The show returned to Philadelphia in 1988; by then Viacom syndicated the show to the young Fox network. In markets where there was no Fox station, the show aired on independent stations.

Gameplay

Main game

Every episode of "Double Dare" begins with a toss-up physical challenge performed by both teams.

The show begins with Marc Summers saying these six words: "On your mark, get set, GO!" Image File history File links DDTossUp. ... Image File history File links DDTossUp. ...


Two teams of two kids each competed for cash and prizes. Originally, both teams wore red uniforms, but after Double Dare's syndication began in 1988, one team began wearing blue uniforms.


Host Marc Summers typically explained the rules of the game as follows:

I'm going to ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, or think the other team hasn't got a clue, you can dare them to answer it for double the dollars. But be careful, because they can always double dare you back for four times the amount, and then you'll either have to answer the question or take the physical challenge.

Each round began with a toss-up challenge in which both teams competed. The winner received $20 USD and control of the round. Summers would begin the round by asking trivia questions to the team that won control in the toss-up challenge. A correct answer would earn money and maintain control of the round; an incorrect response would give the other team control and, if a Dare/Double Dare was in play, the money as well. The United States dollar is the official currency of the United States. ...

Physical challenges

Physical challenges were stunts, usually messy, that a team had to perform in a specified time, usually between 10 and 30 seconds (10, 15, 20, or 30). Most challenges involved filling a container past a line with one of a variety of substances; water, uncooked rice, green slime, whipped cream, and "a milk-like substance", to name a few, were common. Others involved catching a certain number of items before time ran out. "Pie in the Pants," where a contestant had to catch 3 or 4 pies in under 30 (or 20) seconds, is an example of this. Look up slime, slimy in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Completing the stunt won the team $40 USD ($80 USD in round 2) and control of the game, otherwise the money and control went to the opposing team.


Double Dare 2000 introduced the "Triple Dare Challenge." Available only in round two, this allowed a team to make their physical challenge more difficult in exchange for six times the dare amount – $300, in this incarnation of the show – and a bonus prize. Sometimes this included shaving time off (turning a 30-second challenge into a 25-second one), or adding difficulty to the stunt (catching 5 pies instead of 4). If the team did not successfully complete the challenge, the money, the bonus prize, and control of the game went to their opponents. It should be noted that all physical challenges on Double Dare 2000 were 30 seconds in length, unless a time reduction was in play.


Obstacle course

The team with the highest score at the end of round two went on to the final challenge of the game, the obstacle course. Regardless of the outcome, both teams keep the money they have obtained. The course consisted of eight obstacles which had to be completed within sixty seconds. Each obstacle had an orange flag either at the end of or hidden within it. An obstacle courses is a series of challenging physical obstacles an individual or team must navigate usually while being timed. ...


One team member would start at the first obstacle and upon completion, pass its flag to his partner, who would then move on to the second obstacle. The team would continue to alternate like this until they completed the course or until time ran out- whichever came first.


The team won a prize for each obstacle completed. During the Fox run of Family Double Dare, $2,000 in cash (plus $500 each episode until won) was awarded at obstacle #7 in place of a prize, and the eighth flag won the grand prize. In the original and Super Sloppy versions, the grand prize was usually a vacation. In Fox Family Double Dare, as well as the first season of the Nickelodeon run, it was a brand new car. In 1992, it was changed back to a vacation; however, the family that won the tournament held that season had the chance to run the Obstacle Course for a car (see below).


Spinoffs

Super Sloppy Double Dare (1987)

The format of Super Sloppy Double Dare copied that of the original program, but the physical challenges and obstacle course were mostly designed with making the biggest mess possible, hence the title. Launched in 1987, it aired on the weekends, on Nickelodeon, and featured a home viewer contest centered around the on-stage physical challenges. This version was filmed at Unitel Studios in New York. One well known special shot during this run was 'Miami Vice day with the motto "Reeboks...NO SOCKS!".


Super Sloppy Double Dare (1989)

To compete with other children's game shows at the time, the format returned to the air (minus the home viewer contest) in 1989. This newly revamped "Super Sloppy Double Dare" filmed from WHYY's Forum Theatre for approximately the first 50 episodes, eventually to moving to Universal Studios in Florida to film the approximately 50 remaining episodes of this version. Many special "theme shows" were taped during the 1989 run, including "Salute to Baseball", "Backwards Day", Marc vs. Harvey", and many more.


Since there were two different locations for this one version, there were noticeable set changes between the Philadelphia and Orlando-taped episodes.


In Philadelphia, the timer always displayed "00" when not in use (as typical of the original Double Dare), and the background behind the center stage was colored blue-to-red.


In Orlando, the timer displayed the "Super Sloppy Double Dare" logo when not in use, and turned around to show the timer's digits when needed for a physical challenge/obstacle course (as also done for FOX's Family Double Dare). Also, the contestants' lectern triangles were not lit in the center (this would also mark the last time the lecterns contained the colored triangles for any version of the show). Also, the background color scheme was different.


Family Double Dare

Family Double Dare premiered on Fox on April 3, 1988, and moved to its regular Saturday night slot that week. This version featured two teams of four: two kids with two parents.

Family Double Dare ended its Fox run in July 1988 after 13 episodes. Nickelodeon resumed production in 1990, and finally canceled it in 1992. Producers taped some new episodes after the cancellation.

The final season of the Nickelodeon run ended with a Tournament of Champions. The two teams with the highest scores of the season, along with the two teams with the fastest obstacle course times, were invited back to participate in the special hour-long final episode in a battle of "Brains vs. Brawn". The two "Brains" (high scoring teams) played each other in a full game of Double Dare sans the Obstacle Course; a full game with the "Brawns" team immediately followed. The winning families from these two games then faced each other in a final full-length game (labeled "Brains vs. Brawn") to determine the grand champion, who won a large trophy and the right to run the Obstacle Course one final time for a car. The winning family, whose team moniker was "Granite Toast", indeed won the car at the end of the show. The final original episode aired in 1993, and Family Double Dare reruns continued up to February 1999 on Nickelodeon. From Feb 1999 until November 1, 2005 Family Double Dare was on Nick GaS daily. The Fox run was produced by Viacom. Some loving-cup trophies seen in the London Irish clubhouse at Sunbury in 2002. ...


Celebrity Double Dare

A 1988 pilot, Celebrity Double Dare is produced by Ron Greenberg and featured celebrity team captains ; it was hosted by Bruce Jenner, with Bob Hilton announcing. The format was also slightly different: questions had two possible answers, with each team member giving one, and teams did not keep control after correctly answering a question. The obstacle course was basically the same, except the players hit a buzzer after completing each obstacle rather than grabbing a flag, and a new car was the grand prize. This version was never picked up. Ron Greenberg is an American television game show producer who worked on numerous successful network and syndicated programs of that genre from the 1960s through the 1990s. ...

Super Special Double Dare

Super Special Double Dare is a short series of special Double Dare episodes featuring celebrities just like the aforementioned-above version, sport teams, cast members from other Nickelodeon shows. These episodes used two teams of four contestants, with all winnings going to charity. One Special was NBA All Star Double Dare and the other was just entitled Super Special Double Dare with the Girls fom Clarissa/Welcome Freshmen vs. the boys. 2 civilian kids were also on each team.

Double Dare 2000 followed the Family Double Dare format with a revamped set and bigger physical challenges. It also featured the new "Triple Dare Challenge" option in round two, introduced "goooze", and referred to the obstacle course as the "Slopstacle Course". Five episodes were shot in high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 as a promotion for sponsor Sony. Double Dare 2000 was cancelled in December 2000.

Set Changes

Throughout the show's run, the set maintained a basic structure. The main part of the game was played on a stage with the host's lectern at center and a timer mounted above. The contestant lecterns with scoreboards behind them were set at an angle on either side of the host. Space was provided in front of all the lecterns for physical challenges, and the obstacle course had space in front of that. Over time, aesthetic changes were made to the set, including:

  • A glass block wall with lights behind them, similar to those behind the contestants' lecterns, was installed behind the host's lectern in 1988. This first appeared on the Fox run of Family Double Dare, was used during the 2nd half of syndicated run of Double Dare, and remained throughout the run until 1993.
  • From 1986-1988, a blue triangle was on the front of both contestant lecterns. When the show entered syndication later in 1988, the triangle on the red team's lectern changed to match their respective color. On both the Fox and Nickelodeon versions of Family Double Dare and Super Special Double Dare, the show's logo appeared in the place of a triangle on the contestant lecterns.
  • The physical challenge floor was set two steps below the lecterns during the 1989 run of Super Sloppy Double Dare. Episodes taped in Philadelphia had the physical challenge floor on the same level as the obstacle course. When the show moved to Orlando, the physical challenge and obstacle course floors became separated by one step as two different floors, essentially creating a stage with three different levels.
  • The original 3-digit triangular scoreboards were tall and featured a vane-style dollar sign underneath the score and was both red. Eventually, the encircled "DD" logo replaced the dollar sign and the scoreboards were slightly shortened, which allowed the contestants and the score to be visible in the same shot. The blue scoreboard was add during the first Super Sloppy Double Dare run and returned at the beginning of the syndicated run of Double Dare to match their respective color. A rectangular, 4-digit scoreboard was introduced in the Fox run of Family Double Dare to accommodate potential scores of $1,000 or more. Nickelodeon's Family Double Dare initially used the 3-digit scoreboards until a team won the game with $1,050.
  • The timer rotated in the 1992 season of Family Double Dare, the Orlando episodes of Super Sloppy Double Dare, and the run of Super Special Double Dare episodes. When not in use, the timer displayed the series logo (earlier, it displayed "00").

The Fox run of Family Double Dare made a few set changes never seen on other versions: $ redirects here. ...

  • The timer had no chase lights around the digits.
  • The set's chase lights were covered.
  • The familiar yellow/purple checkerboard scheme was removed entirely; a confetti scheme replaced it.
  • The host and contestant lecterns were all plain yellow, except for the top portions which remained light blue.

Double Dare 2000 featured some notable changes to the set:

  • A four-panel video screen was set behind the host's lectern, and was used to display the show logo and the timer.
  • The scoreboards were oval-shaped and used light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In early episodes, the studio lights drowned out the LEDs, particularly on the blue team's side. This made the numbers hard to read on screen.
  • There were no chase lights on the set. Instead, a wall with randomly placed lights was used behind the host lectern.
  • The contestant lecterns were asymmetrical.

Red, pure green, and blue LEDs. ...

Music

All of the original Double Dare's music was composed by Edd Kalehoff (coincidently, he created the theme for the 1976 version of Goodson-Todman's Double Dare) and was basically the same throughout the show's run with some minor changes to the music. From 1986 to 1988, the music had a synth lead. Then, from 1988, starting with Fox Family Double Dare and the 2nd half of the syndicated run of Double Dare, til the end of the run, all of the music was remixed with a horn lead (however, the 1986 variation theme was used for the opening from 1988 to 1990). For Double Dare 2000, the music was composed by Rick Witkowski with a surfer feel for the show; however, the theme song had the same melody from the original. Edward Woodley Edd Kalehoff is a music composer who specializes in compositions for television. ... Double Dare was an American television game show that ran from December 13, 1976, to April 29, 1977, on CBS. Alex Trebek (later of Jeopardy!) hosted this Mark Goodson-Bill Todman production; Johnny Olson and Gene Wood took turns announcing. ...


Episode status

All episodes and versions of Double Dare still exist, and have been seen on Nick GaS before, but the only version of DD currently airing anywhere is Double Dare 2000 since 2005. Double Dare was a game show hosted by Marc Summers that aired on Nickelodeon from 1986 to 1993. ...

International versions

  • Quebec, Canada - A French language version hosted by Gilles Payer, called Double Défi, which aired on TVA. The set was identical to the US show (from the 1980s, this ran from 1989-1991), and the music was the same.
  • The Netherlands - A Dutch language version called DD Show, broadcast by TROS. Host is unknown.
  • Germany - The German version Drops! was broadcast by Sat.1. Other than that, not much is known about this version.
  • United Kingdom - This BBC version was part of a Saturday morning block of programming called Going Live with Peter Simon as host and Nick Wilton as announcer. Peter became famous on this show for constantly falling down during physical challenges and the obstacle course. Celebrity (though it used kids and not adults like the US Celebrity Double Dare pilot did) and family versions (with two-person teams instead of four) have also been made for the network.
  • Australia - Several episodes of this version were taped for broadcast in the United States with the tagline "G'day U.S.A.!" One special episode featured an American team and an Australian team playing for the Kangaroo Cup. Australia also produced a version of Family Double Dare, which lasted for thirty episodes and was typical of Network Ten programming at the time, but marked the debut of veteran emcee Larry Emdur. The hosts of the regular version were Gerry Sont, then Tom Jennings, and then Simon Watt (who served as announcer during Sont and Jennings' runs as well as the failed Australian version of Family Double Dare). When Watt took over as host, Margie Nunn became the announcer. The program aired on Network Ten from 1989-1992. The set was also identical to the US show, and the music was the same, just used differently.
  • Brazil - A Portuguese language version called Passa ou Repassa (Pass or Repass). Family, celebrity and school versions were also produced. This program had a moment named "Torta na Cara" (Pie on the Face) where the teams would face off answering questions. The contestant who incorrectly answered received a pie in the face from his or her opponent. There were several hosts of this version, with Augusto Liberato (or "Gugu") being the most popular and longest-running of the hosts (the others were Brazilian TV legend Silvio Santos, "Angelica", and Celso Portioli). It aired on SBT from 1987-2000.
  • India - Nickelodeon India's version is called Nick Dum Duma Dum. It began in 2004 and uses the Family Double Dare format. The show is hosted by Vrajesh Hirjee, a popular film and TV actor.
