Shenanigans, airing on ABC Saturday mornings, was a revival of Video Village Jr., the children's edition of the weekday Video Village show. It originally began in 1960 as a local show in New York before being redeveloped and retitled for CBS daytime.

Two children represented the "game pieces" on a board of spaces. Two giant dice are rolled to determine to where each contestant progressed. Each space requires the contestant to either answer a question or perform a stunt.

The child who runs the board cashed in money won for prizes.

Shenanigans would be replayed on ABC from September 1965 to December 1965.
