    Accordion isn’t funny. 50 jocks IS funny. A tennis racket IS funny, Cuckoo, Friend and Ollie is wierd, but strangely funny. But WHY is Joyce Bulifant wearing that freakin’ red wig?

  5. BalletWatcher says:

    They don’t make shows like this anymore. Fun vs money. RIP Gene Rayburn, Charles Nelson Reilly, Brett Sommers ect.

    I don’t know the exact year of this episode, but I was 10 years old in 1977 and had been watching this for a few years. Even though I didn’t “get” the sexual puns in the questions at the time, I remember it just as you see it here. A very relaxed, fun show that when you look back at the 70′s, was completely in perfect form. Tattle Tales had some of this magic too, but for my money, the 70′s Match Game will always be the best game show EVER!

    Gene’s initial reaction is priceless. The absolutely stunned look on his face at what he just heard. Classic! Poor lady, she clearly doesn’t handle the pressure of being in the spotlight. Lots of people draw blanks or stupid answers when they are very nervous. What a great moment. You play it over and over and it just keeps on getting better and better!

    @DEATHEXISTFOREVER Cookun, Fran, and Ollie is what she meant, but she said “Cookoo Friend and Ollie”. I love how you found the accordian tie-in too, amazing.
