Classic TV: Remember When The Game Show Announcer Would Whisper The ‘Password’?
There have been hundred's of game shows on television through the decades. Some came and went in a hurry, while others lived for years...and still live in reruns and in the memories of those of us who grew up with them!
While there has been various version's of the game show 'Password', for me there's only one that pop's to mind.
Hosted by Allen Ludden (and often featuring his wife Betty White as a contestant), over 1,500 'Password' shows aired weekdays from 1961-1967. In addition to those afternoon games, the show also aired weekly in prime time from 1962-1965.
Thankfully for me, it aired on CBS, one of the two networks our ol' black and white could pull in with the antenna on the roof!
By the way, while host Allen Ludden passed away in 1981 at the too young age of 63, Betty White as you know is still going strong at 92!
So here we go, check out this classic clip....the Password is...fun!
