[HOST] So you can choose the mystery box or what’s behind door number one.
[CONTESTANT] [clearly confused] Well, considering this is The Dating Game, I’ll go with door number one. [pauses] Although, my last date came in a box that size and I was not disappointed.

[ANNOUNCER] Yoshi, you’re the next contestant on..

      1. Ah, Mr Pop was great. One of those ones here you have to make a face before the face ‘pops’ forward and flings all the prices back at you.
        An early Pie Face game (with less mess) if you will 😁

        Yes, Hangman would have been the same. I remember we had a plastic version with little letter tiles that you would turn to face the person if they guessed it right and a little knob to turn to show how close they were to getting ‘hung’ if they got it wrong. Bloody loved that game!

      2. No chance that would get by censors now. Although some of the children’s programs open to all ages are ridiculous. My kids were watching a film, brain hungry zombies and a demon which eats people’s souls and I was rated for all ages.😈
        I miss the 80s. I’m guessing the guy on the box was smiling. That’s how happy it was then πŸ˜‚πŸ’š

      3. I remember that! Never played or owned it though.
        I guess the hangman premise is the same. I was thinking pencil and paper style.
        To actually have a noose and doll, that’s an intense image for kids. I LOVE IT! πŸ˜‚πŸ’š
