What's the name of that show?
« on: August 13, 2006, 08:47:51 PM »
OK TV junkies, help me out here.

I remember this kids game show from the early 90's. It was on one of the four basic channels (NBC, CBS, ABC or FOX), and aired on Saturday Mornings.

The final round involved kids running around a maze/obstacle course wearing a Velcro suit, and lining the walls were tons of video games. Any video game the kid stuck to his suit he got to keep, assuming he crossed the finish line before time expired.

I don't remember anything but that, but it's been driving me crazy for a while. Can anyone help?

I have never seen a game like that.  The only video game based game show I know of is Nick Arcade

I believe the show you're referring to is "Video Power".  This was in the show's second season (the first had video game tips mixed with various video game themed cartoons.  Season 2 turned it into a part game show, and is the season most remembered.)

That's it! I found a video of the theme song on Youtube, and the clips confirm it.

Thanks man.
