A Classic Reborn: Super Password (1984)

2 1/2 years after Password Plus ended, NBC revived the franchise anew as Super Password, which lasted nearly 5 full years.

Bert Convy (ex-Tattletales, Snoop Sisters) was tapped as host, and there was one tweak to the game. 5 clues were linked together to form the Password Puzzle, which increased the drama. Otherwise, it was the same game as it was always played.

Right now, let's check out a sample episode with Charles Siebert (Trapper John, MD) & Jo Ann Worley (ex-Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In)

After skipping the 90's, Password would be reincarnated one more time in the 00's. We'll look at Million Dollar Password another time.

Rating: A.
