(might need to raise volume at around the 15 minute mark) (uploader worked in the show's Audio department during it's time in the WHYY Studios in Philadelphia)

This is so cool. Even watching the actual episode as aired, you can tell there was a jump cut during the first question in Round 2, by listening closely to the audio.

Also, the production code seems to indicate that HH is taping session #34, and that there may have been 136 episodes of Double Dare taped before the weekly Super Sloppy run came out. Assuming this is correct, the first daily season on Nickelodeon is A-R, and the second one was S-HH. On streaming services, this is the last show before the Syndicated ones start, though it is listed as episode 128.

Typically, a taping session consisted of multiple episodes (usually, four) with a virtually identical obstacle course lineup.

he also has a behind the scenes walkaround of the Obstacle Course from the The Dare Devils vs The MC's episode and is planning on doing more on Double Dare (as well as Finders Keepers which also taped in Philly)

Don't forget, the first season of Think Fast was also held at WHYY Studios in Philadelphia.

Assuming this is correct, the first daily season on Nickelodeon is A-R, and the second one was S-HH. On streaming services, this is the last show before the Syndicated ones start, though it is listed as episode 128.

The production codes went from A-T in the first 70 episodes. Awhile back when the episodes popped up on Amazon I was skimming through all of them keeping notes. Fortunately some of the episodes were listed with their production numbers and made it easier to keep track. 70 episodes for the first season and 66 for the second. 130 syndicated episodes.

It appears that Viacom is missing 16 episodes of the original run of the show. Since their episode count goes up to 250 instead of 266. Eight in the first two seasons and eight from the syndicated season. Explains why episode 136 is listed as 128.

Four other episodes from the first season (25G, 43M, 59Q, and 63R) are not included online streaming or were apart of the GaS rotation but are accounted for in the overall count of 250. Episode 63R Goobers vs. Raisinettes does feature a bit were they flashed the home address of the contestant coordinator on screen during the course rundown. Probably explains why that episode is being skipped. A similar thing happened during a Family Double Dare episode years later and that one was also skipped on GaS.
