Dubbed as "the show that goes anywhere and does anything to find kids having fun", this Nickelodeon Game Show
(term used loosely) from The '90s
featured teams of kids playing games ranging from summer camp-style contests to different takes on sports; several episodes also took place at amusement parks or water parks. The games were played strictly for fun with whatever kids they could round up for the day, including locals, members of boys' and girls' clubs, and sometimes even the cast and/or crew's own family members; no prizes were awarded, hence no apparent need for "eligibility requirements". The show was created and executive produced by Woody Fraser, who would later go on to create and executive produce another series for Nickelodeon, What Would You Do? (Nickelodeon)
. The show was produced by Woody Fraser Productions and Nickelodeon alongside Reeves Entertainment Group, a production company owned at the time by Thames Television
Revived in 2002 for a brief period, with episode names all containing "WACK". This time, Valencia Entertainment International replaced Reeves Entertainment Group as a production partner, as REG's former parent company, Thames Television, had gone bankrupt in 1992, and was bought out by Fremantle Media
- Covered in Gunge: Many of the games (it was Nickelodeon after all), especially toward the end of the run, when it was officially named "blap".
- Game Show Host: Annette Chavez (later replaced by Jessica Gaynes), Omar Gooding, and Donnie Jeffcoat on the original. Mati Moralejo hosted the revival.
- Home Game: Inverted; several games were "human" versions of board or video games, such as Battleship (with navy beans dropped onto "hit" contestants) and Space Invaders (with water balloons as ammo).
