It was outrageous.  It was brilliant.  It was borderline lunacy.  It was The Gong Show, a 1970s phenomenon hosted by TV game show creator and producer, songwriter and secret agent Chuck Barris...






Charles Hirsch Barris    3 June 1929 - 21 March 2017


He'll be missed.

Every time I hear this I get an image in my mind of him dancing around at the end of the Gong Show.

Finally, after almost 40 years, we can see what that OOPS! was all about...

Yeah, I reckon.

I liked when those things happened naturally and less blatantly.  This "wardrobe failure" wasn't oopsed out...

I remember her. I'll bet that's the last time she wore that shirt.

She played that game so seriously that she didn't notice what happened.  Contestants were lucky to get her as a partner.

Chuck Barris was a good author too.  One of his books was about his daughter, Della: A Memoir of My Daughter.  Sometimes she would introduce her dad on The Gong Show...

That's a sad story but it's good that he told it.
