"On Your Marc" by Edd Kalehoff

Super Sloppy Double Darewas the first of two spin-offs from the Nickelodeon game show Double Dare. One was a short series of episodes to be aired on weekends in 1987, and the second was a much messier version of the show that aired in 1989.

1987 Nickelodeon Version[]

In 1987, Double Dare was airing only on weekdays. For weekends, a spin-off called Super Sloppy Double Dare with episodes to be aired on weekends.

Also during that era, each time any team takes a Physical Challenge, a home viewer's name was drawn out of a special mailbox next to Marc's podium, and then Marc would announce that viewer's name. Should the team playing the Physical Challenge complete the Physical Challenge, the chosen home viewer won an Etch-a-Sketch Animator; if not, then the viewer still won a Double Dare T-shirt.

Is it believed there were 26 episodes of this edition, but only 24 are known to still exist.

1989 Syndicated Version[]

They also had two wrestling-themed episodes, such as Super Slop-a-Mania, and Super Slop-a-Mania 2. This version also has a showdown between Marc and Harvey with Jim J. Bullock Hosting. including salutes to Baseball, Stupid Hat Day, Harvey, Valentine's Day, Breakfast, and President's Day. The mailbox next to Marc's podium was removed from the set, and a home viewer's name was discontinued. They also did an episode where Alan Silberberg appeared on camera, disguised as Al Silvers.
