Storyline

Television's first treatment of "Charades" as played by Hollywood celebrities. The giveaway was the use of gestures that defined "film", "TV show", "book" or "song" as well as "small word (a, an, the)"and gestures for syllables, number of words, and expand or stretch . I remember later as I grew up that "Charades" used these gestures from the show I remembered in my youth as "Stump the Stars." Written by Andrew Melisano

an all star episode
24 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just viewed an episode of Stump the Stars (all star challenge) where the Dick Van Dyke Show members played against four of the STS regulars. It was included as a bonus track** with the 5-disc DVD set - THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW - SEASON 2. Regarding the comment made above... apparently - since I just watched an episode, AND since at the ending credits was written "THIS PROGRAM WAS PREVIOUSLY RECORDED," I'd say that there is a good chance that more episodes are archived... somewhere. It was quite enjoyable... much more interesting than the "quiz" shows of today!!

** Nowhere on the packaging (or disc label) does it state that this bonus track exists!! - - It's a secret... shuuuuu - - disc 5 !!
