Video Game: The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary
The Secret Island of Dr. Quandary is an Edutainment Game produced in 1993 by MECC, the same brains behind The Oregon Trail, Odell Down Under, and the Number Munchers series.

The player character attends a carnival, plays a shooting game hosted by the Quintessential Quizmaster Dr. Quandary, and wins a "Lifelike Action Figure". But upon claiming their prize, the player's soul is transferred into the doll, which is whisked away to Dr. Quandary's private island. The only way to escape is to solve Dr. Quandary's quandaries and find the ingredients for his Fixer Elixer!
