies, and featured Billy Van from Sonny and Cher, the Bobby Vinton Show, etc... Written by G Neal <heresmydemo@mindspring.com>

Charades done large -- and a slice of Toronto-ia
16 November 2005 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

This lost gem of Canadian TV was a half-hour show featuring a trio of Canuck (read: Toronto) 'celebrities' assembled as a crack team of charade-players who would then be challenged by a guest-team of 'local celebrities'. Hosted by another basically unknown local TV person, the show was set in a comfy rec-room-like studio set complete with orange shag rug, fake fireplace, and paintings on the wall. As a youthful watcher, I was constantly amazed and mystified at the swiftness with which the players could translate the challenging phrases into hand-gestures. The home team were killer charade-ists and sometimes received harder questions if the guest team were lame. The whole atmosphere of the show was meant to be fun and 'party'-like. Unfortunately the host was forced to don a conservative suit while yet trying to appear convivial and make jokes. He and always appeared somewhat uncomfortable amids the strained revelry. On the plus side, things were obviously unscripted and a certain risky spontaneity is evident -- in fact, many of David Letterman's famous revolutionary TV antics seem pre-dated by this show (not the least being the use of a breaking glasss sound effect whenever regular Billy Van would throw things around).
