Short-lived GameShow broadcast on Creator/{{ABC}} in 1985, created by Creator/MerrillHeatter of ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' fame. Like that show, ''All-Star Blitz'' involved celebrities and a puzzle board. Four celebrity panelists sat under three stars each, and gameplay involved asking trivia questions of the celebs. Just like the ''Squares'', contestants could agree or disagree with the answers the celebs gave. Right answers lit up the stars over the celebs' head, and as the stars lit up, they also revealed portions of a word puzzle that comprised two to six words, which the contestants could opt to solve. Two puzzles won the game, a prize package and the right to play the ''Blitz Bonanza'' [[BonusRound endgame]].

Added DiffLines:

* FanRemake: Done by Creator/{{Greggo}} and taken to conventions, frequently with anime stars; the format is the "four free stars" one, the Blitz Bonanza is randomized on the computer and stopped with a buzzer device (no budget or ability to haul a big wheel around), and all the payouts are in yen (as per most of his shows), with a prize for the Blitz Bonanza.
