Mystery Game-Show-with-Presents

Earlier this week, I had a flashback of a game show that I watched as a kid. Unfortunately, I’ve been straining my brain all week trying to remember the name or any details about it. The only thing I remember is that it involved contestants opening boxes. The boxes were wrapped like gifts, with bows on them and everything, but the tops slid off easily to reveal what was inside.

Does anyone have any clue what this game show was? -ram

That's easy, Ryan. Treasure Hunt and The New Treasure Hunt... favorites from childhood! Hosted, of course, by the same Geoff Edwards who hosted Starcade.

That's what Pinger Dave told me the other night, and the name didn't ring a bell (and still doesn't), but checking out this page confirms the fact (the images brought the memories flooding back).

Excellent. Thanks to you and Dave. I now must find this show and watch it.

Maybe it was "Lets Make a Deal"?

Nope, Dave... the other Pinger dave (aka "lower-case dave") was right, as was Paul. It was Treasure Hunt... I just had no recollection of the title.

And you doubted my knowledge...*oozing smugness*

This one one of those shows my parents said had no redeeming value...and since it was on opposite the local news, I rarely got to watch it.
