Great Nostalgia but somehow creepy
30 April 2005 | by thundrmiSee all my reviews

The Game Show Nework is now showing re-runs of this rarely-seen children's show, hosted by Match Game's Gene Rayburn. Unfortunately, GSN relegated these classic shows to the wee-hours of the morning, so you may have to stay up late or set your TIVO to catch it. The 1950's nostalgia makes it worthwhile- especially if you're a baby-boomer.

The premise is fairly simple. About 100 kids are invited to the studio to compete in stunts to win prizes. Half are designated Buckaroos and the other half Sky Captains. A Jovial (but you know he had to be less than thrilled, given his later career) Gene Rayburn leads the 8 to 12-year-olds on stunts that are dictated by a weird paper-mache character with rolling eyes and collagen-looking lips (you have to see it).

Some of the well-groomed kids look absolutely horrified, and the least coordinated often are assigned tasks that require balance, speed and finesse. Still, it's good-natured and offers a glimpse into an era long past.
