Series: Game Show Moments Gone Bananas

Five hourlong specials aired by VH-1 from May 21 to June 18, 2005, consisting of Game Show footage from the FremantleMedia archives. During each show was a "Top 5" countdown, presented by such notables as Chuck Woolery and Ed McMahon.

Oh, you want us to list the games included? Sure, why not...

Released on DVD in September 2008 by BCI, then reissued in 2010 by Mill Creek Entertainment.

Game Show Tropes in use:


This show provides examples of:

  • Loads and Loads of Game Shows: A staggering 34 Fremantle-owned games are seen across the five episodes, some of which are their only face time in years...or at all (and especially when the specials reran on GSN).
  • Pilot: I'm With Stupid (hosted by Graham Norton), the ABC Match Game (hosted by Bert Convy), Puzzlers (hosted by Pat Sajak), and Showoffs (hosted by Larry Blyden).
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: Subject of a Top 5 countdown, which culminated in Rip Taylor showing his baldness on Super Password.
