Kids' Game Show from Saban Entertainment 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.


This show provides examples of:

  • Game Show Host: Laurie Faso, a bit actor. This was most likely his best-known work, besides Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine.
  • Nerd: Laurie's wardrobe included Urkel-esque suspenders and cheesy tweed sport coats. Combined with the horn-rims...
  • Nintendo Hard: Getting all 20 prizes in the Bonus Round. The kids had to match on 10 picks out of 12.
  • Non Standard Game Over: If a team was leading by more than 150 when it came time for the final question, Laurie would announce that there was no way they could be caught and declare them the winners right then and there. This happened at least once.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Well, Pink Girl, Yellow Boy: The layout of the Pick-a-Prize Arcade. Girls' prizes on the pink pedestals, boys' prizes on the yellow ones.
  • Rearrange the Song: A slightly re-arranged version of the theme would later turn up on Treasure Mall.
