Fanfic: Gobo Fraggle on Match Game Hollywood Squares Hour

    So, it's another one of these Game Show Fanfics again.
    Yep. It's been a long time since I've done one of these, but it's back.

    A little back story before we begin here.
    Match Game Hollywood Squares Hour was a game show on NBC That aired in 1983 and 1984. It combined 2 game shows (obviously). It only lasted a few months.

    So, I thought to myself, "Hey. This year is Fraggle Rock's 35th Anniversary. Why not?"
    So, the host (Tony Lane) accepted. And even better, he needed an announcer. So, I stepped up. And you'll hear my voice for the first time. :)

    So, enjoy folks. Here's the first segment.

    Announcer: Thanks for watching News 10 NBC.

    *doors open as Doug and Greg enter center stage with their microphones... doors close, wide shot of audience at Universal Studios Hollywood*


    [​IMG]

    Doug: Thank you, Matt. Helloooooo, everybody, and welcome to another Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour from Universal Studios in Hollywood. Hello stars!

    Steven: (As Beetlejuice) Hello Dougie Boy
    Jonathan: Hi

    Greg: Yes, don't adjust your sets, folks. Tony is here, but he's sitting in the Richard Dawson Suite. I will be hosting Hollywood Squares this episode, and it should be a lot of fun.

    Now, one of the reasons we're here at Universal Studios Hollywood is because our old studio over in beautiful downtown Burbank is getting both fumigated.... (audience chuckles), and updated for 4K Ultra HD. (audience ooooohs)

    Tony: SPOILER ALERT-- "Split Second" is one of the first being presented in 4K UHD where available.
    (Note: Split Second is another game on the group that I'm in)

    Greg: One of the few syndicated shows to do so. Not even Wheel and Jeopardy! are doing that. Take that, Pat and Alex!
    Doug: Ha ha, there ya go. Special welcome to our guest in the Brett suite, who'll be the center square later -- (audience cheers) -- yes, Bill McDee's back in the house.

    How ya been, Bill?

    Bill: All things considered, I am quite well thank you Doug, but I do have this urge, sitting in Ms. Somer's position, to ask you if we're going to the motel in Encino after the show :D

    Doug: Sorry, Bill, but I made dinner plans with a lovely blonde named Brittany after the show -- and I don't want to keep her waiting. So, with that, let the games begin.

    (audience cheers) (Greg and Doug shake hands; Greg walks over to the lower left square; Doug walks over to players' desks)

    And keep the cheering going for our challengers, Nels Snesrud and Lenny Jackson.
    (audience cheers)
    Let's get acquainted before we start filling in blanks. Nels, please tell us something about yourself.

    Nels: I'm 35 and I'm a cashier at target who loves old Nickelodeon game shows like double date and finders keepers

    Doug: Ohhhh -- at the risk of making you feel jealous, I met Wesley Eure when he was promoting a Christmas book for children. Great guy.
    Good luck to you, Nels. And Lenny, good luck to you as well. Please tell us about you.

    Lenny: I am a high school senior from Washington D.C.

    Steven: I Didn't Know that Marc Summers did a new show called Double Date Wow i can't wait to check that out
    Mark: I'm pretty sure he meant Double Dare

    Doug: You guys are sharper than I. I didn't catch "Double Date". My hearing must be going. (scattered laughter from the crowd) Lenny, nice to have you hear from D.C.
    Again, good luck as you'll have as many as three chances to match as many...
    [​IMG]
    ...of these understudies for the Universal Studios Frog Choir as you possibly can. (scattered laughter from the crowd) Each time you match a star, you win cash. Match all six, get more cash. Match more stars than your opponent, win *more* cash *and* game.
    Winner here goes to Hollywood Squares. Winner *there* plays Super Match for a possible $100,000 payoff.
    (audience cheers) (Doug pushes button on toaster revealing Round 1 questions)

    [​IMG]

    Nels, please start us off by picking one of these queries -- A or B.

    Nels: B.

    [​IMG]

    Doug: B it shall be. (walks to panel) New game, all the stars get to play this question.

    Gossip columnist Roma Garrett said, "Game Show Network is producing its first made-for-TV movie. It's titled 'When BLANKS Attack'."

    [​IMG]

    http://dougmorris.net/games/mghshmusic/mghshthink1.mp3


    MOMENTS LATER...

    [​IMG]

    All righty then. They're all set, Nels. I'll repeat the question one more time and take your answer.

    Gossip columnist Roma Garrett said, "Game Show Network is producing its first made-for-TV movie. It's titled 'When BLANKS Attack'."

    [​IMG]

    Nels: Boobs.

    Frankie: (from Hollywood Squares square)
    Get me a *cuckoo bird* drink! We're in for a doozy!

    Greg: 25 million Americans are thinking the exact same thing.

    (as audience boos)
    Doug: Nah nah nah nah. Nels, you misunderstood the question. The movie's on Game Show Network -- not Skinemax.
    http://www.dougmorris.net/games/sfxaudiencelaff_some_clapping.mp3
    Doug: Well -- let's compare answers anyways -- starting with Jonathan.
    Jonathan: Big Bucks Big Bucks! No...
    [​IMG]

    (buzz)(audience cheers)

    Doug: Now that's more like it. Any antagonist in the game show world would work.
    [​IMG]
    Doug: Bill's ready with his answer. Show and tell.

    Bill: In honor of Mr. Barker, I said when (card) Samoans attack.
    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (audience laughs; smatter of applause)

    Doug: Ohhhh -- another good one. Interesting no Samoans have come on down since Drew took over. On to Steven.

    Steven: How about this one...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered laughter)

    Doug: Well -- we did get a foolish answer from the player. So -- stands to reason. Let's go down heah to Greg.

    Gossip columnist Roma Garrett said, "Game Show Network is producing its first made-for-TV movie. It's titled 'When BLANKS Attack'."

    Doug: Nels is hoping by some miracle you said bazooms.

    Greg: Considering how much Feud they show....

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered laughter)

    Doug: Yeah, that Steve's everywhere. Like I should talk -- I host three other shows. (scattered laughter) Tony, my regular co-host, what say ye?

    Tony: I think this will boost cable ratings... *shows card*

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (some laugh; others groan)

    Doug: If you think about it, that's the closest we've come to matching. Miles apart, though. Sam, please end this half of the round for us.

    Sam: There's got to be an easy answer to this!

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered cheers)

    Doug: More whammies to end.

    [​IMG]

    Doug: Bolts of lightning, dragons, bankrupt spaces, they'd also be good ones. Better luck later, Nels.

    ================================

    Rest of the segment coming later. Meanwhile, what do you think so far?

    (Doug grabs A)

    [​IMG]

    Doug: Lenny, let's see if you can capitalize and score first in Match Game. (walks to panel) And once again, all the stars get to play.

    In Nerdocrumbesia, the nation's sleazy culture starts young. In their version of the nursery rhyme "This Little Piggy", the first little piggy doesn't go to market. The first little piggy goes to BLANK instead.

    http://dougmorris.net/games/mghshmusic/mghshthink2.mp3

    [​IMG]



    MOMENTS LATER....

    [​IMG]

    Tony: I heard that Howard Stern is gonna run for the mayor of Nerdocrumbesia for the fifth time. Despite how messed up their community is, Stern's approval ratings had went up by 420%.

    (scattered laughter from the crowd)

    Doug: Well it's about *high* time.


    [​IMG]

    All right, Lenny, all pencils down over there. Time for you to respond.

    [​IMG]

    Lenny: The butcher shop?

    (Greg facepalms)

    Greg: Now *I* need a drink.

    Bill: That's what I call thinking "outside the box", and I dare say outside all six of our boxes :)

    Frankie: (from Hollywood Squares)
    Sammy, another one! I'm getting loaded tonight!


    (as audience boos)

    Doug: Ohhhh-kay. Well, let's start comparing answers. Jonathan, we start again with you.

    Jonathan: That little piggy had a taste for chicken.

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered groans)

    Doug: Sleazy piggy goes to Kentucky Fried, eh? There's a *really* good logical answer. Let's see if Bill thought of it.

    Bill: This place is really slimy. This little piggy ran for office and won a pigged...I mean rigged election to go to ... (card) Congress, and what's more this little piggy was the one who began the practice of pork barrel spending bills...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered laughter and applause)

    Doug: Well, Nerdocrumbesian politicians have been known to be sleazier than the ones here. To Steven, now.

    Steven: Well Johnathan just stole my answer so...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (audience laughs; smattering of applause)

    Doug: Creative answer. They gave a *cheer* to that one. (scattered groans) As they turn on me, let's go to Greg.

    [​IMG]


    Doug: And Lenny said "butcher shop".

    Greg: Ever had pickled pork?

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    Greg: A place of ill repute. (scattered laughter)

    Doug: I was thinking of another place of ill repute. Let's see if Tony came up with it.

    Tony: Looks to me that the first little piggy had went hog wild. So wild, in fact, he had eaten the entire all you can eat buffet at...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered groans)

    Doug: Not the kind of free plug they wanted. That and the chicken. Sam, wrap this round up for us, please.

    Sam: If we're talking sleazy, well, I might be wrong but hey, I had a go anyways.

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered groans)

    Doug: The bank? Huh-kay. I might be showing my age on this -- but I thought for sure someone here would say the first Nerdocrumbesian piggy would go to -- Porky's!

    (audience laughs)

    [​IMG]

    Doug: Welp -- one round's in the books and we've got an exciting pitchers' duel going on here. (scattered laughter from the crowd) Round 2 starts when you come back to Universal Studios in Hollywood.

    Sorry bout the long wait y'all.
    Been tryin to get this thing together.

    And now...Segment 2 (Part 1)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    (audience cheers)

    Welcome back to Universal Studios Hollywood.

    (Doug presses button on toaster revealing Round 2 questions)

    [​IMG]

    Normally, our leading player starts us off. But we're scoreless. Since Nels started Round 1, Lenny, you may select Question A or Question B.

    Lenny: I'll take B, please.

    [​IMG]

    (Doug grabs B; walks to panel)

    B it is -- and since we're scoreless, all stars play both questions in this round. Here comes the first one.

    Oh -- this is another borderline salute to a segment on "Animaniacs". You'll catch on to it quickly.

    Good idea: Reciting the works of William Shakespeare in drama class.

    Bad idea: Reciting the works of BLANK in drama class.

    [​IMG]


    (audience laughs; smatter of applause)
    http://dougmorris.net/games/mghshmusic/mghshthink8.mp3

    [​IMG]


    MOMENTS LATER...

    Tony: Just to let everyone know... I would like to say that today is the final day for the Sesame Street characters in our show. They've been here with us all week long and everyone here on our presentation... we thank them all.

    (applause)



    [​IMG]

    Bill: I would give the Muppets a hand, but they already have one :D

    [​IMG]

    (scattered laughter)

    Doug: I see what you did there, Bill.

    Greg's ready -- as is the rest of the group. Lenny, here's the question again.

    Good idea: Reciting the works of William Shakespeare in drama class.

    Bad idea: Reciting the works of BLANK in drama class.

    [​IMG]

    Lenny: Stephen King?

    Tony: Somebody tell the bartender to send me a bottle of Jack Daniels!

    Steven: Can We Get 2 New players Tony?

    Sam: Now, now, no need to start complaining about the contestants please!

    (as audience boos)

    Doug: Stephen King. Well -- that'll freak out fellow classmates all right. But let's see what the panel came up with Jonathan.

    Jonathan: Two words...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (scattered laughter)

    Doug: Unless teach is one of her monsters, that'll upset teach for sure. Bill?

    Bill: I regret that I'll be stepping on the tail feathers of our NBC Peacock with my answer.

    Doug: Uh oh.

    Doug: Bad idea to recite in drama class -- the words of the long defunct and canceled NBC daytime drama...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (audience laughs)

    Doug: (laughs) I'm impressed people still remember that show. Not that I was a fan. Steven, what say ye?

    Steven: (card)

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (a few laugh)

    Doug: Sia -- ohhh-kay. This round's taking a weird turn as we go to Greg.

    Good idea: Reciting the works of William Shakespeare in drama class.

    Bad idea: Reciting the works of BLANK in drama class.

    [​IMG]

    Doug: And Lenny said Stephen King.

    Greg: Unless you want to sound like Meat Loaf....

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (a few laugh)

    Doug: Writer of the singer's songs. Tony, what do you offer?

    Tony: Two words... (card)

    [​IMG]

    (buzz) (audience laughs and applauds)

    Doug: Ohhhh -- good one. And Sam, bring this half of the round home.

    Sam: This one is a hard one...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    Doug: I was thinking Seth MacFarlane. (scattered cheers) Obviously some fans. Brilliant mind -- but a good chunk of his work is controversial.

    [​IMG]

    Doug: Welp, Lenny, it can only go up from here. Nels wants his score to go up in the next question.

    Rest of the segment coming up.

    And now Part 2 of Segment 2.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------



    [​IMG]

    (Doug grabs A; walks to panel)

    And once again, all six stars get to play this question -- as we plug another network again.

    I have a TV Guide listing. Tuesday night, CBS, "Bull". Disaster nearly strikes in the courtroom when Bull goes on a blind date and ends up with a BLANK.

    [​IMG]

    (audience laughs; smatter of applause) (think music plays)

    [​IMG]

    Bill: I am so ashamed right now... (laying my head on my desk)

    (scattered laughter)

    Doug: This could get to be an interesting half of the round.

    [​IMG]

    Nels, you're all set. Here's the question for you again.

    I have a TV Guide listing. Tuesday night, CBS, "Bull". Disaster nearly strikes in the courtroom when Bull goes on a blind date and ends up with a BLANK.

    [​IMG]

    Nels: A Black Eye.

    Bill: I never heard of this show or that character so my answer varies from I dare say a majority of the panel.

    Frankie: (from Hollywood Squares) I don't know if that is a good answer or not. Guess I'll take another drink waiter.

    Grover: Right away sir!

    (scattered groans)

    Doug: Well -- I can understand that if he went out with my ex-girlfriend. (scattered laughter from the crowd) She just loved to pick fights. I'll just leave it at that. Jonathan, we start with you again.

    Jonathan: Must have been some date.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (audience laughs and applauds)

    Doug: Niiiiiiice. No match though as we go to Bill.

    Bill: What else would you expect somebody named "Bull" to date...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (audience boos)

    Bill: I've never watched this show, never even heard of it to be perfectly honest.

    Doug: Because it's on another network. That's why. Steven, what do you bring to the table?

    Steven: (slurring) Well here it is. Han... (hiccups) hangover.

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (audience laughs and applauds)

    Doug: Steven's on his way to becoming this generation's Foster Brooks. No black eyes as we visit Greg.

    I have a TV Guide listing. Tuesday night, CBS, "Bull". Disaster nearly strikes in the courtroom when Bull goes on a blind date and ends up with a BLANK.

    [​IMG]

    Greg: You see, what happened is, they went to a really swanky bar in New York, and the blind date challenged him to a game of "Never Have I Ever..." It turned out that Bull had done so many things this other date didn't do that he just *had* to take multiple shots. So.... he ended up with a....

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (audience laughs and applauds)

    Doug: Another hangover. Tony?

    Tony: Take two and call me in the morning, Dr. Phil...

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (scattered applause)

    Doug: Hangover seems to be the answer. And Sam, wrap this up.

    Sam: Must've been drinking again. Boy do they give you bad headaches!

    [​IMG]

    (buzz)

    (scattered applause)

    Doug: Another hangover. Ohhh drat.

    [​IMG]

    Doug: Welp, we end Round 2 the way we started -- scoreless. We've *gotta* get a match somehow -- because someone's going to Squares. Find out who wins -- after this.
