The good old days of Nickelodeon!
24 December 2000 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid I loved watching the old shows on Nick, like 'You Can't Do That on Television' and 'Today's Special'....and 'Finder's Keepers'. My best friend and I used to hide things in my room and when we gave each other clues, we'd time each other to find the items while we ransacked my room. We threw stuff everywhere! Ahh, memories of childhood.

On FK, the object of the game was to ransack different rooms and find certain objects based on clues. Rooms included beach houses, junk yards, bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens, every kind of room. The props made the show exciting, players would have to go through pools of slime and boxes of junk to find the specific item.

However short-lived, FK is a representation of the funny kid game shows of the past. Forget about 'Figure It Out'.
