Dick Van Dyke hosted this NBC game show where a celebrity panel – comprising Elaine May, Mike Nichols, Dorothy Loudon and Orson Bean – supplied comic captions for “cartoons” acted out in tableau form by a stock company of seven actors.
The winners were determined by the studio audience’s applause and reaction to the “laugh lines”.
The celebrities represented home viewers who received cash prizes accordingly.
A British version of the show was produced by the BBC and aired in 1960 and 1961.
