Game shows have a way of sticking with you over time, and for many fans, Nickelodeon's Double Dare holds that special place in their memories.
I include myself in that previous statement as well, and in honor of fans like us the network is honoring the show's 30th anniversary for a special episode of the slime-filled show that will be held at this year's San Diego Comic-Con (via EW). Not content to just bring the show back, Nickelodeon is also bringing back Marc Summers to host the proceedings, something he hasn't done in 16 years. The fact that he continues to be synonymous with the fan-favorite show isn't lost on him.
“Thirty years later, people still stop me on the street every day and tell me playing Double Dare is the one thing they wish they could have done growing up."
The event will take place on July 22nd, and will be streamed live on Splat's Facebook page at 9:30 pm. For Double Dare aficionado's, the event will bring back classic games including Down the Hatch, The Human Hamster Wheel, and the Double Dare Nose. Oh, and plenty of green slime.
To accompany the live event, Teen Nick will begin airing a Double Dare best of lineup which will also be hosted by Summers. It will include highlights from every version of Double Dare, including the original. Family Double Dare, and Double Dare 2000. These begin airing on July 25th.
