Series: I'm Telling!
Kids' Game Show that ran for the 1987-88 season on NBC Saturday mornings. Basically The Newlywed Game FOR KIDS!

Three pairs of siblings (one boy and one girl) answered questions about their siblings, each predicting the other's answers. After one round of the girls answering first (25, 50 and 75 points, respectively), followed by one round of the boys answering first (50, 75 and 150 points, respectively), the pair with the highest score received a $1,000 savings bond and got a chance to win up to 20 fabulous kids' prizes in a Bonus Round.

Game Show Tropes in use:

  • Bonus Round: The Pick-A-Prize Arcade. Twenty prizes were displayed, 10 each for boys and girls. Before the bonus round, the girl chose six boys' prizes she thought her brother wanted the most; the boy did the same thing with the girls' prizes. Then, the girl picked six girls' prizes, followed by the boy picking six boys' prizes. The siblings kept each prize they matched, and got all 20 prizes if they matched 10 prizes total (out of 12 picks). The setup of the round guaranteed that each sibling would win at least two prizes.
  • Double The Dollars: Close enough.
  • Personnel:
    • The Announcer: Dean Goss, best known as a San Francisco DJ. He was the announcer on High Rollers during this same season.
    • Game Show Host: Laurie Faso, a bit actor. This was most likely his best-known work, besides Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine.
