A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW SOCIETY’S CHANGED IN A FEW DECADES

Family Feud between the Batman stars and Gilligan’s Island stars.

You can skip the first 8 minutes as it’s intros but then listen to the answers and compare to how you might answer today.

Remember when TV shows featured awesome crossover episodes that brought characters from different shows together in fun and funny ways?

These cool TV crossovers were perfected in the 80s, and in 1983 one very special episode of Family Feud showed audiences the crossover their lives had been missing- Batman and Gilligan’s Island.

Just imagine what these two amazing casts of characters could have accomplished had they met on the island, it would have been a beach blanket Bat-tusi bonanza!:

This episode featured Adam West (Batman) at the helm of a team, which included Lee Meriwether (Catwoman) and Yvonne Craig (Batgirl), Burt Ward (Robin) and the great Vincent Price (Egghead). On the other side of the aisle, a captain’s cap wearing Alan Hale Jr. (The Skipper) sat the head of his team including Jim Backus (Thurston Howell III), Natalie Schafer (Lovey Howell), Dawn Wells (Mary Anne) and Russell Johnson (The Professor).

    The new show is syndicated on some local channel and runs from 4pm to 6pm here. Now and then my wife turns it on, but not too often, because regardless of the question, most of the answers are penis, vjayjay, knockers, ass, or some other directly offensive word or sexual innuendo. Topping that off, instead of tits, they would typically say something like milk spigots, or some other stupid answer. This show could serve as proof that evolution truly does not exist. Instead, it is devolution, in which the our society is spiraling downhill at an exponential rate. My comment to her was wondering why such a vulgar show was on in the afternoon when young kids could watch. Who knows?

  2. The best crossover episodes were Homicide Life On The Street / Law And Order
    and Crossing Jordan / Vegas. I am with Redneck on the merits of this game
    show.
