''Skedaddle'' (1988) was a children's GameShow produced by Creator/HannaBarbera and Jay Wolpert, played in an AbsurdlySpaciousSewer, for a six-week span during the "FUN-Tastic World of Hanna-Barbera" block of programming. Two teams of four kids competed in a HotPotato-like game in an attempt to win prizes and avoid being CoveredInGunge. It was hosted by a very young Ron Pearson, who would later host the Family Channel's ''Shopping Spree'' (also a Wolpert production) and become a famous comedian and juggler.

One at a time, a team would select one of the three "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc4M8TI26mE Down and Dirty Dinosaurs]]" (Slam, Dunk, or Seymour), who would then come out of his lair with some object that the kids had to toss back and forth to each other as they were answering the question that went with it. After the object had been passed enough times, someone on the team then had to race to the center of the studio and honk a bicycle horn. Getting a correct answer within the time limit earned that team points. However, giving a wrong answer, running out of time, or throwing the object out of bounds resulted in the team being slimed by some substance from one of the "businesses above ground" (the "ice cream parlor", for example, dumped melted ice cream all over the contestants).

!!GameShow Tropes in use:
* BonusRound: The winning contestants, one at a time, would answer trivia questions with one correct answer out of three. Each dinosaur held a bucket representing a possible answer; the kid had to sit under the bucket he thought held the right one and would thus be empty; a wrong answer resulted in that player getting the standard "green slime" treatment.
