Episode 3 Opening:

MARTY: Hi there, have you had lunch yet? (camera man skakes his head no) Oh, no? Well, doesn't a nice hot bowl of soup sound good? (camera man nods yes) Yeah, it sounds good these players too, because they are about to slurp up some soup, but before they do they have a little job to preform. You see, we placed a fly in everyone's soup, and everyone must get that fly out of their soup by using his or her favorite eating utensil—you guessed it—their mouth. OK, players, hands behind your backs, for $25, start slurping! (teams preform the stunt, with the blue team winning $25) Now, let’s all play Slime Time!

ANNOUNCER: Yes, it's SLIME TIME!! The messiest half-hour on television! Where students and teachers compete in head-to-head competition. And now, here's the star of our show, MARTY COHEN!!!

This was a show that was classified as a Double Dare rip-off.

GameplayEdit

Two teams competed, each consisting of three students and one teacher representing their school. To begin round 1, a tossup stunt was played involving both teams. The winner of the stunt received $25.

After this, one kid from each team faced off to answer a tossup question. Buzzing in with the right answer won $25 and the right to pick the next stunt, but a wrong answer gave these things to the other team. Each stunt was represented by a flashing body part on a giant head on center stage, dubbed "Mr. Slimehead." Kids could pick either eye, ear, or nostril, and a card with the stunt's description would pop out of its mouth. Some stunts had prizes hidden behind them; those prizes would be the team's to keep, win or lose. Some of the questions that were asked to the teams were the exact same questions asked during try-outs or practice rounds; thus some teams had already heard the questions prior to being asked on the show.[1]

Round 1 ended after the kids had selected two stunts. For round 2, the money values doubled and new stunts were placed on Mr. Slimehead. Different, nicer prizes were up for grabs as well. Play continued until a buzzer sounded.

Round 3 involved all the kids, with the teachers underneath a giant faucet. The kids were asked toss-up questions, and anyone could buzz in. Getting a question right won $100, but a wrong answer gave the $100 to the other team. The first team to reach $1,000 or more won the game. The faucet would then turn to the losing team's teacher and dump slime all over them. In the first show that was filmed (though not the first to air), the three boys representing Lawrence Junior High School (of Chatsworth, California) and Chamanade easily disposed of the three private school girls by completing dominating the final round.

Winners kept their money & received a large prize package, while the runners-up won a smaller prize package.

TriviaEdit

This was announcer Dean Goss' 2nd children's game show he announced; the first was I'm Telling!.

The buzz-in buzzer sound was originally heard on Barry & Enright's Tic Tac Dough.

This show was usually paired with another failed children's show Treasure Mall
