This show is entirely comprised of footage from the popular and long running Japanese game show Takeshi's Castle (1986), except the original dialog has been dubbed over in English and altered in humorous ways.
Nearly every episode introduces one of the contestants as having the last name Babaganosh (pronounced: babagenoosh). The name comes from an Indian dish called "baba ghanouj", which is made mostly from pureed eggplants.
Takeshi's Castle (1986) involves not teams, but all 100 contestants trying to get past the challenges, thus the numbers sometimes listed in Japanese on the bottom of the screen. The golden tank "Kenny" and "Vic" are sometimes seen in during final segments is part of "Takeshi's Castle"'s extremely difficult endgame, in which contestants who survive all the challenges try to defeat Takeshi and his minions in a motorized tank battle.
