1979 TV Guide Ad
Game shows in the 1970s and 80s were almost trance inducing to children and the elderly. Maybe that's why I watched hours of screaming contestants, zany hosts and flashing lights with my grandma. One of my favorite shows was Tic-Tac-Dough with the great Wink Martindale. I loved this show so much, that I immortalized its likeness on notebook paper. This is the "beat the dragon" part of the game that I drew when I was nine or ten.
Good thing the contestant picked number three instead of nine! Flip the paper over and I scribbled the prizes behind the game board.
Of course my favorite part of the show was the dragon and here's an up-close view of the green monster behind number three.
Rarrrrr! (At least I didn't knit a dragon hat like this one here.)
