Press Your Luck and The Whammys
Remember this game show? It only aired a few seasons, but I remember watching it during summer breaks when I didn't have school on weekdays. This was the kind of game show that appealed to kids, but all the contestants were grown adults who would scream out "Big Money!" and "No Whammys!" as they hit the buzzer hoping the glowing lights stop on a large dollar amount. If the lights flashed on a "whammy", then a cartoon character would take all their winnings away. It was really dumb! But fun!
