Trivia

Every team beat every other team there was in the moat, Steps of Knowledge, and Temple games. The only exception is the Purple Parrots never beating the Orange Iguanas in the temple games. There were a few times when they were close to doing this. See more »

Goofs

One episode in the second season consisted of a different layout of the temple throughout three-quarters of the show. When the temple run is shown, the layout of the temple completely changed. Not only that, the artifact was spotted in the wrong location before the temple run began. Originally, the artifact was not seen when Olmec announced where it is. See more »

Quotes

Host: [referring to the center of the Temple] The center of the room.

Crazy Credits

In the first season, for the "announcer" credit, both Olmec and Dee Baker (who voiced Olmec) are listed as announcers. Later on, Dee Baker is the only one credited, but his role reads "Announcer/Olmec." See more »

My childhood dream
14 December 2002 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show when I was young, and for years all I ever wanted was to be on it. Sadly, no such luck.

This was a fun show that kept me and a million other kids coming back every week. I'm afraid I'll have to correct a previous reviewer that this show consisted of six teams and four rounds, not four and three. To trim the fat down to four, the teams had to cross a "moat" using some cleverly named "ancient" apparatus. Once across, four teams would listen to a giant stone head tell them a "legend" (normally a story from history, occassionally mythology), and answer questions on it. The crux of the game was an object from the "legend" placed in the temple. After that, the two remaining teams would do battle against one another to enter the temple. Prizes were won if the team retrieved the object.

Whenever I flip around and see reruns of this, I smile and remember my younger days. While this show of course won't have such meaning for anyone else who today watches it, it's always fun to suspend reality and root along something that happened 5-10 years ago. This show would still work if it were produced today (the target audience wouldn't care about repetition) just as it did then. A nostalgic show for me, a nice time for virtually anyone.
