One panelist told the truth, while the others told more-or-less convincing lies. Contestants tried to win points by deciding which panelist was telling the truth.

Memory from my youth
12 January 2007 | by bogiehead1See all my reviews

I actually saw a taping of this show when I was 14, on a trip with my parents and nephew to visit friends in L.A. We had visited Universal Studios that day, and at the exit to the park, they were handing out tix to game shows. They said they had tix to "Liar's Club," which happened to be my favorite show at the time. This was when a LOT of syndicated game shows were on the air, before "Wheel" and the new "Jeopardy!" My parents said OK, this is your favorite show, let's go. The guests were Buddy Hackett, Betty White, Larry Hovis, and David Letterman(when he still had a morning show on NBC, after "Today"). It was pretty cool, all I really remember was that at one point, they had a puppy, and the panel tried to pass it off as being something else(Buddy Hackett said it was a saxophone, even "blowing" into the puppy's tail as the reed piece). That is the best memory I have from that trip, and I will never forget it.
