 Contestant (1 episode, 1985)


Two contestants competed in this short-lived syndicated game show of puns and rebuses. A toss-up puzzle (aka the "Catch Phrase") was drawn; the first to guess the puzzle revealed one piece of a "Super Catch Phrase" puzzle, either a rebus or pun. The contestant may either guess the puzzle or play another toss-up. Each toss-up added cash (either $50 or $100) to a pot, and the contestant who guessed the "Super Catch Phrase" won the pot. The contestant who had the most cash after time expired was champion and played the bonus round. In the bonus round, the contestant faced a board of 25 lettered squares, each containing its own Catch Phrase-style rebus or pun. The contestant won $200 per correct guess, and getting five squares in a row (either up, down or diagonally) won a bonus prize package, with the best prize packages for those who complete a diagonal row.

Good Game Show/Bad Comupter Graphics
25 March 2005 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

The show was great although I never saw the opening to the show. However, their computer graphics were yucky. I didn't like the set or the idea that the money from solved catch phrases goes into a pot. For after seeing a clip from the UK Catch Phrase, it best to pay the contestants the value of the Catch Phrase rather than put it in the pot. Originally I wanted to have a pot be like the UK version, but someone told me once to just let the person who solve the Super Catch Phrase to keep the money solved Catch Phrases. That is which is a good idea nonetheless. Other than that it was a good show, and the bonus game was awesome.

I give it a 6/10 & 3 Stars (***)
