A quiz show spoof that lampooned other quiz shows of the time such as Information, Please and The Quiz Kids. The format of the show was simple. Three nitwits made up the "board of experts". They spent more time trying to figure out what the question was than actually giving a sensible answer. The questions were as ludicrous as “Why do some people eat with their knives?” and “What animal does a blacksmith make horse shoes for?”

Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.

Special guest world-renowned baseball player and manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers Mr. Leo Durocher
