I was a major fan back in the day. And it remains the very best youth game show of all time (although Legends of the Hidden Temple does come quite close). After all, who wouldn't want to get slimed (or in later versions, to slime one's parents)? Marc Summers just made the perfect host, and knowing he did so while suffering from OCD makes his job that much more respectable. Probably my favorite obstacle would be Soda Jerks, followed by Icy Trike, the ever popular Sundae Slide, The Tank (the best variation being when they filled it with balloons), and Gum Drop. Who else tuned in regularly to classic Nick's best show?

This show was great. And yeah, Marc Summers is one of the greatest Game Show hosts ever. That's why I don't ever think a reboot of this show would ever work. They'd never be able to find a host as good as he was.
