Blankety Blanks is a game show that aired on ABC.

Two teams, each of a celebrity and a civilian, compete. Host Bill Cullen draws a card from a revolving carousel and places it in a reader. It randomly selects a player and a dollar amount. That player selects one of six clues to be shown in a word puzzle. Play continues until the puzzle is solved, awarding that player the money. The player can double the money by solving a "Blankety Blank," a riddle with the answer--usually a terrible pun--left blank. (Example: The deer spent a fortune at the dentist because he had ______ ______. The correct answer: "Buck teeth." Get it?)

The title is not to be confused with the Australian and British versions of Match Game.
