He also worked on two Goodson revivals for first-run syndication: ''The New Price Is Right'' with Doug Davidson (1994-95), and a revival of ''Series/MatchGame'' hosted by Michael Burger (1998-99). His longest-running show ended up being ''Series/ShoppingSpree'', a show he created for [[ABCFamily The Family Channel]]; unlike just about every other show he produced (which ended up being so good, [[ShortRunner they got canned after the networks found out they were on the air]]), this one lasted for two seasons.

** ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' may also qualify since Wolpert had his hand in the first few years of the current version as well as the 1994 syndicated version.

Wolpert's time at ''Price'' is most notable for the Showcase skits that debuted in 1974, where his fertile mind went to work on creating fairy tale parodies, film parodies, and stuff like Captain Klutz and the April Fool's Showcases. After leaving ''Price'', Wolpert started his own production company and became responsible for some of the most unconventional and experimental game shows on television. Thankfully, one of his most downright-ridiculous creations, ''[[http://www.usgameshows.net/x.php?show=DuelInTheDaytime&sort=0 Duel in the Daytime]]'' (essentially a MinigameGame with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvMDSBkyP7w an overly-medieval motif]]), didn't make it past the pilot stage.

He also worked on two Goodson revivals for first-run syndication: 1994's ''The New Price Is Right'' with Doug Davidson, and the 1998 revival of ''Series/MatchGame''. Unfortunately, both ended up being flops and ended in a year. His longest-running show ended up being ''ShoppingSpree'', a show he created for [[ABCFamily The Family Channel]]. Unlike just about every other show he produced (which ended up being so good, [[ShortRunner they got canned after the networks found out they were on the air]]), this one lasted for two seasons.
