    I’m a Wink Martindale fan since I was 5 years old! I will always enjoy the original Tic Tac Dough he hosted! Plus the music totally rocked! I also loved the dragon!

  2. Sodiumreactor says:

    Wink Martindale!! Yeah. This was one of the only shows I could watch as a kid, as we only got three channels off the antennae. This, and Family Feud. Watched this show every night!

    These questions are sooo easy….

    I wonder who was the highest TTD winner for the women?

    Looks like Sandy did make a false move, and it cost her.

    In Detroit, about when WJBK tv 2 CBS got the show, during the 1979-80 season, in The fall was on in the morning at 9am until January it moved to nights especially Thom McKee’s episodes. The season ended during McKee’s reign. Did WJBK still have TTD into the 1980-81 season and moved it to 4pm (the only open time that I know) in that season from evenings when the new version of LMAD kicked in?

    @KieferSkunk Indeed, relatively easy to program I would think as well. You have a deal, I’m no Wink, but I’ve got the charisma I like to think.

  9. KieferSkunk says:

    @TheIdentCritic – Why would I want to ignore you just because you’re British? =) I would probably use a modern computer system to run the board, since that would make things pretty simple to set up, but I’d preserve the graphics and sounds from the original show. That should be more than easy enough to do. =)

    I’ll take your word for it on being the host. I’d want to be the guy running the computers, personally.

  10. TheIdentCritic says:

    @KieferSkunk I’m a Brit so feel free to ignore my comments :3. I’d keep the format the same, and use computer screens like you suggested, what computer would be used is the question. As for hosting, I’d probably throw myself in the ring,.

    Heard that this soundstage is now used for Hell’s Kitchen

    I remember this show vividly.
    I used to watch it all the time as a child.
    Great to see it again. Seems like only five minutes.

    Any young people out there take note. You’re always asking what people used to do before computers came along. Your answer is hidden in these show openings. Here you have bird watching and bell ringing (see Google).

    Tic Tac Dough and Hollywood Squares are both Nine Square Game Shows but the rules on both shows are played differently.

  17. conradragzoff says:

    I always thought about those poor monitors… I’m surprised they didn’t get burned in with big Xs and Os from constant displaying… and Wink, of course… you can’t mess with him!

  18. gfalcon says:

    I think that the graphics that appears in the boxes at 0:20 would make an awesome screen saver.

  19. essentialeugene says:

    “Tic Tac Dough” is similar to “Hollywood Squares.”

  20. ncatina says:

    “the background behind the contestants looked like breakfast cereal “….I thought the exact same thing.

  21. altfactor says:

    The theme music from the 1978-85 “Tic Tac Dough” is still the coolest game show theme music ever.

  22. bigweezey says:

    This game show sucked. Wink is a good host but I could care less about this. The better version o9f the show was hollywood squares with Tom Bergeron. John Davidson was the first tho and Davidson sucked on pyramid.

  23. mooky9669 says:

    I used to watch this when it was rerun on USA Network

  24. KieferSkunk says:

    When I was a kid and watched this show, I kept thinking that the background behind the contestants looked like breakfast cereal and that the board with the dragon on it was the coolest thing ever. I’m still a little mystified by the limited technology they must have had available at the time. I was given to understand each monitor had an Apple II behind it, but if so, the computers were clearly networked.

  25. KieferSkunk says:

    Just out of curiosity, would you bring it back in its original form or a more modern format? Personally, I’d keep the original format, complete with old, low-res computer screens – that was what really made this show for me. :)
