Double Dare - 30th Anniversary Reunion Special - 11/23

Recommended Posts

It's absolutely unbelievable to me that Double Dare is 30 years old. I've been on Nickelodeon before and had close relationship with them when I was younger. Really happy to see Marc Summers involved with the network again.

 

Incidentally I ran into two commercials for Atari Jaguar and Lynx at the very beginning of this video. It's of Nickelodeon commercials that aired on Saturday, December 11, 1993. This was about two weeks after the Jaguar launched. My family was without cable during this time and I never saw these commercials until just now. I have to admit these took me by surprise. The commercials are pretty good, it almost seems like Nickelodeon produced the commercial for Atari to air on the network. It's nice to see Atari was still advertising the Lynx in December 1993. I was collecting Lynx back then and can assure you it was very hard to find. It would have been a dream to see a Lynx or anything Atari in a place like Target in December 1993. Toys R Us still carried a handful of games but in most cases the system itself wasn't available. Babbages, Service Merchandise, and the Sears Catalog had Atari Lynx stuff by order. I mainly bought Lynx stuff by mail order directly through Atari or Video 61, even then.

 

Here are the commercials, Jaguar and Lynx are first up at the Rugrats break:

A.V. Club published a new article today about the history of the Double Dare obstacle course, and the special commemorative episode of Double Dare celebrating the show’s super sloppy 30th anniversary year. If you're interested in Double Dare or television history it's a great read:

“It smelled like death”: An oral history of the Double Dare obstacle course

Slip on your big, white Reeboks; grab a set of kneepads; and get reading.

Set your DVRs (or VCRs, if you want to do this right!)...

 

I was reminded by this A.V. Club "oral history" of the Double Dare obstacle course that Nickelodeon will be airing a 30th anniversary Reunion Special tomorrow night at 9PM (I think this is for all USA time zones, but double check your local listings).

 

Apparently if there's enough interest/ratings, this could end up being more than a one-off.  I'd love for them to reboot this show!
