Double Dare (1986)
Two teams competed. Both competed in a toss-up stunt with the winner taking control of the question-and-answer round. The team can challenge the other team to answer a question for double points. A double dare means the challenged team has to perform a physical challenge, which under Nickelodeon's standards was usually quite messy. Completing the stunt won money and control of the questions; failing the stunt in the time allotted gave the money and control to the other team.
The team with the highest score is the winner and competed in the Obstacle Course, a series of eight obstacles the team had to traverse and collect flags in the time frame. A prize is won for completing each obstacle; completing the course won a grand prize.
For the first two years, the show aired on Nickelodeon. Additionally, in 1987 while this version was airing daily, a weekend edition was produced called Super Sloppy Double Dare. Starting in 1988, this show moved to syndication. 1988 also saw a weekly version airing on FOX called Family Double Dare. For its final year, the syndicated version was known as Super Sloppy Double Dare. After the syndicated version ended in 1990, it was succeeded by Family Double Dare which moved the show back to Nickelodeon.
