Short-lived GameShow broadcast on Creator/{{ABC}} in 1985, created by MerrillHeatter of ''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.

The BonusRound was called the Blitz Bonanza. Here, the contestant spun a wheel to reveal up to four parts of the puzzle, and could take a fifth spin if he or she forfeited the prize package won in the main game. Solving the puzzle won a cash jackpot that started at $10,000.
!!GameShow Tropes in use:
* BonusRound
* GameShowWinningsCap: Contestants who made it to the Bonus Round four times retired undefeated.
* Personnel:
** TheAnnouncer: John Harlan.
** GameShowHost: Peter Marshall.
** StudioAudience
* ProgressiveJackpot: Winning the BonusRound earned the contestant a jackpot that started at $10,000 and increased by $5,000 (later $2,500) each time it wasn't won. The jackpot froze when it hit $25,000.
* ShowTheFolksAtHome: The number of words in a puzzle. Peter Marshall mucked it up in the pilot's first bonus round, but the contestant didn't get the clue.
!!This show provides examples of:
* OpeningNarration: "[Celebrities' names], all in the game that's just over their heads!" (''theme song singer sings "All-Star Blitz" three times'') "And here's the master of the Blitz Board, Peter Marshall!"
* SurrealThemeTune: For a while, the ThemeTune was remixed with some downright ''weird'' {{scatting}} ("[[ Hobba hum hobba heeba humba]]"). The only part that stayed throughout was the repeated "All-Star Blitz!" chant (which, as mentioned above, was used in the intro). The scat mix was apparently used for only one week.
