The Family Channel
Wild Animal Games was a short-lived game show where members of a studio audience (mostly composed of kids) participated in various types of animal themed stunts and games. In addition, live animals were brought on stage and used in some of the stunts.
The stunts and games varied from show to show. Among the many stunts featured were two teams competing to clean the frosting off an elephant using hoses and players trying to toss a ball through a swinging tire suspended from the ceiling while sliding down a ramp into a pool. The top scoring player in each game received a prize.
Each episode was themed around a specific type of animal.
The same three segments were used on each episode, with the first two relating to that episode's animal.
Two teams competed in a stunt; the winner of which won a prize.
Two contestants would be shown a video or demonstration about an animal. Seacrest would ask three questions worth 50, 100, and 150 points in that order. The contestant with the highest score won a prize, while the losing contestant's friend or parent would be slimed with a substance.
Waterfall Prize PoolEdit
This segment was played in two parts.
3-Basket Slide-and ShootEdit
Six contestants would slide down a waterfall into the pool, attempting to shoot a ball into one of three baskets as they went over the edge. The baskets were worth 10, 20, and 30 points. Successful shots scored that many points, while hitting the rim of the basket still scored five points. If the ball missed the basket entirely, that contestant scored zero points. Each contestant had two shots, and the contestant with the highest score would play the Grand Prize Round. In case of a tie, the tied contestants each threw one more ball. Points don't apply; the first contestant who shot a basket would advance.
Grand Prize RoundEdit
Ten pencils were thrown into the pool, as were ten balloons. The winning contestant had forty seconds to pop all ten balloons, each with a different pencil. Success in doing so won a grand prize; failure to do so won a consolation prize.
Theme Song LyricsEdit
Way deep in the jungle
You can hear the beat of the drum
It's the call of the wild
Calling you to have some fun!
To play wild, wild, wild
Wild animal games!
Wild, wild, wild, wild animal games!
