Buzzr Lost & Found January 21
« on: January 09, 2023, 02:14:26 PM »
Here's what Buzzr has uncovered for this edition of Lost & Found, with all times Eastern:

11 AM - Winner Take All (circa 1950). This was Goodson-Todman's first TV venture and was the first game/quiz to use lockout buzzers.

11:40 - It's News To Me (circa 1952). With John Daly. A celebrity panel uses visual clues to supply the story to news events.

12:20 - Choose Up Sides (1956). A kids' game show  with Gene Rayburn and the voice of Don Pardo as "Mr. Mischief."

1 PM - Strike It Rich. According to the on-screen schedule from Comcast, this was the 1986 Joe Garagiola edition.

1:30 - Double Dare. The G-T edition with Alex Trebek.

3 PM - Make The Connection  (1955). With Gene Rayburn. A celebrity panel tried to determine the connection between two guests.

3:40 - Play For Keeps! (1955). Unsold pilot. Returning champions decide whether to leave with what they've won or risk some of their winnings against an opponent. Sonny Fox hosts.

4:20 - Play Your Hunch (circa 1960). Merv Griffin hosts. Is the correct answer to a situation X, Y or Z? Intuition is the key factor.

5:30 - Beat The Clock. Bud Collyer and his couples and stunts.

7 PM - To Tell The Truth. Bud Collyer edition.

7:30 - Star Words (1983). Unsold pilot for CBS with Nipsey Russell from 1983. Think Password meets Tattletales. It was intended to replace Child's Play at 10:30 AM ET but the green light was given to Press Your Luck.

8:30 - On A Roll (1986). Unsold pilot, possibly for CBS. Contestants use dice to fill out a word puzzle. David Sparks hosts.

Errata...
1. pretty sure the Choose Up Sides episode is the pilot (given that it's from 1953), with Bob Kennedy as host.
2. the Beat the Clock shows are actually from Gene Wood's run as host.
3. To Tell The Truth is from the Robin Ward season.

Also of note...
1. Each 2-hour block is seen each weekday from January 16 to 20, from 4pm to 6pm. (Winner Take All/It's News to Me/Choose Up Sides on Monday, Strike it Rich/Double Dare on Tuesday, etc.)
2. the Double Dare shows, are the three pilot episodes.

Ah, thanks for clarifying. Comcast's on screen schedule wasn't very succinct.

I'm especially looking forward to those rare early 1950s shows on Wednesday, as well as the Double Dare '76 pilots on Tuesday along with the Wednesday shows and the Friday pilots. BUZZR previously aired the first pilots of Play For Keeps, Star Words and On A Roll on previous Lost & Found specials, and  Those Beat The Clock episodes were last seen in the late '90s on GSN's weekend schedule, and I still can't get over how so many of the credits read "Boss" on that version. That Strike It Rich episode, presuming its the premiere, is hardly lost and found; both an original broadcast copy and the Amazon Prime copy exist on the trading circuit. Interestingly, I found an original broadcast copy in 2019 of a Strike It Rich '86 episode off of KDKA, when it graveyard it and every other commercial was for Lee Press-On Nails!
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

5:00pm - Beat the Clock 72_0013

Any idea on who the celebrity was this particular week? Also, based on production number, would I also be correct in presuming this was the first (produced) week of the 1972-1973 season with Gene Wood?

Those 2 and the Body Language pilot all used "Working Girl March" from the movie "Tootsie" as the opening theme.

I have not finish watching everything but have on on my DVR ( I record in bulk using 2 extra hours after when I can while still being careful to make sure it is under 3 hours (my DVR fritters longer than that).) the Double Dare episode choice was amazing. make the connection and play for keeps is great. Play for keeps had some okay points I am wondering who wrote for the show since these were the strangers questions with nylons and moustaches being a subject (I missed a chunk of the episode but I am looking forward to re-watching it). it seems like a rip off of to tell the truth. Star Words episodes was amazing. playing for keeps had some there is so much foreshadowing that they do not even realise they did. I am going to stop here because I think I could write a paper just on this episode alone (partially because I basically have on this for college.). I have spent the majority of the time debating where to go with this. I will rewatch areas of this episode because I was too busy laughing.

I know this is way too long tried to fix this what what times but this was originally the intro for the first post.

This was a very interesting collection (in a good way) I really want to see It's News To Me the most but it I am not up to that yet in the recording. winner takes all was something else, it was funny in parts but it took me a bit to figure out how it was a game show with the add on musicals performance aspect. it was enjoyable in the end but does anyone know why one of the top corners is blocked off like completely cut off 95 percent of the time in a smoothly rounded fashion. still trying to figure out what Station break is particularly the part that made it sound like people would not come back. I thought it was because certain stations deciding to drop coverage halfway through the episode without plans on ever going back to the episode like a interrupted broadcast today (something we have seen quite a few times during Covid with the price is right). i have watched quite a few older game shows from before the 1970s and never heard this phrase ever. Love that Limerick Contest (Love to see the rest of the entries but that is asking for too much from the vault) and the gameplay was enjoyable. The final line "I fixed this game" good one. The person who did the sketches is a decent stick figures drawer.

I see that the person who made this list thank you very much from everyone by the way listed as 1950. is it 1950 the year or the decade 1950s. Anyhow great way to start it off. (I will not be grading every show this long but but have more questions than answers particularly with the station break thing.)

it was enjoyable in the end but does anyone know why one of the top corners is blocked off like completely cut off 95 percent of the time in a smoothly rounded fashion.

That's a byproduct of the old bulky studio cameras. The lens they used causes the curved corners. On top of that is the fact it's a film recording, so the image is by captured by shooting a TV monitor while show was happening live. The monitor it self is also curved, so it's creates an sightly warped image.

still trying to figure out what Station break is particularly the part that made it sound like people would not come back. I thought it was because certain stations deciding to drop coverage halfway through the episode without plans on ever going back to the episode like a interrupted broadcast today (something we have seen quite a few times during Covid with the price is right). i have watched quite a few older game shows from before the 1970s and never heard this phrase ever.

The show aired at an oddball time at 2:45 instead of the more standard half-hour block. The station break at around 15 minutes into the show matches up to the top of the hour. So instead of just a commercial they also showed an CBS ID card. Which lets the viewers know they're still watching CBS.

The final line "I fixed this game" good one.

I remember watching this same episode years ago and Gray's line at the end made me snicker a bit. Within a few years that line would never fly.
