Episode 99 – Legends of the Hidden Temple
What kid hasn’t imagined themselves as Indiana Jones? Crossing treacherous rivers in search of treasure. Delving into a long forgotten temple deep in the jungles of South America to find some sacred idol or priceless totem. Solving riddles and pitting your wits against ancient traps and cursed magics.
Well, Nickelodeon found the answer to all those questions back in 1993 when they created a game show that would turn teams of adventurers into modern day Doc Savages. Sending them to far away places like the pit of despair and the shrine of the silver monkey — all under the watchful eye of Olmec. That show was Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Legends of the Hidden Temple is an American action-adventure TV game show that broadcast from 1993 to 1995on Nickelodeon. Created by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone, and Stephen Brown, the program centered on a temple that was “filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards”. Kirk Fogg was the host and served as the teams’ guide while Dee Bradley Baker announced and voiced a talking Olmec who “knows the secrets behind each of the treasures in his temple”. Six teams of two children (one boy and one girl) competed to retrieve one of the historical artifacts in the temple by performing physical stunts and answering questions based on history, mythology, and geography.
