Fun Show !
I enjoyed watching this one and this show marked to very first time Spelling Bee was played and it is one of my all-time favorites !
There were lots of fun moment from this show, Martin was a hilarious contestant and Bob and the girls got a kick out of him during the closing credits.
And Bob had a little fun w/ Greta in Race Game and he noticed a picture that Greta had of her boyfriend and Bob goes "Aww, look at the sweet things written on the back" and a man off stage goes "Read it !" and Bob replies" I am", he didn't. Bob also said that Greta's 11 second Race Game win was a new record and of course, records are made to be broken.
I can't even begin to explain the Add Em' Up game, my Uncle and I were watching this show and when it got to the Add Em' Up game, we were looking at each other like "What? Huh?" but shortly after this show, Add Em' Up was scrapped and the display number panel above the Car was used for Pathfinder, a more successful and more understanding game.
It was very nice to see the Train Depot on this show, always fun to see that one.
But I have to say, I was not familiar w/ the cue that was used for the train depot presentation on this show, I've never heard it before and when I heard it beginning of that cue, I certainly didn't think it'll be the train depot but SURPRISE it was !
Also at this point, the steam was added to the TPiR Train for the bids and in the showcase which made it even more fun to watch in my opinion !
Rod's announcer skit showcase was fun to watch as well and this clip can actually be found on youtube and the funniest part was at the end when Rod flubs on his very own name as Bob goes "You've forgotten your own name !" and he and Bob had a good laugh on that one !
Fabulous Show and it goes in my book of all-time favorites !
