Plot Synopsis

DOUBLE DARE originally aired from 1986-1993 on Nickelodeon, making it the network's longest running game show. Hosted by Marc Summers, the series consisted of two-member teams of kids competing to win cash and prizes by answering trivia questions, completing messy, physical challenges and facing the infamous obstacle course.
On Wednesday, November 23, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, Nick-at-Nite premiered "The DOUBLE DARE Reunion Special," a half-hour program that reunites original host Marc Summers with his beloved announcer Harvey and right-hand woman Robin. Featuring vintage footage, behind-the-scenes content and messy new games taped this year, the 30-minute special lets fans revisit their favorite game show from their childhood.
